    Hi I had my freestyle 2 sensor on during the warm weather. Became really hot. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. To cover it up in warm weather. Thanks

    Hi @Kirstyuk

    Are you asking about a ‘cosmetic’ cover so the sensor can’t be seen, or something to prevent the sensor being affected by heat?

    Hi,

    I have to admit. I plant mine under arm if it's a concern regarding direct sunlight.
    There is some lovely weather in my location. Last year I was working out in the heat & had no issue.
    But I was using the L1 back then..

    In that case I’d recommend @Jaylee ’s solution above.
