My favorite! Thank You for update. Happy New Year!

Would you please add Body Battery, Stress Level options for progress bars?

Is it possible to add letter wind direction to the wind information (like N, NE, WSW…)? :)

5. August 2021 | Version 1.2.2

Is it possible to add Blood oxygen?

Antwort des Entwicklers
5. August 2021, JFM

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, blood oxgen will be most probably added.

25. Juli 2021 | Version 1.2.2

Superbe cardan, très complet, avec un nombre non négligeable de paramétrage possible. Quelques difficultés pour obtenir l'altitude (malgré une session de marche de plus d'une heure), et la quasi impossibilité de trouver les coordonnées d'un lieu en unités numériques - habituellement donnés en degrés - pour obtenir la distance jusqu'au domicile. Suggestion également : une flèche pour la direction du vent dans les prévisions météo serait plus éloquente qu'un chiffre difficile à interpréter

Excellent! Thank You very much!

Cadrans qui débouche sur un écran avec un grand iQ ! Sur ma Forerunner 245. Dommage. Semblait intéressant

Malheureusement, FR245 a quelques limitations matérielles. J'ai réduit les options dans les paramètres de FR245 et cela devrait fonctionner correctement maintenant (avec certaines options désormais disponibles en raison des limitations matérielles mentionnées). Unfortunately FR245 has some hardware limitations. I reduced options in settings for FR245 and it should work properly now (with some options now available because of mentioned HW limitations).

I love the watch face! Definitely offers some unique options that most don’t offer. My only there an option for “current weather?” I like the 3 hour forecast but would also like weather now. Also, I can’t seem to get the distance to home option to work when I put in my coordinates. Maybe I’m doing it wrong. Do I need to add N or W to the coordinates? Thanks!

Antwort des Entwicklers
16. Februar 2021, JFM

Thank you for your review and your feedback. Unfortunately there is no option for current weather at this moment. I can not promise anything, but I will consider adding it. For correct "distance to home" calculation you have to enter target location in positive/negative "decimal degrees" format. For example Opera House in Sydney - -33.8571981, 151.2151233. Also your last know position must be available. If not, just refresh your position by selection any sport activity which uses GPS and wait until you see green GPS.

One of my favourite watchfaces that i use. Lots of customisation options and is good on the battery life too!!

Great watcth face but where do you get wheather API Key?

Thank you for your review. The Weather API key you can get for free at Please see also app's description.

I am using it with fenix 6x. The function is excellent and the display is also cool. &...The clock is modern and the display is easy to use. from Japan

It looks great and paid for it. However I have one suggestion. Is it possible to put moon phase icon in the weather section? If so, it will be much greater.

Antwort des Entwicklers
25. Februar 2020, JFM

Thank you for your review and your suggestion. Technically it's not problem, but it takes some memory of course (size of memory is the biggest problem when you develop watches for Garmin devices). But Bongo is still in development, so I will consider your suggestion.

I can’t install this face? Shows installed, but just shows iQ logo. Fénix 5 plus sw up to date with plenty of storage.

Antwort des Entwicklers
13. Februar 2020, JFM

Sorry for the troubles. Please are you able and willing to send me the file Garmin/Apps/Logs/CIQ_LOG.YML from your watch? It could help me to find the cause of the problem. Thank you in advance.

8. Februar 2020 | Version 1.1.1

It is amazing! I really love it!

27. Januar 2020 | Version 1.1.0

I've sent you an email, 945BONGO

22. Januar 2020 | Version 1.1.0

Some suggestions: 1: please display the current weather and wind speed 2. Use arrow instead of degree to display wind direction. Thanks.

Antwort des Entwicklers
26. Januar 2020, JFM

Thank you for your review and your feedback. 1) At this time I have no immediate plan to add current weather, but I will consider it. 2) Yes, I plan to add arrow for displaying wind direction.

Awesome watchface. I payd for that. 5 stars if I can chose the colors by myself. Not only witch 10 presets. :)

Antwort des Entwicklers
13. Januar 2020, JFM

Thank you for you review and your feedback. I agree that choosing colors freely would be better, but the reason why I chose this way is memory saving. Free color choosing takes much more memory then preset color schemes. And I wanted to preserve some memory to be able to offer more other features. One of this features is automatic color scheme switching after sunset and with preset color schemes it is more easier and more user friendly (in my opinion).

7. Januar 2020 | Version 1.1.0

Special thanks to the developer. Really thank you. Great and Awesome. Everything is in place. I recommend everyone to enjoy and enjoy this beautiful watch Face.

Perfectly works on F6X. Thank You. Is it possible to add Body Battery option to progress bars and data fields? And still waiting for HR info we discussed.

Antwort des Entwicklers
7. Januar 2020, JFM

Thank you for your review! If I read Garmin's SDK properly, I did not find body battery is available for developers to implement it. I hope it will change in the future. And yes, I still keep in my mind your HR suggestion.

6. Januar 2020 | Version 1.1.0

says if you change settings get a msg 10mins ,chsnged settings to check it out immediately message to donate was there so couldnt see watch face how i configured it so not donating ,watch face deleted ,some devs getting greedy better off using stock faces

Antwort des Entwicklers
7. Januar 2020, JFM

Thank you for your opinion. The mentioned popup window appears every 10 minutes (when you change concrete features mentioned in app's description) and lasts for 1 minute. You probably coincidentally hit multiple of 10 minutes (e.g. 12:20, 12:30 etc.) and therefore you saw it immediately.

10. Dezember 2019 | Version

Always waiting for weather data

Antwort des Entwicklers
10. Dezember 2019, JFM

Did you enter proper API key? Did you refresh your GPS position? If the problem persists, please contact me via 'contact developer'. Thank you.

На Garmin 6X Pro Solar оплатил 2.40 евро. Но на экране ничего не изменилось. Появляется заставка об оплате и ничего не работает.

Antwort des Entwicklers
10. Dezember 2019, JFM

When you send donation, nothing happens automatically. You will receive an activation key from me. As it's manual process and you sent your donation during European night, I sent you the key after 5 hours. Everything is clearly described in app's description. Когда вы отправляете пожертвование, ничего не происходит автоматически. Вы получите ключ активации от меня. Поскольку это ручной процесс, и вы отправили пожертвование в европейскую ночь, я отправил вам ключ через 5 часов. Все четко описано в описании приложения.

На garmin fenix 6x не работает ( iq!)

Antwort des Entwicklers
14. Dezember 2019, JFM

If your watch is new, try to update its firmware to the latest version. This problem happened when factory firmware version was installed. Если ваши часы новые, попробуйте обновить их прошивку до последней версии. Эта проблема возникла, когда была установлена заводская версия.
