I live in the US. I had my training on the 630g about a month ago and asked the rep a lot of questions about the new system. She told me a couple things:
- They ship June 10th or 11th if i remember correctly for people in the ‘priority access program’ (those who bought a 630g)
- Some people will get them earlier
- The new sensor is supposed to be a vast improvement in accuracy (i think she said something to the tune of 50% more accurate).
- Slightly different design(smaller sensor piece, transmitter still looks the same).
- The new system Is able to ‘evaluate sensor health’ which the example she used was it may ask you to change a sensor early if it detects it needing replacement.
- Auto mode is set up with your doc over the course of a few weeks. So you won’t use it straight out of the gate and you’ll have a few follow up appointments it sounds like.
She had a demo with her that i was able to play with for a while. I was pretty surprised how much they changed the interface from the 630g. Everything pretty much is located in a different place.
Love my 630g by the way. I have nothing to compare it to but compared to MDI’s has virtually eliminated my exercise induced lows. I use temp basals a lot to control my sugars when exercising. The low suspend is the biggest life changer though. Have had two events where i had sub-40 night lows that i did not wake up during (mountain bike training induced). In both cases the pump shut off until i came back up. Didn’t know they had happened til the next morning. Scary stuff…
