Introducing Apollo Weather for watchOS 10
Published: Oct. 30, 2023
About Apollo Weather
Apollo Weather is a powerful tool for endurance athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. Designed to be your go-to weather app for outdoor activities, and perfect for planning weekly bike rides or long runs.
Apollo will help you answer three questions:
1. What are the best days to train during the week?
2. What are the best hours to train?
3. How should I prepare myself?
IDEAL CONDITIONS AND RATINGS
The user experience prioritizes training decisions and planning. All hourly forecasts have PERFECT, ACCEPTABLE or BAD ratings depending on your ideal conditions and active times. Ratings are based on your preferences instead of a mysterious formula.
WEATHER GROUPS AND ROUTE ANALYSIS
Weather Groups helps athletes track hourly forecasts across multiple locations. While it is valuable for runners and hikers, it excels for cycling. Cyclists can monitor weather conditions before embarking on a ride and even add a route to visualize the journey, simplifying planning and preparation.
Here are some key benefits of using Weather Groups for your next ride:
1. Selecting the appropriate gear before each ride.
2. Choosing the optimal days and times to hit the road.
3. Ensuring proper hydration and fueling strategies.
4. Avoiding challenging headwinds, resulting in a more comfortable return home.
Weather Groups will help you optimize your bike rides and make cycling more enjoyable.
Available data sources for routes include:
1. Existing workouts in the Health app
2. GPX or FIT files
Apollo can be used as a general-purpose weather app and includes a 10-day daily and hourly forecast. Still, it shines when planning outdoor activities like running, cycling, hiking, etc.

Your privacy is important! Apollo Weather may ask your permission to read workout data from the Health app. Workout data is used to let you add an optional route in Weather Groups. Apollo keeps all your data secure and on your device. Your data is never sold or shared with any other apps, services or networks.
