So I got to thinking about Sugar Mate and what configurations would be possible in order to see data remotely via the web portal and the Sugar Mate app and all the other methods possible for Sugar Mate. So I’m trying to wrap my mind around what devices are required and hope that someone has the correct combinations of devices that COULD make all the data possible to be viewed by others?
First, this app effectively allows you to get rid of the receiver (put it in a drawer). As long as the phone has the G5 mobile app and you have the Sugar Mate as a follower, you can share the data with multiple people via viewing/logging into the web URL, or via one of the other devices sharing methods.
So, the iPhone is the first. If you have the iPhone with the Sugar Mate app on it, you can see the data on the web portal as long as the phone is near the transmitter and you’ve added Sugar Mate as a follower in the G5 Mobile app.
Besides the iPhone, I know the Apple Watch is possible to have the app on it but the question I have about the watch is…does one STILL have to have the phone nearby with the G5 mobile app on it? I tend to think yes.
There are options for Mac and an app provided for that platform, but the phone is still required here as well I would think.
Then there is the Web URL that gets populated from the G5 Mobile follow.
I really like this because it’s “live” data…there is no 15-minute delay. The data propagates into the iCloud calendar that allows for the immediate updating of the data on all devices. It’s very clever.
Sugar Mate is currently offered for the iPhone, iPad, Macc App, Responsive Web app (sugarmate.io), Apple Watch, Alexa Skill, Siri, CarPlay (via Siri), Apple Health, Android (via the web app), Excel, SMS, and Voice calls.
I only wish it were for android because at present, I am the one with the iPhone in our house so I “believe” that in order for me to see the web data at work, I would need to keep my phone at home since it’s got the SugarMate app installed?
But then I’m thinking…the G5 Mobile app has Sugar Mate as a follower…so why wouldn’t the data just get fed into the iCloud regardless of the G5 Mobile app that happens to be capturing the data? Erin’s android has the G5 Mobile App installed and it’s the same account and has the Sugar Mate email within it.
That’s the part I’m not sure about…so anyone that knows, please let me know!
I know this message rambled somewhat, but my thoughts are always rambled so, yeah.
