On Forerunner 735XT North is inverted with South on sensor data (outer circle), but shows correct direction on GPS Data (inner circle). See foto - http://imgur.com/a/srQTd

Ich bin mir nicht sicher ob es so gewollt ist, aber ein Kompass der sich nach Sekunden von selber beendet ist für mich unbrauchbar. vivoactive HR - 3.90.000

You are looking for an app and not a widget... A widget is only allowed to run a certain time after which is goes back to the watchface (unless the user interacts with it). I can make this into an app as well, that would run the whole time but yeah... I originally made this as a widget and that was the intent.

Thanks for the widget, lots of useful info. With the cardinal points shown on the outer ring it might be worth showing the heading in degrees directly on the main screen rather having to calculate it using the offset unless that's used in specific activities I'm not aware of? In the detailed screen could you show the GPS heading and the speed instead of the rad compass bearing ?

Thanks for the feedback! The offset was more to give an indication how far off from the main direction you are, but can indeed also add the actual heading in degrees instead (or next to it). Wrt detailed screen info, sure... Had to make some choices but can see if I can add these instead (or perhaps in the end make a user-selectable list or something). Will look into it later :)

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
