xDrip+ Widget


xDrip+ Widget is a variant of CGM Widget. To benefit from this widget, you don't need a Nightscout installation. The widget gets your bloodglucose readings directly from xDrip+ app (latest nightly build is necessary!) running on your phone. No internet connection is required! The widget shows the last stored bloodclugose reading including the trend of the last two hours. If you are using the closed loop App AAPS the widget shows also your AAPS status (basalrate, insulin on board).</p>

Please install an earlier version like 4.19.1 (which you can found here: or update to at least version 4.22.</p><p></p><p>Changelog</p><p>V1.72 - Fix for a rare bug</p><p>V1.70 - Support for new devices (f. e. Fenix 6, vivoactive 4)</p>

Werkt de widget ook met IOS?

No, because you need the Android App xDrip+. I've build the same widget for SPIKE ( which runs on IOS:;jsessionid=1276871D16D70991DDB067D5A714DF09

Bin überglücklich mit dem Widget, erleichtert das Leben mit Diabetes und Sport ungemein.

Perfekt, vielen Dank an den Entwickler, funktioniert mit der Fenix 6 hervorragend, ein kleines Widget dass eine so große Hilfe darstellt im Alltag und beim Sport!!

August 24, 2019 | Version 1.66

Latest Connect version corrected my issues. Fantastic widget. Especially helpful at night, quick push of the button instead of futzing with the phone to check on our daughter or snooze BG alarms.

The problem is fixed in 4.22: The communication with xDrip+ is possible again! Thanks to Garmin who implemented a fix in Garmin Connect Mobile.

This is so great! Thank you so much for the great App. I use it on mine Fenix 5X plus, with Libra sensor and the mio mio transmitter. If I can ask- is it possible to create a loop between my Garmin and the transmitter, so I can get a read even if I'm not near my phone? Thanks for that.

Super bien, simple et facile, merci !

For starters, great widget and thanks for the effort to create it!! I'm not sure if this has been asked for already, but would it be difficult to create a connect IQ data field so the blood sugar reading is alongside other fields such as speed, cadence, etc. I really can't trust myself switching from the activity to the widget every so often on a long bike ride and not having or causing an accident!! Thanks, Steve.

Great widget, I made a simple one to show the text from NS this is heaps better! Feature request I use mmol/l, a decimal point in the +/- value would be very useful to see the rate of change. I only see the first two subtext values, how do I enable the over values (not sure what they are % and a number)?

Thanks for your kind feedback. I think I fixed your problem showing no decimal place. Please update xDrip+ Widget via Garmin Express or delete and reinstall the app via Garmin Connect Mobile.

This is great, been waiting a long time for this. Will be even better when Garmin/IQ have the ability to easily toggle to the app (on my 520) when I have a cycle in progress. Can you add the current time to the display? that way it will emulate the Wear OS xdrip+ watch face onto a Fenix and mean I could use a Fenix in the same way I wear my android Sony SW3 (which are getting harder to come by now). Great job. Time to let the Sporty T1 community know as I only found out it was there by luck today.

Hi, really great job on this widget (and the watch) for Garmin Connect. I use a Forerunner 630 by Garmin and it works great. The issue I have is that I cannot view the blood sugar readings during an Activity (like Run, Bike, etc..)...I have not found a way to add the xdrip data as a view during the activity? Also I would like to donate to your effort as I really appreciate what you have done, it has saved me the cost and time of buying a different watch and it helps my life out immensely. Please send me a paypal or donation link and I will gladly donate to you. thanks!

Hi Brent, thanks for your kindly feedback. Please try my new data field: You can integrate it in every Garmin Sports App.

January 27, 2018 | Version 1.01

This is so unbelivable awesome! It works good. I Cycle a lot and with this widget it is so much easier to check. Thank you a lot for this! As a suggestion I would like to have a simple carb imput. This would be nice to be able to keep record of the carbs i eat while training, rides and competition. Would it be possible to have this one as a Data Field?

Finally I finished a data field: Feel free to give it a try.
