Hi, It's on my list already :) Hope to have it included in the next version. But no promises when that will be. Hopefully before summer, but real life and real work keeps me busy these days...

Amazing watch face. Only question is can you maybe add the estimated battery life to the widget. If you can do that, that will make this even better. Thanks for your great work!

Hello, thank you for your great app. May be a request for a future version. On the statistics page, this could be great if after "last day" and "since the mark" values you indicate the average consumption per hour over these periods.

That's a design decision. Better to show battery a little lower than it actually is.

great app with readable graphs. The only thing i don't understand is why the data are cleaned when you modify the graph scale ? thanks

Memory concerns... To keep the graph as detailed as possible, the widget reads the battery as often as possible for the given resolution. For instance, when displaying a one day graph, the widget checks the battery every six minutes. That is 240 data points for a 24 hour period, which matches the screen resolution nicely. So when displaying a one week graph, the widget checks every 42 minutes, which again is 240 data points for a 7-day period. There is no point in checking the battery more often, because the screen cannot show more detailed data. So when going from 1 day to 1 week, there is only data stored for the first day of the week, so only 1/7th of the graph is visible. When going from 1 week to 1 day, the graph is constructed from the 1 week data, so it should not disappear in that instance. That is how it is supposed to work, anyway.

Best battery meter ever! Loved it on older watches and am really happy that it has been made available for FENIX 6 now. Thumbs up!

Athos Widget is Nonsens. I have installed it to control my battery usage. Normally my Fenix 5 batterylife is about 2 week. After installing this my battery life is going down to 5 or 6 days. The watch uses abt 50% mor power than without this widget.

What device do you have? I'm running the widget on a fenix 5, a fenix 6 Pro and a Vivoactive 3 and do not see any abnormal battery drain. Please contact me by using the 'Contact Developer' link so I can sort this out.

Don’t use it, it drained my battery 45% in 12 hours after installing this widget. It was 12% per day before the installation on my FR245M.

Please don't forget to add support: Fenix 6X Pro Solar! It's not possible to control charge level without your widget :-( New Release was done, but without this version.

I have a Fenix 5 plus. I downloaded the latest version just today It is displayed in the Statistics at the bottom: “2.5 Legacy”. Is it just a typo of the version instead of 3.2 and really the latest version of Battery Gauge has been installed or is it something wrong?

Developer Reply
January 5, 2020, torsteinvh

I'll have to double check, but the 5 Plus should have the 3.2 version with background monitoring. But it is also entirely possible that I forgot to include the 5 Plus when I made the latest build... Anyway, I will check and upload a new version if necessary :)
