Is Dexcom G6 waterproof?

The Dexcom G6 sensor and transmitter are water-resistant and may be submerged under eight feet of water for up to 24 hours without failure when properly installed. However, for the sensor to be water-resistant, the transmitter must be installed properly.
Keep in mind that Bluetooth connections do not work as well in water. For this reason, try to keep your transmitter and compatible smart device in close range of each other if you are swimming or showering.
The Dexcom G6 receiver is not water-resistant or waterproof and can be damaged if moisture gets inside it.
Can I shower with Dexcom G6?
You can shower while wearing the Dexcom G6. Once snapped into place, the Dexcom G6 transmitter and sensor are water-resistant, but the receiver is not. You can swim, shower, and take a bath– just leave your Dexcom receiver in a dry area.
