    Thanks for the clarification @NebbishHacker. While you both deserve credit, merging isn't quite the same as developing and presenting the concept, that credit earned.

    'any way of doing completely arbitrary API requests at the moment'

    @BobFrankston has made progress here, see #21 post.

  • Alas, not much headway on the weather part until I get simple connectivity. Working on it.

  • As @NebbishHacker says - right now you can't request weather from Gadgetbridge. It's possible we could work on a way to request it, but it may be that actually all Gadgetbridge would do in that case is push the last known weather info.

    I guess it might be possible to add some kind of universal on-Bangle storage for Gadgetbridge - so like is done for the weather app, but just irrespective of what app is installed

  • I guess it might be possible to add some kind of universal on-Bangle storage for Gadgetbridge

    That would make sense. You could store all kinds of stuff like weather info, music state and info etc.

  • Any way that I can contact gadgetbridge for the weather app? I am new to this watch and need as much help as I can get. Thank you, Hank

  • Hi Hank,

    you can start by reading the readme from the weather app³ itself:­ree/master/apps/weather

    It has also linked a guide how to setup the weather app² for GB:­etbridge/wiki/Weather

    To summarize:
    1) Install GB widget and weather app³ to the Bangle
    2) Install GB android app on your phone (via the F-Droid package, NOT the google play store version)
    3) Install the additional android weather app² (see second link above)
    4) Setup weather app² and GB on your phone correctly (see second link above)
    5) connect GB app to your Bangle

    Hope the helps to get started.

    foot notes:
    ² - the Android weather app on your phone
    ³ - the BangleJS weather app from the app loader

  • Was there ever a message devised to request updated/new weather from Gadgetbridge?

    I have been digging through documentation but haven't found any.
