Apple Watch for Diabetes

A few months ago I finally made the leap to purchasing an Apple Watch. I wasn’t interested in one until the Series 2 Nike versions came out and one of the bands used the same color as the company I own. But, I have a rule that I don’t purchase technology until I absolutely need it. Well, it was finally time. I needed it because I am exercising more and I wanted to track my heart rate, calories burned, etc.

I have high blood pressure and I have anxiety from time to time so tracking my heart rate is something that I like to be able to do at any time. Especially when I am at the gym exercising.

Tracking my exercise is something that has always been difficult for me. In fact, any type of logging, especially blood sugar and food, are extremely difficult because I never keep up with it. Tracking my activity levels is one of my favorite features of the watch. I can easily choose from either elyptical, playing basketball, or moderate walking from my activity tracker.

One of the biggest features that I don’t have available on my Apple Watch yet is connection to my CGM. That is probably the biggest feature that is missing at this time. It’s the only bit of information that is extremely important to me that I don’t have access to on my watch.

I highly recommend the watch if you have a fast-paced on the go lifestyle that includes exercising. It makes it easier for me to check emails, text, and see whose calling, all while working out.

Do you wear an Apple Watch? What are your opinions and thoughts? Do you wear a competitor to Apple?
