Description

A widget to display data from Open Weather Maps</p><p>Any questions or bugs, please use "Contract Developer" at the right.</p><p></p><p>You need an APIkey to use the widget. Please see https://openweathermap.org/appid</p><p>To set your APIkey for the app, you use App Settings. Here's a basic "How to" for that: https://forums.garmin.com/developer/connect-iq/w/wiki/14/changing-your-app-settings-in-garmin-express-gcm-ciq-mobile-store</p>

What’s New

0.18.5 - replaced "near l" and "near h" with "feels" and "near avg". Near H and Near L confused folks. "Feels" is the current "feels like" temperature, and near avg is the average of readings in the area at the same point in time</p><p>0.15 - changed labels for current nearby low and high temperatures to better reflect their meaning, added MARQ device.</p><p>0.14 - added manual switching for screens. Use upper right button, or screen tap on touch devices, For GPS, use "menu" (hold "up", menu button, long press of screen on one button touch devices)

Hello. This app is really great. Two questions: What is "near AV"? Can the units be changed?? Thanks and BR

Developer Reply

"near" is a value determined using near by readings, so not from a single point. To change units, you do that in the standard settings on the watches - Settings-system-units

How to get OWM API Key?

Developer Reply
October 21, 2021, jim_m_58

Read the description for this widget (make sure to click on "more"). You need to create an OWM account to get your API key and then use App Settings to set it for this widget

Great widget! Just everything a weather app should have!

Worked for one day then uninstalled itself and won't reinstall.

Please use contact developer for stuff like this. This isn't an issue with the app itself, but maybe how you are trying to install it, and knowing what message you see or don't see may help you to see what's happening.

I love the App, however I downloaded it for the wind and I was hoping the metrics would be km/h. If that was an option I’d give 5 star!

Works like a charm, API keys are easy to generate through OWM, good weather widget if you're far away from the nearest weather station that Garmin takes data from. But whatever you do, for the love of God, don't turn on auto update on background, it went through the battery really fast, 2 days on FR55 on 1hr(or was it 30min?) updates

Great app, all the weather you need at a glance. I like the update on open feature and the fact it includes the weather location as a verification. Tap to switch screens is a nice addition. The only thing that would add to this is some sort of long-term outlook like a 5-day forecast. Either way, top-notch 5-stars.

Worked smoothly and perfectly on first install,very accurate as I can choose my own api key. Thanks so much for making this and sharing it with us all : -)

Finally got it to work, and it works like a charm. The native/vanilla Garmin weather widget never worked fine for me (I use iOS phone), had a constant error and was unable to check the weather on my Garmin Fénix 5S. I then decided to change to this widget made by the community. Sure, the initial configuration is somewhat of a drawback, but as far as the widget goes, it works perfectly fine. Don't mind the negative reviews, they are mostly from people who did not managed to configure the widget properly, but it neither the developer nor the widget fault, it's OpenWeather's. I will give some steps on how I managed to configure the API key, should they be helpful to anyone: 1) Go to https://openweathermap.org/ and Register 2) Apply for a free API key. 3) Go to your email to confirm your email address. 4) You will receive an email with an API key. 5) Go to your Garmin Connect app and on the widget settings, set the API key. 6) Wait a while (may take up to some hours for the key to activate, but I only had to wait a few minutes) 7) Go outside where you have GPS coverage, turn off and on your device and sync for good measure. 8) The widget should now display correct values.

Running perfect on my Fenix 5. All what I need in one view. Many thanks.

This would be a 5 star app if we could just change the winds units. Would like to knots or kmph

Good app, it does what it needs to but I'd love to be able to change around the data fields. It would just make this widget a lot better

This tells me nothing. Use contact developer and tell me what device/firmware, and what you see when you try to use it.

Excellent tool. It presents all the weather info you can think of, and loads quickly. One request: can we have the option to view Baro data as Inches of Mercury? Thanks!

Salve. Vorrei sapere perché fino a poco tempo fa ‘ la località era visualizzata correttamente. E da qualche giorno mi viene visualizzata come Globe. Grazie

This is a case where you should have used "contact developer" as here I have no idea what watch and what you've tried

Great app, works brilliantly. My only request is that I’d like to be able to change the units of wind speed from m/s to knots.
