UV-Index

Beskrivning

UV-Index is a simple widget that displays the current UV-Index and it's daily maximum for any location. The widget makes use of GPS coordinates and retrieves the UV-Index using a web service provided by OpenUV Project (https://www.openuv.io). This API provides a convenient way to get the UV-Index including relevant corrections for ozone, cloud coverage and accurate altitude data.</p><p>.</p><p></p>

Nyheter

v1.2.3 Support for Venu and Vívoactive® 4 added</p><p>----</p><p>You can now check the UV-Index BEFORE you go outdoors. The position from your last outdoor activity with GPS is used to retrieve the UV-Index. To update position press START button (this invokes GPS). This is now the new default behaviour, to revert to old behaviour go to app settings and uncheck "Use last known position". Enjoy using UV-Index indoors!

Thank you very much. Would it be possible to add the time until sun burn based on skin type? based on this formula https://www.openuv.io/kb/skin-types-safe-exposure-time-calculation

I have a Fenix 5, UV simply will not work and says ‘waiting for GPS. I installed it from the Connect IQ store and updated but it still will not work. Can someone from Garmin please contact me to assist with my problem please. My watch is Unit ID 3976798522 Sofware Version 14.2 (9954772). GPS: 4.40 (!) CIQ: 3.0.1 BLE/ANT/SNS: 6.90 WHR: 20.03.31

As of now, the widget needs to retrieve a GPS signal - so you need to go outdoors.

Used to work, and I loved it. One of my top 3. Five stars for sure. But for some months right now it doesn't work any more. Just keep "waiting for GPS..." unfortunately. :-(

Sorry to hear that. Can you pl contact me with more details (watch, firmware, GCM android or iOS). The widget is working fine for me and all my known testers, however some people/devices seems to have issues. Hope we can figure out what‘s wrong in your case.

It would be great to remember last location and update it only on manual request. Or to have option to choose how. Looking up gps every time takes away from otherwise great and useful widget.

Thank for your great feedback and your suggestion. This is exactly where I want to go in future versions. But me time to work on this is currently very limited and it may take some time to get there.

Great App! If you could have an option to use "Last known position" and then a "update position" button that would be perfect!

I have a Garmin vivoactive 3 which is compatible with this app but for some reason I'm unable to use it because all it says is waiting for GPS then will just return to my watch face after a while

Hi. I have the Android version of that app purcased. Regarding this version for Garmin watch i guess is using the phone GPS instead the watch GPS. I tought that is acquiring the GPS position from the watch then use the data connection from the phone to get the UV index. But if not enable the phone GPS the index is never retrieved.

You only need the free Garmin Connect Mobile App (to establish an internet connection) for this widget to work. Any other purchase is optional and offered by other developers.

Nice app. The main think I'd add is to use last known position.

Tolle App, sowohl für die Garmin, als auch für`s Smartphone! Würde mich freuen, wenn auf der Garmin auch der Ozon Wert angezeigt werden könnte.

Thanks for your feedback. The ozone layer thichness is used by the app to calculate the UVI. It’s a major factor for the UVI and can cause changes by more than 20% from day to day with same weather and same location. However, this value has nothing to do with the ozon value measured at the eath surface In contrast to the ozon layer thickness I do not have high quality global data for ground level ozon.

Awesome app, and useful too!

Really useful! Only improvement would be some way of using the phone location or some way of speeding it up. Is the exact GPS location all that important? Like if it was retrieved in the last week use that?

Svar från utvecklaren
den 5 april 2018, laufschnauff

Thanks for your feedback. Location changes do matter and without getting your current position the widget doesn't know if it's the same as last week :) I'll think about options to make the widget faster while keeping its simplicity. Thanks again!

Works nicely. But would be much more useful as a data field.

Det finns tyvärr ingen statistik tillgänglig ännu.
