Have been a freestyle Libre user for 18 months with a Miao Miao and thought I would try a Dexcom.
Insertion is OK and it is compact, etc. Software interface is easy enough, however...
Signal loss issues. I can't tell you how annoying it is to wait up to 30 minutes to reconnect it to my phone if I walk to the other end of the house or just go into the next room without my phone.
I went for a run this morning and when I got back I did a few things in the next room, you guessed it, signal loss, been waiting 20+ minutes for it to reconnect all the time wondering about my levels after my run. So off to do blood pricks.
With the Libre and Miao Miao, the range is much much larger and when it drops out it instantly reconnects. I mean how hard can it be?
In all, it is a NO from me. I will spend my cash on the Libre Miao Miao combo.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
