Nice but It seems that it doesn't work for the FR 735XT. It only works for the first time after installing. Every other time it looks like the widget is broken and you can not see anything. I also tried to use a new API but same problem after change the API. Please try to fix it.

So far so good. Useful display. A tad larger font would be nice but I realize that space issues may prevent that.

I have the FR 735XT and am only getting the scrambled screen that the most recent reviews have described. I had a brief glimpse of the screen that you picture on connect IQ, and it was gone. Haven't seen any comments about how to get past this.

Still the most accurate for weather and a really easy layout to read! Well worth making the donation to get the code to activate background colour change... To developer. Is there any chance going back to the location being shown as street or town please? Currently defaults to nearest city for me. Using f5 sapphire fw8.00

Something happened in fw7.00 where geolocation I get from the API is sometimes completely bizarre. I have no idea what’s happening. So that’s one problem. The other issue is the reverse geolocation naming where I use nominatim and google maps and try to be smart about which to use. Since in some areas of the world one is better and in others the other is. And the data quality varies vastly between countries. The heuristic system I have now seems to work the least bad for the most places of all I’ve tried :D

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.

error 104 after I installed it on my forerunner 230. Then a normal display appears for a few seconds then comes a completely erratic screen

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

July 25, 2017 | Version 0.11.2-upd

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.

July 3, 2017 | Version 0.11.2

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.

June 29, 2017 | Version 0.11.2

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.

Contrast worth 5starts for you.

Combination of extra contrast and black background is excellent! Great widget!

Black background is a reward for a donation. As stated in the app description.

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 ;)

June 14, 2017 | Version 0.10.1

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

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
