I recently switched to the FreeStyle Libre which you use by pulling readings from over NFC to a cellphone. I'm not clear on what the nice 'real' CGMs are like these days or how they work (as far as connecting to one's body).
I like the way the Libre connects (small disk that sits on the back of your arm for two weeks at a time), so if the CGMs which transmit with bluetooth are more bulky/less convenient, I'd almost be tempted to build a little NFC to bluetooth device, Fitbit-sized, which could be strapped over the Libre sensor and scan it every minute or so and stream data to my phone.
If you use xDrip and stretch the life of the sensors and transmitters then the Dexcom isn't much more expensive than the Libre (at least for me, in the UK).
Scott is using the G6 now I think, and most T1s I read online recommend Dexcom.
I’ve found it VERY reliable.
The concept of integrating the design of devices into manufacturing and safety critical environments excited me as the new direction for IoT devices intersecting with computer human design. I still hold out hope that the trend continues and we are able to create more physical and less screen dependent devices to create a more meaningful world.
Execution >> ideas and all that, and this is nicely done. :)
I really like the prompt idea, actually - won’t work for my mom, but works incredibly well for anyone who codes at their machine all day.
On a side note, I'd be super wary of having that kind of data in the cloud. A local raspberry pi server would be nice.
