Tandem Introduces t:connect Mobile App

| | ,

Tandem Diabetes Care just announced the release of the t:connect Mobile App. The app allows users of the t:slim X2 to view pump and CGM data on their smartphone, enabling wireless cloud data sharing between patients and providers.

You can’t bolus with it, but you can view basal and bolus insulin events, insulin on board, carbs, current settings, and both pump and sensor status. The app also lets you view pump messages and alerts as push notifications on your phone. And accessing the app on the phone is more discreet than pulling out an insulin pump, especially when it’s worn in a hard to reach place.

Data gets uploaded in real-time to your cloud-based t:connect account for easy access by your health care provider. This eliminates the hassle of connecting the pump to a home computer and uploading data or waiting in the doctor’s office while data downloads before the doctor can view your information. No longer does your Personal Care Physician need to be a computer guru to see your data. During the Coronavirus pandemic, when many healthcare visits are done remotely by telehealth, this is especially big news. Data can also be shared with family sharing, up to 6 users.

The app is available for Apple iOS versions 12 and 13 and Android OS versions 7.0, 8.0, 9.0, 10.0.

  1. Why is t:connect not available on android v11? My phone was released a year ago and has obviously been through software updates in the intervening year, but why does it stop at android 10? Seems odd that a company claiming to be so easily updateable and “current” can’t run their app on the most recent android software.

  2. Why is this not available in Canada, I just purchased the tandem pump and dexcom CGM only to find that i cant even get the T:connect app…how very disappointing…They really should tell you that when purchasing.

    • Tandem told me Health Canada has not yet approved. They couldn’t even tell me if they’ve filed an application yet. Although the wait is a bit frustrating but the app doesn’t let you Bolus or change pump settings. It would be great if it could let you do that remotely.
