Review from Guillaume Rémond
Great product but Too much iOS oriented. Where are the historical graphs? And a widget would be great to get current data without opening the app
January 10, 2013Historical graphs will be available for Android users by the end of January
Outdoor unit battery drain (not related to Android version as Netatmo is trying to convince) Asked Netatmo about high battery usage of outdoor module, simple technical question, Netatmo instead of answer directed me to distributor I bought unit from. Definitely not the way you want to be treated by manufacturer. Wrong answer from manufacturer: "outdoor module battery drain related to Android 5" TOTALLY NOT RELATED it is OUTDOOR unit. BTW I'm using another versions of Android and Windows.
Since setting up my netatamo, I haven't come across any major bugs in the app, it seems stable and does work accurately. However, it's main feature seems to just displaying the local weather forecast from a third party service- (which Google already does on my home screen!). The stats from the device are only current values, with no pretty graphs as promised by the promo video. Overall I think the gadget is nice, but there's so much potential for cool things to do with the data, and this app does nout Thanks for your reply, can now see graphs :) But that wasn't intuitive, still I think more features and user-friendliness could be incorporated
Nice hardware, but minimalist widget Without display on the hardware, the widgets could play this role, and show graphs or current data efficiently. Instead of this, we have poor widgets, displaying minimalistic information or wasting space, with no choice to use a solid background instead of a transparent one, difficult to read on some wallpapers... Bottom line, widgets need improvement and customization options.
Hardware is nice, but app isn't there yet. It definitely loses a star for the lack of a permanent notification option. What's the point of an Internet-connected $180 weather station if I still need another (free) app just to see the temperature in my notification bar? Many bugs in the app, too - e.g. can't use keyboard to change rain level in personalized notifications despite app saying you can.
Nice but ugly interface I like the features, but interface was already outdated and unsexy already before Material Design invention. Please update it!
Works well The readings for outdoor temp and rainfall are consistent with other local weather stations. Indoor temp is consistent with a regular thermometer. The android app and web app work well most of the time, so I am pleased with my purchase. I'd like to see the outdoor temp displayed in the android notifications area.
