Please read the first line of the description. This widget needs an API key from Weather Underground, and in of May this year, WU stopped issuing them. Unless you already have a key, this widget won't work. Don't bother downloading it if you don't have a key already.

It works flawlessly, also in germany, if you already have an APIKEY from Weather Underground. I really can't understand the bad reviews. The widget is for free and the description says clearly that you need an APIKEY. I also came from the pebble smartwatch and my key works fine. :) To the developer: really great work - thank you! Please don't be discouraged by the bad reviews and continue. :)

See the very first line in the App Info.. API keys are no longer available.

I would give it a 5 but with my existing API key that has still works with my Pebble always says my local data source is offline but then i go to my Pebble and it updates right away oh and my watch is a Vivoactive 3 thanks.

Developer Reply

Offline indicates the weather station hasn't sent data over a period of time or there is a typo in it's name. Are you sure you're trying to get data from the same weather station on the pebble? In the widget, the station name id displayed at the top of the screen. You can also see the name in settings. (The current station)

Let me more harsh, because my honesty cannot be rated with one star ratings. You, who gives one star, are either moron or just functional analohabetic. I respect Jim for his patience towards those who are chasing for tools for free and nagging if they find something too late.

No free api anymore. Don,t waste time to download

Developer Reply
June 8, 2018, jim_m_58

That is correct, today you can't get a key, but it's still working if you have a key. Sorry, but there is no reason to give this a poor rating for something outside the control of the developer. It's still working for many. The first line of the description says in brief, "If you don't already have a key, do not download this". You shouldn't have even tried.

This isn't Darksky. My darksky apps are no longer in the store. If you got a IQ! error, please use "contact developer, with things like what was happening when it occured.

Works great. I have a weather station in my backyard syncing to Weather Underground and I had no problem getting an API key. Now I can see the data in near real-time on my wrist. I'm running it on a Fenix3 HR. It wasn't obvious in the description of the widget, but if you long-press the up key you can get the option to find the local weather station (based on GPS) or your "home" weather station. Nice feature, but not obvious (to me, at least).

Glad you like it! I too have a WS, and wanted to see the weather in my backyard, and that's why I built it! As far as the long press, I should make that better known! I keep my home station as "home", and yet can easily see what the weather is when I travel, and easily see what's happening in my own back yard!

If you follow the instructions to get your API Key, it works great. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is that as far as I've been able to find, there doesn't seem to be any kind of "forecast" information. It shows current info based on whichever station it connects to, but doesn't show you even simple forecast info like high/low temp and rain chances. If that were there, it'd be a 5 star no question!

Developer Reply
March 10, 2018, jim_m_58

The thing is, forecast data is a separate request (and returns a bunch of data), and with some of the devices I support, it wouldn't work memory wise. I look at doing a second widget with the forecast on devices I can that would allow it

When attempting to get the API code from WU I get an error code on the WU website Oops! There's been a glitch Error Code: 10.226.239.79

Developer Reply
March 2, 2018, jim_m_58

That's on the Weather Underground website. I have no connection to Weather Underground (other than getting data), but I do know others have been able to get a key in the last day or two.

Easy to download but not functioning on my watch (vivoactive 3). Did as suggested in your instructions to obtain a "API Key" but ended up with a non-functioning web page/site and no API Key in sight! PS

Please use 'Contact Developer" and let me know the watch you have, wand what happens when you run it. Is the an error message and if so what is it?

Works great on my VivoActive 3. Really like that it lets you pick a specific weather station if you want.

I have to open and leave the Garmin Connect app running in order to view widget on my Fenix 5x. I may be doing something wrong but I like this widget bedsides that.

Developer Reply
December 26, 2017, jim_m_58

Do you have an iPhone? if so, this is due to how the watches communicate with Garmin Connect Mobile. All CIQ watch apps that use the internet would be the same.

Once you have an account, you need to get your key on the same website. See my facebook page for screen shots with the steps: http://facebook.com/connectiqaz

Works great with patience and a learning curve. Weather Underground site is wonky regarding verifying your email after joining. Click the email verify link and chill out for 15 minutes before trying to get an API code. Cut/Paste API code into app box. Go back to WU website and let it have your location to search for closest data station. Copy/Paste the station code into the app. Entering my city name did not work for me, as my city has numerous stations. DO NOT TURN ON "Always Get Location" if you are inside and cannot connect link to GPS. Pressing start button in the widget switches me from main data screen to sunrise/sunset screen, and description "waning gibbons" moon, whatever the frack that is. :^) Hope this helps.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
