I'd like to know my son's BG without having to open up my phone when I get an alert on my watch. How hard is that, really?
Considering how important this app is the fact that near enough all day there has been no data i am starting to loose confidence in this so far we’ve had the dexcom for 5 days and it’s not a great start at all my daughter has the main app and that is say signal loss quite a lot and she has her phone with her at all times I think there needs to have some kind of update on this app and fast
..would be good to get the actual reading on watch when the alert occurs...otherwise a decent app.
Unfortunately the notifications on my iPhone 7 Plus are very hit and miss and cannot be relied upon to elert you. Phone is running IOS 10.3.3 which does state is not guaranteed to work with the app as yet. Does seem more reliable on husbands iPhone 6 Plus - running the same version of IOS. Great when it works.
24 hours in and this seems like a great app - exactly what we want from a Bluetooth enabled CGM.
No issues so far with communicating with the sensor - it's probably a little shorter distance than a standard Bluetooth device but it does reconnect after a few minutes of being back in close proximity. It would be nice to see when the last data was obtained during periods of loss of signal.
Haven't quite managed to master the alerts yet, getting recurring ones after acknowledgement but it seems like a great feature.
Apple Watch support would also be a really useful addition - or at least some detail in the notifications on the watch interface.
New to G5 system and have had quite a few issues with lost transmitter and no data. Generally closing the app and restarting and waiting sorts it but I have to do the same to the receiver iPhone. Not good enough for a medical device for a child. Would also be better if I could see carbs entered and insulin given the same as the receiver. Would like to see graphs for a week too.
About as much use as a chocolate teapot !
