I’ve never used Sugarmate.
I never have to restart the app or watch/phone.
Not often but once in a while the Watch Face complication for Dexcom will show “–” which means its been too long since it got a reading from the phone so its not showing a number.
If you tap the “–” the watch dexcom app opens and updates.
Apple watch complications have limits on how often they can refresh their data. It’s not well documented but has to do with the battery life and other factors. This isn’t an issue for me.
All dexcom alerts the phone receives will go to the watch assuming its in range (20-50) feet.
The Dexcom watch app does the following.
- On watch face shows current numb
- Receive all high/low alerts from Phone
- App shows history “dots” on graph for last (1hr, 3hr, 6hr).
You only see the dots, you can’t get number values but its plenty good to see a trend.
I really like having the readings/alerts on the watch. As long as I can afford it I’ll be keeping the phone/watch combo.
Before Covid the watch was very helpful in meetings to check my sugar. It was much faster and I thought less rude then pulling out my phone to look.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
