watchSugar is an Apple Watch app that lets you view your Dexcom Share blood sugar data on the face of your watch via a complication.
There are two simple steps to get up and running: 1) log into your Dexcom Share account in watchSugar's phone app and 2) pick the watchSugar complication on your Apple Watch's watch face.
Please note: watchSugar is able to update every 17 minutes on average. Using the Modular watch face and assigning watchSugar to the large central complication area allows you to also view the timestamp of watchSugar's latest reading.
Note: Your privacy is of the utmost concern. watchSugar stores your credentials securely in the iOS keychain and never sends any outside of the app, aside from to Dexcom.
This update is signed with Apple’s latest signing certificate. No new features are included.
Ratings and Reviews
I wish the updates were more expedient
It is nice to have this complication, but with having to touch the complication to have it updat for the time that I am looking at it, it is a pain. I may as well just use my Dexcom Data in Glances. I would like to take place a bit more "auto magically". I had a hypoglycemia episode one time, and treated it. I tested my blood sugar with the meter and it was at 62 mg/dL. However, when I looked at my watch right after it was still reading from three hours ago at 210 mg/dL (!!) I hope that the developers can fix this little bug, because I would like to see things currently; not from three hours ago or so.
Great idea and a nice feature for our Apple Watch. If it's updated just a bit more frequently.
This brings full functionality to Dexcom Share
This wonderful app puts BG information a gesture away, When I purchased the Apple Watch, specifically for use with the Dexcom Share program, I was expecting to be able to glance at the watch and see my BG. I almost returned the watch when I found that there were in fact three steps, and often a wait after that, involved in retrieving BG info. It was quicker to look at my pump, or the receiver! The constant presence of BG information on my watch face is really THE WHOLE POINT of the Apple Watch/Dexcom system. AWESOME MUST-HAVE app!
Thankful, but definitely needs work.
Let's start with the good. Thank you to developers to picking up the ball that Dexcom so clearly dropped. I love the possibility of seeing my Dex info on my watch face.
Now to the not so good. While I understand that there is a lag, mine lags hours. I'm not talking during the 1 am- 6 am. I'm talking all day, everyday. 2+ hours behind. Obviously information that is that old is not helpful at all.
Thank you for designing this app. I look forward to any future updates that help with this issue.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
