How does it work?

Veri is powered by continuous glucose monitors (CGMs)*, also called "sensors". The sensor uses a thin, flexible filament to measure the amount of glucose in your interstitial fluid.

The sensor stores up to eight hours of glucose data locally but must be scanned at least once every eight hours to upload the data to the Libre and Veri apps. The sensors are worn for 14 days and are waterproof. You can shower, go to the sauna, and exercise during the wear time.

When you begin using Veri, follow the instructions in the Veri app to apply the sensor to the back of your upper arm. To activate a new sensor, you must initialize by scanning the sensor with the Libre app. This will begin the 1-hour calibration process. After calibration is completed, scan the sensor again and your glucose data will be transferred to the app.

Here is an article with instructions on how to sync Veri with the Libre apps.
If you are wearing a Libre 1 or Libre 2 sensor you must use your phone to manually scan the sensor with the Abbott LibreLink or Libre 2 app for the full 14 days. If you are wearing a Libre3 sensor, scanning is not necessary as the data is automatically transferred from the CGM to the phone.
*The Veri app currently only supports the Abbott Freestyle Libre sensors. We use the Abbott FreeStyle Libre 2 in the UK & EU and the Abbott Freestyle Libre 3 in the US. Veri and Abbott FreeStyle Libre are not dependent upon one another to function, but you will need the sensor and access to the Libre app to collect blood sugar data.
