You can install the “Simple CGM” watchface, which can request data from your Share account, use the link below on your smartphone to open the App page in the Pebble Store.
The watchface requires active use of the Share receiver with the Dexcom Share2 iOS application sending data to their cloud service.
This watchface is both Time and Original Pebble compatible
After installation, you must open the settings for the watchface from within the Pebble smartphone app.
SELECT “Share” as the mode. The other two options are not supported/functioning.
ENTER your Dexcom account information. The username is not typically an email address, and can be found by opening the Share2 iOS app and tapping “Account.”
NOTE: mmol/l has not been thoroughly tested, as Share is still US only.
Set your High & Low Thresholds
Set your Vibration type: “New & Alerts” will vibe for every new BG read (double vibe) and any new BG in the Alert ranges. “Alerts Only” will long vibe for each BG in the Alert ranges. There is no snooze option yet, so it will vibrate every 5 minutes if within the ranges.
The watchface will let you know if you have the account info wrong.
For Time: out range High will show Yellow (circle) color, Low will be Red, in range is Green.
For Original: out range High will show Black (circle) color as will Low, in range is a White circle (black text).
SOME NOTES ON COMM ERROR:
Comm Errors are specific to communication between the watch and the phone app. These occur when the watch face or the smartphone Pebble app isn’t functioning properly, or the Bluetooth messaging between them is failing.
If the internet connection is down or causing the issue, you should see “net error” in the circle (where the BG delta usually is) and the BG will be blanked out.
Now, in a perfect world, these errors never overlap, but I have absolutely seen a flakey internet connection or other apps on the smartphone (or the OS itself!) cause Bluetooth issues (Comm Error) or trigger bugs in the smartphone app or watchface. I do my best to test in various conditions, but it’s nearly impossible to cover all.
For comm errors: I open the pebble smartphone app, force quit and relaunch, cycle watchface. If it didn’t work: I turn Bluetooth off (on the phone), and back on again (airplane mode off and on does the trick too), force quit pebble app and relaunch. Cycle watchface. Still no luck? Power cycle both devices, relaunch pebble app after both are back and ready.
Net errors: try your web browser, does it browse to websites? Try a website you never go to to verify you’re not hitting a cached site. On wifi? Turn it off and try on cellular only.
