Do you know what watch complications are?
Complications are the newest feature for the Apple Watch app. Dexcom G5 users with an Apple Watch can choose from 4 different watch faces and by just lifting their wrist they can quickly and easily see their glucose level and trend arrow.
Dexcom representatives told me....
"We have seen many social media posts indicating that our users have purchased the Apple Watch primarily because Dexcom CGM glucose data is available on the watch. We are excited that this release will allow our users with an Apple Watch even greater convenience for those who want this important information in an easy-to-use and discreet form."
"Close collaboration took place with Apple to get the watch platform to support our use case of 288 updates/day to make this feature possible for CGM. The Dexcom Watch Face was shown at last year’s World Wide Developers Conference in September, and its currently being promoted on Apple’s website in two locations, (1) on great new features of watchOS3, and (2) third-party ecosystems that make the Apple Watch great. Below are screenshots from both of Apple’s website locations."
"As part of Dexcom’s commitment of continuous improvement in the quality and user experience of our apps, the 1.6 release also includes several sustaining improvements and enhancements."
Dexcom G5 App v1.6 and Apple Watch running watchOS 3 or later required. US only.
