Just installed and paid on my Fenix 5X Plus and Love it! Fully configured with environmental data since I also wear Vivosport as main tracker. Highly recommended!

I`m very happy with this watchface :-) Alles funktioniert wie es soll, trotz der Datenmenge ist die Uhr übersichtlich. Wetter und Wind funktioniert.

Actually has a donation message on the watch face!! You have to manually enter your location to get weather and sunrise/sunset info. All the other watch faces I use do this automatically. It does look good.

The longitude/latitude in the settings is a backup option in case the location fetch from the last activity does not succeed.

Ugly font Greedy developer that covers purchase as "donation". Donation is a free will but not because of annoying messages on the watch face. There are a couple of similar watch faces that free and give the same functionality.

Nobody is twisting your arm to use the face if you don't like it. The clock face is fully functional without donating a cent, a (very) occasional encouragement message in the smallest text possible will be shown twice per hour. Cheers, Peter.

I really like this watch face but it’s stuck in Brussels and won’t update my location. I’ve been using it for a couple days. Any suggestions on how to fix this bug?

Hi Peter, I feel this is by far the best watch face after trying several. So many rich features. I have just added the 2nd time zone which is very handy since I am constantly working through logs from a different country. Nice work...

Hi Peter! Great job! This has to be the best WF on my new Fenix 5. Also, have duly made a donation; you deserve it! Just one query though, the temperature shows in Fahrenheit instead of Centigrade despite I changing settings on my watch. Kindly advise on the issue. Thanks in anticipation. Cheers mate!

The weather data is cached to save battery life, so you won't notice an immediate change after changing the temperature unit on the watch to celcius, but it should be reflected on the next internet fetch. Cheers, Peter.

Super nice WF. I have been using the paid version over a year and everything is perfect. Appreciate it very much if humidity and probability of precipitation could be added as weather options.

Developer Reply

Yahoo weather does not provide values for humidity or probability of precipitation, but I might add it in the future if I change the weather provider. Cheers, Peter.

Very, very nice WF! Full of data, full of options for personalization and still not overcrowded. Batterylife seems also rather great. AND finally a really nice font for the time....surprisingly a rare case in most WF. Only wish left for me would be a slightly larger or bold date. Btw.... Inverted colour theme (white/black) leads also to inverted moon phase icon...could lead to surprises while watching the sky... ;-D

Thanks Nikolay. Due to all the functionality in Data Lover there's no memory left to use a bigger font. Cheers, Peter.

I thought the altitude should be available as a data field option on your device type, but I'll add it to my to do to check. Cheers, Peter.

Need help. The app works great except for the fact that temperature is usually inaccurate. Realized it might be the recurrence in which it updates (*please confirm if this is true*), but I saw there was an option for donating which would allow for shorter update periods. Would this actually help? Also, I can't donate because the link doesn't work, or it does but the Garmin Browser is outdated, so trying to do directly from Paypal app but can't find Peter De Decker's account. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Developer Reply

Make sure that the location has been set right, this is explained in Q1 in the FAQ: http://starttorun.info/data-lover . Donations are really optional as the app should work just as well without donation. Without donation the update of the weather will be slightly slower (every 2 hours on the assumption that each fetch succeeds). For the weather fetch to succeed there must be a active bluetooth connection, internet must be available and Garmin Connect Mobile must be actively running on your phone. In the FAQ at the bottom there are also donation buttons in case you do want to make a contribution. Cheers, Peter.
