    I downloaded the latest version from Aatif from the thread on XDA forums of this widget based on Xwidget, and then edited it a little because the alignment on some text fields weren't right and some words were cutted, so here it's the results.

    **Update** I just did some editing to Aatif Lite version so we can have the leading 0 removed, now it indeed looks like the original widget.

    So, if some of you with any third party launcher instead of Touch Wiz, would like to give it a try, just download Xwidgets from the Play Store, then download this zip file from here, and then uncompress the folder into your Xwidget\Widgets folder and then open Xwidget and in the Local option click on the 3 dots at the top right corner and do a Refresh list, you should have it in your list now, then just add the widget to your home page and once you have the widget just click on the line that says Updated and it will show you the options so you can customize your settings.

    **ALL CREDITS TO Aatif from XDA Forums, I just edited 2 or 3 lines to calm my OCD**

    It looked like this with leading 0's.

    I like the widget 'transparent clock and weather' from the play store because you can set shortcuts if you click on the minutes (I have accuweather) hours (alarm) and date (calendar). Does anyone know of anything similar that they like even better?

    So you unzipped the file and put it in the Widgets folder and then when you open Xwidgets if you click Refresh list it appears but then you can't use it in the Widget? If so, try clearing cache and data from Xwidgets app and redo this to see if it works, if it doesn't then do everything and when you see the widget on the app click edit, and when it opens to edit, go to the app menu and click on Package, it should create a packaged widget, sometimes by doing this it just forces the app or the widgets to work.

    What I'm telling you here is by experience I've had, I'm not by any chance an Xwidgets expert, so sorry if none of this works, if has worked for others.

    As it is, when you click on most of the widget, it will bring the widget menu, if you click on the weather info it is set to open the weather forecast and if you click on the update icon it will update the weather information.

    When you click on settings and about there is an option that says a click Event, in there you can set to open any app, so you could set it to whatever you want, it can be customized a lot more than that, but you will need to do it on X widgets directly, and you will need to learn how to do it.

    Still not using Nova yet as I do like the latest Touchwiz. But when I do, I'm going to be using this. Thx for doing this.

    The original zip is gone as I've been modifying it, but the link in the OP is the updated one and I just checked and it's still working, did you try the link in the first post?

    I don't use a third-party launcher, but I did replace the stock calendar / weather widget.



    I'm using two applications that I purchased a few years ago. The clock widget is from the "Beautiful Widgets" application and the weather widget comes from "Weather Bug Elite." I like being able to dictate what applications get loaded by clicking on each widget.

    Yeah, there are some very good weather widgets out there, the idea behind this is to keep the look of the Original Weather widget in our phones, I was one of them that would love to keep it but I wanted to use Nova, so I gave up the widget for Nova, so having something very similar for me is like having the best of both worlds.

    PLUS, for some strange reasons that I can't figure it out yet, since I switched to Xwidget and this Weather widget, my Battery life has increased A LOT, check in other threads where I've posted the information but in a summary, for the past 3 days counting today (Since I switched) I've been getting an average of 8 hours on Sunday, 7 yesterday and averaging almost 7.5 - 8 hours of SoT today, an increase of more than an hour on each day with exact same usage of the past month. Only thing different has been switching to this, weird uhh?

    Just to add a little to my previous post, here it is.

    Like I've mentioned already since I switched to the Xwidget and the widget similar to the original weather widget, I've been getting incredible battery life, very similar to the Xperia Z3 that for me, is the best battery life on any Android device right now.

    Before I was getting 5.5 - 6 hours of SoT on weekdays with my Android wear and Bluetooth connected basically all day, and 6.25 - 6.5 hours on weekends, where I just use the Android wear 3 or 4 hours at most. Now for 3 days in a row is been getting, 8.25 on Sunday, about 7 hours yesterday and today 7.5 hours of SoT on average, as you can see in the screen shots below, same settings and usage than the previous 40 days since I got the phone, again, only thing changed has been replacing the weather widget, so what about some of you trying this to see if you have the same results. If you are interested check the threads about the weather widgets.

    Great find. I'm using this right now and feel right back at home with the TouchWiz clock, using Nova.
