    Has anyone seen 3 digit temperature complications? Down here around Dallas we've been right around at, or above 100 for a few weeks now. But I've never seen my watch go above 99.

    Not a huge deal...hot is hot....just curious.

    No, same here for North Florida but my watch hasn't registered over 98. Now if they took into account heat index we wouldn't be below 100 for the past couple of months.
    Maybe someone from Az could chime in? I'm sure you guys have had 100+ days.

    Oops never mind. Just looked down at my watch and lo and behold... [​IMG]

    I'll be super happy when there are 3rd party complications. It's probably just me (or maybe where I live), but I always find TWC to be highly inaccurate for temperature and rain prediction. I much prefer Dark Sky/Forecast.io/Beweather2. I hope that Dark Sky will be quick to offer a temperature complication.

    Couldn't agree more. TWC is right about 50% of the time

    Not sure why anyone would expect otherwise. We have many more digits in the other complications.

    So, we're in the same boat. :D

    Like you said above, if the complication counted for heat index, our temps would be in the 100's almost every day. It would be nice to have the option to switch between the "actual temperature" and "feels like temperature."

    Yes! You would think this would be a given. I could care less about actual temperature when the "feels like" temperature is 15 degrees higher. Being a firefighter, I don't have the luxury of a nice cool office all of the time. It's important to me and my crew to keep track of temps. A complication on the watch would be great. I don't want to have to go into the actual app to see what it actually feels like. Hopefully with the release of watch iOS 2.0 they'll make that a reality

    Amen! Who cares if it's in the 90's outside, when the humidity is in the 80's and there's not a single cloud in the sky, making it feel like 115°. Working outdoors, add in any equipment/gear/load and increase the temperature to 120-125°. It might "actually" be around 90°, but our bodies tell us otherwise.

    I do like that Dark Sky now allows notifications, which I can receive on my watch. I currently have it set to notify me at 12pm if the feels like temperature is going to be over 100°. Which is nice, but not as convenient as having the feels like temperature directly on the watch face.

    Because, as I said in my OP, we've had 2 weeks of triple digit temperatures already and I've yet to see that reflected on my watch til yesterday, right after my post.

    Yeah, but the temperature reading is mirrored from the iPhone weather app so the real question is why are the temperature readings so off in your area?

    I live in the North of England so I'm unable to test this.

    I can't lie, I would kill for some of your temperatures right now. I love summer time in Florida but I went for a run last night at 7:30 and it was still 90 degrees actual temperature. It's the humidity that kills us here.

    At least you won't have this problem anymore when they enable third party complications.

    I was just thinking about this yesterday wishing Dark Sky was a complication already. I sent the developer a message asking if they would consider adding feels like to their glance so I could see it there. I use the feels like already for the widget on the phone.

    For everyone wanting heat index, the Yahoo Weather widget shows that in addition to the actual temperature. Would be an ok alternative if the data would update reliably, but it doesn't. I'll often see values in there from 8 hours ago. I blame Apple for that honestly.
