Freestyle libre 1

To use your Libre as a CGM that is getting new BG values every 5 minutes you first need to buy a NFC to Bluetooth adapter like:

Additionally it is possible to use a specific watch, the Sony Smartwatch 3 which has an NFC chip which can be enabled and can be used as a NFC collector. However the custom NFC to Bluetooth adapters listed above offer a less complex solution and would be used by the majority of those wanting to use their Libre 1 as a CGM.

As it currently stands, if using Libre 1 as BG source you cannot activate ‘Enable SMB always’ and ‘Enable SMB after carbs’ within the SMB algorithm. The BG values of Libre 1 are not smooth enough to use it safely. See Smoothing blood glucose data for more details.
