That's because you can customize it to your liking.

This it's ALMOST the best watch face I have ever seen on my Fênix 3 HR! The only thing I miss are the dynamic hands when I look at my watch. Thank you!

21 July 2017 | Version 5.91

My new favorite on F5S, great work! Huge customization possibilities. Donation on the way. :) Missing "do not disturb" icon and mainly better config options for bottom sub-face, so I will be able to exchange sunrise time by climbed floors or activity minutes once this info will be available. :) Using it with steps graph on.

18 July 2017 | Version 5.91

Very good watch: it is clear and full of information One question: how can you customize it ? I cannot see that. Or is it not possible? Thanks

You can use Garmin Connect Mobile app to change the watch face settings: Menu-Garmin Devices-(your connected watch)-Connect IQ Apps-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.

does anyone actual now where i install this from i have downloaded it and it sais installed but where do i get it from to make as my screen

09 July 2017 | Version 5.91

Dobrý den, nejlepší watchface na storu. Jenom mám malý problém - jak nastavim do horního malého ciferniku zase zpět váhu? Chci tam mít baterii včetně arc symbolu a dole váhu uživatele. V současné době se mi na spodnim okraji objevuje cilový počet kroků. Díky za radu

Ahoj ;), zobrazenie hmotnosti si vies nastavit cez watch face settings. Najlepsie cez Garmin Connect aplikaciu: Menu-Garmin Devices-(Tvoje pripojene hodinky)-Connect IQ Apps-Watch Faces-HandsFive-Settings. Hodinky musia byt pripojene cez BT k telefonu a telefon musi byt pripojeny na internet.

Great watch face. I'm using on For runner 235, is there a way to get a second hand?

Developer Reply
08 July 2017, mbell-SVK

Thanks! On Forerunner 235 you can have seconds hand only in high power mode which is invoked by wrist gesture (it lasts for 10 seconds). You can activate this feature via watch face settings.

06 July 2017 | Version 5.8

like the face and features but keeps going back to defaults, no other watch face i have does this so dont blame Garmin. i have fenix 5x running latest update etc. still like this as my day to day face

Occasional resets of settings to the default values is due to the bug in F5x firmware and most of the custom watch faces are affected. Please, read the Garmin forum to be informed.

04 July 2017 | Version 5.8

By far my fave watch face. I have an F5x and would love, when you had the time, to see an updated version with some of its novel features. This is not just a face its a piece of art once you set it the way you like. Also I believe the F5 firmware has been updated so no more reverting to defaults :) Miss the cog wheel though, reminds me of the tourbillion that was on my Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Tourbillion before it was lost (I suspect stolen, I don't leave things that expensive lying around). If you could please please PLEASE add something like that to the F5x rendition of the watch (does not have to be the old cog, a tourbillion would trump if possible ;) I believe you ran into memory issues with the 3 and 3 HR which shouldn't be a problem for the F5) along with any genius ideas your grandpa may have had it would be so greatly appreciated. I honestly had teething issues with all the settings being a mechanical watch guy but now that I have it down I absolutely love it and have actually never changed my watch face after getting this one. Your work is art and I'm sure both the community and myself are indebted to you and show you the up most respect. In closing, thank you, need I say more? PS the loss/theft of my Maurice is why I bought a Fenix 5x to begin with, thought I wold branch out and own at least one sports/GPS watch and I must admit part from pure aesthetics (not saying the 5x is ugly its actually beautiful) I do find it hard to take off and find myself wearing my automatics and manual winds less and less I know i have said it a plethora of times but thank you for taking the time, pun slightly intended. Kind Regards, Nick

Thanks a lot for your nice words, Nick! I really appreciate it and I'm glad you like my watchface. Yes, the cog wheel was removed in order to free some runtime memory for the other features on the older devices (like Fenix 3). I will try to find some way how to return the cog wheel back at least for Fenix 5 family watches. ;)

Supet watchface :-) Uz chybi jen barometr :-) (FR935)

28 June 2017 | Version 5.8

could this show darksky weather too?

27 June 2017 | Version 5.8

I like this watch face. Everything I want in one neat display. I would like to see the data in front of the hands to prevent the occasional blocking. Thank you for your hard work.

23 June 2017 | Version 5.8

Really like this watch face. Easy to configure thru Garmin Express. A lot of options. Has everything I want in a watch and is well organized.

23 June 2017 | Version 5.8

I like it but "Actual HR" doesn't seem to work on my Forerunner 235 and unfortunately we can't configure the "Lower Sub-face"

18 June 2017 | Version 5.8

I really like this watchface and appreciate all the work that went into creating such a feature packed display. I'm having two problems that I can't seem to fix..... 1) the face keeps reverting back to default settings (not my custom colors and data field choices) at random times. 2) It displays 1 email in the notification spot even after I've acknowledged all new emails, so I can never see the other data (min & max heart rate) that I chosen to display there. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Thanks! Reverting to default setting happens to all custom watch faces on F5, it is the issue of current firmware. I can not do anything about that, just to wait for Garmin fix. Regarding notifications, go to the notification widget (original Garmin one) and clear all your notifications.

15 June 2017 | Version 5.8

Please make HandsSix for Fenix 5x with 1 Hz mode configurable main second hand. That would be great!

14 June 2017 | Version 5.8

Does not indicate heart rate in forerunner 735XT

In order to get the HR values displayed you have to enable "Show HR" in watch face settings.

09 June 2017 | Version 5.8

Great watchface! Good design and lot of options

08 June 2017 | Version 5.8

Amazing new version. Can you add the option to select distance on the steps field? We can have steps, distance and calories on the same space.( steps remain on the circular spot). Thank you for your work.

03 June 2017 | Version 5.7

very nice wf,looking forward to more colours for 5x&shape for 240x240.

01 June 2017 | Version 5.6

The main reason behind changing from NoFrills to HandsFive that only the latter know Active Calorie as a measure to be displayed. My purpose to get rid of as many widgets as I can and Calories is a candidate. But I realise that the active calorie number of HandsFive is not in line with the active calories of my F3HR, it is typically appr 20% more. How does Hands5 get this number?

Hi, it is not possible to get the active calories within CIQ, hence I have to compute it. I've used Harris-Benedict equation for resting metabolic rate (RMR), where also the calories required to digest the food are included. RMR is then subtracted from the total calories, which is available within CIQ and the result corresponds to your active calories (everything what you burn on top of the calories amount needed to keep your body alive). This is the formula: ActiveC = TotalC - (hh*60 + mm)*RMR*k/(24*60), where "hh" (hour), "mm" (minute) and "RMR" is function of your weight, height, age and gender and "k" is a tuning constant. I have usually very precise results, the difference between my computed value and what GCM is showing is less than 5%. If you have bigger difference, be sure to set correctly your weight, height and age in profile settings!

Top Watch Face! Best ever!

Glad watch is back. Working perfectly on Fenix 5X. Like new mail notice. Bring back the GEAR!!!! Long live the gear! - Rod, was missing this face.

Very nice watchface, but on May 26 it stopped and crashed on several watches for the whole day (even after reboot). May 27 it worked again. Very strange behaviour.
