What’s New

IMPORTANT: This watch face is FREE, but its development took me a lot of hours and I'm still trying to make it better (there were more than 70 upgrades until now :).

Great, current using, Can bottom Sub-face display dual Time? in stead of sunrise/sun set. This seem more flexible.

Is it a bug or only me when ticking „disable signature“ also all 5 minutes marker are removed as well? Thanks for investigating and for your efforts for this nice work! Device: FR 935, latest firmware and latest face version too

There is no such bug. Enabling/disabling signature has nothing to do with the minute marks. Try to uninstall and install back the watch face. Sometimes it can happen that your device uses settings file from a previous code version.

How i can change the metric system of altitude from ft to meters?

Developer Reply
26 June 2018, mbell-SVK

You have to change it in your watch settings: Settings/System/Units/Elevation(Meters).

Had to write a second review since I cannot update my original. The response from the developer cleared up the crash issue I was having when I configured the watch face on my vivo active3. This is now my favorite watch face with all the data and aesthetics I want in one place.

very nice watch face! But I can't get the customization done on my Fenix 5. My watch only lets me choose the watch face, but does not show a possibility in the menu to change field s and/or colors... How?

Developer Reply
11 June 2018, mbell-SVK

Thanks! ;) For the customization you have to use either Garmin Connect or Garmin Express apps, exactly the same way as for the other CIQ watch faces. E.g. in Garmin Connect go to: Menu-Garmin Devices-(your connected watch)-Activities & App Management-Watch Faces-HandsFive-Settings (and there you have a lot of options to play with). Your watch has to be connected to the phone via BT and your phone has to be connected to the internet.

I am using vivoactive 3 and this watch face is so good. However I have no idea what is showed in the lower sub-face. It will be better if I can edit each sub-face but not only the upper one. I do suggest making the second hand always-show.

Very nice and clean wf with lots of data and customization. Works perfectly on my Fenix 5S. Thank you very much for your great work!

This watch face has all the functionality that I am looking for. However, when you customize the watch face in settings it crashes the watch face and it disappears from the selection menu. I am using a Vivoactive 3 so it may work fine on other devices

Developer Reply

That is related to some firmware issues on Vivoactive 3 only and just when history charts are selected, although there is no such a problem when testing it in software simulator (for Vivoactive 3). If you keep history charts off in settings, you can use all other functionality without any problems.

I live in northern Norway and the midnight sun period is just some weeks away. This watch face worked fine intil just resent when sunset and sunrise is just after midnight (summertime in Norway and midnight is actually 0100 am, and both Sunset and sunrise is after 00 am). Now the watchface will not show once the gps signal is updated. I suspect this is an error related to the special situation handling the northern most altitudes during the summer season. Othewise a very Nice face. I hope this bug can be fixed. Jan Ove

Thanks for your feedback! The problem with sunrise/sunset calculation for polar areas during the midnight sun period have been already fixed in new version 6.60.

After being testing many watch faces this one is for me the most balanced and wise data showing, esthetic, and with many customizing options.

A good watch face. Please consider add floors count options where the altmeter is so we won’t need to change watch faces. Thank you

Everything is very excellent. Easy to read. A lot of function to customize. By the way the moon face should be adjustable & compensate +/- days. I found the full moon is not correct when compare to calendar in Thailand. Thank you to create this watch face. I love it.

This is the most stylish and contemporary fusion of watch face style with data display technology available. It is readable, highly configurable, and practical, and thus will outlast novelty designs. I've made a contribution to recognize the effort and success as well as provided feedback for potential enhancements.

This is an excellent watch face. Thank you. I just bought a Tactix Charlie and cannot see the second hand. No big deal.

Thanks for your feedback. The second hand works only in full power mode (activated by your wrist gesture) and lasts just for 10 sec each time. Otherwise the small hand in the upper dial shows remaining battery percentage.

Love this watch face. If you can make the watch hand transparent which not covering the data will be perfect. Thanks.

NIce watch face. Great color options. A ton of info at a glance and can be set as you wish.

I had zero problems customizing the watch face. Simple as following the instructions you provided and selecting the many (did I say many?) options available - at the Connect IQ site for the downloaded watch face. Thanks for taking the time to program this. I really like the watch face design, layout, and all the options to select from. Great job!

Just installed it on 935 with version 8 firmware on it. The bottom circle reads 'no gps', and I cannot customize the colors when I goto settings.

Why you guys just don't read the instructions and previous communication?! Everything was told 100-times already. ;) (a) You have to fetch GPS signal (your position) to calculate sunrise/sunset times. (b) You have to use either Garmin Connect or Garmin Express apps to alter the watch face settings.

Is it possible to show the climb floors?

Developer Reply
21 February 2018, mbell-SVK

Floors climbed is very inaccurate metrics, so I will probably not implement it. Would be rather useless.

Looks great but I cannot in my Fenix5X change the colours and options.

Developer Reply
16 February 2018, mbell-SVK

Yes, because you can't do that for any CIQ applications! :) You have to use either Garmin Connect (from smartphone) or Garmin Express (from desktop) apps to alter the watch face settings.

Do not manage to get it on my Fenix3HR I got it once and this face was really great but never got it again. Try to desinstall and then install again...

Developer Reply

Try to power cycle your watch (switch it off by long press of light button and then turn it on again). Also check how many apps slots you have available on your device. It would be helpful if you write what exactly happens when you try to install it.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
