What do you think is the best weather complication?

I have Dark Sky in the middle main complication window in Modular. It shows the high and low temp, plus sunrise or sunset time, and finally a short description. Dark Sky in theory is also supposed to be able to warn you with ample time if a thunderstorm is coming in your area. So I think Dark Sky is the best.

But I also like a backup weather complication. The Weather (from the The Weather Channel) has a percent precipitation with an umbrella icon.

Weather uses a nice yellow sun icon when it's sunny out. Otherwise, most weather apps are white in color and I use multicolor Modular. Would be nice to have more color in my watch face.

Any other weather apps you like. Sometimes I have a third weather app with the temp in Celsius so I can get a feel and get to know temperatures in Celsius.

I think the consensus among Apple Watch users is Carrot app. Although I've never tried it.

I, too.. uses Dark Sky. I like Dark Sky ever since it launched. And I have Weather Live as well. I do have Living Earth, but I don't really use it as much.

For me, Dark Sky, as already mentioned, is my favorite application. The developers seem to update this often as well.

Storm. It's a free app and more accurate than the default weather complication.

I started using Storm after Weather Underground complication stopped updating.

I got Dark Sky for my iPhone when it was originally released. Loved the accurate rain alerts. Then I bought my Apple Watch and Carrot became my favourite weather app where it sits as the main complication in the Modular face. However I still use Dark Sky alongside Carrot and Drops for precipitation alerts.
