this is the move circles graph, the lines will light up if you're not active enough (first after 1 hour, next one every 15 minutes). To uncolor the lines you have to walk a few minutes. Cheers, Peter.

It was installed on my Forerunner 645Music. It worked until today, when crashed without easy understanding. The IQ! appeared in display in the interfaces selection and I can't select it anymore. So, I removed this interface and reinstall it (4 or 5 times), but it still the same error. What can I do to? It's like there is files in the watch that it use and were not removed, so when this interface is reinstalled, the error remains. Thanks

can you connect your watch with the usb cable and send me the file that's located in the folder garmin-apps-logs. Send the ciq_log.yml file to [email protected]

Die App ist wirklich sehr gut. Alles sieht man auf einem Blick. Ein ganz großer Nachteil ist, das sehr viel Akku gezogen wird. Ein Aufzeichnen von Aktionen über mehrere Stunden ist nicht möglich

Once you have acquired a gps position (go out and start a run activity, wait for 'green' gps, return to watch face) the battery consumption will be a lot less. (the sunset calculation will from that moment only run at midnight). Cheers, Peter.

Thanks for the quick response! Garmin does indeed have buggy firmware on the FR45.....100% if the watch faces I've downloaded have crashed. Zero response from Garmin so it's return time. Fantastic looking watch face by the way!

I love this face! It works on my FR45 now that it has the 2.6 update, and it looks great. The watch still likes to reboot while changing faces, but that happens with any custom face. It's perfectly stable once this face is running. I would love to have heart rate on the screen, some other custom faces do show HR on the FR45 so I wonder if this one could too.

Developer Reply

For the hr graph there's not sufficient memory on the 45 but I've added hr as a field option to the fr45 in the latest release. Let me know if it works. Cheers, Peter.

I love this watch face! It's one of the best out there for the amount of details provided. Sunrise, sunset, moon phase, heart rate with graph, etc. I'd perhaps like the ability to hide the location on the weather as it gets a little busy. But does let you know it updated location. Most of the negative reviews are blasting the watch face over what are system limitations. Wearable devices have 3rd party applications run in tight sandboxes.

Developer Reply
June 23, 2019, peterdedecker

Thanks Michael, I tried to find the balance between too busy and easy to glance at. I'd love to add more configuration options but I'm a bit limited with the memory that's granted to watch faces by Garmin. Cheers, Peter.

Great watchface, I would like heart rate and maybe the graph to only show when you look at the watchface on the Garmin 245 like how it does on one of the other watchfaces on here.

Developer Reply

In an early version of Data Lover I had a whole screen that acted upon gesture (never released this). I threw away all this code because it never seemed to activate when I wanted it to activate. Not being a fan of gestures it's unlikely that an activation feature on gesture gets added to Data Lover. Cheers, Peter.

Is there anyway I can change the location from Brussel to the proper country/region?

Developer Reply

It sounds like you are running an old version of the app. Switch to other face, uninstall & reinstall data lover. Refer to faq q1 for the weather/location setup. Cheers, Peter.

Easily one of the best watch faces around, if not the best. A lot of statistics, data and customisations make this a great watch face for data lovers! I donated after the first day of use :)

The perfect watch face if you want all the critical data. Works as advertised, except -- my move chart doesn't update. It always looks like concentric gray semicircles. Still trying to figure that out.

Developer Reply
June 20, 2019, peterdedecker

it's a good thing it's gray as it means you're active enough. When you didn't move enough during 1 hour one circle lights up, an extra ring gets added for 15 minutes of inactivity. Cheers, Peter.

Hi, i like your w-face but: on my fenix 3HR - which is connect IQ 1 device i cant activate some functionalities (like change the move bar field to temperature). anyway i would prefer to use this "move bar space for other options like to have there 2 or 3 more data fields (stairs, calories, distance). because there is not enough field positions to get them all on the screen. could you update this please ? thanks
