Question: Apple watch glucose monitoring

I just finished watching the apple keynote and heard in the first video about the apple watch of a girl that used her watch for glucose monitoring. Does anyone know how she did this, like what I need to get to do this?

Answer:

Hi


No current or newly announced Apple Watch model offers glucose monitoring as a built-in feature.


Various third-party apps for iPhone - some of which include an app for Apple Watch - offer features that are designed to help with the recording and analysis of glucose levels, some when used in conjunction with specific third-party accessories.


For example:


One Drop includes an app for Apple Watch and can sync data directly from a Bluetooth-enabled blood glucose meter (available separately as a third-party accessory):


Dexcom G5TM Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System:


Dexcom G4® PLATINUM System with Share


Keep in mind Apple's Important safety information, which includes:

We use the Dexcom app already to see BG for my daughter while at school, BUT, that requires her to have her iPhone nearby(or on her) to transmit the data to us.


My question is - will the Apple Watch 3 be capable of transmitting the Dexcom data so we can track our child's BG - without her having an iPhone on her for the job? THAT would be a huge step forward for us and for her quality of life.


Thanks for any help on this!

Examples of Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) battery life are detailed here:


Apple Watch - Battery - Apple


I'm afraid that no-one here can provide you with any additional information. You are not talking to Apple here - this is a user-based technical support community.

I understand that this isn't Apple, but a user community - thanks. And for the battery info link. Looks like 4 hours of LTE which could potentially work. Dexcom app currently transmits data every 5 minutes and only take a moment. Will update if/when I get more info.
