A CDE friend of mine went to a presentation Friday night by the president of Dexcom who said the following:
1. The new Dexcom will have an official ten day life
2. The new Dexcom receiver will have a range of 30 ft
3. The new Dexcom is already available in Europe, and while he only said it would be available "soon" in the USA she was led to believe by end of year.
I have also heard the rumor that it will only have an hour warm up time.
The longer range is HUGE for people who take care of a T1D. Now I can put Dex on my night stand rather than get up and walk 15 feet 3-4 times a night. Now I don't have to attach something to a two year old who doesn't know Dex is not water-proof, sit-down proof, or thrown-across-a-room proof. And I can sit in a playground while Mr. Superfast runs off and not be screaming "I NEED TO SEE YOUR SENSORRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!".
