Windy Apple Watch: Complete Guide
Whether you are out doing sports or simply do not have time to reach out for your phone, the Apple Watch version of Windy is here for you to give you the most recent weather forecast along with new exciting features right from your wrist.
Let's take a look at all the options Windy gives you with your Apple Watch. When you open the app, you will find several choices from Forecast to Weather radar. Find what each of them mean below.
The first option in the menu is Forecast, where you will find forecast for the next upcoming 10 days in 3 hour intervals. You can click on each hour interval to access more detailed overview containing information about Rain, Wind, Wind direction and Dew point. Use digital crown to scroll up/down.
Wind forecast shows forecasted wind strength for the next 2 days in the current location. For moving the timeline, use the digital drown on the side of Apple Watch.
If you have any METARs in favorites in the app and have accessible iCloud, those METARs will be synchronised with your Watch and you will see them here.
In case you do not have any saved METARs nor you have active iCloud, you can still search for airports manually by typing ICAO codes or you can view airports nearby in the "Around" option.
You can save airports with "Add METAR" and start receiving METAR notifications by turning on "Notify me once of METAR update" option in the airport detail.
Radar shows Doppler radar composite. Use digital crown to zoom in or zoom out on the map.
Tapping on the map will hide control elements, so you can view radar map without any disturbing components.
Watch Faces and Complications
Windy comes with its own Watch Face and you can add it directly on your watch under Watch Faces or in the Watch application on your iPhone.
You can customise each Face according to your wish with Complications that are available within each Watch Face.
Complications are also shortcuts to access a specific functions of an app. Windy offers Infograph Modular Face.
Please also note that Complications are only available for Apple Watch ver. 4 or above.
Here you can choose whether you would like to synchronise your units selection from the app or set units manually. If you do not have active iCloud, units will not synchronise.

Well done!! It seems really nice!
I own a Samsung Gear S3 with circular screen. It is not android, it runs Tizen.
I would really love to have the Windy app on my watch, but I understand that the development for another ecosystem is costly and demands hours. So, I keep my fingers crossed for the case that you might be able to do it!!
Keep up the excellent work!!
@edaskal Happy that you like it! If there will be enough demand from our users, we may consider it :)
@korina I'd also like the Tizen app please! I'd love windy on my Gear S3 watch

Would love to see actual weather station data (wind rose, wind graph) on my watch. Would be super useful when your out and about on the beach to check the wind trends upwind from the spot!
@martin-salem Thank you for input, we will consider it.
