Why on Fenix 3 Hr functions Weather/Temperature/City are disabled? I hate that circle chart.

Sehr übersichtlich. Perfekt für Leute die sich besonders für die HF interessieren.

Thanks Enrico. I agree that the active heart rate chart is one of the prime features of the watch face. Cheers, Peter

Best interactive and customizable Watchface. Spend the money for better weather update - it's wonderful! I am only Weekday and Month in another languages for example in German. Please update :-)

Thanks for the kind words Thomas. Localization is a bit of an issue because it depends partially on externally delivered content (yahoo weather) and even if I were to do localization only for the date it would require loading extra fonts for Chinese languages etc for which I simply don't have sufficient memory left (very little left). So realistically I don't think that localisation will be something for the current range of existing Garmin watches and we'll have to wait for new iterations which will hopefully have more than 92k of memory for watch faces. Anyway I have added localisation to the backlog to look at in the future. Cheers, Peter.

Just Updated the Fenix 5x software from Garmin and I cannot see this watchface available anymore.

Have you tried to factory reset your watch and then retry to install data lover? Cheers, Peter.

It looks like the weatherline nust above the minutes saying ‘mostly cloudy’ is static and not dynamic. Also even after applying the key in the settings there is no way to replace this field. Did I miss something? Could you please advise? Apart from that this is an awesome watchface.

There are 2 options to hide the weather line. 1/ change the right chart to move circles 2/ check the show field 4 in the app settings (option 2 is not available on the fr735xt due to memory restrictions). Cheers, Peter.

Great watch face. But I can't seem to find out what unit the wind speeds are in? Is i possible to change the unit (m/s, knots ect.)?

Developer Reply

You can see the unit when you set the right chart option to weather + wind. It will either be k/h or miles/h depending on whether your watch uses the metric or statute system. Cheers, Peter.

Still a great watch! I like using it. But i have a problem with the weather info. It keeps showing me the weather of a city different from the GPS coordinates i set. I put the coordinate of Paris, which is (48.8566140,2.3522219), but it shows me Venansault, France (46.6853580,-1.5129820) (I have a donation key :) )

You have entered the coordinates in the format as the website http://latlong.net shows them right? Do you have a Vivoactive 3? There's a problem with gps drift on the Vivoactive 3 device firmware. (I have reported this to Garmin but this requires a firmware fix, not something I can fix). (In case you have another device type contact me through the forum or via contact developer). Cheers, Peter.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
