I whined and moaned and generally been a real baby whenever I’m reminded that you Apple Fanboys have your Dexcom info on your iPhones and Apple Watches. Somehow I’d missed all the progress with the xdrip project.
Well, I’m on the G5, and xdrip supports the transmitter directly now. No need to cobble together a custom hardware bridge. So I installed xdrip+ yesterday, and… WOW!
I’m like a kid that just got that Tonka Truck under the tree for Christmas that I’d been drooling over for the entire year. I’ve ditched my Dexcom receiver. I have this boffo watchface on my Android Wear watch with my BG and a little graph. I can see my BG with a glance.
In short, I’m at parity with you Apple dudes now. I am SO HAPPY!!! Now if they can just figure out how to control the pod from Android (will take a piece of bridge hardware at this point).
And, xdrip+ is a massively more useful, feature-rich application for dealing with CGM data than what is included on the receiver (or the iPhone). Too short a time to evaluate fully, but so far the predictive algorithm telling me if I’m headed for a high or a low has been quite good over the last 24 hours.
Anyway, if you have a Dexcom G5 and an android phone, even better an Android Wear watch too, give xdrip (or better, xdrip+) a try.
