Works fine and looks great at first, but I get the scrambled screen that others mention the second time I check the widget

Looks like this could be a very nice widget, but unfortunately it just shows a scrambled screen on my fr235. Issue has been reported months ago, but it's still not resolved. Too bad.

As per description - black background only works if you donate.

The widget just takes your device settings. Search Garmin's support on how to change it.

Esta muy bien la aplicación. Es bastante precisa y te hace una buena cronología de las siguientes horas. Recomendable

Great and nice widget! However, I missed an option to show more prediction hours, something like 12h/24h/48h option, or probably see the next hours pressing the start button. Thank you!

Almost perfect! Would be great if you could add background refresh to avoid the 3-5 second delay as it updates from the phone (on my 735XT you also get this funky screen redraw mess when this happens). And an option of using your own API key to save on your server costs. Have donated regardless.

Great app. Excellent look and concept. If there was an option to change the forecast to 2-hours per bar instead of 1-hour, so you could see the whole day at a glance in the morning, it'd be just about perfect for day-to-day use.

Great idea.. cons 1-Hard to see in daylight even with contrast option on. Numbers should be larger. 2-Location name is under the line where the temp goes down, so you can't see it. 3-My biggest problem is that the location doesn't change. It stays in a city 30 miles away, so the weather temp is not accurate..

Get a GPS fix and the location will change. The app will do it automatically if you're out in the open. If not just go out, start an activity so you get that GPS fix, close, open the app again.

As stated by the widget description - you need your watch connected to your phone, otherwise I can't get the weather data.

Very useful widget, I like it very much. I suggest to move name of location on top - above of hours because now weather line is sometime overlapped with this name.

I hate to give a negative review, but no matter what I've tried this app shows the ConnectIQ error symbol (!) when I try to display it.

If you would really "hate to give a negative review" you would have written to me first with what device you're using, how did you install, what has happened,… and I would try to figure it out and fix it. But you didn't do that so you couldn't care less ;)

For me, the most accurate weather app on CIQ so far. Better than accuweather and the stock Garmin app. I use dark sky on my mobile too and it is the most accurate for my location. To add to the other reviews and to what we discussed, I would love to see more contrast in the fonts with the back ground, light grey on the black background and dark grey on the white background... or maybe just white and black :) Also a 3 day forecast in the same style & GPS co-ords instead of location name (for accuracy). Thank you for this app - I had been waiting for something accurate like this - happy to make a small donation!

Thank you! I'm playing around with daily forecasts but haven't found a good way yet to display it on round screens since I need 2 lines (lows and highs) so I might go with a list view but there's nothing like that in the SDK so I'd have to do it from scratch, but I don't have the time. So it's pending… :D

Great start, looking forward to seeing the detail page. Would be nice if it could have a launcher icon (use transparent background since it will be on black on some pages and white on others on the watch) as right now I just get a black square.

Hi I tried this app. Ok it's working. In white foreground is unreadable. It's a pity. But... Sorry . Free PayPal donation , yes I accept. BUT 5€ SORRY it's very expensive. I pay 2or 3 or 4 euros for complete android app. But that's all.5 € it's for a suite of a long app development.

On white background I use light gray and on black I use dark gray so the contrast is exactly the same. It's an aesthetic I like. Since I primarily made this for myself it looks the way I want it to look. That said - the app is completely open-source and under MIT license so you're completely free to fork it, and customize colors in any way you want for yourself. No donation required ;) 5€ is the recommended donation, you're free to donate whatever you like. I had a guy donate 0.05€ and he still got the code. It's not about the money, it's about the intention. I have ~20€/month of server cost which is where donations are going ;)
