Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to install anything?
No. Just connect Klimat to your training log and it handles the rest. All processing is done in the cloud.
Why do you need access to my profile and activity data?
So Klimat can add weather information to your activities.
What training log data do you store?
The activity id for activities that are processed.Activity start times so we can sort your activities page.Non-identifying information necessary to communicate with your training log on your behalf.
My Garmin/Wahoo/... device already does this.
I always ride with a Garmin Fenix 5s. It records temperature during the ride and my training log plots this alongside other data. To view the temperature data I have to go to my training log website and I rarely do that. I wanted weather at a glance - in my feed on my phone - so I built Klimat.
If you already have all the information you want where you want it then Klimat might not be for you. Thanks for checking it out :)
Why isn't Klimat completely free?
Klimat will always have a free tier with basic weather. I added a Premium tier to offset the costs of running the service.
What do you use for subscription processing?
Klimat accepts payment via either PayPal or Stripe. Using these payment providers allows Klimat to have no knowledge of credit cards, bank accounts, or the specifics of any transaction. All storage and processing is handled by the payment providers. If you have any questions or concerns please email me.
How long does it take to update my activity?
Updates normally happen within a few seconds of your activity uploading to your training log, however there are times when the internet is slow. This is rare, but when it happens it can take up to a few hours to process an activity.
How do I stop using it and delete my data?
If you'd like to stop using Klimat just go to your training log and remove Klimat's access.
How does it work?
After you upload or update an activity Klimat looks up the data for the time and location of the activity. It then adds the conditions you want to the activity's description. Should you already have a description Klimat will add the weather to it.
Dark Sky or AccuWeather?
Do you keep GPS data?
No. GPS information is used for data lookup and immediately discarded - Klimat does not store GPS information.
What is Activity Feel?
Activity Feel is a measure of what it really felt like when you were out there.
Klimat extracts details from your activity and the weather and uses them to calculate the temperature you felt during your activity.
How do I login?
Click on the Connect button for your training log on this page. You'll be asked to login to your training log, then you will be forwarded to your activities and settings pages.
Wind direction isn't in my native language.
If you aren't seeing wind direction localized it's because I don't have compass headings for your language. Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll take care of it.
I connected my account, but I don't see weather in my activities.
Klimat won't populate weather for activities that are missing GPS information. If you aren't seeing weather for activities that have GPS information please email me at email@example.com.
