Dexcom's G7 system: watch, phone and sensor/transmitter


We’re taking a look at the design decisions that go into diabetes technology, specifically Dexcom’s G7. Beyond the accuracy and interoperability we all want, they also look at things like dexterity, feel and hand strength. Alex Diener is Dexcom’s Senior Director of Global Product Design. He lives with type 1 and he shared a lot of the behind the scenes thought process that’s gone into the design of the G7 sensor and transmitter and the apps that go along with it.
