The LinkBluCon app can be used with BluCon (TransAm or NightRider) with Abbott's FreeStyle Libre sensor to get near real-time glucose trends.
Type 1 and Type 2 diabetic patients can use this app to connect their iPhone to a BluCon device to read the Freestyle Libre sensor every 5 minutes. Readings are available to the user through a user-friendly and intuitive GUI. This relieves the user from having to scan their sensor every 5 minutes.
LinkBluCon connects to BluCon over a Bluetooth connection to display glucose trends. It also provides a logbook to view past readings. No sign-up is required.
LinkBlucon app can share the glucose readings with the healthKit by enabling the option in settings. User can see his glucose levels in healthKit.

Please note that a fingerprick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels or if hypoglycemia or impending hypoglycemia is reported by the LinkBluCon app or when symptoms do not match the LinkBluCon app readings.
This app is not approved by Abbott and there's no guarantee about the correctness of glucose values read from the Abbott Freestyle Libre sensor.

Ratings and Reviews
I had the Eversense implant CGM, but the transmitter technology wasn’t the best. I recently changed back to the FreeStyle Libre sensor, but missed the constant glucose values. I got the NightRider to supplement that continual reading technology, and it’s pretty darn good. The UI is better than some glucose apps, the connection between NightRider and my phone was easy.
The only thing I don’t like about this App is that it either doesn’t connect to Apple Health, or if it does, I can’t figure out where to turn that connect on. So... developers... if you could, PLEASE get this app to connect with Apple Health!
Night rider and App.
After being inundated with emails touting the direct to watch connectivity, I bought a Night Rider. After some back and forth about delivery with customer care, I received delivery. Luckily it was received after the software update a few days ago to support the US 14 day sensor. If not, it would not have worked at all. Per customer care, the direct to watch functionality for the US 14 day sensor should be available in a few weeks. Nothing about this is mentioned anywhere in their marketing materials. I only bought this for the direct to watch function. Charging $25 for shipping a $9 priority mail envelope is also obscene.
Update July 17,2020
Decided to give it another try. The direct to watch functionality works. The app was installed with the complication. I added the complication to my watch face and it works as expected. Then the app pops up on your screen. I have still to find a way to see my watch face on wrist lift or crown press.... the open app is always displayed. It appears to run as an ACTIVITY which on Apple’s software is always displayed with wrist lift on. A crown press to required to get back to your watch fact.... which displays your data via the complication. Dear developers, what am I missing?
Developer Response ,
Please install the latest version of the app to see readings on the Apple watch, it was released last month, sorry for the confusion. Please reach out to support to get the refund of shipping. Could you please provide an update? If the device is not working for you as expected please send it back for refund within next 2 weeks.
Hardware is AWFUL!!! App is decent
Have been waiting over a month after retuning the BluCon device to Ambrosia. Almost impossible to contact other then random messages from them via Facebook Messenger. Just a few canned responses from them via e-mail. Hardware did not work consistently from day one. The Sony battery that they provided did not last a week. Most I ever was able to get was eight days. After a six weeks the device got really flakey. Had to remove and then reinstall battery to get it to work part of the time. Eventually it just stopped working mAfter getting an RMA to return I have been waiting over a month to get a replacement. The software has consistently gotten better with each update. If the hardware worked and customer support was available I would highly recommend this product. Until then possible buyers need to run from this product.
