    Does anyone know if you can use a Smart Watch to directly scan a freestyle libre?
    If this is possible which smart watches are best to do this? I'm guessing the watch would have to have NFC like a smart phone does.

    The only info I can find include a MaioMaio to get continuous bg results.

    Thanks

    There are others but I use miao miao and xdrip with a ticwatch pro 2020 it seems to work okay and I find it very helpful, there are cheaper watches such watlaa but how good I do not know, P.S. You do not have to scan with the above it just sends your bg reading every 5 minutes to your smartwatch

    I have just purchased a Watlaa watch after having problems with my Ticwatch Pro.
    So far I am very impressed with the Watlaa. It is totally standalone but can also connect to Xdrip+
