[Watch face] Roboto Weather [httpebble]

edited June 2013 in Pebble Watchapp Directory
Building on Katharine and Bobhwasatch's work, a mashup watchface showing the weather below an Android-style clock. Bonus feature: A phone link lost alert!

image

An installation of httpebble on iOS is required, currently limiting the availability of this watchface to developers.


Update 1.3:
 * Fix polling for weather
 * Automatically determine units (C/F) based on location

Update 1.4:
 * Never leave your phone behind again! Vibrates when phone link is lost, and displays a "No Phone" icon.

Update 1.5:
 * Refactored code for structure and reliability
 * Contains some debug codes which may appear occasionally, will be removed in next build
 * Short vibration on reconnection after link lost

Update 1.6:
 * Minor tweaks to visual appearance.
 * Hit my own server to offload Katharine. Working 15 minute refresh.
 * Debug codes should be rarer (still left some in for troubleshooting)

Update 1.7:
 * Reduced buffer sizes to 124 bytes (may fix Android crashes)
 * Changed vibration sequence on disconnect to the one used by Niknam's Futura-weather
 * Don't treat phone-side weather download problems as a watch link loss

    I'd love to have the weather in Fahrenheit. Could you post the source so I can edit?

    Hi, thanks for your version, it is great to have time in 24hrs format...
    But, as with the Katharine's design, weather is showing "N/A". Why ?
    I don't understand why.
  • DavidFishmanDavidFishman Posts: 60Member Pebbler
    Nicolas have you installed the accompanying iOS app?
  • MikeGuntherMikeGunther Posts: 31Member
    is there still an android app for?
  • NicolasLetarteNicolasLetarte Posts: 5Member Pebbler
    @ David, did you mean the "Pebble" app which is also the WatchFace manager ? Yes, of course.

    No there is another iOS app from Katherine that you need to install.  Currently this can only be done if you are a registered iOS developer.

    Compile and install this [ https://github.com/Katharine/httpebble-ios ] on your iPhone. You need to either have access to proper app provisioning for testing (i.e. be part of the official iOS developer program by paying $99/y; or being buddy with one who does) or jailbreak and fake-sign.

    This looks great, I look forward to a non developer (and android) version.
    I wish there was a way you could make money off these, I would gladly pay a small amount for a watch-face like this !

    Have had it running since yesterday, and the weather doesn't seem to update automatically. After switching to another face and back again, it reloaded properly from the Internet.

    Where did you get the watchband in that picture?
  • ZoneMRZoneMR Posts: 28Member
    @David - I've updated the watchface now to automatically infer the temperature units based on location. Hopefully this will work for most people. I'll also be releasing the source soon.

    @magu - there was indeed a bug upstream with the watchface not correctly polling for weather changes. This is fixed now.

    @Joe - It's a leather strap originally for the Junghans Mega 1000. I think it fits the pebble perfectly, and makes it look a bit more high-end.

    Can't wait for the Androidversion of this app! Looks fantastic!!

    Love the phone break icon, I know nothing about coding, but all this activity is making me think I need to pay that $99. Tell me, if I do so, can a novice like me simply download the .pbw file and install?

  • SylarSylar Posts: 253Member
    Can this be added to a jailbroken iPhone by any chance? If so, how? Thanks

    Majority of us iOS users can't have it either.

    Zone-MR Where did you get that great watch band on our pebble?
  • Jason02Jason02 Posts: 16Member
    Check the other thread. If you are jailbroken on ios, you can install with AppSync. The ios app is posted in the other thread.

    New version of the ipa keeps giving me the "lost connection" symbol as above. Katharines watchface works.

    How often is this weather updated?  Is it possible to change the refresh rate?  Thanks

  • ZoneMRZoneMR Posts: 28Member
    @Vincent The refresh interval is 30 minutes, although the next version to be reduced soon reduces this to 15 and also fixes a few connection glitches.

    @Jerry It's a leather strap originally for the Junghans Mega 1000 watch. Fits the Pebble perfectly.

    Zone-MR. I really like your Roboto Weather watch face. When will your app be aviable to non- devlopers like me.
