I have put a screen protector on mine to keep it scratch-free and carry it as it is in my pocket. I´m looking for other solutions and discovered a case and a tummietote belt on www.tallygear.com.

How do you carry your G4 and have you discovered any cases available online yet?

I just got (yesterday) my G4. I had trouble with my case that came with my 7+ and the G4 case did not look much better. I bought a very sturdy cell phone belt case from REI and will continue to use it. For the beach, hiking, I have a great water case from Sealine. Does double duty for my IPhone.

Do you have a link for the case from Sealine?

I didn't like the seven + case, and don't like the G4 case. The tummietote belts are awesome. I tend to use them for my pump, but there's plenty of room for the G4 as well.

I put a screen protector on the G4 and carry it in my pocket most of the time. I also put a sticker on the back... MEDICAL DEVICE If found return to.. with my first name and phone #. Looks an awful lot like an ipod!

Thanks, jrtup. One of the first things I did was to put a sticker on the back saying "Medical device" because of you :)

Caleb just carries it in his pocket at the moment. I ordered one of the tallygear cases. Looking forward to the caribiner clip set up. When I'm carrying it, I have to inventory my phone, dex, make sure we have the PDM - I feel like I'm constantly checking things off - in addition to making sure I have three kids w me!

Thanks, Lorraine.

I work in an office at a computer desk, do yard work in our garden, tend my chickens, do photo shoots and ride my mountain and road bikes (a lot) and workout in the gym. My G4 in the case provided by Dexcom all the time. I throw it on my belt or in a pocket and I'm good. I've no need whatsoever to look for other belts or cases or screen covers or what have you. The case provided by Dexcom more than does the job for me.

I seem to be in a not-so-vocal minority of folks who find the Dexcom case to be just fine, and way better than the 7+ case. I chime in every now and then (like right now) because I see so many folks getting down on the G4 case. The case works like a charm for me -- I don't get that people have issues with it at all and waste money on belts and other stuff, but like D, we're all different and I get that so no one is wrong about their like or dislike of the case. :shrug:


Just started using the G4 about 10 days ago. The case that came with it works very well for me. It is also convenient sometimes to just slip in a pocket without a case.

Thanks for the opinion, Rick.

Thanks, Michael. Personaly I don´t like anything hanging from my trousers. Even when iI was wearing an insulinpump I carried it in a tight lycra-"thingie" I had made myself. Had it around my leg right under the knee. Even when working out.

I think the difference lies with the differences between men and women. I hate the cases on pretty much everything. I don't wear belts and when I dress up I don't have pockets a lot of the time. I usually put it in my jean pocket but it can look pretty bulky, especially with the case and when in a case it doesn't "slide" in so easily. I put everything in my purse when out since I usually have that with me. If not then I have a small decorative purse that I wear across my body that can hold it all.

Wise words and thanks for reminding me that a small purse could be something to consider, barbraann.
