MiniMed Mobile App

The MiniMed Mobile app gives people with diabetes the ability to view insulin pump and CGM (continuous glucose monitoring) data from their smartphone or Apple® Watch. Users can track glucose levels and receive notifications when their levels are out of range. Also, the Sync to CareLink™ feature allows users to securely share app data with care partners.
The app is compatible with Medtronic's MiniMed™ 700-series insulin pumps.

  • anyone with diabetes who uses a 700 Series Medtronic pump: 770G or 780G
