    Feel free to compare the Watlaa to the Ticwatch. (Another compatable device.)
    If you just wish a timepiece that give you your BGs too? The watlaa is a reasonably sturdy competitive price.

    I've dug up the links to both devices.

    I don't normally do watches however. If I thought there was one little snag with the Watlaa? A physical button on the side to activate the home screen befor the touch scrolling?
    Other than that, it's a nice sleek clear to read, easy to navigate watch for the price.
    Edited to add; mine came with 2 magnetic charge cables & a spare sports style strap too.

    & the other one.

    There may actually be more. Don't let my bias on the price sway you..

    The Fitbit Versa 2 is compatible at around £200 but I think the Versa 3 is the same price so could get that also?

    There is a watch face called Glance where you enter your XDrip details and it should automatically relay information from MM to phone then to watch.

    Haven’t tried doing it myself though, I have the watch but couldn’t deal with Libre inaccuracies and at that price point if I have to calibrate a few times a day then what’s the point? Waste of £100/month

    Hi,

    Calibration wise, I check in the morning & good to go.. I will test later in the day. With the MM it sends data at 5minute intervals. In the case of an arrow slope, I count 3or 4 dots back on the xDrip graph (representing 15/20 minutes ago.) due to the time lag on the meter. If the representation is within 0.6/8ish to the meter? I'm happy with that.
    Some folk scan then wait 20?
    Though, I do agree with others the Libre is slow to respond coming up off a low. Which is where keeping a meter handy as a driver is advisable.

    I'll tag in @porl69 who had a Ticwatch I believe & now a Watlaa. @Fairygodmother too. (Watlaa.)
