Great watch face. Just wish the font wasn't so small on my Venu.

Very clean and easy to read. I would like the option to change the data point at the bottom. Currently only has battery % - would prefer the date.

Hi Ed! Thanks for the heads-up. I had actually implemented the configurability into the app already in November, but forgot to update the English version in the app store. The latest version (4.1.7) should allow you to change the data field into date.

October 19, 2019 | Version 3.1.2

Good. To be Great, I would rather have Date info instead Battery

Great suggestion, thanks. Take a look at the newest version where you can configure the contents of the data field.

I really like this watch face. Unique and fun! Maybe you can add Bahasa Indonesia language oneday. You are awesome

Excellent, this is what I need, to be out of control. Kind of.. ! But please give us the opportunity to edit the data field as I need to see the date. Thanks in advance!

Your wish was heard! Take a look at the newest version. A configurable data field there is.

October 3, 2019 | Version 3.1.2

I like the idea of having the approximate time ready. It's all I need to know. Simple, but enough.

Hello, great app.Thanks.Would it also be possible to rename viertel nach xx in viertel xx and corresponding viertel vor xx in dreiviertel xx?As it were in an OssiGDR mode (German)or as a new one

Thanks for the suggestion! There are now two German versions:

August 25, 2019 | Version 3.0.5

Simply the best.

August 20, 2019 | Version 3.0.4

Almost perfect. It's only missing the possibility of switching to another view where is added, keeping the same format but smaller font, day (number) and month (year wouldn't be necessary, IMO).

4 out of 5 stars because of Norwegian translation. 40min should be "ti over halv"(ten past half). Tried to update the Google sheet, so maybe it will change to the correct phrase. Also, it would be nice if there was a setting to choose an extra data field, showing e.g. messages or date.

Thanks for the update to the Google sheet! Now there are two Norwegian versions with slightly different translations: You can see the differences in translations in the new Google Sheet:

Not five stars only for the translation in Italian: at 15 to 10 pm I read "un quarto alle le dieci" instead of "un quarto alle dieci"

Thanks! You can improve translations by editing the Google Sheet at Or if you know how to submit pull requests via Github, the source code repository is

Ihana leppoisa lomakello! Ikinä ei ole kellon katsominen tuottanut näin paljon iloa. Kiiiitos tekijälle.

Thank you for your work ! This watchface is amazing ! Only issue : on my forunner 235 the text appears too big and is cropped on the sides (language is French for me)

May 16, 2019 | Version 3.0.0

Congratulations, great job! I am asking for a small correction in the translation into Polish. "In the afternoon" in Polish is "po południu" and not "po południa". Thanks :)

May 12, 2019 | Version 3.0.0

Not sure how much battery this uses, but seems to have sucked the life out of my old Vivoactive... nice watch though so thats a shame!

Developer Reply

Thanks, Blake for reporting a possible issue! There's nothing in the watch face code that should drain the battery, but I'll investigate. Have you ruled out all other possibilities of heavy battery use? Would you be willing to help to solve the issue?

May 11, 2019 | Version 2.1.2

Thanks a lot! The font size is perfect now! Only the battery status is a little bit to small...

May 9, 2019 | Version 2.0.10

Doesn't work on my 920XT. I can see the battery percentage at the bottom but the rest of the screen is blank.

Thanks for the report! It seems that anti-aliased custom fonts are not supported by 920XT. I found a related bug report: I have to drop support for 920XT until I can find the time to implement a workaround. Sorry.

I like it so! Clean, simple & smart :) Thanks+

Great watch face! Can you please enlarge the font? There is still a lot of space on my Fenix 5.

Developer Reply
May 2, 2019, samuelmr

I'll see what I can do. I'm trying to support as many devices and languages as possible, and since the text is created dynamically, it's a bit hard to estimate the best font size for all situations.

Nice watch face. But can you make the first letter in each word capital letters. It would been a lot better for me!

Hi, I like your watch face can I switch to another language on a forerunner 230?!

The watch app follows the system language of the watch. You should be able to change the system language: Menu ▶ Settings ▶ System ▶ Language.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
