Introducing the world’s first standalone Smart Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)* system for people on insulin injections. With breakthrough tools to outsmart the highs and lows of diabetes, the Guardian™ Connect CGM allows you to focus on your life—not on your levels.
The only Smart CGM system that helps you outsmart both highs and lows. Using smart technology to predict where your glucose levels are headed, the system will alert you from 10 to 60 minutes before a high or low.
We’ve designed Guardian™ Connect CGM with value in mind. You don’t need to buy a separate receiver like with other standalone CGM systems3.
The Guardian™ Connect system will start shipping in limited quantities this summer. To get updates, or be contacted by a Guardian™ Connect system therapy consultant, fill out the form below.
