Status of Windows 10 Compatibility with PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab Weather: 

We are working very hard on a PocketLab Voyager and Weather app for Windows 10. Currently our PocketLab Windows 10 app only supports PocketLab One. Unfortunately, Windows is notorious for poor Bluetooth support and we have to work around many limitations with the Windows platform. From the Microsoft website, they consider supporting the industry standard Web Bluetooth protocol as a “Roadmap Priority: Low”.
