An excellent widget. Very well made, works well and doesn't seem to negatively affect my watch battery life. Recommended.

Application très utile, qui permet de réagir afin de protéger sa peau des dégâts causés par le soleil, vraiment très bien !!

A simple, accurate UV indexing tool. Brilliant :)

Does not work on Venu after update.

Works perfect in simulator. If you expect help, kindly contact me with more details instead of leaving an unspecific 1-star-review. If you want me to respond, please also ensure you add your e-mail when clicking the "Contact Developer" link.

Simply does not work on vivoactive 4 after the update

Sorry to hear that. Can you pl contact me with more details. I can't see any issue with CIQ Simulator for vivoactive 4.

Very simple app, works even without phone location turned ON. I'd love if there was a datafield that could be dropped into workout screens.

Stopped working on Fenix 3... Loved it, but now relying on Garmin app... Would love to know how to fix

Sorry, V1.2.7 broke support for Fenix3, please upgrade to V1.2.8

I really don't understand why my Fenix 6S Pro shows 3.9 UV-index and 12.8 UV-index Max while my other watch Vivoactive 4 shows 4.3 UV-index and 5.0 UV-index Max. Those values can't be trusted! What's wrong with this widget?!

Developer Reply

Issue should be fixed with V1.2.7

Bogdan

Probably it does what is says but it is laggy and boring. At least some minimum design is needed.

Keyvan

Also this widget uses too much battery, please also fix.

Keyvan
December 4, 2020 | Version v1.2.6

Everytime you use the workout applications or connect to PC, the widget has to find GPS again, please update a fix for this, so that the cache doesn't get cleared unless you manually update to new GPS location.

Seems great. Would you mind adding details on whether this app connects to the internet in the background during activities? I’d like a setting only to retrieve the UV index manually to save on battery

Developer Reply

There is no background activity. Internet access is done only once (and manually) when you launch the widget. Thus impact on battery is zero when you don’t open the widget.

Great simple item that does what it says on the tin. Is it possible to make a data field version so I could have the UV index showing (and updating) on my Edge while riding?

Timo

Without a doubt my favourite widget! I'd seriously be lost without it on the golf course – I'm getting my Vitamin D until "UV-Index" tells me it's over three... then it's sunscreen time.

Pls add Edge 830 :)

Works flawlessly on my Fenix 3HR. Quick acquisition of both the uv index and GPS. Highly recommended.

Venu: keep display waiting for gps

Developer Reply

Probably the location cache got cleared (e.g. after firmware upgrade). Try going outdoors and get a GPS fix once, afterwards it should also work indoors.

Crashed my Fenix 5 Plus so badly. Can't get it off my watch, despite uninstalling. Reinstalled to write a review. Don't go near. Appreciate the developer goes to a lot of trouble - but this is more trouble than it's worth. [email protected]

Sorry to hear that. Can you pl contact me with more details on how to reproduce this crash. The widget is working fine for me and all my known testers, however some people/devices seems to have issues. Hope we can figure out what‘s wrong in your case.

Thanks a lot for confirming that the widget works fine on firmware 9.0 (Fenix 6).

Läuft seit Software Version 9.0 von Garmin nicht mehr leider. Hoffe das wird schnell behoben.
