Detailed discharge rate is a great addition. Awesome update!

Looking pretty good on the first view, thank you ... ;-)) Just one thing I would like to know. How can I reset long term average in case I want to? Just switch off and on the watch?

bring up widget 3 times and most of the history prior to charging will disappear. I haven't come up with a better way yet. Tapping on the screen will break down long term, since last chg, and since last view

Loved it before the last update but I now I wished I could switch between long term average discharge rate and normal, old way. How can I now realize battery drain of a new app or new software version?!

I will add a setting that disables the long term average.

Great widget. Just an idea, is it technically feasible to add a list of top battery drainers? That would be really helpful to know this. New widgets or apps run in background or request data every second or so and it's always a bit trial and error process to identify why battery dropped by e.g. 30%.

That information is not available.

Good - clean and clear interface; good data Not so good: 1. the app clears history whenever detects the device is charged even if the charge is not complete (ie 100% charged); 2. the app sometimes clears history after synchronization with the smartphone, via Garmin Connect, so no device charge involved.

Nekem nem mutatja a hátralevő akkuidőt. Így semmivel sem több mint a gyári akku kijelző.

Very good. Sometimes it resets. Great anyways to have an idea of the discharge rate.

The widget clears it's history when it detects a charge cycle. Are you seeing something different from that?

Good widget too monitor battrey drain, one thing little bit buggy ans slow calculation is time remaining, it was installing more than 24 hrs and showing 14 days remaining.

Thank you for this widget! And thank you for the fast responding to make the widget compatible to the Vivoactive 3 Music! It's the best widget for monitoring the battery.

Just installed this on my vivoactive 3 and it doesn't show time remaining only a -h

Developer Reply

That means it can't estimate time remaining because not enough time since charge has elapsed. Should work after 20 minutes

This is a really elegant widget. Well done! Is there any chance you can add a decimal to the time (in days, e.g. 2.7 days) since unplugged (for round watch faces)? Provided there is room, of course, but it would provide even more detail.
