Are CGMs waterproof?

The CGM sensor is water-resistant but not waterproof. You can shower and sweat with the sensor on. However, it is not recommended to swim with it on for more than 30 minutes or dive deeper than 1 meter. This might cause the device to malfunction and stop working accurately.

The sensor has not been tested in saltwater or the sea. It’s best to avoid or minimize exposing the device to these conditions.

For additional safety, we recommend wearing a patch.

Tip: If you don't have a patch we could recommend using an adhesive tape like physio tape to cover the sensor.
