About SkyHalo Weather Forecast Watch Face for Wear OS

SkyHalo is the ultimate weather and forecast watch face for all Wear OS watches (Galaxy, Moto 360, Fossil, etc.). Featuring 48-hour National Weather Service forecasts, alerts, rain and snow forecasts, wind, sunrise / sunset, moon phase / moonrise / moonset, and much more, it's the most weather information available in any watch face, in a beautiful and intuitive format.

Built off of an original idea by Simon Barke, we've made significant additions and improvements unavailable anywhere else.

NOTE: Most weather-based Wear OS watchfaces use DarkSky for their weather source. With DarkSky disappearing from Android in the 1st half of 2021, SkyHalo is protected from obsolescence by allowing you to choose from four alternate sources, with more on the way.

HOW IT WORKS:

The halos are read clockwise from the hour hand (the current time), and graphically present the following information:

-- Temperature: The width of the ring at any point represents the temperature forecast for that time: the thicker the ring, the warmer it will be.

-- Cloudiness: The color of that part of the ring represents the sky conditions, with yellow for sunny, gray for completely cloudy, or any shade in between for partial sun. Sunset and sunrise times are indicated by a violet tint.

-- Rain and snow: An outer halo will appear if precipitation is in the forecast: blue for rain, white for snow/sleet. The thickness of the outer ring indicates the intensity of the precipitation.

With no more than these three indicators you can glance at the ring and immediately see that it's cool and raining right now, but the sun should start coming out about 2:00pm with the temperatures topping out around 4:30pm, and sunset occurring at 6:15pm.

---------------------

Outside the weather rings is the moon, showing the current phase and location: if it's in the upper half of the watch face, then the moon is above the horizon (east on the left, west on the right). Tapping the moon pops up the exact times of moonrise and moonset.

---------------------

Current weather conditions are displayed in the lower half of the face. Tapping this area will cycle through three screens:

1. Temperature (current / high / low);
2. Wind speed (current / high / low); thickness of the ring represents wind speed, in a similar manner to the temperature. The wind direction is indicated by the ring's color (defined by the color key icon in the lower portion of the screen). Gust speed is indicated by an outer ring.
3. Precipitation (rain, snow, sleet)

If severe weather advisories have been issued, a red alert triangle will be displayed to the left of the current conditions (this is a feature that has never before been available on a weather watchface). Tapping it will bring up the detailed alert(s), including the severity, time, location, and any additional information.

---------------------

What's tomorrow's weather? If you tap to the right of the current conditions, the weather rings jump ahead to the next twelve hours, then twenty-four, then thirty-six.

If you prefer prose to graphics, tapping the watchface at the 12:00 position displays the National Weather Service (NWS) three-day weather forecast in descriptive format.

---------------------

-- Metric / Imperial units: C° / F°, kph/mph, et al.
-- Real / Apparent temperatures
