Before update the watch face, did you completely remove previous version of watch face? Garmin’s automatic update not always working properly. If not: remove completely watch face through Garmin Connect and install it back from Garmin Store. If you did all correct but watch face not working, please connect your device to your PC and memory card, go to folder Garmin/Apps/Logs and send me error log file by e-mail (click “Contact developer” link) to find the problem.

Muchas gracias

Quite good. But the discs take a lot of space and are of course not that quick readable like digital numbers (and they would give more room). But a lot of fields, I like this.

Thanks for review. Active Rotor positioning as analog watch face. Rotating disks – main idea of this watch face. It’s normal, if you had in use, for long time, digital watch and after pass to analog, definitely some period of time will be needed for adaptation. In one-two days of usage, you will read current time same fast and easy as before with digital watch.

Nice watch. Can you, please, fix the HR field on fenix 3 HR?

Developer Reply
24 September 2018, Dmytryi

Thanks for the stars. It’s strange, in API documentation, your device has to support current function, in same time declared, that HR function available for CIQ not less than 2.1.0. Anyhow, I’ll find solution and fix HR shortly.

Great great watchface, can you fix hr for fenix3 hr? It doesn't work. Can you add altitude? Amazing work anyway, thank you

Very good and clean. I just wish the seconds would constantly run the entire time. Is there any way to fix that?

Developer Reply

Thanks for comment. From the very beginning of developing Active Rotor, idea was to keep seconds constantly. But Garmin set certain limits for this function to save memory and battery. If we are talking about classical way to show seconds in digits or seconds hand – all ok, but in case of Active Rotor – rotating disc with seconds, whatever I tried, after 2 minutes it got error out of memory and stuck… Due to this I’ve made it works while in “power mode” (not sleep). Also, you can select option “always show seconds disc”. It will be shown always but will be frozen while device in “sleep mode”.

What a great concept for a watch face! I really like how this looks on my Fenix 5X. Excellent customer service as well. I emailed the developer about an Imperial units version and received an email back within hours saying he was not home to make the new update and would update the following day. As promised the following day the updated version was ready for download! Amazing!!

Great and original watchface, congratulations and thanks to you ! Maybe in future upgrades the possibility of inverting black and white (foreground and background) and add some colors...

Looks good, interesting idea, maybe with a little visual optimization, over time, it will become a great watch face. Good job!
