Stopped working after latest firmware update on forerunner 245. Watch face won't load at all. Loved it before that. Please fix

Nothing to fix. Try to uninstall it, then restart your watch and then reinstall. Please contact me through “Contact developer” link if you’re still stuck after that.

Awesome simple and nice watch face. I would like to see actual alarm time instead of just alarm count, but thats only minor improval suggestion :-)

Developer Reply
17 August 2019, HermoT

Unfortunately Garmin does not expose the alarm time to developers. It has been requested in the past, but no word from them on that. Thanks for your review!

Love it except the weather is completely inaccurate. Watch says it's 88 degrees out when it's actually 105. Is there a way to make sure it is getting local weather? Everything else is accurate.

Developer Reply

It only uses the built-in temperature sensor and is in no way connected to weather services as this will have a detrimental effect on performance and battery consumption of this watch face. Built-in sensor is known to be affected by skin temperature. Take it off to get a more accurate reading.

Great watch face. The battery comsuption is similar to the built in watch face. Lots of customisation. Thank you!

Thanks for your great review! I have taken a lot of steps to ensure this conserves battery power, and it is really nice to read that users do notice the effort!

I LOOOVE this watch face but can’t get sunrise/sunset data to there a trick? I’ve selected it to show in settings but only get blank - -:- - underneath? Absolutely love the face though!!!

Developer Reply

You first need to get a GPS reading. Open an activity that requires GPS and wait for the signal to turn green, then you can return to the watch face.

15 August 2019 | Version 6.15.0

Great face watch. Normally my watch will alway show the Bluetooth, notification box&count number but now, the icon will only show when connecting the app. How to fix this issue? Thanks...

Developer Reply

It only shows when the iOS Connect app is running or in the background. It has always been like that. You probably switched from Android to iOS recently?

I really like this face. There is just one issue I have, when the device is charging it would be nice if the battery icon could show this somehow. I cannot see any visual indication of charging.

Developer Reply

It’s only available on newer devices. There is a limitation in the Garmin software not making this information available to developers on the older devices.

Awesome watch face!! I love how easy it is to read the time and how customizable it is. Thank you for such an amazing watch face and great work!!

自分にとって必要な表示が全て見やすく配置されている。また、目標歩数に連動してデジタル表示の時間部分が徐々に水色部分が増えるのも面白い。一点、白色から赤色のバーに変化するのは何なのか不明。 All the necessary displays for me are arranged in an easy-to-read manner. It is also interesting that the time portion of the digital display gradually increases in light blue in conjunction with the target number of steps. It is unknown what changes from a white bar to a red bar.

Developer Reply
13 August 2019, HermoT

Thanks for the kind review! The red bar is a standard Garmin feature and is called the move bar. You can read about it here:

Great !

Rally happy with the face watch! One suggestion: would it be possible to add a time display with seconds? Seconds are now only visible in actieve mode, but I'd like to see it all the time.

Developer Reply
12 August 2019, HermoT

You most likely have one of the older unsupported watches when it comes to always-on seconds. This is a hardware limitation by Garmin and is done on purpose to conserve battery. Only the newer watches released since (and including) the fenix 5 supports always-on seconds. There is nothing developers can do to force always-on seconds on older watches.

Very good the app. I wonder why the heart meter is taking too long to update. The yellow notification icon and green messages are not showing.

Developer Reply
12 August 2019, HermoT

Heart rate on the older (non 1Hz) watches are updated only every 2 minutes. This is a limitation of the hardware itself and not the app. The yellow icon, assuming you refer to the main app image, is the alarm. It only shows if you have at least 1 alarm set. The green will only show if you have at least 1 unread notification on your phone, and your watch is connected to the phone. Also, on iOS the Connect app has to be running or at least be in the background.

My phone is set on 24 hours but the watch shows am and pm time settings, how do I change this? great watch face but for the lack of the 24 hour tike setting

Developer Reply
12 August 2019, HermoT

Thanks for contacting me through "Contact developer" and giving me a chance to explain. I'm posting this here as well for the sake of other users to see the resolution: It often happens that when all the various apps and software in Garmin’s ecosystem syncs with your device, it overrides the setting on your device. You may have set it to 24 on the device, but the settings in either the Connect mobile app, or Express on your computer, is still set to 12, and when it syncs, it overwrites the setting back to 12 on the watch. Please ensure that the setting is set to 24 everywhere: device settings, Connect app, Express etc.

Good simple interface. It is the lightest on battery consumption. Easy to customize, only essential data is displayed, avoiding cluttering.

Nice face. But can we have 24hr mode??

Developer Reply
10 August 2019, HermoT

Make sure to set the format (12/24) inside the watch's settings. NoFrills uses the system settings to determine the time format to display. Did you mean to give this only a 3 star rating? :)

Hi Ted, thanks for your kind review and rating! After your email I realized that a particular setting wasn’t very intuitive to use, so I released an update to help make it clearer. Thanks to people like you who contact me through the proper channels, I can better assist and improve the app. Enjoy!!

Great watch face. I’ve been using this watch face for whole year and can’t find any others better. However, with recent updates, some settings, e.g. minute color & Bluetooth color can’t be changed.

Thanks for your review. Please make sure NOT to change the "Theme" at the same time you try to save color changes for individual elements. Theme is just a way to reset any colors you've applied in the past to give you an opportunity to customize colors starting from a clean slate.
