The app does exactly what it says it will, if you follow the instructions on how to configure it. Tested on Garmin 245M, Garmin Fenix 7, Garmin Edge 530. Thank you for your work. Much appreciated.

So happy that forerunner 55 supported!!! Thanks for update. Using with xdrip+

November 17, 2022 | Version 3.95

Nie mogę połączyć xdripa z telefonem, nie wiem co robię nie tak? Ok 2 tygodnie temu był wszystko ok, podczas zmiany nakładki libra zniknęło wszystko i taka informacja mi się wyświetla "reqest failed settings comp app". Proszę o pomoc.

Die App ist genau das, was ich für meine neue Fenix 7 gesucht habe. Leider ist die Aktualisierung der Butzuckerwerte merkwürdig. Es sind meistens 10 Minuten zwischen den Werten und dann gibt es wieder keine Aktualisierung über lange Zeit auch wenn auf dem Handy Werte ankommen, wie z.B. heute nach einem Sensorwechsel. Ich musste dann auf der Uhr selber das watchface mehrfach aktivieren.

Sorge dafür, dass die Garmin Connect Mobile App nicht im Hintergrund beendet wird oder andere Batterie-Optimierungen wirken: Ansonsten findest Du - auch zu den Aktualisierungsintervallen - Hinweise auf der genannten Webseite: Dort findest Du auch andere Trouble-Shooting-Hinweise. Die App kann nur das anzeigen, was sie geliefert bekommt.

Hola , hasta hace poco me funcionaba perfectamente pero últimamente me sale un error en la pantalla "300 setting" y deja de recibir los datos

October 21, 2022 | Version 3.91

Thank you, its great to have the BG on the watch.

October 16, 2022 | Version 3.91

Great, i just miss the IoB value, with that would be 100% perfect. In setup also the time syncing has only delayed setting (+ value) and olny one -10s On my watch sometimes I'll need more -20 or -30 to sync correctly

Writing bad reviews certainly helps (instead of dealing with the settings and the information page).

Hi developpers, I LOVE the watch face. I was i watch face creater before using Watchmaker and every faces i made was a big succes (i created them for xdrip users). I've been studying the Eclipse program to create new watch faces for Garmin but can't find a way to include blood sugar level from xdrip. Are your watch faces created with Eclipse?

Developer Reply

Yes. I use Eclipse to build the code. My apps uses the xDrips Web Service which is documentated here:

DT1 beschäftigt uns 24Std am Tag. Umso schöner ist es, dass diese App einfach nur läuft und läuft und läuft. Meine Fenix 5x alle 14 Tage einmal mit Strom versorgen und gut ist es. Bei meinen Aktivitäten am Berg ist diese Kombi mein verlässlicher Begleiter. Egal ob in der grellen Sonne, bei Kälte im Winter oder bei einer nassen Höhlentour. Ob beim Klettern oder Schitourengehen. Ein Blick auf die Uhr und ich weiß wie es um meinen BZ steht. Ich kann Andreas nicht genug danken für seine Bemühungen die es mir dadurch um vieles einfacher machen.

Most probably the best xdrip compatible and cgm watchface which makes me choose a garmin. The interface is really nice, simple and has all expected features. Suggestion for next release, allow to customise low, ir and high colors. Ability to report the TIR colors in the vertical central line as an option. Very nice job technicaly and graphicaly. I recommand deeply this watchface if your are T1D and you use xdrip.

Love this cgm it's my fav BS face. My only problem is the delay of update I usually get it every 5 minutes I'm not sure how to change it I tried doesn't seem to help it's always about 9 to 10 minutes until updated

Developer Reply
July 25, 2022, andreas-may

Thank you for your kind words. If the 5 minute update interval is not established, there is a problem with the time codes. It seems that the CGM transmitter is not running synchronously with the clock. One possibility is to play with the delay of the query (increase it). Sometimes this helps, but sometimes it does not. Here is more information about the settings:

Hab meine alte Rezension 'entsorgt', weil ein Update nicht möglich ist. Herzlichsten Dank an Andreas. Nicht nur die Live-Anzeige ist toll gelöst, sondern auch während einer Aktivität habe ich den BZ stets im Blick! Was will ich noch mehr? Bin wunschlos zufrieden!

Wonderful watchface, but it seems the glucose level will be updated every 10 minutes. I would like to get the new value after 5 minutes. Can it be configured everywhere?

Developer Reply
May 16, 2022, andreas-may

Please read the informations first: You can adjust the delay of the request if the time codes between CGM device and watch aren't synchronized.

The best watch face of it's kind. Working perfectly on Libre2 - Diabox - Garmin Vicoactive 4S. Many thanks to the developer for making such a positive addition to my diabetes management!

Fenix 6 (pro) now works, after updating to Version 20.51 Beta (Manual Update)

February 23, 2022 | Version 3.70

Thank you so much for your work on this. I have used it for 3 years and it has been indispensable in helping me manage my diabetes. I am on an EPIX now and app is working as expected but I do miss the AOD of the Fenix. Any chance for an option to keep the data screen as the dimmed "Always on display" screen? Thanks again for the continued effort.

Developer Reply
February 26, 2022, andreas-may

Thanks for the feedback! What do you want to see? I've build a second screen for amoled displays with reduced data (bloodglucose and time). You can activate it in the settings. Then the screen should be allways on. - But I can't test it because I don't own such a device ...

Thanks so much for your work! I just wanted to let other users know that this app work no problem locally (no internet) with Diabox aswell, as long as "Share data with smartwatches" is enabled under integrations in Diabox. Game changer for me. Thanks again for the fantastic apps!

Very useful, thanks

January 12, 2022 | Version 3.48

Thank you for developing this app. Its been really helpful. I tend to be a very active diabetic. I've been marathon training and its been super helpful to just glance at my watch and get an update. My only problem is it doesn't seem to update every 5 minutes like I would like it to. It usually updates around 10 minutes or more. So its always 5 to 10 minutes behind my most current readings. Im on a phenix 6x btw.

Love the app but for some reason it has stopped working as of yesterday. Bounces between error -300 and error -400. Went back through all settings and nothing has changed and watchface is up to date. Hopefully there'll be a fix for this soon, my favorite watchface by far

Developer Reply
January 1, 2022, andreas-may

Both errors have nothing to do with the app, there are communication problems that happen between xDrip+, Nightscout or Spike and the Garmin Connect Mobile app. -300 NETWORK_REQUEST_TIMED_OUT Request timed out before a response was received. -400 INVALID_HTTP_BODY_IN_NETWORK_RESPONSE Response body data is invalid for the request type. I would like to get one thing off my chest though: Writing bad reviews instead of seeking help via the contact form does not motivate me to continue providing the apps (for free!).

Well, it should! Instead of writing a bad review, it would be more helpful (also for you) to write and solve problems via the support email: Maybe the problem is not with the app, but with the user, who can't find the right settings, or with the smartphone, which terminates necessary background processes.
