One of the biggest problems for diabetic users in Spain is having to monitor their blood sugar or glucose levels. Now, a diabetic user who has a Garmin watch is in luck, since thanks to a new application, the watches will be able to carry out this monitoring and thus not depend on hardware specific.
As Garmin itself advances today, users of their watches can download a new Dexcom application from the Connect IQ store, which basically allows a series of the company’s watches measure blood glucose levels directly from the smartwatch.
With this application, users will be able to view a history of up to 3 hours, check current levels in real time, and even the upward or downward trend. Great news for type 1 and type 2 diabetics who also engage in physical exercise and need to be aware of these data.
Compatible garmin watches
Of course, not all Garmin watches will be compatible with the Dexcom app and with the measurement of these values. This is the complete list of Garmin devices that receive the long-awaited downloadable application on Connect IQ:
- Fenix 6 Solar Series
- Fenix 6X Pro y Sapphire
- Fenix 6 Pro y Sapphire
- Fenix 6S Pro y Sapphire
- Vivoactive 4 Series
- MARQ series
- Series Venu SQ Music y Venu 2
- Forerunner 245 Music
- Forerunner 745
- Forerunner 945 and its LTE version
- Serie Quatix 6
- Tactix Delta Series
- Edge 530
- Edge 830
- Edge 1030 y Plus.
These are not the only ones. Later, this compatibility will reach the base models of the Fenix 6, 6S, Venu, Venu SQ, the Legacy series, the normal Forerunner 245 and the Garmin Enduro. Mind you, there will be some limitations on some Dexcom device models. However, it solves one of the biggest problems with Garmin data monitoring: the use of third-party applications.
To date, if a user with type 1 or type 2 diabetes wanted to track their glucose levels on a Garmin, they had to. through third-party applications, installed outside of official Garmin platforms. Something that has been able to put many of them at risk, because it takes software official and reliable that takes precise measurements in real time, as is the case of the app of Dexcom.
