Hello all - I am interesting in buying one of those Fitbit fitness monitors that transmits information about your exercise to a smartphone. Does anyone who wears a Medtronic pump and CGM also wear a Fitbit? I am wondering if the devices will somehow interfere with each other....
I think interference isn't an issue. My fitbit own did not interfere with my pump in any way. I don't wear a CGM so don't know about that. The fitbit got washed and not just one time, so it was ruined. I don't recommend them. I do know they have a wrist band coming out in the spring, I may try that. The fitbit information is very helpful and fun.
I've been using FitBit for about 2 years, with a pump plus separate Dexcom CGM, and no, it's never been a problem. No interference whatsoever. Like any other electronic device, they are not designed to go through the wash. :)
I've been using a Fitbit for about a week and LOVE it!!! I was a bit worried at first that it wouldn't be worth $99, but (so far) it's been totally worth it, very fun and motivating! It doesn't interfere with my pump at all (I don't wear a CGM), as it transmits data only when it's near the computer. I also use the Garmin sports watches that do the same (a heart rate monitor and swim watch), and they have never interfered - and are also very motivating! Shame that all this stuff couldn't be integrated onto one website, that would be pretty awesome.
