Dexcom SHARE Unboxing

Scott Benner

Arden's Dexcom SHARE arrived today, here are my obligatory unboxing photos.

The unit feels well built, it's a bit heavier than I expected and the slot where the receiver slides into the cradle is nicely rubberized. I'll be getting it set up later today for tonight's maiden voyage. Look for my review soon. 

Disclosure: Arden received this SHARE from Dexcom as a gift. The note that announced the gift read... 

"I wanted to let you know that you have been selected to receive a complimentary Dexcom SHARE cradle and system.  Before launching this product, we asked our employees to nominate people in the diabetes community that went above and beyond to educate, support, nurture, or simply be a firm foundation for others with diabetes, and I nominated Arden and yourself."

I had no idea that Dexcom was gifting SHARES or that we were being considered, I found out just as the news of the SHARE being FDA approved hit the Internet - It was a lovely surprise. Had I never been contacted, I would have bought one immediately with our own funds. Dexcom did not ask me to provide a review or to speak favorably of the device, you can be sure that the review I will post will be reflective of my complete and unfiltered feelings and impressions and nothing else - Arden's Day and the diabetes community at large mean much more to me than $299. I am obliged to fill out a "very short survey after 30 days of use", which I will gladly do.
