Can Constant Glucose Monitoring Give Fitbit ionic the Edge?

The anticipation is high, will the Fitbit ionic stand up to the hype? For now, we can focus our attention on some more of the positive attributes installed on the new Fitbit smartwatch.

Earlier this year it was announced that Fitbit would be teaming up with Dexcom, Inc.,  a Healthcare Tech firm Founded in 1999, dedicated to transforming diabetes care and management by providing superior continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology to help patients and healthcare professionals better manage diabetes.

The Dexcom software allows for continuous monitoring and in January 2017 the Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM System is approved under Medicare, making Dexcom the first CGM system to fall within the classification of “Durable Medical Equipment” designated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS.gov) who Classify Therapeutic Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM).

This is good news for Fitbit, and in recent interviews with Fitbit CEO James Park regarding the partnership with Dexcom (CGM) designed for the Fitbit ionic smartwatch, he is quoted as saying;

“The strength of our brand and our ability to track critical health metrics continuously for up to 4+ days, coupled with Dexcom’s market leadership in CGM, present a powerful combination that we hope will help millions of people better manage their diabetes,”CEO of Fitbit, James Park, stated. “With Ionic, we are focused on driving positive health outcomes and more health focused tools, and this collaboration is a wonderful example of how we plan to bring that vision to our users.”

What could this mean for diabetic patients and Fitbit customers? It could mean highly sophisticated round the clock glucose monitoring, constant Heart Rate measurements, activity levels, frequency and personalized Vital Sign monitoring, by two global leaders in their respective industries.

The success of the ionic smartwatch can have several positive outcomes for diabetics and those who are at high risk of developing diabetes. Those considering a smartwatch as a way to help monitor there fitness and health, now have a way to keep a closer eye on their blood glucose health.

As a smartwatch, the ionic is able to have a more personalized, fashionable look to conceal your smartwatch, while matching your wardrobe and personal style.
