Hi, thanks for your feedback but I've bad news for you. Due to some hardware restrictions of the approach S60 this watch is not supported. (Connect IQ SDK 3.0 support is missing) Please check the hardware requirements of this watch face in the app-info description.

Hi Yohanes, thanks for your comment. In the SDK simulator there are no issues with the fr 645. Try the following setup: Font 'Digital', enable the theme 'BlackDawn', disable the sonsor graphs and the random themes. This will be a great setup to start with. Have fun.

Installed on my Vivoactive 3 music. The only settings option is apply. The data is not customizable and is somewhat overwhelming. A serious issue is that there is no option to remove this watch face.

Tested just to see, but now it is my favorite It is nice, easy, clear and simple, I love it. Just a little thing to check is the clarification of the settings, but very good work, Thank you

Hi Tom, thanks for your feedback. At the moment the connect iq mobile app isn't synchronizing the settings of the watch face correctly. The issue is forwarded to the Garmin support. A workaround will be available in the next update of the watch face (v0.9.4).

05 February 2019 | Version 0.9.3

I've tried loading this twice and it totally freaked out my watch. It's a mess of data and it just randomly cycles through themes every 2 secs no matter what settings I change. Many fields are overlapping as well. I am using a VM 3 music

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Please update your watch to the newest firmware. If the ploblems still exist contact me directly for further support.

love this face, my only bug bear, is the fact, that there isn't any provisions for the day in the date setting.

Hi Kenneth, thanks for your feedback. Please use the garmin connect mobile app to open the watch face settings to edit the date formate. Currently you can change the order of the day and month numbers. If you have any suggestion feel free to contact me.

I love this watch face. It displays all the data I need and use. And it looks great! My vote is for the best watch face available for the Garmin Fenix 5X Plus! It should come pre loaded in the Garmin watches, it's that good. Garmin could pay the developer for the rights to use it as a factory preset option that could be customized from the watch face option controls. For me it's much better than the watch faces that come preloaded on the Fenix 5X Plus. I looked at every single watch face available for my watch and this was the best for me. It works flawlessly for me. It took me a bit to figure out that I needed to download the Garmin Connect App onto my cell phone and custom configure the watch face options via the Magic Dust control panel loaded into the Garmin Connect App. I'm not really a tech person, I only have a cheap service by the minute cell phone and I'm not good with apps. I'm often out of cell range with no service. You might say that I'm hesitant about using electricity and the wheel. Suspicious of anything more than stone knives and bear skins technology. This fantastic watch face has elevated me into the space age!

Awesome, I recommend it very much, thank you very much for sharing it.

Awesome watch face, been using it for a few months now and is by far the best in the IQ store. Is there any chance to adapt it for the standard fenix 5S?

Developer Reply

Hi Andy, thanks for your feedback. This watch face only supports watch displays with a minimum resolution of 240 x 240 pixel. Sorry, the fenix 5S is not supported.

Hey there, this is getting out of hand with all the fields and graphs, is there a user manual? I'm only half joking.,, ;) Still my most used watch face. Thanks!

Ya just quit looking for watch faces. BIG MISTAKE! I have no idea how long this watch face has been around! Took gander a couple of days ago, -just like I did when I got my fenix 5. Surprise, Surprise. THIS WATCH FACE IS GREAT! “TheMagician”, do some more. We’ll pay!!

The "Richard Mille" of Watch Faces! Thanks so much for this amazingly interactive Watch Face that looks like it was conceived by a design professional with an emphasis on readability, utility, functionality, aesthetics and customization. Your design "gives life to" and completes the essence of the device as a smart watch/fitness tracker. Consequently, IMO this WF provides the most aesthetically pleasing and functional design of all Fenix 5 watch faces. Many WF's are strong in some areas of their design and weaker in others, but this WF achieves excellence in all areas. The face is complemented by an extremely attractive font with clear and readable indicators. The selective use of colors with restraint tactfully facilitate readability and convey function without being garish - absolutely brilliant A+! I have removed every other third-party or GARMIN watch face from my device.

Ganz gut aber wenn ich einige Einstellungen speichere werden die nicht übernommen. Bei aktiviere farbdesign zb geht der regler immer wieder zurück. Habe eine forerunner 645 Music.

Hi, diese Einstellungen sind so gewollt. Damit hast du immer die Möglichkeit deine eigenen Farbeinstellungen zu konfigurieren. Themes werden nur übernommen wenn der Togglebutton gesetzt ist. Die Theme Farben überschreiben dann deine eigenen Einstellungen und diese können von dir wieder geändert werden. Damit kannst du Themes als Vorlage verwenden. Seit der letzten Version kannst du deine eigenen Farben auch als Theme speichern und auswählen (v0.8.5).

Sehr schönes Watchfaces aber seit der Benutzung sehr hohes Stresslevel, Nachts keine Erholungsmomente. Letzte Nacht keine Schlafdaten. Akkuintensiv trotz Ausschaltung der Sekunden. Schade

Hallo Gisbert, dieses Watchface hat keinen Einfluss auf die Datenaufzeichnung der Uhr sondern zeigt diese nur an. Sollte hier etwas nicht stimmen, überprüfe ob ein Firmware-Update helfen kann. Die Akkulaufzeit werde ich analysieren und ein Update bereitstellen. Danke für deine Rückmeldung.

Great watch face, unpredictable! Unique , thanks you
