Love the watch and donated for the work done. However, fighting with getting the weather to work is a headache. Never updates correct. I've went over the FAQ multiple times and tried on multiple phones.

I love this watchface I just have not been able to find out how to donate to be able to unlock the annoying msg telling me if I want to donate. There is no option to purchase or donate, I contacted the developer today May 21, 2019 and I’m waiting for an answer.

1. How to setup temperature by watch sensor not requires internet ? 2. Can move day and month to right chart?

So far i like it, but i dont see the option to see the weather. Tried googling, but cant figure it out.

most likely you have a Connect IQ v1 watch which can't connect to the internet from a watch face, see also Q5 on http://starttorun.info/data-lover/

Everything fine except temperature unit. Never shows Celsius even u change unit in my Forerunner 245 setting

Developer Reply
May 19, 2019, peterdedecker

the unit is actually cached to match the unit at the time it was read, in other words it should turn to celcius on the first succesfull next internet fetch if you switched the settings. cheers, Peter.

Brilliant Watchface. The only thing i don't like is that my Location is shown twice. ok first one complete and the second one half. is there a possibility to change that. I'm gonna donate anyway

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, peterdedecker

If you see the location twice in the line just under the temperature then this is how your city is transferred in the request from OpenWeather. I'm just taking over whichever values the OpenWeather API returns to me. Cheers, Peter.

I like this watch face!! However, the mail icon seems to be always there, even when there is no new email. How can this be arranged?

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, peterdedecker

The mail icon shows unread notifications on the watch. You can dismiss notifications by going to the Garmin native notification widget. (typically this widget is a few pages down from the clock face). Cheers, Peter.

Generally speaking, this watch face is great since it including the data I need. However, there is one issue with weather. All location settings are correct, with the correct name of city. But the temperature is 41 Fahrenheit. Never changed. I am not sure there is anyway to fix it. I have updated to latest version. Nothing changed.

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, peterdedecker

Did you pick the location through gps signal or through lat/lon in the settings? If the latter possibly there's a city named the same as your city in another part of the world, if the first it's either the data provided by openweathermap that's incorrect or stale data from older fetches (check q1 in the faq for the 4 requiremnents to update the weather). Cheers, Peter.

A message pops up "Like it Donate". Please advise how and where do I donate? Does this mean once donation is made, the message will disappear? Please advise. Thanks.

For Fenix 5x plus. Drain a battery per 3 days. With original face it works 12 days!

Developer Reply
May 12, 2019, peterdedecker

This is not normal. The only reason I can think of is that you did not do a gps activity during those 3 days? The date calculation will be recalled until there's a valid gps fix. Cheers, Peter.

Hope to have a option for choosing current location

Developer Reply
May 9, 2019, peterdedecker

You can set location in the app settings (see faq q12 on http://starttorun.info/data-lover) or have it be fetched from the most recent gps activity (eg start a run activity when you change location). Cheers, Peter.

How to switch temperature to Celsius?

Developer Reply

On your watch go to settings - system - units - temperature, choose celsius. Cheers, Peter.

Can you connect your watch with usb and browse to the folder Garmin - Apps - Logs, there will be a file called ciq_log.yml there which contains the crash info. Email that file to [email protected]

I’ve tried over 50 watch faces. This is the best by far. Love the sun gauge at the top. Handles weather perfectly. I set mine to always show weather at my house, but it can go off of current location.

Love it! But I wish seconds could be displayed.

Developer Reply

You can enable seconds in the app settings (see faq q12), but this is only possible on devices that support it (fenix 5 or newer). Cheers, Peter.

How to make weather and temperature more accurate? Mine stays 32C clearsky for days even the weather is rainy and 24C

Developer Reply
May 9, 2019, peterdedecker

The weather is delivered by an external provider (OpenWeatherMap) so the actual values are not within my control. What you can try is set a fixed location in the app settings with a lat/lon that's closer to another OpenWeatherMap station (you might need some trial and error to find the other weather station). Cheers, Peter.
