Futura Weather 2 (Fahrenheit)


Modification of 'Roboto + Weather' by Martin Rosinski.

- Location-based weather information from Yahoo! Weather (updates every 15 minutes)
- Phone disconnection alert
- Stale weather information indicator
- 12h/24h support

Futura Weather 2 comes in separate Celsius/Fahrenheit versions. Also, there are three different variations to choose from:

- Standard: Phone link monitor + vibration alert
- No vibration alert: Works like the standard version except that it does not vibrate upon phone disconnections and also pings the phone less frequently
- No phone link monitor: This version does not check for phone disconnections at all, and thus does not ping the phone either

More info about features and functionality can be found here: http://github.com/Niknam/futura-weather

For the weather notifications to work you need to have an httpebble app installed on your device.

Android users:
Download and install "Pebble Connect" from Google Play:

iOS users:
Download and install "httpebble" from the App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/app/httpebble/id650174711?l=en&mt=8

The weather requests made from the previous versions of this watchface were funded straight from my own pocket. The monthly bills from the service provider were great blows to my student budget, to say the least ($430 for July only).

If you are enjoying Futura Weather, please consider donating the amount of your choice to cover the expenses I've had in the past. If I, by any chance, will receive more than I have spent, I will remove the donation link below and donate the surplus to charity. Thank you!
