To use the application, you must create an API Key in the AmbientWeather dashboard. Follow the steps below to setup your JWeatherWatch app

  1. Install the JWeatherWatch app on your Watch
  2. When you launch the app for the first time, it will ask for your API key
  3. Using your phone paired with your watch, open Safari and go to https://ambientweather.net/account (login if required)
    Note: DO NOT USE the Ambient Weather app! You must use Safari to be able to copy the API key!
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Create API Key button
  5. The new API key will appear in the list of API keys. Copy the key to the clipboard (press and hold on the key and tap Copy)
  6. Return to the JWeatherWatch app and tap the API key text field
  7. You will see multiple ways to input text, select the keyboard option
  8. On your phone, you will get prompted to enter text for your watch, tap the notification
  9. Tap and hold on the text area and press Paste to paste the API key. Press the return button
    Note: There is a bug in iOS 15 and WatchOS 8 which sometimes prevents the paste option from appearing. Unfortunately in this case you will have to manually enter the API key
  10. The API key will appear on the watch. Press Set Key and you should see your weather appear!
  11. OPTIONALLY you can enter an OpenWeatherMap.org API key to view weather forecast information. Generate an API key from the OpenWeatherMap.org web page and enter the key into the "Enter Open Weather API Key" field
  12. When you are done entering your API key(s), press Set Key and you should see your weather appear!

Note: In some cases, it takes some time before the API key starts working. If you see error messages indicating a problem with the API key, verify it is correct and wait 1-2 hours and try again
Note: If you see other errors, press the refresh button to try loading data again. In some cases the API returns an error result and trying again works properly
