This app has a simple and easy to read interface but doesn't give accurate location words. It gives a different set of three words for the exact same location every time it is activated and never once were of a the same three words as produced by the actual app on my phone. The locations ranged between 30-130 yards away for the ones that I checked. It therefore fails in its fundamental task. The function of the app deserves a one star but I have given a two star rating to reflect the appearance. If the location's three words can be accurately shown, I will gladly reinstall it.

There is not much the app can do about the accuracy of the watch. Put you watch on a table, record an activity for 5 minutes and look at the track. You'll see it dances about all over the place rather than give a single location. There is nothing in the app I can do to change this.

Great app works brilliantly. thanks. -Is it possible to keep GPS active so that refreshing location is faster. -Also to include the w3w data offline. - have an option to view standard god coordinates Thanks

These are interesting ideas. It is not possible to have the w3w data offline otherwise I'd have done this. This data is not available from w3w. The other two are possible so I'll look at them. The API has access limits unless you want to pay so I would have to limit the refresh frequency.

Works perfectly!! Link your watch to a phone with a data plan, check your watch has a good GPS fix & you'll quickly get your 3Words location on your watch without having to get your phone out! Cheers Gasteropod!

Doesn't work. Always says 'no location' even though the watch is connected to the phone and there IS a connection to the Internet, both through WiFi and 4G

The location is determined via GPS not the phone. Go outside and try again.

After a while it responded with the OS map coordinates but no "3 words", but then said "No internet connection". I moved indoors & my Fenix6 picked up my router signal and then displayed the 3 words, which is utterly pointless, little chance of picking up internet once in the great outdoors.

I guess you did not read, "Note that the words are only shown if internet connectivity is available via bluetooth connection to a phone or via LTE for watches that support LTE."

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
