On the GWD tutorial, section 9 talks about the weather API from OpenWeatherMap.  There is a "tip" that says: "The .gwd file itself doesn’t contain the API key, so sharing the .gwd file doesn’t guarantee that weather data will be displayed correctly."  

Does this mean that if I publish my watch face with weather info to the store, that the weather components won't work for others unless they have their own API key?

No, customers don't need their own API key, the weather will work.

If you share the actual .GWD file with someone else, they will most likely need their own weather API key if they want to build and run that watch face and have accurate weather.

Hi,
Customer don't need to use any PAI Key, weather will work by it's own key as use initialize while design.
