Every pump has it pluses and minuses, but I need a pump that is easy to read in all kinds of light.
I currently have an Animas Vibe with 1.5 years of warranty left. My options in the future is to convert to either the 630G or the T-slim X2. Since I use the Dexcom G5 it would seem that the Tandem pump would be the best option, and the majority of the reviews are very positive, but I have reservations on being able to view the screen in bright sunlight. I have been treated for retinopathy, so my eyesight is sensitive to glare. Also, how easy is it to read the menus - it seems that the colors they chose for the pump are not of good contrast, and I am worried that the font is too small for trifocals.
I have seen a 630G outdoors, and it has good visibility. The options are all good, but I would be sticking with the Dexcom CGM (going on Medicare and they only cover the Dexcom).
