    Hey all,

    Simple question really, not had a smartwatch before and was just wondering what watches you would reccomed to get your readings from the Miao Miao libre transmitter?

    I have an iPhone, and have seen lots use the Apple iwatch, however I notice the readings go to the phone first and then from the phone to the watch. Does anyone find connection issues are a problem especially when the phone can’t be so close to the watch, or is this not normally an issue?

    Does anyone find it more useful to have a watch where the readings go straight to the watch without going via the phone first? Does anyone know the few watches that do this? Would a Fitbit work?

    It seems you can scan via your phone anyway so you can get the readings on your phone even if it doesn’t go via your phone to get to the watch?

    Many thanks,
    CR741

    I'm not familiar with phone / watch products from the shiny fruit farm but I would have thought it would depend on the setting in the App which at a guess would be Spike?.

    I use Android (green bin thing) with a Ticwatch that both use Wear OS this I use in conjunction with xDrip and there is a setting which forces the watch to connect to MiaoMiao and by pass the phone. When they are both close then they both pick up the same readings :)

    Thinking about it, I'll tag @Mel dCP because she uses shiny fruit farm stuff with a Pebble Watch and might be able to add something more useful than me. I'm sure there others just not sure who :)

    There aren’t any watches complatoble with iPhone that don’t need the phone as an intermediary like there are with Android, sadly. I use an original Pebble and a Pebble Steel with mine.

    Can you use miao miao without a smartwatch?
    I have an iphone and I would like to buy a smartwatch that can connect directly to miao miao without the need to have the iphone all the time. Which are the best options?

    Not with iPhone, no. You need the phone within Bluetooth range for a watch. I believe there are some Samsung options, but I don’t know much more than that.

    For iPhone/Spike App you have choice from Apple Watches, Fitbit Versa/Ionic, Pebble watches and I believe Garmin watch.

    I’ve got a ticwatch e2. I have xDrip on my daughters Samsung phone and the watch. What and where are the settings that allow the watch to work independently from the phone? Each time I try I seem to loose signal.

    I’ve tried Miao Miao Facebook page but no joy so far!
