Fantastic Watchface! For some reason it shows the wrong date. It is one day behind. The date on the watch itself and on the other WF is right.

Developer Reply
September 10, 2018, peterdedecker

The date info is cached (and normally it should be fetched when there's a new day), you can force a refresh of the date info by changing the date format from day-month to month-day (or the other way around) in the app settings. Cheers, Peter.

Nice watch face, well done. Only the weather details are not accurate. On the watch (fenix 5) the temperature is 17, on Yahoo webpage it is 23. Changed the settings to display city which was correct. Also last update was very recent (3 min ago). Forecast also differs from Yahoo webpage.

Developer Reply
September 10, 2018, peterdedecker

The weather source yahoo exposes to developers ( https://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ ) might update at another frequency than the yahoo webpage. Cheers, Peter.

sorry may i have question about your unit of pressure ? i select graph pressure 6 hrs. why my garmin show 1007 and 1011 ? what does it mean ?

Developer Reply
September 7, 2018, peterdedecker

The unit of pressure used is hectopascal / millibar. The 2 numbers on top of the graph show the minimum and maximum value during this range of 6 hours. Cheers, Peter.

Hi, this WF is great. Thank you for it. Unfortunately I am not able find weather in the right chart. In option is only move. By other chart as well. I have Fenix3 HR. Thank you for your reply Jarda

Developer Reply
September 6, 2018, peterdedecker

Thanks. Internet connection is not possible on connect iq 1 devices, so weather cannot be provided on your device (see also faq q5 on http://starttorun.info/data-lover ) Cheers, Peter.

Would've been great if not this "occasional" ad displaying in the middle of the watch face. It's very annoying.

Developer Reply
September 2, 2018, peterdedecker

Thanks for your feedback Piotr. I did not want to limit the functionality of the watch face in order to force people to unlock. Personally I think a donation encouragement message in the smallest text possible occurring only twice per hour is not often at all and perfectly possible to ignore. (I wear the face often without donation key active and I hardly notice the message). Cheers, Peter.

Best of the bests! Until I tried 20 different WF. Some of them suffered with lack of data or were based on very strange layout. This WF is both crispy clear layout and loaded with tons of information. :) Thanks a lot! Note: Coudl you add somewhere week number?

Developer Reply
September 2, 2018, peterdedecker

Thanks Stan. Adding week number is already on my to do, it probably won't be present in the next update, but it'll likely be in the one after that (no promises though). Cheers, Peter.

Any chance in getting sleep tracking chart instead of step tracking?

Developer Reply
September 2, 2018, peterdedecker

Sleep tracking isn't exposed to the Garmin Connect IQ layer, so I would have to come up with my own algorithm which would probably not match with what you would see in Garmin Connect Mobile. Cheers, Peter.

Very nice watch face, but I cannot say that I trust the weather yet. It tells me the correct city, but the temperature is way off and the forecast is nowhere close to what Yahoo actually tells me. When I look at the time of least fetch it is not really that old, maybe only an hour but even then the temperature at the time of fetch was delicately not what it is telling me. Any ideas? I just unissued and reinstalled and the weather looks more accurate at least for now. I'm just worried that it is not going to stay that way.

Developer Reply
August 29, 2018, peterdedecker

The status will be red when the last fetch was unsuccessful. The watch face also contains a debug option, see the bottom of the article http://starttorun.info/data-lover/ on how to set this up. It will give you detailed info of whether the watch face was able to retrieve info from YAHOO! and what info was retrieved. Cheers, Peter.

So since the update either your 5.0 or the Garmin update my GPS is way off majority of the time for location for weather. Any way for it to default to the inputed lat and long instead of trying GPS then the lat long I put in?

Developer Reply
August 29, 2018, peterdedecker

The latitude/longitude in the settings is used as a backup location only, when you do a gps activity (eg run) it will take this new location as preferred location. In case the location does not match the location of your last gps activity set up a debug session (see http://starttorun.info/data-lover) to find out details. Cheers, Peter.

Developer Reply

Thanks. It's not impossible, but adding more configuration and code reduces the available memory. Memory of which there's very little left (less than 2k). I'll add the suggestion to my to check list. Cheers, Peter.
