BluCon is an electronic device which reads data from any compatible NFC tag and sends data to any Bluetooth enabled device. BluCon is not a medical device. It is an electronic device which reads data from the Abbott sensor and sends that data to a mobile app without making any changes to that data.

If you find any issues with connecting back to iPhone after direct connection to Apple watch, you should go to phone settings and unpair the NightRider, then open the LinkBluCon app and pair again the NightRider. In case you are not getting new readings on Apple watch in direct-mode or Apple watch screen does not show any glucose numbers, reinstall the LinkBluCon app on the Apple watch.

“Please unpair and pair the device from the phone Bluetooth settings. Here are the steps given below:

1. Go to Phone Bluetooth settings and unpair the device by tapping on BLU… (device name) and then ‘Forget this device’
2. Restart the phone, and follow the directions on quick reference guide.”

You can use a knife with a sharp tip and insert that between the NightRider edge and Libre sensor and twist the knife a bit. This way you can separate it.

“Seems NightRider pairing is not done correctly. If you look at the “About” screen of the LinkBluCon app, see what is after “BluCon firmware version”. If this is empty then your pairing is not done correctly.

1. To pair correctly, please go to phone Bluetooth settings screen and unpair “BLU…” device
2. Open the LinkBluCon app, select the option “Connect To BluCon” and then tap on “Scan” button. Reset the NightRider by pressing the switch one time in the hole with a pin (if you see RED light blink for a split of a second that means NightRider is turned ON if you don’t see RED light, press one more time)
3. When you see pop-up to enter the passcode, enter the six digit number printed on the side of the NightRider, Once you press the switch in the hole you have about 10 seconds to enter the code.
4. You should see GREEN link icon on the screen, a reading will appear in a couple of minutes.

“Please do following steps again.

1. Go to the phone bluetooth settings and unpair the device by tapping on BLU… ( device name) and then ‘Forget this device’
2. Restart the phone
3. Open the Link BluCon app
4. Select the “Connect to BluCon” option
5. Tap on the scan button and reset the NightRider ( Make sure you see red light blink for a split of a second when press the switch in the hole)
[ Note: Press the switch gently only one time with a pin if you don’t see red light blink press one more time]
6. Enter the 6 digit passcode printed on the side of the NightRider after serial number and on the box below the serial number

In future, when you pair the nightrider in direct mode to apple watch, and then switch back the connection to iPhone you need to pair again.”
