Connect IQ: AccuWeather MinuteCast



What if you knew exactly when rain or snow would stop and start? Would knowing the exact precipitation for your area change the way you train? Well now you can fine-tune your training regiments with the AccuWeather’s MinuteCast widget from the Connect IQ store.

This widget is the perfect tool for anyone with an active lifestyle. Whether hiking to the top of a mountain or biking through the city, MinuteCast can help you when you need it most. MinuteCast predicts start and end times for precipitation minute-by-minute for the following two hours. It can even tell you the weather at your exact street address! The data is refreshed every five minutes to provide you with the most relevant and accurate forecast possible.


The main screen of the Widget shows you the 90-minute forecast at your location. If you want to know more, simply hit the start button or follow the instructions on your device to see the full 120-minute forecast. If you need a legend, it’s there as well. The AccuWeather MinuteCast widget is free to download and is compatible with the D2 Bravo, Forerunner 230, Forerunner 235, Forerunner 630, Forerunner 920XT, epix, fēnix 3, and vívoactive.
