English lady replied to LACA310's discussion 'G4 Transmitter - When did yours die?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Hi Glen, I wore it continuously until about 3 months ago and now use about one sensor a month lasting 2 weeks or so; however my understanding is that it transmits whether you are wearing it or not so not sure that would effect its longevity?"

English lady replied to cathy van de moortele's discussion 'Swimming with Dexcom' in the group Dexcom Users
"Hi Cathy, the sender/transmitter is waterproof so you don't need to put tape on it. The receiver is not waterproof so mustn't get wet though."
