xDrip+/Spike Watchface


xDrip+ Watchface gets your bloodglucose readings directly from xDrip+ app (Android only) running on your phone via a background process. There is no internet connection required and the smartwatch functionality of Garmin Watch functions! The app displays time of the day, your last blood glucose reading including the trend of the last readings, your daily steps, a step related progress bar and your actual heartrate (if enabled in the settings of your device).</p>


PLEASE NOTE</p><p>The Garmin Connect Mobile apps with version number 4.20 and 4.21 are breaking the communication with xDrip+. 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>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>

Hi, why lost connection consistenly in my 735xt? Moble Connect 4.30, xdrip web service ON and open web service disable...thanks!

Unfortunatly the current version isn't compatible with the fr735xt. Please write me an e-mail and I send you an older version of the watchface which should work: a.may.garmin AT mailbox DOT org

25 de mayo de 2020 | Versión 2.23

Absolutely brilliant - neat, fancy, modern layout. Working well with Nightscout sync on a vivoactive 4S.

22 de mayo de 2020 | Versión 2.23

How is the correct form to write nightscout url? Always says “wait max 5”

Respuesta del desarrollador
22 de mayo de 2020, andreas-may

Just "" - without "https://" or something like "api/v1/". I hope this fixes your problems und you don't own a fr735xt. These watches have problems with background processes used by this watchface. Thanks for your voting!

Very nice watchface, perfect for my F5 with all what I nedd

Great watchface, shows all relevant data in an elegant way and nevertheless the blood glucose data is not for everybody so obviously. Really cool. Thank you so much for that awesome development!

11 de marzo de 2020 | Versión 2.21

Works exactly as intended! Great for CGM on the wrist

Genial watch face. Funciona perfectamente en mi Forerunner 735XT. El consumo de batería es muy bajo. Me encanta. Muchas gracias.

Hi. Keep having trouble with connecting to nightscout. Keep returning connection error. Any suggestions to deal whit that?

3 de enero de 2020 | Versión 2.20

On iphone with nightscout enabled as source it shows value in mgdl even though NS is set to mmol. All other apps spike, xdripswift, sugarmate fetch from same source and display value correctly.

Respuesta del desarrollador
3 de enero de 2020, andreas-may

Yes, you are right. I need to add a setting for Nightscout users to choose the display format. In my querys Nightscout always sends the values in mg/dl and unlike xDrip+ and Spike, for which the app is actually programmed, I get no information about the user's settings when I query the values. Please be patient, I will add this function with the next update.

Very good watch face, works perfect!! Also great support by the developer! Works perfectly on the Garmin fenix6. Well Done!

Another update from Garmin on my vivoactive 3 fixed the background processes. Happy to us this watchface once again!

Merci beaucoup pour votre effort et pour cette application. Vous avez aidé les diabétiques par la simplicité de configuration, d'installation et de suivi en temps réel des glycémies. Encore une fois Merci.

Always been a happy user of this watchface, but since the update from Garmin on my watch (vivoactive 3) it doesn't update anymore. The xdrip widget still works though.

If Garmin releases firmware updates that contain errors: making background processes impossible here, then I'm very sorry for the users - I just can't do anything, except answer a lot of emails. The only possibility is a firmware downgrade to 6.90. The following link contains the necessary file: This is only useful if no autoupdate takes place and this can be deactivated. Bad reviews don't motivate me to continue offering these apps.

Hola. Tengo un Forerunner 730 XT. He cargado esta última actualización y ha dejado de recibir los datos de glucosa. Si que los recibo con tu widget pero no en la pantalla del reloj. Espero puedas arreglarlo. Muchas gracias ya que haces un trabajo estupendo que me permite tener vigilada a mi hija de 12 años con mi reloj gracias a ti.Te doy mil gracias por eso.

Muchas gracias por sus amables palabras. Para solucionar el problema, compruebe la configuración: Garmin Connect Mobile - Dispositivos - FR 735xt - Pantalla - xDrip+/Spike Watch - Configuración Los ajustes en xDrip+/Spike también se pueden cambiar. También el mensaje de error de la esfera del reloj sería útil. Porque no puedo entender el error, en mi fenix 5s plus todo funciona como debería. Por favor escríbeme a [email protected] si el problema persiste. Traducción realizada con el traductor

Excellent watch face, but the last digit of date and time are covered with the vertical line on my Fenix Chronos (218x218 pixel resolution). Any way to correct it?

Respuesta del desarrollador
30 de septiembre de 2019, andreas-may

Thanks for your nice feedback and your hint. I fixed the layout for your device. Please update the watchface and give it a try.

Ein riesen Dankeschön! Funktioniert einwandfrei auf meiner Vivoactive 3 Music. Danke für Dein Mitwirken und die Bereitstellung dieses Watchfaces, so kann auch ich, technisch ahnungslos, das nutzen :)

Had issues getting my phone to accept the 4.19.1 version of Garmin Connect as all attempts to download 3rd party apps did not work. Finally got it with the help of a "techy" coworker. This gives me everything I need on my wrist. Thank God! I spent weeks researching the best watch to meet all my exercise and diabetic needs. I have questions about some error codes I get occasionally. How do I reach you? Here?

Sorry, I didn't read your question at the end of your review. The error codes describes communication problems and can be found here: If you like to reach me please write an message over the right sided link: Contact Developer

Been using this without any issue for months and it's great, however I now have a 300 error where the graph should be and there is nothing I can do to fix. The webserver is on and I have rebooted and reinstalled everything. Is this a bug or more likely a hardware issue?

Respuesta del desarrollador
29 de junio de 2019, andreas-may

The last Garmin Connect Mobile App update breaks the communication with xDrip+. Please install an earlier version like 14.9.1 which you can found here: If you have problems installing a version from there please delete the actual version first. Regards and thanks for your review Andreas

Excellent watch face for use with xDrip+. Been using on my Fenix 5 since I started using CGM. Hope you have time to make it available for the FR945 soon. Thanks for the hard work!

Thanks for the feedback ... and it's available for the fr945!

The watchface is great and works very well. I have been using it for several months now.

How come there is an error code:-300 instead of graph chart after been installed?

Respuesta del desarrollador
25 de abril de 2019, andreas-may

Have you proofed the settings of xDrip+ as I wrote to you some hours ago? Please enable Web Service, be shure that Open Web Service is disabled. Is your bluetooth connection reliable? The error code has nothing to do with an possible issue of the watchface. The watchface does what it should when saying that something else is wrong. BTW it's an official Garmin error code: NETWORK_REQUEST_TIMED_OUT = -300

Excellent job, Andreas May! And many many many thanks for that. I have been using this Watchface for exactly 8 days now on my Vivoactive 3 and Battery is still at 17%. This is exactly what I'd been looking for!

Thanks, Markus. Good to know that there are no problems with vivoactive 3!
