watch faces do not have that capability, please read faq q1 https://starttorun.info/data-lover

Very nice, however the weather update gets stuck each time after a garmin update. I habe to re-install it everytime this happens to overcome the issue. Please fix.

Have you tried forcing a connection by synchronizing the watch via garmin connect mobile?

Obviously the screen of a FR735 is too small for showing all the information. Location is cut and weather description collides with the date.

Developer Reply
January 16, 2020, peterdedecker

weather condition overwriting date will be fixed in the next version, as for the city not being able to be displayed fully that really depends on the length of the city that you're in :)

Localisation of on screen displayed texts is on my to do. It's unlikely that I will also translate settings as this increases maintenance whenever adding and changing settings. Cheers, Peter.

The move message occurs as of when you're 1 hour inactive, see the picture in the faq: https://starttorun.info/data-lover/

I just tried to your site (starttorun) and it says it is suspended?? What is size of donation? How to pay... What does it get me? I love my Garmin Finix 5X plus and your watch face is terrific. Than

Thanks for the report the website should be back online. The watch face is fully functional without donating (there is an occasional message to encourage donations, refreshing the weather info occurs at a slightly higher rate after donation). In case you want to donate you'll find donation instructions on my web page or on the app info page (click on the blue more... text to see the full description). Cheers, Peter.

Vivoactive 4 (First Avenger model). Watch FW changed from 3.60 to 3.80 and now Data Lover (paid version) weather no longer updates. Was very reliably updating every 15 minutes before, and I blame Garmin. Note First Avenger is on different FW than regular VA4 due to fancy Captain America graphics.... Keeping my 5 star review though because this is awesome watch face. Just letting developer know through public review this apparently needs attention.

non-LTE devices throttle internet traffic through Garmin Connect Mobile (see faq q1), I'm not sure whether LTE devices also have that requirement, let me know. :) Cheers, Peter.

I really like this watch face and want to use it, but am overwhelmed with how much has to be shown. Is there a way to have 'nothing' as an option for each part if you want it left blank?

Developer Reply

no that's not possible

I've been using this watch face for the last few weeks. I like it so much I have donated. Very configurable and practically everything you may want to see is there. The new watches have a few extra functions that I've not been able to pull through like body battery, hydration etc but this does not diminish the usefulness of the watch face.

Developer Reply

Thanks Pete. Unfortunately hydradtion, body battery, vo2max, etc... are all things not available to connect iq developers.

It’s a great but the weather shows an inaccurate location hundreds of miles away such as Boston instead of Miami. But my Garmin watch’s weather screen shows accurate weather information.

In connect iq custom fonts are as they are and are actually bitmaps, there's not a simple switch to make something bold. Cheers, Peter.

These are my thoughts how to make great Data Lover watch face greatest ever )) Weather forecast: 1) There is no need to poll server every hour as most weathermodels are recalculated once in 6-12 hours. Just query serverevery 6 or 12 hours and save hourly forecast for the next 72 hours.This way weather data will be shown for next few days evenwithout internet connection (for example, when going hiking). 2) Allow to choose between km/h, kt and m/s for wind speed. 3) Poll server when GPS coordinates have been changed significantly. Barometer: 1) The only 6 hour interval is very restrictive. Please, eitherallow to select from 6-12-24-48-72 hour intervals or allowto enter arbitrary amount of hours. 2) There is no need to show a decimal part of a pressure value expressed in hPa or mBar. Just round values to a nearest wholenumber. Additional time zone: 1) Add one more time zone and allow to show it on the screen in arbitrary field. It would be useful in high seas to display ship's time as a primary time together with UTC and time of port of arrival as additional time zones. 2) When UTC time (i.e. time zone 0) is shown in the field,use "UT" or "UTC" symbols instead of clock icon. Lat/Lon: 1) Allow entering Lat/Lon not only in decimal degrees format but also in degrees and decimal minutes. 2) Allow to specify East/West for Longitude instead of entering '-' or '+' sign. Lowest graph: 1) Allow to show there a battery level.

I've replied to your email in more detail, but in summary it always comes back to how much memory and cpu a certain feature uses. I have to be very critical to what I implement as there's very little memory left. Cheers, Peter.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
