I use Linux on my desktop and all I want to do is read the data and put the numbers in a spreadsheet. :)
I've tried many apps on my smartphone but they all seem to upload my data to the cloud.
I won't do that.

I noticed one app wasn't even correct.
I set the units to mmol/L and a reading of 8.0 in my meter transfers as 8.1 mmol/L in the app.

Hi, Jammer. Which meter are you using? Which phone OS (iOS or Android)? That info will help us try to ID some possible alternatives.

Accu-Chek Guide meter.
Android 11
any idea why an app would have that kind of bug?

Was it the only reading in the app or were there more? Maybe it was giving you an average??? I just looked at my meters on line site and it was only showing averages.The web site showed a daily trend line with points plotted but no values. If I wanted to see the daily data, had to look at the phone app. Strange,

I'm not real familiar with any of the equipment involved here but I did visit the Accu-Chek Guide Web site. Are you using the mySugr app? There's a Pro version that exports to Excel (though it takes a fair amount of digging on their Web site to figure out they're doing this through AWS).

You're probably looking for a solution that will use either a cable or Bluetooth to transfer data from the meter to your Android device? I saw something called the health2sync that would work with the Guide meter and a typical recent Samsung Android phone. But finding something that will work for sure will require more info on your environment.

GlucoseMe or something.
I'll try the mySugr app but that is overkill.

Yes.
That seems hard to find.
They don't seem to do anything simple anymore. :-(

Sounds like GlucoMe. Yep, cloud-based. mySugr might be overkill. Probably worth looking at some of the other apps in the Google store to see if there's one that's got the features and connectivity you want. I wonder if any of them can talk to either a micro-SD drive or a thumb drive that you then could move to your Linux computer or whether that's something Android lets you designate on the device.

I was using the Guide for a while and yes, it changes the reading. Don’t know why, stopped using it about when I discovered the Freestyle Libre Sensors and now I just use the reader from that.
