I just received my G4 this morning, and will begin using it in about 1/2 hour after it calibrates! I am pretty excited - I really like the design and especially the thinness of the receiver. I am NOT going to keep it on my belt and would love to know if anyone out there has found a low profile case that will fit the G4. I keep it in my pocket and use the vibration settings for alarm. I am wondering if the older iPod Nano cases will fit - and will check that out later this weekend. If I come up with something I will share it here, and if anyone has already found one, please let us know!
Thank you in advance.
I will continue to use my SPIbelt. It should fit as it is a small, clothe pocket. www.spibelt.com is the site I ordered from. Love it. Comfortable under all clothes and to sleep.
Love my spibelt as well for my pump. I like having my dex more accessible though. Fussy ;)
Checked the nano cases - too small ;( I'm also looking for something! I'm thinking of maybe a really good (like Zagg or Body Gardz) screen protector front/back if I can't find anything else.
Started it yesterday, and left the old one in as well, will report on the comparison :)
jrtpup - did you check the earlier nano cases (Generation 4 or 5)? Those Nanos were slightly bigger than the newer ones. I am visiting a friend on Friday who has a 4th gen. and will let you know what I think.
According to the specs I found they are too short ;(
I cut most of the front surface off of a silicone first-generation Nano case I had lying around and it will stretch to just fit. But it's a tight fit. And boy does it look that way.
Heading to Fry's tomorrow to see if I can find something that fits a little better - there must be some mp3 player out there that is close to this size, right?
I'm all ears for whatever anyone finds out. I don't WEAR a belt, and if there is no clip on the case (?) I'm in for trouble, because things fall out of my pockets!! The 7+ fell out of my pocket multiple times until I finally decided to put it into the case and wear it on my waistband with the clip. The only reason I haven't lost my pump is because it's attached to me, for heaven's sakes!!!! :-)
I tried using the clip on my waistband. Lost it a couple of times getting out of the car! I think just the bending/standing up did it.. so NO more dex case clip for me
I saw some great clips on line, but afraid it'll make the whole thing too big. Frustrating!
There is a clip on the case. I'm not trusting enough LOL
I also don't wear a belt, and I don't trust myself just leaving it in my jean pocket. I tried putting my first sensor for the Gen4 system in this morning and hit a 'bleeder'. I tried calling tech support but they have a long waiting list for call back. Since my system and sensors are self-pay, I hate to discard a sensor if it still might be ok to use it?
The sensor may be fine. I'd leave it in and see if it works. If it comes up "Sensor Failed" dexcom should replace it for free.
Until you get in touch with them, you can test frequently and see if the sensor is in accord with your meter. I had a bleeder recently, and they replaced the sensor for me, even though it wasn't really the sensor's fault. But they know how expensive the sensors are, and do want to keep us happy with their product!
