Can I view my Dexcom G5 Mobile CGM data on an Android Wear Watch? 

Yes, you can check your CGM information on your wrist! The Dexcom CGM App for Android supports Android Wear Watches and can be used to discreetly view your glucose reading, trend arrow, and trend graph.

Your Android Wear Watch will only communicate with your Android smart device, not the Dexcom G5 Mobile Transmitter. You will not receive alerts, alarms, and other notifications on the watch unless it is connected with your smart device. For example, if you have your watch on and you go out, but leave your smart device at home, you will not receive any CGM updates.

Your Android Wear Watch syncs your current CGM data from your smart device. There may be a brief delay before your watch face shows current information.

To set up Dexcom CGM data on your Android Watch with Android Wear 1.5 and below:
Once the Dexcom G5 App is installed on your compatible Android smart device, the CGM watch face will automatically appear in the Android Wear App on your phone.

  • To set up Dexcom CGM data on your Android Watch, press and hold on the current watch face.
  • Scroll to the Dexcom watch face, then tap to select.

To set up Dexcom CGM data on your Android Watch and Android Wear 2.0:
Once the Dexcom G5 App is installed on your compatible Android smart device, you will need to load the CGM watch face through the Play Store app on the watch.

  • Click the watch power button to access apps
  • Select Play Store app
  • Scroll down to the "Apps on your phone" item. You will see a list of available apps with watch content
  • Select Dexcom G5 Mobile
  • Select Install
  • Go to the phone’s Android Wear app and select the Dexcom CGM watch face

See your Android Wear instructions and your Dexcom User Guide for more information on setting up a watch face.
