DIN Time for Fitbit Ionic now available!

DIN Time was originally created in 2015 for the Pebble Smartwatches and quickly became one of the most popular watch faces on the platform. Now you can enjoy DIN Time in even more colors, on the high resolution screen of the Fitbit Ionic!

DIN Time is a clean, glanceable, watch face with layout options for both left and right hand use. This means that the current time will always be the first you see when you pull up your sleeve.

Other features of DIN Time:

  • Fully customisable colors thanks to an RGB color selector. No less then 17 different parts of the watch face can be customized. That’s more that 205 million combinations 😜! (The free version is limited to setting the color of the background, hours and minutes. A one-time payment of $1.99 will unlock access to all color settings.)
  • Almost everything can be hidden, if you want an extra clean look.
  • Current weather and forecast (in the lower dashed weather box) with expected high and low temperatures for the day. Weather is provided by Yahoo or Dark Sky (requires API key). Temperatures can be shown in Celsius or Fahrenheit. The weather updates every 15 minutes.
  • Battery level.

More features and improvements are planned, which I hope will bring DIN Time for the Ionic closer to the Pebble original.

Pulse-R LED for Fitbit Ionic now available

Pulse-R LED for Fitbit Ionic

My first watch face, Pulse-R LED, for the Fitbit Ionic is now available in the Fitbit App Gallery.

Pulse-R LED is a retro inspired LED watch face that fits the design of the Fitbit Ionic perfectly.

Features in version 1.0 of Pulse-R include:

  •  Time, with blinking LEDs at the top indicating seconds: leftmost blinking LED for seconds 0-19, middle LED for seconds 20-39 and the rightmost for seconds 40-59.
  • By tapping the left part of the screen (hours) your total steps today will be displayed (indicated by a blinking S), another tap shows current heart-rate (blinking H). The next tap returns you to time display. I will probably add more stats in an update.
  • Tap the right part of the screen (minutes) to display the date in MMDD format.
  • Unlit LEDs in the background and a slight “red glass effect”.

Some ideas for version 1.1:

  • Change of how the top LEDs represent seconds, for more detail.
  • More stats.
  • Cool effects?

If you wonder what ever happened to DIN Time for the Fitbit Ionic all I can say is that it had to wait a bit, but it is up next!

DIN Time 2.64

DIN Time 2.64, available now, fixes a problem when trying to invert screen colors on Pebble 2. The wrong type of settings page was shown for this watch so the colors couldn’t be inverted. I’m sorry for the delay in fixing this! I’ve also fixed a small problem when displaying really cold temperatures, specifically -35 degrees.

MonDIN 1.5 – now with settings!

mondin15MonDIN 1.5, available now exclusively for the Pebble Time Round, adds settings page with options for seconds, date display colors and more.

The settings page use the new Pebble Clay config framework which allows the settings page to be offline, stored only on the phone.

MonDIN was initially created for my personal use when I first got the Pebble Time Round, in an attempt to mimic the Mondaine watches. It has seconds, date (in DIN Engschrift, of course) and Bluetooth disconnection warning with vibration and visual alert. And a discrete shadow under the hands, to give it a little depth.

DIN Time 2.60 adds health and more weather data

DINTime_260

Version 2.60 of DIN Time, available now, finally adds health data (on supported devices) to DIN Time, along with more weather data!

To see extended weather and health data you need to shake your watch, twice. Just like when you would activate the backlight by motion, if you have that option enabled. And then once more. You will then see a popup with lots of tiny icons and data! Please see the help screen in the settings page for more information about what the symbols and values represent.

I realize many of you would rather see their health data on the main screen, but that will have to wait until a later version.

Other changes in this version include:

  • Support for custom location (GPS free) when using Forecast.io. In plain text!
  •  No more woeid’s when using Yahoo! Just enter your location in plain text!
  • Fixed weather icon sometimes not switching to day version.
  • Added Russian and Czech languages.
  • Fixed problem with weather not being completely hideable on Round.

Also, as always, many thanks to @rozboris for his continued help with the settings page!

DIN Time 2.50 released with support for Forecast.io

DIN Time 2.50 is available now, and it finally allows for Forecast.io as an alternate weather provider. For this to work you need to register for a free personal API key on Forecast.io. Forecast.io will be a more accurate option for a lot of users, but requires the extra step of entering the API key in the settings page.

This version has also been optimized to reduce memory usage, in preparation for the next version, which will to add more weather and health data.

Yahoo changes its mind and celsius is working again

It looks like Yahoo decided to revert back to how its weather API worked before yesterdays change, but they broke something doing so. Temperature was only reported in Fahrenheit. A fix is out now for DIN Time, version 2.47, which converts the Fahrenheit reading to Celsius. We’re back to normal for a few weeks I guess, until Yahoo tries to do something again.

DIN Time 2.46 improves geolocation usage

DIN Time 2.46 includes improvements and changes to help ensure an uninterrupted geolocation service. DIN Time is too popular for its own good. With the large amount of DIN Time users we’re making too many geolocation requests per hour and risk blocking from Nominatim, the free geolocation service I’m using. DIN Time will now detect if you are in the same location as the last time the weather updated. If so, no new geolocation request is sent. Please note: If this change isn’t enough I will also need to limit the update frequency to every 60 minutes in the next version.
Also, another change in this version is if the GPS isn’t available and no woeid is entered, DIN Time will now use the location of the last successful weather update.

DIN Time 2.44 released

DIN Time 2.44 is now available with a fix for the geolocation issue! Thank you Freakified, author of the TimeStyle watch face for the solution!

Pebble users that are still using pre-timeline firmware unfortunately can’t enjoy this update. You’re stuck using a woeid. Or just update your watch.
