Eigentlich ein schönes Wetter-Widget. Aber leider zeigt die App bei mir allzuoft "No Data" und beschwert sich, dass kein Internet vorhanden sei. Warum merkt sich das Widget Ort und Daten nicht, wenn es mit dem Smartphone verbunden war? Ich will das Smartphine doch nicht zu jeder Aktivität minehmen, bei der ich Wetterdaten gut gebrauchen könnte: Laufen, Wandern, Klettern, Skifahren, Segeln ...Da wäre gut, wenn die Daten auch ohne aktuelle Internetverbindung sichtbar blieben, vielleicht mit dem Hinweis, dass sie möglicherweise nicht aktuell sind.

I'll reply in english, as most users is impacted by this. DarkSky API has a limit of 1000 requests per day for free service. With current load from the widget it runs out halfway of the day. I've asked DarkSky if there is an option to increase the limit for free widget like this or the only option is paid version.

Best weather widget I've come across. Gives all the information one would want and more. Far better than the standard widget on the VivoActive 3. Along with the numerical information, you get wind, humidity, and many useful graphs. The icon is a bit funky but I understand it's intent. The developer is very quick to respond to questions and even fixed a small defect immediately. Well done weather app.

Best weather app ever. Love how the guy got mad about the icon but never seemed to see your response on how it can be changed back to the original. I can delete like 3 other apps because this one displays the info of all of them. Thanks.

Ugliest widget on the store. What's this icon? Stop this PC nonsense and please bring back the girl icon. Uninstalled this thing after update. Most ridiculous update.

Lol... it's "politically correct"... But you haven't read my description about update. No hope is lost. Navigate to the menu and: voila! Change weather icon xD

Das Widget selbst ist durchdacht und arbeitet zuverlässig, wenn auch manchmal verzögert. Aber anstatt der komischen Figuren hätte man weitere sinnvollere Optionen /Werte inkludieren können. Abgesehen davon, gute Arbeit.

Possibly the best weather forecast widget. Awesome work!

Nice. Sometimes a little slow on refresh but it does what it needs to be doing. Perhaps it's to show the data previous synced in stead of waiting? Is it also possible to add uv status?

Very good app expect that there is no way to switch to celsius and fahrenheit means nothing for me. Note my watch settings is all metric.

So the widget relay on your watch settings. If it's metric you'll see celcius, if imperial - fahrenheit.

Works very well out of the box, thank you! But please remove the boy/girl icon, or at least add an option for that.

Fun or not, the Woman graphic is weak. Best clean visualisation of DarkSky data I've seen is "Forecaster" on Android. Port of that to Garmin woul be nice.

Latest update v1.4 changed graphs to display 24 hour data instead of just "today". This mirrors the DarkSky iOS app's decision to change the first data displayed as "Next 24 Hours". Overall, this could be an improvement if it wasn't for one minor detail that impacts usability in a major way: Graphs now do not have times displayed on the X-axis! It used to be easy to see on the old version's graphs when precipitation would occur, when the high and low temperatures would occur, etc. On a positive note, this new version of the widget has improved location screen and a new GPS screen! In previous versions the widget was using Google maps API, which Google unfortunately now charges for, making the old widget inoperable due to the large number of requests coming from users. It appears that in this version it's been fixed and possibly changed to something else such as OpenStreetMap API. Great improvement! The new "timestamp" & GPS screen displays current GPS coordinates and timestamps in Degrees & Minutes format. It's great to see that data to validate that GPS is working properly, as before it was unclear without using another widget to get the coordinates. I think it's important enough to point out that due to the graph formatting change, it becomes more difficult to make sense of the graphs without using the DarkSky iOS app, which does display times (however now in vertical format which is also not as preferable as it's own old version which was horizontal). At least the darksky.net website still displays time values on the X-axis for the small horizontal bars, and graphs (when you click through to "more details"). I still love that this app uses DarkSky API and weather data! The screens and color graphs still look great! I'm still trying to understand the need and rationale for the lady icon, as it seems to me this precious space on such a small screen could display other data, but it adds an almost quirky charm, and cloud & sun graphics do usefully change.

Hey James, thanks for the review. There was a lot of people asking for switch to forecast as ie. in the evening information regarding past day is of limited value. If the only issue is lack of numbers (which to be honest can be easily calculated as now + 4h for first tick, now + 6h for second and so on) then I can add them in next version.

Very nice graphics but the picture of the lady is an unnecessary use of space and should at least be optional.

My first expression was a little bit negative 'What a weird design with this girl?! WTF', but now I like it. It is strange, but it is unique :) So, pls, do not listen negative reviews about this girl image! ;) Also, all the remaining data-fields and screens with data plots are very informative and well-designed

Dla Krakowa pogoda się nie sprawdza. Od dwóch dni burze, chmury i deszczowo a na windżecie piękna pogoda i zero opadu w historii. Sama koncepcja OK.

Rzucę na to okiem. Zdaje się, że były jakieś zmiany w api Darksky i muszę zakutalizować widget.

Love that this app uses DarkSky API amd weather data! Screens and graphs look great except the strange lady icon. I’m not sure I understand the need and rationale for this... It seems to me that this is wasted space on such a small screen which could display other data.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
