G5 finally heading in the right direction
The complication feature it's something I've been waiting for since the G5 was announced and I got my first Apple watch. The fact that I can look at my watch without pressing any buttons to see my blood sugar just as easily as checking the time is a huge step towards feeling a bit more"normal."
That being said, the forced audible alarm for urgent lows is still a very real annoyance. Sometimes my blood sugar drops and levels off at a low point and while waiting for it to come back to normal levels, I'll have to deal with multiple audible alarms and have to go to my phone to disable each time(even for the same occurrence). This still needs to be addressed.
Another diabetic supply company said it best..."having diabetes isn't a choice, how we manage it should be." Give us the choice as to which alarms we want.
How has Dexcom still not fixed their mistake by making alarms silence-able again? Not having the option to silence the app is majorly inconvenient and bordering on unacceptable when goes off in a meeting, in class, in church, or it causes me to lose sleep nearly every night (I don't need to be woken up because my glucose is 2 mg/dl upside my "high" threshold, and before a previous update, I wasn't) when a vibrate alerting JUST ME would have been perfectly sufficient. How much more negative feedback do you need? Customers spend thousands of dollars on this potentially life saving product, just to have the software updated and changed to something that is all but unanimously despised by customers. They even had the audacity to say that they have listened to feedback in the update notes while in no way addressing the issue that is ruining their product. If this were any other market, Dexcom would be underground. Unbelievable.
So so close
Update - love the new complication update. Love to see my blood sugar on my watch without a "click".
I am leaving at 4 stars because when you dismiss a notification and the alerts still goes off, is intrusive.
Also, if I didn't test, and even when I go into the app, it still alerts too often killing the battery on my phone.
Love the updates. Keep them coming. 😀
This is a fantastic app and just needs a few tweaks to make it perfect.
Love the Apple Watch update. I would love to be able to see the actual number as one of the modules on the actual clock (I think this is called complication). Right now we can see just the Dexcom symbol, which defeats the purpose of having it at all. You just save one step by not having to use the Digital Crown.
Push notifications on the lock screen are fantastic, but we need to a way to acknowledge high/low blood glucose there. Otherwise you have to go into the app to acknowledge which gets very annoying (especially days you are sick and you glucose is always high).
Still love using a phone as my receiver.
