I love this watch face. It has everything on one screen and plenty of options. The only thing I would like to see to make it even better would be an option to have the seconds displayed all of the time.

Love this watch face, it’s simple to read whilst still displaying a lot of information! I like that the time fills up with progress and that you can customise that... I like the water though! Question: can you permanently display seconds?

Developer Reply
May 24, 2019, HermoT

Unfortunately, due to hardware limitation, permanent seconds are only supported on newer devices released since (and including) the fenix 5, with the Forerunner 45 being the only exception to this rule. Anything before the fenix 5 cannot do that.

Cool but my color modifications don't work on FR 235

Please contact me through the "Contact developer" link. You will receive support much quicker than just leaving a review here saying you have an issue. Look for the link under the App Info tab in the store.

Really like this watch face, gives me everything i need... Only question i have: is it possible to show NO-FLY TIME on this face ???

Developer Reply
May 23, 2019, HermoT

Unfortunately not, Garmin doesn’t make certain data fields available to third party developers. Probably licensing restrictions. :-(

May 21, 2019

My go to watch face for my Vivoactive 3. It gives me everything I need - heart rate, step count, battery, date/time. Super easy to set up!

Developer Reply

Thank you so much for your kind review! Enjoy your vivoactive 3, it is an awesome watch!

My absolute favorite clock face! Shows exactly what I want to see and makes it so easy to keep track of my steps. I love that the app colors even match my 735xt!

Thank you so much for your kind review and your very generous donation towards NoFrills! This is highly appreciated! Enjoy your 735xt, I have one too and it is a fantastic watch!

May 20, 2019

Got my new FR 945 and wanted the NoFrills as face. Installed smoothly and I could tweak it to my heart will. I had a question to Hermo which he promptly answered and was bang on. I will gladly recommend this highly customizable face. Fonty

Najlepsza tarcza jaką znalazłem. Są wszystkie potrzebne informacje w bardzo czytelnej formie. A wszystko wygląda elegancko. W ustawieniach wiele możliwości personalizacji... Myślę, że ta tarcza zostanie ze mną jeżeli nie na zawsze to na baaaaardzo długo. Może tylko dodałbym aktualną temperaturę.

Hi recently in settings in Garmin Express I lost the text of each item and have only the menus so it is impossible to use, I suspect this is since the latest version, do you confirm the problem? (On a VivoActive HR) Thanks for this great app! Julien

Developer Reply
May 19, 2019, HermoT

It is a bug in Garmin Express when your computer language is different from English. If you temporarily switch your Windows language to English, you’ll see the settings correctly. You may also want to try the Garmin Connect Mobile or Connect IQ apps, they are easy to use to manage apps and settings on your devices. Check the video to see how.

I love everything about this watchface except for the fact that my mild OCD can't get past the off-center time when seconds is enabled. If I turn seconds off then the time slides over to center. Would be nice if maybe there was a seconds option to replace the Bluetooth icon near the bottom instead.

May 18, 2019

Simple layout, just what I need! Thanks!

For me the best watch face. With all information and readable without glasses also in the night. unfortunately, right now I cannot use the preferences.garmin express breaks down when accessing the options button (three dots)

Developer Reply
May 17, 2019, HermoT

Thanks for your review. Unfortunately there is a bug in Garmin Express when your computer language is not English. A quick workaround is to set your computer language to English and try the settings/preferences again, and once you've made your changes, you can switch back to your original language. Another option is to use the Connect Mobile App to configure NoFrills from your phone. Watch the video to see how!

May 16, 2019

Everything you want and need to see in one glance. Laid out beautifully and the customizable features are just another reason to love not! BEST watch face in the IQ Store.

Excellent, simple, easy to customize. Watch the YouTube video. If you don't like the waves, change to 'alternate' font in menu.

Love it! Everything can be configured and the time is so clear and easy to read. One suggestion please: to have the week short names all having three letters, e.g. Thursday would appear as Thu instead of as Thur. Lovely watch face, well done.

Добрый день! Циферблат отличный. Пересмотрел почти все в Connect IQ, это - самый лучший. Но есть один вопрос: можно ли сделать так, чтобы секунды отображались постоянно? Спасибо.

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, HermoT

Always-on or permanent seconds is only supported on devices that have the required hardware. It is a hardware limitation and nothing I can do about. It is only supported on devices released since (and including) the Fenix 5, but excluding the FR 45.

May 14, 2019

Nice watch face, dont like the fill up and the HR reading rarely agrees with the actual reading on the HR screen on my Vivoactive HR

Developer Reply
May 14, 2019, HermoT

The water filling can be switched off in the settings of NoFrills. Check out the video to see how to access NoFrills settings. As for the HR, unfortunately the Vivoactive HR doesn’t support real-time HR like the newer devices. This is not a software limitation but a hardware one, so unfortunately nothing I can do about it.

This watch face is simple, informative and very easy to watch time, date, steps and hr that I think they are the most important data. If there is a update version with temperature, it will be better for those loving travel like me.

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, HermoT

On some devices, you can set the datafield under the clock to display temperature, but it only uses the built-in thermometer. I don't plan on adding any weather features as it negatively impacts the performance and battery life of the watch.

Forest Suggs

Can you add an option to show temperature + miles ? thanks

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, HermoT

I will add your request to my backlog, but it will only be available on more recent newer devices because of memory constraints. Please send me an email using the Contact developer link in the app description and tell me which device do you have.

Самый удобный циферблат. Один пункт: на vivoactive HR не указывает степень заряда аккумулятора. Thanks!

Developer Reply
May 15, 2019, HermoT

Please contact me through the Contact Developer link in the app description. You should see the battery on the vivoactive HR. You might have configured the battery color incorrectly which probably hides it because it is the same color as the background.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
