Here is a picture. Loving it so far. One cool feature that I like is that when you raise your wrist you can set the Apple Watch to default to this Dexcom app. So you you don’t have to go find the app to see your BG’s. More updates to follow…
The setup was extremely easy. Turn On Share on the Dexcom receiver, and start the Share2 app on the iPhone. The app tells you how to pair them up in a few seconds. I was even able to pair them up with the receiver was in the 2-hour startup mode. The Share2 app shows up on the watch and all you need to do is start it up. Now - its my default app and it shows the last reading and a 3-hour graph. No way of changing that view from what I can tell.
If you are the person wearing the sensor then you have the option of using both the Share2 app or the Follow app on your iPhone and Watch. I actually prefer the Share2 app and that is what I’m showing below.
I’ve been using the Apple Watch for a few days now and I really love it. It works well and is very seamless. When I go “out of range” the system will recover on its own and pick up where it left off. Even the graph on the watch gets filled in with past values if the phone has not been near by. As long as you keep the Dex receiver close by in a bag or your pocket, or on the kitchen counter at home it will record all of your readings and relay it back to the iphone/watch once they are all in range again. Me checking the watch every 10 min has not dimished the battery life of the watch at all. It lasts well through the day with plenty of juice left over. The iPhone battery usage has been affected a little. I used to get home after work with about 70%battery on the iphone. Now its more like 55% Definitely acceptable for me.
If you are fortunate to have the insurance or free cash I would say go ahead and get this system. Its awesome.
