Great, but it only shows Brussel as city, and my location is correct on the app.... it should get the location automatically..

Great watch face but weather icon could be little bit bigger and need more option for heart rate (can show every minutte) for battery saving. Thanks.

The fast updating heart rate graph is actually the feature I like the most in this watch face, but I'll look into an option of providing a slower updating heart rate graph to favor battery life. Cheers, Peter.

Watch face looks awesome but how do I change the different data fields to look like the other faces in the pictures?

Developer Reply
April 14, 2019, peterdedecker

hi Luke, you can change the data fields in the app settings (in the connect iq section within Garmin Express or Garmin Connect Mobile). Note that some functionality is not present on "older" connect iq v1 watches. Cheers, Peter.

It would be nice, but I'm afraid I don't have enough memory left for this. Maybe in my next watch face project. :) Cheers, Peter.

The face watch good. Just un problèm the weather not be really exactly. I't was write my work location all the day. I would like to see m'y work location weather and weather from my home andd weather location when i make sports.

The watch face can only fetch the location from the last activity, so when you're home open a run activity, wait for green gps fix and exit to the watch face. After a while the location in the watch face will now also be updated. Cheers, Peter.

A lot of the data fields don't work or update on Fenix 5X Plus - can't uninstall it either, which is a bummer.

Developer Reply
April 4, 2019, peterdedecker

see the faq for the uninstall question. I'm not aware about data fields that do not update, you can contact me through contact developer to clarify. Cheers, Peter.

this watch face is fantastic. i never though i can get so many information on such a small screen, in a good way. however, i do have a question: why does the temperature reading have to get from internet? can we have the option to read the temperature from the watch itself instead of getting temperature reading from the area? anyway, good job & love the work. cheers mate

Developer Reply
April 4, 2019, peterdedecker

the watch itself does provide a temperature reading, but is influenced by body heat, so I don't think this is a very useful value to show. The temperature that's available in the Garmin weather widget is not exposed to Connect Iq so the only alternative is fetch it again somewhere from the internet. Cheers, Peter

March 29, 2019 | Version 7.4

Generally nice. A lot of information. Too small fonts. Somehow the design is not "clean".

March 27, 2019 | Version 7.4

Great watchface. Really love it. But I can't get it to work since the update. I have vivoactive 3.

Developer Reply

Something you can try is a reinstall. (Switch to other watch face, uninstall data lover, reinstall data lover). When the problem persists contact me through contact developer, so that we can investigate. Cheers, Peter.

Hi Peter. Great watch face every stat you need is on it. One question the percentage under move circles is percentage movement during day? Or inactive

Developer Reply
March 28, 2019, peterdedecker

The percentage indicates the percentage of your step goals reached. Cheers, Peter.

Thanks for the stars. There's 2 alternative ways to donate here: In case those options don't work for you either, you can also use the contact developer option if you'd prefer a bank transfer. Cheers, Peter.

It was going great but then noticed the temperature saying 8, it's actually 30 degrees right now. There have not been any sudden temperature changes was 25 degrees a few hours ago. Also what I notice with some weather applications they find my location as being a suburb that is close by but not mine. I did put in the latitude and longitude and also used the GPS outside. The suburb is probably about 5 km from here. I suspect this is the Weather site having their locations inaccurate or wrong as other weather sights do find my location. Love the face, layout and look, and will donate if the weather sorts it self out on next weather update.

It sounds like you've set up the weather correctly. Not much I can do about the inaccuracies in your region, as I'm just taking over whatever OpenWeatherMap provides to me. Cheers, Peter.

Excellente application avec un nombre donné très précise et très complète juste un petit bémol concernant la taille des caractères qui est réellement petit et qui mériterait peut-être soit d'augmenter un tout petit peu de table d'hôtes en caractères gras pour certains merci pour le développement je souhaite Smart watch face

I'll have a look.

March 12, 2019 | Version 7.3

I download this face mainly because of the sun raise/set data. I was surprised how much I've like it. I don't use any of the weather features/field. Overall its a very nice watch face. A few suggested improvements ... Be able to change or remove the units for the pressure graph. Currently it only displays mmHg, looks messy and the units overwrite the entire graph. The ability to disable the bottom and/or right graph area. Add a graph for daily vs weekly or daily and weekly activity minutes.

Developer Reply
March 19, 2019, peterdedecker

you now have the choice between mmHg or mbar.

March 12, 2019 | Version 7.3

love love love this watch face. it's got all the info i want at a single glance instead of having to scroll through multiple different widgets. Just donated to get the key to remove donate message and hopefully get more up to date weather, as that's been my only hangup.
