Battery Widget

Description

Display current battery level and discharge rate - for best results run this widget soon after or while charging, this is how the widget detects a new charge cycle.</p><p>Time since last charged is now displayed on round watches as well as VAHR - see additional info here: https://www.dsapptech.com/mybattery.html Time remaining will have a "d" for days or "h" for hours, i.e. 23d means 23 days remaining battery. Toggle through views by tapping or pressing the start button. The second view displays discharge rates, the third view displays days per charge. Also, check out my large font watch face MegaTime https://www.dsapptech.com/megatime.html and my multi-sport activity recording app DWatch https://www.dsapptech.com/dwatch.html</p>

2 questions on a fenix 5. I am not getting alerts. Also,Leaving the widget on the screen seems to stop updating at some point. 40 to 60% updated but it stopped even though the watched charged to 90%.

Hi, The app seems to be nice, but when the what itself shows it's fully charged to 100% the app only shows 96%. While charging both % values (clock and app) are the same Was already like this since before today`s update. I'm using a forerunner 235 in FW 8.00 Any hints? not a major issue, but would be nice to have the same reading :)

The widget displays what the watch reports, not sure what's going on note from Garmin: Some devices may report slightly less than 100% charge immediately after being removed from the charging cradle or cable. While the device is on the charger, the charger will disable itself after the battery charges to 100%. The battery will then very slowly discharge until it hits a hysteresis threshold, at which point the charger will reactivate. This is intentionally done to extend the life of the battery if the device is left on the charger for a long time. Garmin artificially locks the charge indicator on the charge page to 100% once the unit reaches full charge to mask this minor charge cycle fluctuation

Works fine for Fenix 6 Pro Solar. Please add Solar charge to the Widget. :-)

After I upgrade my VA4 firmware v3.8,the battery history data seems incorrect.Can you try to fix it? Thanks!

Hi. Will using this widget increase the battery consumption of the watch? Is there an impact?

No. It does not operate in the background.

Used and loved on other watches however on my Marq Aviator it is recording very weird numbers. 8.6%/hr is grossly wrong. Any ideas?

I had this widget crash the whole ConnectIQ on my VA3M(none of ConnectIQ stuff works) after a workout and I lost all data from that workout. And I am mad...

I'm sorry about that. What version were you running? I don't see any recent crash reports on a VA3M

nice app, but max is 97% on my brand-new foreathrete230j.

Awesome app! I mainly installed it so I could check that I was getting the advertised battery life on my new Venu, because I kept forgetting when I had last charged it. It works great for that, but I kept it because it's also great to have an at-a-glance display of how much longer the battery is expected to last. I think the layout could be reworked to be a bit cleaner on round watches, but functionally the widget does everything it needs.

Works very well. Keeps track of your battery usage with detail. Highly recommend.

Would be great to have an option to reset long term average and also to choose on what average the glance view prediction is based (long term vs last charge).

The latest version supports clearing the long term average history.

Not accurate, after 35 hours I have 91.1% battery left which according the app is 0.384% per hour discharge rate. Simple calculation gives actual discharge rate of 0.2543% approximately

Developer Reply

The discharge rate on the home screen is a long term average that is carried across charge cycles. That rate tends to be more accurate in predicting battery life than the current discharge rate. The details screen shows this long term rate as well as the rate during the current charge cycle and the rate since the widget was run previously.

The widget does not show fully on vivoactive. Time remaining and since last view are visible, but numbers aren’t.

Recently downloaded for my Vivoactive HR along with several others. This was the only one that has a highly visible indicator that the watch is charging when plugged into a USB charger (not PC). I had a problem with a cable that wouldn't always connect properly and needed something that showed the fact that it was actually charging properly. So far, this feature and all the others work as advertised.

Thank you for your feedback and I'm glad this helped. I also have a watchface that displays a charging banner. Search for MegaTime in store.

Very good tool: there seems to be a little bug though - a run today seems to have affected long term average which rose above average since last charged (yesterday), should‘ve affected the latter more

Can you send me more info? This works on the simulator, but there's nothing like an actual device to fix problems. email [email protected]

If you quickly press on the start/stop button multiple times you will see how your remaining time keeps increasing. I got mine up to 2.3 days from 40 hours. Looks buggy.

Developer Reply

When the current discharge rate is much greater than the current average, the average will change substantially; however, I modified that in v0.1.28 to be less sensitive. I updated the algorithm again in v0.1.29.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
