    Just been switched over to use the new Libre2 sensors and want to check to see if my understanding about this is correct.

    If you start a sensor on your phone, you can scan and get alarms on your phone, but can not scan using the reader.
    If you start a sensor on the reader, you can scan and get alarms on your reader and you can scan using your phone, but do not get alarms on the phone.

    When I used the Libre1 sensors, I used the phone 99% of the time, but always liked having the reader as a backup option. With the Libre2 , it seems I either have to carry two devices or choose being having alarms or a backup device.

    Is this correct?
