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?
we just ordered a spibelt, and have been trying to stuff the thing into a vera bradley id case, but it will not fit, I think unless we cut a hole in the divider in the middle, anyone else have feedback on the vera bradley id case??
I´m thinking about a SpiBelt armband myself, but wonder if it´s too small. I need something that fits tight and is easily accessible when being active.
I meant a SpiBand for my wrist, like this:
Sorry, didn't see your post Natalie until I had already posted about the Vera Bradley case. Yes, you have to cut the ID sleeve out and then it's PERFECT - my favorite case of all. Here's a link with instructions: http://www.shesugar.com/insulin-pumps-and-cgms/dexcom-favorite-appa... but it's really easy to do, you just cut the entire inside divider out...
Note: While the Clip Zip ID worked best for the Seven, the Zip ID Case (square design, not rounded) works best for the G4
Thanks for really useful information, A.Kelsey Metcalf.
These are my favorite way - currently about to start collecting them in different colors ;) http://www.verabradley.com/product/Category/Wallets-and-Wristlets/Z...
They're only $12.00, I can put it on my keychain, slip it into a back jean's pocket, or into a pocket of my purse easily. It protects the G4 from moisture and falls and allows for full visibility of the screen. They're easy to find at any Vera Bradley store or retailer.
Seriously, I love mine: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A9ozrqJCYAAswKa.jpg:large
Oh, and even with the case I can still fit into the key pockets of my running shirts or pants.
"Oh, and even with the case I can still fit into the key pockets of my running shirts or pants." NOW I'm sold. My concern was that it would be too bulky in anything. Just ordered one from eBay ;)
I just started on my G4 yesterday (my first CGM, I'm very excited!) and so far the leather case that comes with it has worked fine for me.
I've been wearing jeans, with the cold Seattle weather these days, so I just have it on my belt and flip open the flap to check my readings (admittedly much too often :-)
I don't know if I'll feel the same way in the summer when I wear shorts, but for now the case works fine and keeps it from getting scratched.
Good call on the "If found return to" sticker, jrtpup, I will add that for sure!
Some of you said you put a protector sheet on your pump or Dex. My question is what brand or type do you use? I have bought protector sheets for small gadgets and cut to fit my pump but the sheets come off quickly and I can't get a sheet to stay on. I end up having at least one scratch on every new pump I get.
The dex 7, I used the zip case with the clear plastic window for it so no problem there. I dread the G4 partly because you have to unsnap the case to see the data.
I will appreciate any specifics on brand, size, and where you got them. Is there a trick to geting them to stay on. I put them on dry and even dampened the screen and nothing helps.
I experienced the same, Nell. I bought a protector sheet I cut to fit myself and it came off after just a few days. I didn´t find any other solution than to tape the protector sheet to the Dexcom ("gift-wrapping-style") if that makes any sense.
The screen protector I used is on meant for the Animas Ping screen. It's been on with no problems since late October. When it comes to screen protectors, more expensive usually does mean better quality.
