Finally got it to work, and it works like a charm. The native/vanilla Garmin weather widget never worked fine for me (I use iOS phone), had a constant error and was unable to check the weather on my Garmin Fénix 5S. I then decided to change to this widget made by the community.
Sure, the initial configuration is somewhat of a drawback, but as far as the widget goes, it works perfectly fine.
Don't mind the negative reviews, they are mostly from people who did not managed to configure the widget properly, but it neither the developer nor the widget fault, it's OpenWeather's.
I will give some steps on how I managed to configure the API key, should they be helpful to anyone:
1) Go to https://openweathermap.org/ and Register
2) Apply for a free API key.
3) Go to your email to confirm your email address.
4) You will receive an email with an API key.
5) Go to your Garmin Connect app and on the widget settings, set the API key.
6) Wait a while (may take up to some hours for the key to activate, but I only had to wait a few minutes)
7) Go outside where you have GPS coverage, turn off and on your device and sync for good measure.
8) The widget should now display correct values.

Running perfect on my Fenix 5. All what I need in one view. Many thanks.

This would be a 5 star app if we could just change the winds units. Would like to knots or kmph

Very good app , just how do we switch fahrenheit to celsius ?
Thanks for you reply.

Good app, it does what it needs to but I'd love to be able to change around the data fields. It would just make this widget a lot better

This tells me nothing. Use contact developer and tell me what device/firmware, and what you see when you try to use it.

Excellent tool. It presents all the weather info you can think of, and loads quickly.
One request: can we have the option to view Baro data as Inches of Mercury? Thanks!

Salve. Vorrei sapere perché fino a poco tempo fa ‘ la località era visualizzata correttamente. E da qualche giorno mi viene visualizzata come Globe. Grazie

This is a case where you should have used "contact developer" as here I have no idea what watch and what you've tried

Great app, works brilliantly. My only request is that I’d like to be able to change the units of wind speed from m/s to knots.

Works pretty good in Greece. Nice and helpful widget

Good idea collecting OWM info in a widget! Simpel setup and nice UI! Good work. Would be nice if it was possible to do a fast GPS update inside the widget.
2021년 2월 6일 (토) | 버전 0.18.8
This is a fantastic weather app, after loading the OWM APIkey and following the developer's instructions, no issues. It shows me everything I need to know before heading out the door. Excellent app!

Awesome app! Thank you. I'm not tech savvy by any means at all but worked it out no worries getting an API key by following your instructions & link provided, only thing I couldn't figure out was changing the temp from F to C, but again I read your reviews hoping someone else had already asked & voila, found your reply to their Q & I am now one happy camper!! Cheers :D

Amazing app, way better than the stock one. So sorry about the 1 start reviews from people who can't read or comprehend lol

Super widget! Is it possible to receive weather updates without the use of your smartphone when the watch has its own Wifi connection like the fenix 6 pro?
2020년 12월 21일 (월), jim_m_58
Wifi can be used on some devices (like an edge), but it will only be used if wifi is already connected. On an Edge, it will try to connect wifi if there isn't an activity being recorded.

it's perfect and very useful application, I use it every day. Maybe one point to improve: to add new character sets, for instance location Hlavní město Praha is showned as Hlavn m sto Praha (in En it's Capital city Prague)

Localizzazione errata. Vivo a Milano, ma il meteo è riferito a Globe. Come risolvere la cosa? Grazie

I keep getting “no phone”. What is the issue? Using a Fenix 6 pro and it is connected to my phone.
2020년 10월 7일 (수), jim_m_58
It needs to be connected to your phone when it requests the data, which by default is every 15 minutes. Keep near your phone for the next 20 minutes or so,
You do have a proper API Key set, correct?
2020년 9월 29일 (화) | 버전 0.18.4
After trying a number of other apps, this is the only one that gave me everything I was after. Also good that the API key is from OWM rather than having to have your own personal weather station registered.
1. Many of the questions I had were answered in the reviews but it would be good to have this info in the app info (eg near h snd near l, rain info, location in nearby town)
2. The on screen data is quite small (for my failing eyesight). It would be good if there was an ability to make the data size bigger and possibly be spread across more screens.

I’ve looked high and low for good weather app; and I think this one’s it. However, I hate to be that guy, but does anyone know how to change it to Centigrade?
2020년 9월 17일 (목), jim_m_58
That's based on the units setting on your watch.
It's in settings-system-units-temperature units. You won't see the change until the next time the weather is requested.
2020년 9월 13일 (일) | 버전 0.18.3
My actual problem is. Im from santiago, cl and the app show me forecast from el rosal,cl how i fix this ?
2020년 9월 14일 (월), jim_m_58
That's probably just the closest location where OWN can get weather from. For me, the closest one is the next town over from me. (I'm near Phoenix,Az,US)

On my vivoactive 4 it's says no api key what does this mean please
2020년 8월 30일 (일), jim_m_58
The API Key tells Open Weather Map who you are. It's 32 characters long.
See the description for the widget and there are instructions on how to get an API Key. Basically you need to create an account (it's free) on the Open Weather Map site.
