"I'm impressed! When I wake board I fall often and hit the water hard! I'd be afraid the sensor and transmitter would get torn off."

"I do nothing extra and swim 3 times a week. I wear a bathing suit that covers my belly so there is never an issue. Tapes dries pretty quick. The receiver is in gym bag in locker roomand takes 10 minutes to readjust after hook back up. Good luck."

Dexcom transmitter and swimming

Hi all! Summer is beginning and I was wondering if anyone had any tips, experiences, etc. with using the dexcom when you go swimming. Do you use any shower patches on the site or tegaderm over it? It is only waterproof for 30 mins at 3 ft water and I plan on swimming longer than 30mins but I LOVE my dexcom and I dont want to take it out for when I just go swimming. Any tips or ideas? Also, where do you put the receiver? Ziplock bag on the side of the pool?Thanks!!!!See More
