Fitbit, Dexcom Team on Glucose Monitoring For Diabetics
San Diego-based continuous glucose monitoring device maker Dexcom, and fitness wearables maker Fitbit said on Thursday that the two are in a new collaboration, which will incorporate Dexcom's data directly on Fitbit's Ionic wearable. The two said the effort is aimed at helping people better manage their diabetes and get a more complete picture of their overall health. The Fit bit Ionic is Fitbit's new smartwatch. According to the two, Dexcom's continuous glucose monitoring device will feed its information to either an Android or iOS device, paired with the Fitbit Ionic. Fitbit and Dexcom said the integration will be available sometime in 2018.
