Thank you for this great app! It allows me to constantly see my blood sugar value as additional data field on my watch using the normal activity apps by Garmin.

Great addition, means I can have the data on the normal activities screen on both my Fenix 5 and cycling 520. I use the xDrip data feed from my Dexcom G5. My likes for the future will be a trend arrow option as an alternate to DOWN/FLAT/UP (arrows as on your Watchface). Also agree on the refresh time but understand the Garmin limitation, although have noticed it can take 5 mins to get the first reading when turning on.

Exactly what I was looking for. It's earned a data field on page 1 of my 1030, and it's totally changed the way I cycle. Can adjust carb intake well before I start feeling low!

Thank you for the great app! That is exactly what I was looking for! Could you please make sync interval and label "Nightscout" as configurable parameters?

Hi, glad you like it, thanks for the review and feedback. I can make the label configurable and will add it to the todo list (no promises when I can get to it). The sync interval however is limited by the Garmin api, probably to save battery life, and the fastest is 5 minutes, which is what this uses.

Thanks for your efforts, it's really helpful to have it as a data field, suggestions from my side: bigger text will be hele, maybe just removing some letters like u for up, d for down etc. And if instead of reading the data from Nightscout to read fata from xdrip will much better for faster updates. Thanks again!

Hi, thanks for the feedback! The text will get bigger if you use the BG-only option under the app's settings "Display mode". I plan to add an option to allow reading directly from xdrip (and spike) as well - thanks for the suggestions!

Incredible! I was going to build this exact functionality myself. Started looking at samples of data field apps and was shocked to find it was already there. Going to share this will all my fellow JDRF cyclists, major kudos to you!
