    Love DIN Time – quick question. I only see the barometric pressure arrow on the main face when I use the Yahoo weather provider. If I use Dark Sky, it goes away. This seems like useful info, and Dark Sky seems more accurate, so would be nice to have on the face when using Dark Sky. Thanks for your hard work on what has become the only face I use now.

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      The reason the trend arrow is only available when using Yahoo is because they provide the data for it. If I were to implement it with Dark Sky I would first have to figure out the correct algorithm for it (it’s only called “rising” when it’s a certain amount of rise within a specific time period), and then for the calculation to be correct I would need to have three or more historic data points equally and suitably spaced. If one is missing (perhaps due to connection errors) the calculation would be wrong. So all in all it was a little to much work and error checking of the data for it to be worth the trouble. But I’m glad you like the little arrow, most people don’t see the use for it.

    When I have an event Window (time line) showing at the 1/4 bottom, it covers the minutes digits. Do you plan to fix it? It’s the only feature stopping the purchase of your awesome watch face!

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      I have had plans to fix it, but when the Pebble watches were cancelled I stopped working on it. But perhaps I will continue…

    Hello,
    What is the scale for the wind in the health popup? Is it based on the Beaufort scale?
    Also what it the dotted line just below the sunrise and sunset hours?
    Thanks.

    This is excellent, I’ve bought it.

    The only request I have is that the number of steps this hour is visible in the stats. No standard watchface has it. Perhaps as an option to replace the calories field, I have no use for that.

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      Thank you! Unfortunately there isn’t a way to access the official steps per hour data (the one that is shown in the Today app and on the phone). It’s also not practical to track the steps in the background in DIN Time as it can get shut down by the system without notice and then it won’t be correct anyway. Only thing possible is to keep track how many steps has been taken since you last looked at DIN Time and then divide that by how long time has passed. But that wont be same as the other data.

      • John Cooper says:

        Thanks for the reply. I’m finding Fitbits attitude to making data available very frustrating. Too much is hidden, I’d love to export steps to TCX but again that is just not available

    Hi.
    One question about the weather data. By a fulltime bar, the data is new however, that is not visseble on my Ionic.

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      Tap the stats section to view more weather information. The bar, if the data is recent, will be visible in the top weather box.

    I choose the sunflower face and my weather won’t load. I did the recommended steps from the previous post about connection issues. The weather app is working on the watch, but it’s not showing on the face.

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      There are currently problems with the default weather provider for DIN Time, Yahoo. They aren’t returning any weather data since a few hours. The Fitbit weather app use a different weather provider and apps/watch faces don’t have access to that data.

    Great design!
    I chose “orange focus” as my theme. But now I’m unable to change to another theme, or change anything else.
    Works and looks great besides that!

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      Thanks! It’s probably “one of those” connection problems that can happen. Try quitting DIN Time on your watch by starting any other app, such as the weather or alarms. While you do that force quit the Fitbit app on your phone. Restart it, then go back to DIN Time. After that open the settings again and you should be able to change the theme.

  9. Daniel R says:

    Really great design and features!

    One issue I’m having on Versa is the seconds toggle doesn’t keep the feature off; I have to toggle it off/on/off and then it goes away, but when the Versa goes to standby (display off) the seconds reappear when the display turns on.

    Kind of a weird bug. Running latest Android app and Versa FW.

    I love this watch face! My favorite by far! One question though, when you make you own themes and have the saved can you edit/delete them? I think it would be awesome if there was a way to preview the face or even see it as you are building it, is that something you may have in the works for a future update?

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      Thank you! If you load one of the saved themes you can make changes and save it again to the same or another slot. You can’t delete saved private themes, but you can overwrite them with a new name. As for previewing, you’re already seeing all the changes on the watch. But if you want to build an entire color theme without affecting the theme on the watch it can’t be done. It isn’t technically possible to display a preview, i.e. an image of the watch face, in the settings page that changes color as you create your theme. The tools we developers have to create settings pages for the Fitbit watches are very limited I’m afraid.

  11. Mike says:

    I bought DIN Time but the recent update has reverted it to a trial status. Obviously tapping the stats section doesn’t bring up the buy link during the trial, so is there any way I can re-sync my purchase or do I have to wait for the trial to expire? Cheers!

  12. Meghan Clukey says:

    All the sudden my face will not display any of my weather data, steps, stairs, distance walked, active minutes, calories burned or heart rate. It is completely blank besides the time. Watch and phone are synced because when I go into the actual activity portion of the watch all my data is there. Why is this happening?
