Notifications will only be received when alarms are turned on and the sensor is within 20 feet of the reading device.

Based on a comparison to Dexcom G6.

§Data from this study was collected with the outside US version of the FreeStyle Libre 14 day system. FreeStyle Libre 2 has the same features as FreeStyle Libre 14 day system with optional real-time glucose alarms. Therefore the study data is applicable to both products.
