SAN FRANCISCO & SAN DIEGO – Fitbit is teaming with DexCom, which provides continuous glucose monitoring for people with diabetes, to develop and market products to help people better manage their condition and get a more complete picture of their overall health with easy-to-use mobile tools. “The strength of our brand and our ability to track critical health metrics continuously for up to 4-plus 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,” said James Park, CEO of Fitbit, in a statement. The first planned initiative is to bring Dexcom CGM data to Fitbit’s new smartwatch, Fitbit Ionic, so users will be able to see both activity and glucose levels right on their wrist. In addition to the Dexcom CGM display, users who are members of Fitbit’s in-app community will be able to connect with millions of people, where they can ask questions, seek support and share successes in managing their health. The companies are targeting availability in 2018 and will continue to explore opportunities to work together to develop tools and resources aimed at helping people better manage their diabetes.
