    Default Dexcom Receives CE Mark Approval for the Dexcom G4

    Exciting news for Europeans (=in these challenging times when the eurozone is collapsing). Dexcom G4 system soon (few months) in the store near you.

    This is exciting BUT the Dexcom Gen 4 sensor only has a 6 month LIFE not warranty... and that receiver is just SOOO ugly...

    1. So the manual states 6 months warranty. Would be interesting to hear from Animas Vibe users, who are also using G4 that how to they see this (Meaning, did it really ran-out-of-juice after 6months)
    2. About the receiver. Yeah, this has the first/second-generation ipod feel to it (As I reminder those were released 10 years ago). Wonder why bother with click-wheel when you could go completely touch screen.
    3. But then again, I really dont care about formfactors at this point. Thing that really matters is that this thing seems to way more accurate than the current system 7.

    Our Animas rep - we are considering the Vibe at this very moment - has confirmed that it has a 6 month life only..
    If you google Vibe then you get very few up-to-date reviews - mostly from 2010-2011.. We may have to be the first to give feedback

    Dexcom isn't available here as a stand alone unit. I can't even get pricing for Vibe at present

    It is so frustrating to me that these things are approved in Europe years before we get them. The Enlite has been out two years there, and MM says 12-18 months more before we get it here. Is it going to be 3 year later for the Dex4 too?

    So according to the Internet when Vibe was released in UK
    1. Gen4 Transmitter + 4 sensors 500 pounds
    2. Gen4 Sensors will be 186pounds for a box of 4 (as a comparison box of 4 sensors for Dexcom 7 are 240)

    I dont think so. I don't know which system will make it to the U.S. market first, but I' m pretty sure Dexcom submitted the Gen4 before Minimed submitted the Enlite. Gen4 has been at The FDA for a couple of months and Amy's update from ADA said Minimed just submitted the Enlite.
