Yes, in order to participate in the Nutrisense program you will need an NFC and Bluetooth compatible smartphone. Luckily, most smartphones sold since 2016 already have NFC technology which is needed as well as bluetooth connectivity embedded in them for the CGM to work. So, if you bought your smartphone in 2016 or after, then you are probably good to go. If you have any questions about your device, our support team is always here to help confirm the NFC or Bluetooth status, otherwise we recommend checking with your personal device carrier.
As a general rule of thumb, if you have an iPhone 7 or newer, a Samsung Galaxy S6 or newer, a Google Pixel 1 or newer, then your phone will work. Unfortunately, neither the iPhone 6 nor the iPhone SE (older generation) is NFC compatible.
If you want to check if your device is NFC compatible, please view the list here.
Unfortunately, we are unable to use iPads or Apple Watches to collect the CGM data. However, you can view your data on your iPad app.
