What are the differences between the FreeStyle Libre system and the FreeStyle Libre 2 system?

Just like the FreeStyle Libre system, the FreeStyle Libre 2 system is discreet, convenient and easy to use.1

It provides minute-by-minute glucose readings sent straight to your patients' smartphones.◊,ǁ

Because of its excellent accuracy, there’s no need to finger prick when using the FreeStyle Libre 2 system.

The FreeStyle Libre 2 system also offers peace of mind when your patients need it most with three optional real-time alarms for those who need them – low glucose, high glucose and signal loss.¤
