    I've been using the default Weather app on the watch which is basically the weather app from the iPhone. I'm not sure which station its pulling weather info from but it has never been accurate for me. I use BeWeather 2 on my iPhone for weather conditions and forecasts because it allows me to choose from multiple weather stations in my surrounding area. Naturally, I choose the closest to get the most accurate info. Unfortunately, BeWeather 2 hasn't been updated for the Apple Watch yet so I now use Dark Sky which provides the most accurate weather conditions on my watch. It's been raining heavily with lightning for about half an hour now but the stock weather app hasn't indicated this at all. The Dark Sky watch app does so I've removed the stock weather app from glances. It's too bad they don't offer the option to choose weather stations. Dark sky at least chooses the closest weather station according to my location.

    On another note, I go to the beach and Rivers a lot so I like to know what the tide is. I found a nice app that supports the Apple Watch called "Tides". I like the little things like the animated water on the watch.

    I tried to find Dark Sky. What I found was an app for night time photography.
    That's not the one, is it?

    Thanks. But I found that it is not available to the Canadian market. Oh well!
