Small improvements bring so much!

I rushed home from Arden's championship basketball game (they won... you can see on the screen grabs where the adrenaline hit her during the game) to bring you some great news from the people at Dexcom. An upgrade went live for the Dexcom G5 mobile app that allows Apple Watch owners to see their CGM data on their watch, additionally there is now a quick view option that lives on your notification screen (it even works when your iPhone is locked!!!)

Check out the new options, download the app update and get ready to make your Dexcom experience even better and more intuitive.
