What’s New

PLEASE NOTE</p><p></p><p>If you update the watchface and it isn't working out of the box, please update your settings via Garmin Connect Mobile App.</p><p></p><p>The watchfaces uses a background process which isn't availlable on older devices and which can be triggered at least every five minutes.

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?

Please read the informations first: https://github.com/swissalpine/GARMIN-xDrip-Spike-Nightscout-Watchface/ 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!

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.

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!

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

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. https://developer.garmin.com/connect-iq/api-docs/Toybox/Communications.html 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.

Any idea why suddenly watchface shows "Error: -300, Settings?" error message? It doesnt do it all the time but pretty frequently. I updated to latest version of watch face a week ago or so and it seems it started after that. Any idea? (nothing has changed in my settings, running xdrip android, so its not nightscout or whatever) Runnnig Fenix 5.

My fenix 6 doesn't update the values. Iy shoes the first after installation, but not anymore after Thais. Os there any problem with the Garmin Connect version?

Developer Reply

Unfortunately, the firmware of the Fenix 6 series has a bug that prevents updating the blood glucose data. This is not a problem with this watchface, there is nothing I can do about it: https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/i/bug-reports/fenix-6-with-background-app-watchface-doesn-t-update Please keep in mind that I developed this watchface in my spare time and provide it without any financial interest. A bad review due to a problem that is not my code's responsibility is not motivating to continue on this path. A message about the problem, on the other hand, would have been very welcome.

Perfekt. Danke für die Umsetzung. Toll wenn ich Nachts beim Low oder High den Alarm einfach an der Uhr abschalten kann. Meine Frau dankt dir - sie kann dann weiter schlafen. Wäre es noch möglich, dass das Watchface auch immer die aktuellsten Werte bekommt wie das Widget? Das wäre perfekt. Danke dir Andreas, dass du das Leben mit Diabetes so viel einfacher machst. Bis bald beim IDAA - Carsten

Es ist eine große Herausforderung, bis man zum ersten mal auf die Uhr schaut und auf dem Watchface den Wert sieht. Ich bin über den Link gegangen "Mit Entwickler Kontakt aufnehmen". Das hat sich absolut gelohnt. Kompetent und verständlich. Auch wenn die Anleitungen für NICHT-NURD an machen Stellen nicht verständlich sind, so denke ich mir, dass man an der Stelle auch Unterstützung erhalten wird. Die Technik begeistert auf jeden Fall.

Hi. Seems like now I have a square layout on Fenix5. Is it a bug?

Developer Reply
May 3, 2021, andreas-may

I don't understand your problem: This watchface is designed for round watches. There is no square design ...??? Feel free to contact me if you like.

I've tried almost all of the CGM watchfaces and definitely prefer this one. The graph is really nice so I can see long term trends, not just the current direction. I would love a setting that would allow me to make the graph take up the whole bottom of the screen (at the expense of my HR, stairs, and steps) like it used to, but even without that this is my preferred watchface. Huge thanks to the developer who's taken time to make this and provide it to the public for free!

How do I get the steps/ heart rate/stairs off the screen! I had the first watchface on here and it changed to the second when I added Spotify to my FR645 Music. Also my data from xdrip app is 5 minutes behind on my watchface. I thought I fixed it by sending data to nightscout app, but it just went back. Please help! My wife's watchface is the same way! I want the bottom to have the BG line from Dexcom.

This watchface is probably one of the most important/useful pieces of software in my life! Glad to see you constantly working on it. Question: Why is there a little smiley at the very bottom? (FR945)

Developer Reply
March 3, 2021, andreas-may

Thank you for your wonderful feedback. The smiley is there because I was looking for a placeholder. I myself use AndroidAPS and then instead of steps, heart and stairs IOB, COB and the temporary basal rate are displayed there: Heart rate, etc. alternate in the bottom line. And since I wanted to write one layout that fits for both use cases, I had to put something in the free line. And why a wink smiley? Well, the again renewed layout responds to the critics the previous one had received. The smiley comments on this rollback. But most of all it is a little greeting to our community ;-) Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)Thank you for the feedback.
