So I upgraded to the G6 about 3 months ago and I think I’ve had it long enough to say that this is a repeated pattern, i.e., a thing.
Namely, that when I roll a sensor over to a second session, I get the same slightly erratic behavior in the first 12-24hrs as I do when I start a genuinely new sensor. For most of both sessions, initial and rollover, I’m finding these things remarkably accurate, or at least in remarkably close agreement with my CounterNext+. And every time I start a new sensor, the G6 is a little flaky, just as it was with the G5. Only unlike the G5, it’s also a little flaky every time I rollover to a new session with the same sensor.
Yesterday I did a rollover and suddenly it kept drifting up into false highs, would come down if I did a calibration (washed hands, did the finger stick twice just to check), then start drifting back up again, then suddenly drop—all the kinds of things you get if you’ve genuinely changed sensors, except I hadn’t. I was at the point today of thinking I should just give up and insert a new sensor, but then it settled down and has been exemplary every since, including when I was in an exercise-induced low—something the G6 seems to track much more reliably than the G5.
Don’t think this ever happened with the G5—once it was locked in it behaved the same all the way to the end of the second session. Not as accurate as the G6, but nothing noticeably weird in the first 12 hours or so of the second session. I’ve only done the rollover thing now with the G6 three or four times because the sessions are longer, but I’m pretty sure I’ve noticed this every time.
Has anyone else experienced this with a G6?
