Answer

A study comparing the performance of three CGM devices—Navigator (Abbott Diabetes Care), Seven Plus (Dexcom), and Guardian (Medtronic)—found the Navigator to be the most accurate. [6, 7] For commercial reasons, however, this device is no longer on the market in the United States, though it remains available in Europe, Israel, Australia, and other areas; the other two CGM devices are still available in the United States.
