Design of an Android Wear Smartwatch Application as a Wearable Interface to the Diabetes Diary Application

Ömer PEKTAŞ [1] , Murat KÖSEOĞLU [2] , Miroslav MUZNY [3] , Gunnar HARTVİGSEN [4] , Eirik ÅRSAND [5]


In this study, an application was developed for Android-based smartwatches which has the capacity of monitoring the state of diabetes mellitus and indicating the data concerning the physical activities and cardiac rhythm. Android Studio was used to develop and design the application. The application consists of five pages (glucose, insulin, carbohydrate, physical activity, and heart rate) and a watch face. The Dexcom G4 Platinum sensor was used to provide the user’s continuous glucose data. The application not only provides monitoring but also allows the users to enter data entry from the pages. Thus, it is possible to use it as a diary by people with diabetes. The development process of the application was done in collaboration with the Norwegian Centre for e-Health Research in Tromsø, Norway. Also, the application operates simultaneously with an Android phone application called Diabetes Diary, which is developed by this research center.
