Weather

Some bands (Amazfit Bip, Mi Band 3, Mi Band 4) support a weather function to show current weather/temperature at your location and forecast for the following days.

Gadgetbridge offers support for this without requiring the INTERNET permission for itself, so it needsthe help of a weather provider on your Android device – which is provided by the “Weather notification” app available at F-Droid. Alternatively, if you are using CyanogenMod/LineageOS ROM, a weather provider is already installed in your system.

Install and configure “Weather notification”

Look for “Weather notification” in F-droid or download it from F-droid website. You must enable the Gadgetbridge skin in the “Weather notification” app → start the app, and flip the Gadgetbridge skin switch as shown in the screenshot. Also make sure that you have the „Enable Notification“ switch enabled. Set the location as desired and feel free to adjust the other settings (some of them apply only for Pebble watches, and don’t affect the Amazefit Bip/MiBands).
