I absolutely love this watch face! I've been using it for several months and it has everything I need and is very customizable! Unfortunately, my watch battery died and I have not been able to get this face to work again. Now I really appreciate having had it even more. I'll keep trying to get it back. I suggest you try it for yourself!

Really like this watch face! But help! I can't figure out how to clear the notification alert

You can use the Garmin notifications widget to clear your notifications, or you can clear them on your phone. The watch face only reports the number and is not responsible for managing your notifications. You need to do that outside of the watch face.

Excelente la pantalla del reloj se puede ver claramente todo lo que necesito

July 21, 2019

Tried a number of watch faces on my 235 but keep coming back to this one. Time, heart rate, steps, date and bat life what more do you need.

July 21, 2019

Nice App. Wondering why my temperature is showing incorrectly...

Developer Reply
July 21, 2019, HermoT

It uses built-in temperature sensor and is not linked to a weather service. It is well known that body temperature affects the reading.

Great design. However, isn't it possible to change the clock to the 24 hour type? Like, so that it doesn't says 2 p.m. but 14:00? Thanks

Change the clock/time format in your device settings to 24 hour. ;-)

Great watch face with many options. Clean and simple. Tried a few others but ended up back with this one! Would be nice if temperature display showed in Celsius (when that's your system preference).

Developer Reply

That is exactly how NoFrills works: uses the system preference of units.

Color changes does not apply for vivoactive 3 music. Also wish temp and distance could be centigrade and kilometers, respectively. Awsome watch face btw

Developer Reply

Don’t try and set the theme at the same time you apply color changes. The theme setting is just a way to reset the colors, and should be set and saved individually, and only then afterwards you can apply color changes.

Greetings, awesome watchface. Moved to it recently. Have one question though - is it possible to count steps in thousands and hundreds to preserve space and refresh less often, like 3.5K.

Developer Reply
July 16, 2019, HermoT

Thanks for the review. The shorter display will make no difference to the number of refreshes internally. It will actually cost more in processing power and thus unnecessarily reduce the battery.

By far my favorite watchface, though I'd love to see temperature added somewhere if possible!

Developer Reply
July 16, 2019, HermoT

Due to lack of free quality weather web services, this is not going to happen. Supported devices are capable of displaying the built-in temperature as a configurable data field in the NoFrills settings.

Really pleased with this app. It has everything I need. Easy to set up and make adjustments. Love the water horizon line showing through the big bold numbers as an instant progress guide.

I really love this watch face as it's very customisable, however, I find that the step counter doesn't count in real-time like the watch faces by Garmin. Perhaps this is a big that can be fixed.

Developer Reply

Hi, this is the way the Garmin firmware works. Nothing that third party app developers can do about this. You can confirm with other watch faces.

I really love this watch face, very beautiful face and has good datas. But, is it possible to put the temperature field on the screen?

Developer Reply
July 13, 2019, HermoT

Only the built-in temperature on supported devices is available. You have to select that from the NoFrills setting “Data to display under clock”.

Love this watch face but can’t seem to change the icon colours for the battery status, Bluetooth, Alarm and messages despite changing them to different colours and then saving.

Developer Reply
July 12, 2019, HermoT

Do not set the theme at the same time when trying to change the colors of other components. The theme setting should be set and saved individually and is only a mechanism to reset the device to the basic themes before changing the other elements.

It's pretty, works fine in 99% of the time, but I think, I might be wrong, because I really use it for mtb a lot, like everyday, and I think with this interface the battery charge reduce a bit.

Developer Reply

Compare it to other ConnectIQ watch faces. You will be surprised at how economic NoFrills actually is compared to those. Any ConnectIQ watch face will by design consume more battery than the built-in stock watch faces. This is because the built-in faces run on a dedicated chip not available to third party app developers.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
