January 20, 2019 | Version v1.1.15-upd6
I have a Garmin vivoactive 3 which is compatible with this app but for some reason I'm unable to use it because all it says is waiting for GPS then will just return to my watch face after a while

Hi. I have the Android version of that app purcased. Regarding this version for Garmin watch i guess is using the phone GPS instead the watch GPS. I tought that is acquiring the GPS position from the watch then use the data connection from the phone to get the UV index. But if not enable the phone GPS the index is never retrieved.

You only need the free Garmin Connect Mobile App (to establish an internet connection) for this widget to work. Any other purchase is optional and offered by other developers.

Funciona de maravilla!

Nice app. The main think I'd add is to use last known position.

Tolle App, sowohl für die Garmin, als auch für`s Smartphone! Würde mich freuen, wenn auf der Garmin auch der Ozon Wert angezeigt werden könnte.

Thanks for your feedback. The ozone layer thichness is used by the app to calculate the UVI. It’s a major factor for the UVI and can cause changes by more than 20% from day to day with same weather and same location. However, this value has nothing to do with the ozon value measured at the eath surface In contrast to the ozon layer thickness I do not have high quality global data for ground level ozon.

Awesome app, and useful too!

Really useful! Only improvement would be some way of using the phone location or some way of speeding it up. Is the exact GPS location all that important? Like if it was retrieved in the last week use that?

Thanks for your feedback. Location changes do matter and without getting your current position the widget doesn't know if it's the same as last week :)
I'll think about options to make the widget faster while keeping its simplicity. Thanks again!

Works nicely. But would be much more useful as a data field.

Agree with another review that says forever retrieving UV index but never shows data. Not very helpful to just say 'need a GPS fix' without providing any additional information on how to do that. Vivoactive3

I have uploaded a new version with improved start-up and error messages to make it more transparent that you need to wait for GPS until UV-data are read/calculated. As of now, there is no caching - so you need to go outdoors.

You need a GPS fix to get rid of this message

Please contact me directly with more details. Which firmware version do you use?
June 28, 2017 | Version 1.1.10
Lazy database update, garmin forerunner 235
June 20, 2017 | Version 1.1.10
Installed on 6/20/17 and made sure my watch was up to date and the widget would not work on my vivoactive HR.

I have positive feedback from several users who are using my widget on a daily basis on a vivoactive HR device . Please contact me directly and I'm sure we'll sort out your issues.

Jetzt perfekt - sowohl auf der Chronos als auch auf der Fenix 5x.
Vielen Dank für das superschnelle Update !!
April 19, 2017 | Version 1.1.8
Perfekt auf der Fenix 5x.
Auf der Fenix Chronos mit der aktuellen 5.80 laufen die Buchstaben ineinander.

Very good idea for aoo. Works great on Fenix 5. If I may suggest - it would be useful to show measurement on the colorful scale (green, yellow, orange, red...) - to make it easier to interprete (using scale described here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultraviolet_index)

The widget has settings (use Smartphone app or Garmin Express). There you can enable colors for the values as per UVI scale. Thanks for your feeback!
March 17, 2017 | Version 1.0.3
Works fine on Fenix Chronos now - thank you !!
March 9, 2017 | Version 1.0.0
Simple, yet useful widget showing the current UV-Index and the maximum UV-Index for the current location. Although it takes some seconds for the widget to get the GPS fix and read the additionally needed information from the Web, it is much faster than starting an app on the phone ...
I like it!
