    Hi,

    Has anyone managed to get xDrip+ working on a Samsung Galaxy Active Watch?
    I use Xdrip+ on Android and send data to Nightscout, also have another Android phone connected to Nightscout.

    Cheers, John

    You won't be able to use xdrip+ on any Galaxy watch as they use their own Tizen OS. You need a watch that uses wear OS. I have a ticwatch which is perfect for the job.

    Thanks Muneeb.

    I just found a post which seems to indicate it might be possible. See comment from Osoblu.
    I will post the link in another comment below (this forum has a funny spam protection that is preventing me from posting links until i have posted 3 comments. Go figure...

    What do you think?

    I know people have come up with ways of making xDrip provide data to a Samsung watch. It's a little involved, but it works better than Wearable Widgets. I'd take a look on the Facebook xDrip group - you should be able to find it there.

    Do a google search

    You can use an app that reads notifications to tasker as a variable

    Then use watchmaker app to design or download a watch face that shows the tasker variable

    I did find a page with detailed setup instructions if I find the link I will post but you should be able to locate it yourself

    Watchmaker work quite well
