Amazing! Works perfect, looks great, is free, all one could ask for.

Fantastic & great looking! As soon as GARMIN gives up sum of that "La Crosse Technology" or "OREGON SCIENTIFICS" for a NICE sun/clouds/rain, even /tornado picture to go with the built in barometer, I'll be nice & see what I can do in leaving you a $$tip for your beautiful widget!!

Many thanks that you have ported the Solar System widget to the vivoactive 3! As I meanwhile moved on to the Garmin venu I would be so thankful if you ported this wonderful widget also to this device with its beautiful AMOLED display.

Barely works can’t zoom in not very interesting
16. juni 2019 | Version 1.4.2
Not possile to remove widget - watch hangs every time I try to do it

Lots of potential but since the default settings cannot be changed it is not useful. It is listed as compatible with the Edge 1030 but it is not.

Vivoactive Aok great .

Great app! I loved to use it to identify the planets on my vivoactive. Please add vivoactive 3 support so I can also enjoy it there. Thank you!
16. marts 2018 | Version 1.3.1
Great app, but it would be better if you could focus on certain planets/Tesla roadster, instead of always having the sun at the center, because I want to have it show the roadster closer with only a few other planets in the fov, but not be super zoomed out from the roadster, overall great app tho love it!!

Hi Splinter, very good suggestion. I'll definitely add the possibility to focus on other objects rather than just the sun. It might take a while as I'm just doing this for fun when I have spare time.
15. februar 2018 | Version 1.3.1
I like it on my Vivoactive. Can you add the Vivoactive 3 to compatible devices?
27. januar 2018 | Version 1.2.2-upd1
Very nice, thank you! :)
18. januar 2018 | Version 1.2.2-upd1
This one is vey cool! The whole (ok, not the whole :-) universe at your wrist. Really nice and a lot of possibilities. Thanks for that.

This is a beautifully constructed widget,
with a huge wealth of information,and runs like a clockwork time machine!
I've installed this on all my watches and I've never had an issue or a bug,and have enjoyed the updates from the developer through the year.
Thanks very much.
All the best,
Fenix 5x 6.0

Thanks a lot for the positive reviews. I plan on adding "Light-minutes" mode, similar to distance but indicated as light-minutes, to know the time it takes to communicate to another planet. Any other idea to make it better?
27. november 2017 | Version 1.2.2-upd1
Cool app. I played with it for 10 minutes on my watch and then my eyes strained. Then I downloaded similar apps on my phone and wowzas!
12. september 2017 | Version 1.2.2-upd
Works great on my Fenix 5X!
19. august 2017 | Version 1.2.2
Love this widget. Especially as the total solar eclipse approaches you can see the moon's position between the earth and the sun.
13. august 2017 | Version 1.2.2
Thanks for the update supporting Fenix 5X.
4. maj 2017 | Version 1.1.5
This is the best downloadable feature from Connect IQ. I'm really looking forward to future details and functions. Awesome! :-D
30. april 2017 | Version 1.1.5
This widget offers everyor a marco view of our universe, it reminds me the fact that we are all just a tiny dust. Very Zen.
27. april 2017 | Version 1.1.5
It would be great if it works on my fenix 5x.
19. januar 2017 | Version 1.1.3
Great widget to get the planet position in perspective. Helps a lot to decode planet brightness in the night.
10. januar 2017 | Version 1.1.3
Fantastic widget with a surprising amount of features. Being able to zoom in and out on the solar system and just forward and back in the future are great! Also great to figure out the best viewing times for planets. For instance now is great for mars, and it wont be this close again until summer of 2018!
30. oktober 2016 | Version 1.1.2
Very cool and lots of information to view about planets and their positions! Can you keep adding things on to the widget like more dwarf planets?
31. oktober 2016, JuliensLab
It is possible to add objects whose orbits are not too eccentric, like Mars or even Pluto. If the error is about less than two pixels, then I think it's acceptable.
However, if the orbit is very eccentric, then it's not possible to approximate that orbit to a circle. The app is capable of plotting a non-circular orbit, but the calculation time is very high (such that if calculating 30 points per orbit and 5 different objects, the watchdog timer will trigger and stop execution, and you'll see an IQ error). For instance, the Halley comet is very eccentric, so it can't be represented as a circle. However, it absolutely possible to display the location of the object, as long as the orbit is not displayed.
Further, some objects tend to not be on the the ecliptic plane (like Pluto), so here we lack the 3rd dimension to properly visualize positions. I'd like to display that at some point but I haven't yet figured out how to do it.
Can you give me a list of planets you'd find relevant to display to assess if they would fit?
