Your best bet to get some assistance and support is to contact me through the proper channels. Read the app description to find all your options. The reviews is not the preferred way to seek assistance, and I appreciate it when people contact me before leaving reviews.

My new favorite watch face. I love the water filling up as my steps increase. Thanks for the customization options as well. This is great!

11 February 2018 | Version 5.9.0

Love this watch face however since I upgraded my phone to android Oreo I keep getting errors when trying to change settings. The watch face does not accept the new settings. Hopefully this might be able to be sorted because this is the best watch face the is imho

The issues described by you is most likely caused by the Connect app itself and not the NoFrills watchface. I will see if I can get this reported.

I just installed and customized this watch face today on my Vivoactive 3. The level of customization is great and it has the details that I need. My only request would be a temperature display.

Really amazing watch face, readable without glasses and perfectly customizeable. Only thing I am missing is a possibility to display steps, distance and calories all together. If Bluetooth Icon would not take a whole line, but would be placed next to Battery or Heartrate Icon instead, one more line would be available for this purpose.

Simple but effective with enough customization to be useful.

G’day from Australia! Really like this watch face mate; it’s my current favourite for every day use. Have one question: what is the moon icon above the hour number for? Couldn’t find reference to it in the configuration screen. Thanks!!

Depends on which device you have. On older devices it is the sleep icon for when you manually put your watch in sleep mode. On more recent devices it is the do not disturb icon, which is retrieved from your configured sleep times in your Connect profile.

Enjoying so far. Only issue is the notification icon is displaying 4 even though there are no notifications on my phone or on my VA3. Tried turning watch off and back on but still it says 4 notifications.

I only display what the device reports to NoFrills. Unfortunately this looks like a hardware issue.

Easy to read, by far favorite watch face for the VA3!

Only certain watches support this.

Great watchface! The best I’ve tried. But I have a little problem. When I charge the device to 100% the battery icon keeps showing 100% despite the real level of battery is lower. If I restart de device, then the level shown is correct. Moreover between yesterday and today the battery level shown was 8% (didn’t change), when the real level was lower (I know it was lower because the device turned off because of low bat). May it be a problem of my device (Garmin Forerunner 735XT)? Thank you!

The best watch face in the store. Simple but shows a lot of information. It’s the only one that I’ve found that keeps the seconds on all the time which is needed in the medical field. The only option you could add to make it perfect would be to add a second time zone. Highly recommend this watch face. Thanks!

It is currently in the backlog. ;-)

Can't change the battery icon on the front screen to a percentage. Just stays as a full battery. Have to stick it onto a run to se the battery percentage. Only done this since my software updated

Developer Reply
27 January 2018, HermoT

There is a setting to make the percentage color different from the battery icon. Seems it is same and that is why you don't see it. Check NoFrills settings.

26 January 2018 | Version 5.8.0

Can you add function to toggle notification icon to on/off, please?? I don’t want to see it sometimes and want to disappear.

I am losing 2.9 % battery every hour. i cant seem to find any other reason as this is the only additonal app/widget/watchface i have installed. The drain becomes lesser considerably when i shift to stock watch face. i really want to use this watchface. can you help me? other settings are - bluetooth connect to mobile, gestures on, medium vibration and 30 % backlight. help me pleaseeee. this way the watch battery isnt lasting even a day. i will be more than happy for 3 days!!

Make sure that your firmware is up to date, and if it is, scan the Garmin forums to see if others have the same issues with that particular firmware. There is unfortunately not much more I can do. NoFrills has been optimised several times to lessen the impact on battery.

26 January 2018 | Version 5.8.0

Excellent! easy to read and well proportioned with large HH:MM display and step goal filling the mumbers. Thanks for very usefull clock.

25 January 2018 | Version 5.8.0

great watchface also like the option if got to stepgoal you can have a second color to refill and replace the first color and keep on counting really fun
