i just read in my manual that the transmiter is actually only water resistant, and shouldn't be in the water for more than 30 mintutes. My daughter does 1 to 1.5 hour workouts in the pool 3 to 4 times a week. she has only had the dex for about 3 months, and so far so good, but does anyone else use it like this? any long term problems?
I called Dexcom too and they said 30 minute max in 3 feet of water. But apparently if you come out of the water at 25 minutes, re-connect it, and go back in it's okay. As long as you do this every 25-30 minutes. I don't understand it...
I don't want contradict Dexcom here, but I live in the water during the summer months. My kiddos and I are in the pool for hours at a time every day with no troubles at all with the transmitter. The receiver has to steer clear of the water unless it is in a waterproof bag, but otherwise my transmitter is in the water for longer than 30 minutes at a time.
I know Dexcom can't tell you that, but it is possible.
