- The LibreView works with Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 Anniversary update and higher. The LibreLink works with an iPhone 8 or higher running iOS 15.5 or higher to utilize the NFC capability needed to scan the FreeStyle Libre sensor
- A finger prick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels or if hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported by the system or when symptoms do not match the system readings.
- The FreeStyle LibreLink App and the FreeStyle Libre reader have similar but not identical features. A finger prick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels or if hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported by the LibreLink App or when symptoms do not match the FreeStyle LibreLink App readings.
- The user must be connected to the internet in order for their glucose data to automatically upload to LibreView.
