xDrip+/Spike/Nightscout Datafield


This datafield gets your CGM bloodglucose readings directly from xDrip+ app (Android only) and - if you have closed the loop with AndroidAPS - a loopstatus line. If you change the settings you can use this datafield also with Spike app (iOS only) or with a web request from your Nightscout installation.</p><p>This datafield also works with Diabox if "Share data with smartwatches" is enabled (Diabox: Settings - Integrations) and "xDrip+" is selected in the watchface settings (Garmin Connect Mobile).</p>

What’s New

PLEASE NOTE</p><p>---</p><p>Some edge devices enable WiFi when they are powered on and not recording an activity. In this case no Bluetooth connection to the smartphone will be established. If you don't receive any values on your edge device, check if there is a Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. Disable WiFi.</p><p>---</p><p>The datafield uses a background process which can run at most every five minutes. The datafield tries to get as close as possible to the time of the last measurement. So it may happen that you have to wait up to 10 minutes from one reading to the next one. If this is the case you will see a watch icon on the datafield.</p>

Love it, thank you! Even shows what happens to my sugars while exercising and after in the Garmin charts.

Nie wieder den BG-Level aus den Augen verlieren!!! Ich bin rundum zufrieden, tolle Arbeit :-)

Thanks for the data field, very useful

It is great. Just be aware that it can be 10mins behind (plus interstitial fluid 15mins) so potentially 25 mins max. delay. The 10min potential delay is a shame, but I guess as good as is possible. But taking everything into account it is very useful. Especially, compared to where we were a few years back! Many thanks to the developers!

Had already installed the XDrip+ Widget on my Edge 820 and Forerunner 235. This app allows me to insert a cgm datafield into my Edge 820 screen to track my glucose trend through an activiy, in real time, with no swiping to find the widget on another data screen. Great to see it alongside your power, speed, cadence, etc. Excellent. I now need to upgrade my watch as it's too old tech. to run a data field, only a widget.

Super Feld. Es macht mit den Sport so viel einfacher. Ein Blick zeigt neben Pace auch den Blutzucker. Super. Sogar der Verlauf wird wie die anderen Werte mir aufgezeichnet. Klasse gemacht Andreas. Danke dir. Hoffe wir sehen unsal wieder beim IDAA. LG

March 25, 2021 | Version 2.22

Thank you so much Andreas-May for making this as well as the Watchface app. By far it's the most important feature of my entire Garmin watch. Really makes my intense, long workouts doable when I can quickly make decisions on blood sugar with a quick glance at the watch

Incredible! It works perfectly on my Edge 530 with xDrip and Android 11...It is a dream, you change my rides! Hope you can continue to develop such solutions for long time! Thanks!!!

August 28, 2020 | Version 2.10

혈당을 실시간으로 확인하면서 라이딩하니 라이딩의 질이 세배는 올라간것 같습니다. 앱 개발자분 감사합니다!!

June 28, 2020 | Version 2.10

Unbelievable - a game changer! Works like a breeze on my Edge 530. For the first time ever, I have all necessary data on one single screen. Thank you so much.

Excellent solution. Now I have glucose and for example daily time still visible during the cycling workout, walking activity. Very good idea, I like it. Love this aplication. Many thanks to author for his effort to improve our live with diabetes.

Excellent data field, I'm running it on my new 935 and it works great. Thanks!

You're welcome and thank you for your nice review!

Great help for CGM on my Garmin vivoactive . But as Spike shut down , is it possible to develop datafield for xDrip for iOS please (for the moment beta in testflight App Store)

Developer Reply
November 22, 2019, andreas-may

Thank you for your nice review! xDrip+ for iOS has to implement a webservice like xDrip+ for Android has: If this is the case it's easy to support this app. I'm not using an iPhone. Please write me if this is possible or planed - or if you find a documentation of a similar web service: [email protected] Thanks!

November 10, 2019 | Version 2.01

Great job congratulations. Thanks for keening us running, cycling and ever more.

November 6, 2019 | Version 1.97

Hi, so excited to be able to view my BG on my Garmin Edge 1000 while cylcing! Had some problems connecting with Garmin when testing, but connection was fine during my bike ride :)

Some edge devices enable WiFi when they are powered on and not recording an activity. In this case no Bluetooth connection to the smartphone will be established. If you are testing the app at home and you don't receive any values on your edge device, check if there is a Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. Disable WiFi.

Awesome being able to see blood glucose and AAPS status on my garmin whilst cycling

Franz Moser
May 14, 2019 | Version 1.45

Sehr tolle App bzw. Datenfeld. Das Datenfeld kann in beliebigen Sport Apps zb. Bergsteigen, angezeigt werden. Auf einem Blick sehe ich neben Höhe, HF oder Uhrzeit usw auch den Blutzuckerwert. Unbezahlbar!

Chris Hart

Brilliant. I've only being using xDrip+ for a short while (with the Libre and MiaoMiao) but having this data visible when cycling is so good.

Martin Wilby
February 17, 2019 | Version 1.26

Absolutely brilliant app. Means I can refuel, change pump settings and monitor my blood glucose as I ride. Thank you so much, no more stopping and finger pricking.

This data field is perfect for me as T1D and user of AAPS. It shows me my current BG and all important information of AAPS I need during a ride with my MTB! Thanks a lot to the developer, I really love this :-)
