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.

Jimmy Jeenjiu

Looks great and simple to customise. Question:0How do you change the temperature to degree Celsius?

2020/01/16, peterdedecker

see faq q13


Love this app and would give it a five star if I could change the temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius

2020/01/16, peterdedecker

Alexander Cameron

It’s good but the location displayed is wrong and I can’t correct it.

2020/01/16, peterdedecker

see faq q1 & q2

Carmen Frisch

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

2020/01/16, 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 :)


Un bel quadrante , peccato che le impostazioni siano solo in inglese e non riesca a modificarle come voglio

2020/01/16, peterdedecker

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.


Very good watch face with all the information I need, highly recommended. If the weather update more frequent that'll be great.

Sehr informative Darstellung aller möglichen Datenfelder. Sehr variabel von den Einstellungsmöglichkeiten der Datenfelder und der Farbe. Einzig die Anzeige „Move!“ ist mir nicht erklärbar.

2020/01/16, peterdedecker

The move message occurs as of when you're 1 hour inactive, see the picture in the faq:


Please translate it to spanish! I love this watchface!!

2020/01/16, peterdedecker

localisation is on my to do

Wayne Fingas

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

2020/01/08, peterdedecker

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.

2020/01/08, peterdedecker

issue was resolved by doing an uninstall / reinstall of data lover


I really like this face, but my location is not updating. Please advise.

2020/01/08, peterdedecker

follow the instructions in faq q1

Eckhart Südecum

Super. ;-)

2020/01/08, peterdedecker

Thanks :)

Logan Cleary

Works great. Will the weather be updated on a cellular enabled vivoactive 3 when it isn’t connected to the phone?

2020/01/05, peterdedecker

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?

2020/01/04, peterdedecker

no that's not possible

Pete the Geek

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.

2020/01/04, peterdedecker

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

Timothy Riker

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.

2020/01/04, peterdedecker

see faq q11

Alex Tobin

How do I get the weather to display on the watch face?

Neil Cummins

Excellent app, only issue I have is there doesn’t seem to be 12/24hr option.

2020/01/02, peterdedecker

the watch face follows your watch settings. Go to system - settings on your watch. Cheers, Peter.


Vert good watchface. French would need to be added (date), so it could be perfect

2020/01/02, peterdedecker

localisation is on my to do.


Hope you change the font to BOLD font.

2020/01/02, peterdedecker

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.


Super!!! Very good job!!!

2020/01/02, peterdedecker

Thanks Vadmin!

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.

Milt MacFarlane

Wait for 4 hours till location updates, unless we pay, pathetic

2020/01/02, peterdedecker

I'm sorry to disappoint you. Cheers, Peter.
