Sensor on the thigh?

So far, I like Veri. However, I have been been struggling wearing the sensor on my arm since the beginning.
I think that is not very discrete, I donโ€™t like people staring at me or asking why I have a button on my arm. I have a serie of white dots on my arm because sun tans me pretty easy, and it doesnโ€™t look nice. Also, every time a grab my purse I drag my sensor and I need to fight my baby when on my arms to avoid him from pulling my sensor! Lol
I saw a person wearing the sensor on her upper thigh while in the pool and started looking around. I found this: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29381253/
It is very low n to take significant conclusions, but since in our case this is meant for fitness and not for diabetes management, we may be able to live with a little of inaccuracies, right?

What do you guys think about it?

I already know that Abbot/ Veri donโ€™t recommend this. I wonder if Veri will be up to validate a new place for wearing the sensor. Iโ€™ll be happy to wear two sensors (arm+thigh) and share the data :)
