As someone who owns a personal weather station (and can read) this is amazing. Exactly what I was looking for.

Glad you like it! And I have now made the requirement to get an API key even more obvious, as being displayed by the widget itself and having it at the top of the description wasn't clear to people that leave 1 star reviews!

Ryan McGowan

Doesn’t work. Nowhere on the website can you get a “API key” could you make this app more difficult to use?

Developer Reply
November 4, 2019, jim_m_58

It's clearly stated in a number of places that you must have a weather station that uploads data to Weather Underground to get an APIKEY. Their rules, not mine. While you make not be able to get a key, there's somewhere around 100,000 people that do, just in the US. Why give a bad review when it's clearly stated there's a requirement to get a key?

Seems silly to make a weather app that only works if you own a weather station.

Developer Reply
November 3, 2019, jim_m_58

You wouldn't say that if you had a weather station that sends update to weather underground. There are something like 100k personal weather stations that do that! If you don't fit the requirements, don't use it. There's no reason for a bad review if you don't have what's stated as required.

Jackson Parrill

You need to own a weather station to even get this to work

Developer Reply
October 25, 2019, jim_m_58

Yes, and that is stated in the very first line of the description. No need for a bad review. It also say that in the widget if you try to run it without a key.

This widget is great! I really like the lay out. Simple. Thanks, And keep up the great work.

Dear Jim, you made my day! I can see date of my own weather HOME station (located on our roof) clearly on display of my trusted Fenix 6X Saphirre! Very nice! Keep up the good work!

This is terrific, thanks. I love seeing my weather station info on my F6xpro. Like the developer says, you need an API key from a station that reports to WUnderground.

Awesome app. Have been chasing this exact integration with WU since they restored the API's. Works so well with my personal weather station. It appears a lot of people are struggling, if you're reading this, this will not work unless you have your OWN personal weather station in which to use it's data.

Too difficult to set up.

Developer Reply
September 21, 2019, jim_m_58

All you have to do is enter the APIkey using app settings. Is the issue that you can't get an APIkey?

Martin

Thanks for the Widget. Fine to see the data from my weatherstation on my vivoactive3.

Excellent widget. Works very well. Be careful that you use the new WU API key and you indicated the Sation ID name.

Doesn't work

Developer Reply
September 15, 2019, jim_m_58

Please use contact developer on the right and tell me what watch you have and what happens, as this really tells me nothing. Is it not working because you don't have an APIKEY for example?

Adam

Works with my PWS and Weather Underground account. Thanks.

Must own a weather station to get an API key. Weather stations are $400-1000 USD. Is there another option? I rent an apartment.

Developer Reply
August 19, 2019, jim_m_58

No. That's a condition and it's Weather Underground that requires that. It's clearly stated in the app description and also if you try to use the widget without a key. I have a similar widget for Open Weather Maps where you can get a key without a problem though: https://apps.garmin.com/en-US/apps/6a740b9d-7bba-4ed8-bedd-2cabaef4bdcf

Works perfectly if you follow the instructions to generate a new API code. Thanks!

Don’t have a PWS and from the responses believed the widget would work with my Marq Captain watch and my WU app account. Seems this is not the case. Like WU and would like it on my watch.

Developer Reply
July 24, 2019, jim_m_58

The change in getting an APIKEY was made by WU, and it's clearly stated for this widget. Not sure why you gave it a 1 star when you know you needed a key and weren't qualified to get one.

Teodor

Excellent. Works great with my PWS.

Weather underground has cancelled support for the widget. not supplying API for the widget. widget WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT API's do not waste your time and space.

Developer Reply
July 11, 2019, jim_m_58

Actually, they changed their API and interface and this widget makes use of the new one. See the description. As stated there, you can only get a new key if you have a PWS that sends data to WU, but it works fine if you have the new APIKEY.

Will not sync to watch. Useless!

Developer Reply
July 10, 2019, jim_m_58

If it won't connect to the watch, please "use "contact developer" at the right, and provide info such as which watch and FW, as well as what you see on the screen. It could be that you haven't set the APIKEY correctly or something, or could be an issue with the connection to your phone.

Do I need to have the Garmin Connect App open in order to have the widget update ?

Developer Reply
July 4, 2019, jim_m_58

Yes, as the app needs the internet to get to weather underground, so unless CGM is running, there's no way to get data. It should be OK if GCM is running in the background.

Your crap app broke my watch

Developer Reply
June 5, 2019, jim_m_58

Thanks for describing the problem you are having in such detail! /s Seriously, use contact developer, and ask for help if you are having an issue. Leaving a review like this helps no one. What exactly "broke" and which watch???

Alina Peter
May 11, 2019 | Version 3.03

Just downloaded but shows 'bad PWS' and no data. Though the PWS shows online on wu. Any idea?

Developer Reply
May 11, 2019, jim_m_58

Try removing the name of the weather station and then it will find the closest. What you are seeing can happen with a weather station that hasn't been sending data recently, or if there's a typo in the same. You can also press menu in the widget, and it will search for the closest..

Everything works fine with the new API-Key Charakter. The design is clear and pleasantly reduced. This App would be perfectly, if the Temperatur would correctly rounding up or rounding down. Thanks for your diligence.
