Like @Mariana11, sometimes I wait and sometimes I adopt the technology early. The novelty of any D-tech does not drive my interest unless there is some science and hard facts to support the new gadget.
As an example, I’m currently still using the Dexcom G4 system since I’ve concluded that the incremental improvements for the G5 and G6 are not enticing enough to cause me to leap ahead. Dexcom’s dropping of required daily sensor calibrations is not incentive enough for someone who only a few years ago was fingerpricking 15 times per day. One or two calibrations per day does not represent a heavy burden to me. Neither does carrying one fewer small diabetes device .
On these kind of questions, I usually find myself in the minority. I’m glad to have the options, however!
