I used % on my Cozmo and now that I have Animas, % seems to be the only option.
The Cozmo let me change in 5% increments and the Animas only allows 10%, which is kind of annoying since the Animas can adjust basal in smaller increments for regular basal rates.
I find if I exercise in the afternoon/evening doing an overnight 8-hour temporary basal of -10% works perfectly. Setting that basal rate allows me to wake up at a perfect number (around 5.5) in the morning. If I forget to do that -10% I end up going low in the middle of the night or waking up low in the morning, if I've exercised the afternoon/evening before.
It's such a quiet little beep on the Ping I don't bother turning it off. Never wakes me up.. neither does the 'last bolus 2 hrs ago...' beep wake me. That's why I sleep with the dex under the pillow on vibrate/beep LOL
