Whether training or competing, knowing how to fuel is critical to maintain athletic performance.
By continuously¹ reading your molecular glucose data in real time, the Abbott Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor, when used with a compatible partner app or product, helps athletes optimize the way they fuel for athletic performance, making the invisible, visible.
While wearables take surface level readings, the Abbott Libre Sense Biosensor goes further.
The small biosensor worn on the back of the upper arm uses a thin, flexible filament inserted just under the skin to accurately measure glucose levels inside the body from the interstitial fluid3 - a thin layer of fluid surrounding the cells of the tissues just below your skin.
With a compatible partner app or product, it helps you unlock first-of-its-kind insights into athletic fueling, so you can make the right choices in real time to help you achieve your goals.

Explore answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the Abbott Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor.
The Abbott Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor is designed for sport use only and offers streaming glucose data with a dynamic range of 55 – 200 mg/dL for performance athletes to monitor their glucose levels. It is specifically designed for sports use. The biosensor is not for medical use and is not intended for the diagnosis, treatment, or management of diabetes or any other disease.
Through non-exclusive partnerships, Abbott plans to make the biosensor compatible with sports companies’ mobile apps and products which will provide glucose levels, trends and metrics to provide insights to support optimal fueling strategy and performance for athletes.
The biosensor is designed to provide a glucose monitoring experience that will enable athletes to understand the efficacy of their nutrition choices during training and competition. It will therefore inform athletes about how to fuel appropriately, to fill their glycogen stores prior to a race and to know when to replenish during a race to maintain athletic performance.9,10
To obtain glucose readings, users simply start a biosensor with a quick scan of the smartphone over the biosensor. After a 1-hour warm up period, users will start to automatically receive streaming glucose data every minute on their compatible smartphone app.
We have partnered with Supersapiens to display and translate glucose readings from our biosensor into fueling strategies for athletes. Learn more at www.Supersapiens.com.
The biosensor pack contains the biosensor and an applicator to prepare the biosensor for use. The biosensor is applied to the back of the upper arm with the aid of the biosensor applicator.
