Dexcom G7 is primarily a completely remodeled sensor pattern. From the very beginning of the Dexcom series, we had a separate transmitter and a separate sensor, the combination of which was one element that allowed monitoring the blood glucose level and sending the results to the phone / receiver. In Dexcom G7, the manufacturer departed from this method and created one coherent element that is both a sensor and a transmitter.

- shorter start-up time - in Dexcom G7, start-up takes 30 minutes, it is the shortest start of all CGM systems
- smaller dimensions - no need for an additional transmitter. The Dexcom G7 sensor simultaneously collects measurements and sends data to the phone
- the possibility of extending the sensor up to 12 hours - a useful function when in the heat of everyday life you forgot to change the sensor
- new remodeled phone application
