Announcing the new and improved Guardian Connect CGM system!
The GuardianTM Connect system is a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), for people on multiple daily injections, that tracks glucose levels day and night and alerts of highs or lows before they happen. We’re excited to announce FDA approval for a new version of the GuardianTM Connect system! Available summer 2020, this new version includes adjustable alert volumes, day and nighttime personalized alerts, as well as expanded access to Android™ mobile device users.
What’s new with the GuardianTM Connect system?
Max Volume at Night
We understand the importance of knowing before sugars go low or high, particularly at night. But we also understand the desire to personalize if and how you are woken up at night.
The GuardianTM Connect system now has a “Max Volume at Night” feature, which allows for even more alert personalization. Now you can choose how loud your alerts are. Nighttime low and high glucose alerts will only sound as loud as you tell them to.
Adjustable Volume and Mute Alerts
The GuardianTM Connect system already has predictive alerts that can be customized to alert you 10–60 minutes in advance of a high or low.
The new version — expected summer 2020 — will allow you to have even more control over when and how you receive these alerts. Customers using the GuardianTM Connect CGM will have the ability to adjust their alert volumes as needed or mute audible alerts all together when it’s just not the right time for a loud alarm. (Don’t worry. If your sugar level drops to 55 mg/dL, your system will alert you of an “urgent low sensor glucose alert” with sound or vibration.)
We’re also excited to announce the approval of the GuardianTM Connect system for Android! Expanding access to Android mobile device users has been one of our top priorities. The GuardianTM Connect CGM will be available on Samsung, LG, and Google smartphones this summer as well.
