Updating your time and date

Setting the correct time and date in your pump is necessary for accurate basal insulin delivery and allows you to keep an accurate record of your insulin delivery and other pump functions. You can select a 12-hour or 24-hour clock. You must reset the time and date if you receive a CHECK SETTINGS alarm or you clear your settings (Clear Settings function).

Important: The time on your insulin pump/CGM monitor determines your personal settings (including basal and bolus rates) so make sure it is always up to date.
