Not compatible with the new 255?
I upgraded from a forerunner 245 to a 255 and the dexcom data field is no longer available.
I can't believe this wasn't ready as the 255 is available in stores now

The latest update, (POS) something, something is queued in Connect IQ, but won't install on Garmin device (530 Edge). When the Dexcom data field is working it is always 5-10-15 (it's random as to which internal) behind actual data. I can start a ride, and the datafield magically croaks 5miles into an effort. Other times it miraculously runs fo the duration of a ride. No rhyme or reason. Somehow I have spent the last 4 years fishing a G6 out of my pocket at speed and not crashed. The G6 hardware itself is a real masterpiece (of shizzit): three buttons need to be depressed in succession with a sweaty hand in order to tell me the rate of BG declination, but no landscape view - for that I would have to fish my phone out of my pocket at 30khp. It's a shame that developers and FDA/powers that be, etc. make it so damn difficulty for athletes who do their damndest despite chronic conditions. It would be bad enough if Diabetes was my only health concern... Stupid applet, stupid updating system, stupid hardware, yet we persevere. Here's to resilience and strength in the face of electronic idiocy.

It does NOT connect! Ever!
23. Mai 2022 | Version 1.0.5
It rarely connects which is the whole reason I bought a Garmin 1030. I’m returning the Garmin and will go back to using the Dexcom receiver. I’m very disappointed.
22. Mai 2022 | Version 1.0.5
three hours spent trying to get his to work! bought a Venusq with the sole purpose of showing my glucose on my wrist at all times...that's apparantly not possible, the watch will now go back to the store. oh well
16. Mai 2022 | Version 1.0.5
Dexcom Widget doesn’t work on a Garmin venu. Wasted money buying this watch to connect to Dexcom. Hot garbage.
10. Mai 2022 | Version 1.0.5
Greatly disappointed! Was excited that Garmin finally had worked with Dexcom to display on a watch, and I could be done with Apple. Bought a Garmin watch, and then discovered the Dexcom widget and Decom data field require internet. Even with internet it can't maintain connection. If I don't sign in every 10 minutes I can't see any CGM readings on my watch. Are there plans to improve the widget and data fields or even create a watch face that can communicate via bluetooth directly with the Dexcom App on my phone, instead of the Dexcom share cloud via internet?
27. April 2022 | Version 1.0.5
Not reliable. Data needs to update quicker and more consistently
15. April 2022 | Version 1.0.5
Would be great.. if it worked! I should’ve bought an Apple. get it together Garmin!!
17. März 2022 | Version 1.0.5
The software is poorly written with a number of errors. Some of the time the sign in appears and some times it doesn’t. Have to try it numerous times until it work. Got the watch yesterday and uploaded the Dexcom app and after one hour got the Dexcom to work on my 945 LE watch. Today I got what the watch called a Bluetooth error and could not read my blood sugar levels for part of the day. Reinstalled the program on my watch and it is working again
20. Februar 2022 | Version 1.0.4
The performance of this app has degraded without a version change. Why am I being prompted to sign in multiple times on both the widget and the data field? My phone is always with me and I always have cell service, why is this app performing badly now. It updated pretty decently for a while.
Please pull the data directly from the dexcom app. Why is an internet connection absolutely necessary for this? I understand this is pulling from the cloud, but it should not have been designed that way.
I’m at a point now that I’m going to be wearing both my garmin and my Apple Watch during athletic events because the Apple Watch dexcom app display is reliable.

GARMIN...WAKE UP!!! WILL SOMEONE AT GARMIN PLEASE READ THIS!!!
Please design an App &/or Watchface that do the following.
1. Ditch the need for internet and the share server. Direct to Dexcom App. THIS NEEDS TO WORK WITHOUT INTERNET.
2. Large font size so we can read in the middle of the night without glasses.
3. Alert of Low & High threshholds that are set by the user.
4. Vibrate longer than just a quick buzz that we can't feel while sleeping. Your vibration on all Venu and Fenix products is not that great.
I have bought and now returned the Venu Sq Music, Venu 2, Venu 2 Plus and Fenix 6 due to the lack of all of the above.
Please help us here. If you want to change the lives of people with Diabetes who exercise and struggle with blood sugar issues please at least have
some Engineering conversations about some of this. These are potential live saving opportunities here.
For now I will stick with my old Vivoactive HR and the Apps from other people that allow me to at least communicate with Xdrip+.
When I'm in the Mountains with the Vivoactive HR and other Apps it is Awesome! No Internet Required!
6. Januar 2022 | Version 1.0.4
Despite multiple attempts I have not been able to get consistent readings during workouts. Most of the time I don’t get any reading at all. The third party alternatives work much better. It’s disappointing to see Dexcom and Garmin officially working together only to create apps and data fields with almost no functionality.
2. Januar 2022 | Version 1.0.4
Initially sinks and provides reading then goes blank. On a 30 mile test ride I only saw my glucose level 3 times.
20. Dezember 2021 | Version 1.0.4
Why just available for the US Dexcom Server and not the European?
1. Dezember 2021 | Version 1.0.2
Works ok on my watch, but would really love to be able to use it on my Edge 130 Plus. No idea why that wouldn't be an option... Frustrating.
1. Dezember 2021 | Version 1.0.2
Just give us a watch face!!! Also, if Garmin could make this "Datafield" (Not App) read it's values from the Dexcom app and not the Dexcom share server we would not have lost our readings for almost 2 hours on Nov 30th in the afternoon. And we could actually take our adventure/outdoors watch into the mountains where there is no cellular service and it would still get readings...what a genius idea!!!

Bad. After installed does not work. Then unistall was imposible. Only memory space occuped.
25. November 2021 | Version 1.0.2
I have to revise my review. This data field only appears to work immediately after installation. If my Garmin 530 shuts off, the app won't work the next time I try to use it. This is a very badly designed app. Nightscout2 worked without issue. I had hoped that the Dexcom app would provide more frequent updates, but it doesn't work at all. Hopped on the trainer today only to find no data in the field, only a symbol that seemed to indicate no Bluetooth, which was of course wrong. I'd made no changes to my phone's Dexcom app.
It's disappointing that Garmin allows this app to stay in the IQ Connect store. It's disappointing that Dexcom actually released this.
17. November 2021 | Version 1.0.2
Okay I just got this watch. Everything was fine. Then I changed it up . And now I can't get the decom to work . It notifies me of sensory issues but not glucose levels.
15. November 2021 | Version 1.0.2
I just want the cgm value on the face
13. November 2021 | Version 1.0.2
Can the data field be added to watch face?
27. Oktober 2021 | Version 1.0.1
Very happy ! I just got my Garmin Ve.u SQ . Install the app and Go ! I love how I can just turn my wrist around and there my reading !
25. Oktober 2021 | Version 1.0.1
Does NOT stay connected to my Garmin 830. Needs work? Update?
22. Oktober 2021 | Version 1.0.1
Doesn’t stay connected and I cannot get the readings while I am doing an activity
So hope this app gets the help it needs
