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. The watchface 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>

1) How can I set the time 17.45 and not 06.45? 2? Is it possible to increase the refresh rate with Xdrip? Thank you

You asked the same questions as a support e-mail, which I have already answered. It's not very nice to frame such requests as (bad) reviews - especially when the one who can't figure it out is the user: 1. the display of the time format is based on the settings you have made on your watch. The watch face takes these over. 2. why there can't be more frequent updates is explained in the information about this app under "What's new - Please note".

For me it works only with nightscout server mode. I was trying to connect my Garmin Venu Sq with Diabox app with Garmin integration, but i'm still getting error 300.....same with xdrip.

Please read the informations as mentioned: I'm shure you will find the correct settings for xDrip+.

Can U add LibreLinkUp? Right now Libre 2 is CGM to, and with LibreLinkUp U can View date every minute...

This works great on my 245 pulling the data directly from Nightscout . Personally I do not really care for the information in the right bottom quadrant. If this was to be removed and the clock / date part increased in size then it would be perfect (for me). But still a great app. Thanks for making this available for type 1 parents.

Awesome, without xdrip and nightscout, it works through diabox. Fantastic update.

Have been happily using it for months. Works as advertised with minimal battery impact!

August 8, 2023 | Version 4.10

The best watchface to keep my diabetes under control. Perfect, I'm very happy, thanks a lot. I just moved to libre3. It's a bit tricky to get the BG on my fenix, but it works very good using JUGGLUCO + xDRIP. Would be nice to get also the values per minute as provided from the libre3 to the smartwatch. Nevertheless, the current version is a great help for me!

Thanks for the great feedback. Unfortunately, Garmin watchfaces and data fields are limited in terms of query interval: At most one query every 5 minutes. The good thing: This saves energy!

I have diabox working properly on my phone and recive my son 10 years old glucose at my phone but I can not get any information of that glucose to my Garmin Fenix 5. It sems that the Garmin not recived any information from DIABOX. I have try to configure both many times but have not get any positive result. Can someone help me please???

The Watchface shows what the corresponding app delivers. So if Diabox doesn't provide usable data, it's not "my" problem, it's Diabox's. Also, it is nicer to be contacted as a developer than to read a bad review. So my willingness is close to zero.

that you should select in the section: Nightscout Access-Token with readable role (if previously selected)

Many thanks for the rapid update to support the Epix Pro series. Great work!

Thanks..this is my favourite watchface...all I need to know is there :)

Very nice looking and clean interface. I like how all the components are put together. Works very well with my Fenix 6x pro. Thanks again Andreas for a great job ;)

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.

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).
