Watchface: Data Lover

    I'm just trying Data Lover. It shows everything I want. But like several other watchfaces it makes my FR 235 a bit slower. And I'm wondering why battery percentage went from 100% (while charging with my computer) to 96%, after one hour it showed 92%. A little bit irritating: days with goal reached are blue, with goal missed green. I would like the opposite. Goal reached green, goal missed blue (or red, there is no big difference between the colors when you look at it in darker environment).

      The 23x/630 are a bit odd when they show battery level. When charging, you see it get to 100%, but with any CIQ watchfaces, it will show 97% or so the second you unplug. That's been a known issue with these devices since the day they came out, and actually has nothing to do with the watchface itself. There have been a number of theories about why this is the case, like the HW reports the level when charging, but at other times, the FW uses the voltage to determine the level, etc.

      If you look back to some of the early posts in the 23x devices forums, you'll see this mentioned quite often.

        my girlfriend outed the same opinion about switching the blue/green colors so I've tried that look but I like it better how it is now. You can customize the colors in the application settings. This thread explains how to modify settings:

          Do you see any way to further improve battery usage? I love your watchface, but it takes an additional 5% per day, compared to other watchfaces. Off course, this is likely due to updating that often. Could you make the graph optionally?

            I have a 235, so I don't have weather forecast, only the bar for sunrise/sunset. Does that effect the battery usage? Obviously the times for sunrise/sunset don't get updated. Today I see the same times as yesterday! I that a bug or does it only work if I donate? I would like to do that but I don't have PayPal...

              What is line graph color? The today's steps progress? I changed the color from theme default to dark blue but I still see a green bar. Nowhere else a dark blue bar or line.

                times for sunset/sunrise are updated once a day, the procedure to set the correct location you also need to get a good gps fix towards the watch face:
                • the gps location is only known for a very short period in watch faces (only shortly after doing a gps activity). To let the watchface acquire your location do the following: start a gps activity (eg run) and wait till you have acquired a good gps signal. stop the activity and go back to the watchface.
                You should be able to force a recalculation of the sunrise by uninstalling/reinstalling the watch face just after getting a proper gps fix.

                I'll add both items as entries to the faq.

                The line graph color is for the current active heart rate chart (which is not available on connect iq 1 devices) and the future planned historic heart rate chart, so at the moment changing that option won't make a difference on your device.

                to reduce battery consumption use items that are not updating while in low power mode:
                - no seconds
                - no heart rate
                - use the steps history chart instead of the active heart rate chart

                Computations and data are already being cached, but it's planned to further review the code to implement possible optimizations (but I also still want to add features and I also have a few other apps to maintain, so it's not so much of a matter of if I'll do it, but more of a matter of when I'll do it )

                  I ran a half marathon last Friday so the watch should have GPS data. After installing the watchface yesterday I switched off the watch at midnight (because of that battery problem) for a short time. Then I went to the window for a GPS fix because of correct time although it seemed to be correct. After lunch I went outside the house and started pre start mode again (that screen where you can choose activity or menu) until GPS was found. GPS full signal, phone connected. Sun event times haven't changed yet. The only thing I saw was the next donation message... Do I have to do a whole run to have "long enough" GPS? Not only that half minute at pre start mode?

                  About battery usage: I have a FR 235 so I don't have seconds, heart rate (although it's built in) and heart rate chart (steps history is what I want).

                    you don't need to do an activity, getting a "green" good gps signal fix should be sufficient.

                      I'll wait if there will be a change at the sun event times. As I mentioned I had a green GPS a few hours ago.

                        Now I reinstalled the watchface. Sun event is updated But I don't think that it is a solution to reinstall it every day...

                          that's not necessary normally
                          the last gps location is cached in the watch face, so if you stay in the same location the timings should be correct from now on...

                          the shutdown you do at night shouldn't clear the cache normally i think...

                            I will see if the times will change tomorrow.

                              My sunrise/sunset times are accurate and based on my current location. However, the bar at the top is not reflecting the times (see photo) and is missing the sunset time altogether. Any ideas? Thanks.

                                yeah the fenix doesn't like the yellow I assign to it apparently, in the next version the color for the day will be customizable.
