Sadly, now totally hosed on Fenix 5x. It worked for awhile, up until this update, but now the watch face selector on the watch just shows a IQ emblem with an asterisk. Can't load the face.

UPDATE: WAS MADE SOME CHANGES IN CPF_v12 TO TRY TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE. Please let me know if now works. OLD RESPONSE: In CPF_v9 there was detected an error that in some graphics could produce an zero division that could hang the watchface. That was solved in CPF_v10 (just a few hours later). Please be sure you are using CPF_v10 at least. If that dont solve the problem. Maybe some data in your watch could be making some other bug. Maybe if you unintall it completly and reinstall using default values for all parameters could work again. Then try to change one parameter each time in orther to detect witch one are making the app hangs... Hope that this helps. If you find wich parameter is causing the fault please let me know, to try to investigate it.

En el reloj dual falta poner 4:30 horas de diferencia, porque solo admite 4 o 5, por ejemplo en Nueva Delhi en la India son 4 horas 30 con respecto a España, etc.

Ahora en CPF_v9 El "Dual time offset" se puede poner en minutos. Ej. Para indicar +5 horas, debes poner "300" min (5hx60min). Now DualTime offset can be set now in minutes. Example. To set +5 hours you must set "300" min. (5hx60min)

Fenix 5x user here: It works on my 5x now. However, if I switch Param 4, 5, or 6 to a long format option (such as sunrise), the face switches to the Garmin default analog face. Switching these params back to default and the face works again. So there is a workaround. Thanks so much, great face.

I am great to hear that now is Working on your fénix 5x. In additions to new features, I have implement some data validations that could make that now Works in your case. I have try to set sunrise and sunset hour for param05 and param06 in garmin simulator for fenix 5x and is workking fine. But I have see that I forget to add sunset hour to param06. I will add in next versión.

Love the large fonts which makes the watch face easy to read when lighting isn’t great. Also appreciate the design choices and layout of the 2 graphs. Works fine on Felix 5

Thank you for your report. I like to hear that is working on Fenix5 as some fenix 5x user are reporting that dosent work. I must say that in garmin simulator is working on all Fenix 5 models.

Just installed on Fenix6 and working fine. Thnx! Would it be possible to add option for 'body battery' as one of the parameters? Other suggestion is to reduce the number of digits for the altitude.

How does the GPS refresh time work? Does it need to be connected to phone? What time it start to sync if choose once a day? Is it possible to change default to the correct chosen value to avoid confusion.

Developer Reply

Sun Rise and Sun Set hour are calculated internaly using to current date and GPS position. GPS refresh time opton is the period of time to consult de GPS to recalculate sun rise and sun set hour. - If you dont change your position often, you can let that option in once a day and sun rise and sun set hour are calculated at 12:00 each day. - If you are traveling and your position is different in a shorter period of time you can reduce the period of GSP reads to recalculate Sun Rise and Sun Set hour. The default value is once a day. By using watch GPS possition is not neccesary connect to internet to calculate that hours.

I tried it and I like it. Works fine with my FR235. I like to see the step goal. Would be great if you could arrange this. It's quite easy to customize. Maybe it would be easier to see the status of each field. If it's called 'default', I need the list you have written down here. If the default state would be already named, it would be transparent for the user. Maybe just for me ;) Anyways, I like it. Well done!

I don't have that device to try but in garmin simulator works fine. Be sure that you have your device updated to the last sofware version available If the fault continues. Maybe could be a problem with storage space or with memory. If you have many other apps, widgets, or Watch faces installed, try to uninstall some of them and then try to reinstall CPF. Some people with similar problem have solved it installing from "Connect IQ Store" APP. I wait that this helps.

If the WF is executed correctly and when applying some change in the configuration it is reset. Could be that the device dont have enough memory to continue executing the program. Maybe other programs, widgets, are using a lot of memory and there is not enough left for CPF WF. You can try to uninstall some other widget to try if that solves the problem.

Sorry to hear that. Other users are using that WF fine in Fenix6x pro. In the info from the WF you can see attached a photo of a Fenix 6 playing "Control Panel Face". Maybe you need restart your watch. Other user with a similar problem solved it instaling the WF from Garmin “connect iq store” APP.

Thank you for your efforts. However, the letters of time and information under it overlap om my fr45. Maybe it's because the fr45's screen is small.

Developer Reply
January 20, 2020, almaca

The Garmin default fonts are different/change from device to other (also screen resolution). As, I try to use the more bigest Font posible for a better visualization of each parameter in some devices could be Little overlaps. CPF calculate dinamically the position of each element in base to the the screen resolution and Font size provided by garmin. But that information is not very accurate in all devices so that overlaps could occur. I have attached one imge of how FR45 simulator runs “Control Panel Face”.

"Thank you for your report. I have made some changes in CPF_v6 that could resolve that issue. Please let me know if so. " Thank you for trying but the issue exists. When I select the face in the watch, everything looks fine, when I apply the face, the stock Garmin analogue face is used. Fenix 5x.

Thank you for trying it to again. As in Garmin Simulator works fine, I think that maybe could be a problem with storage space or with memory usage in your device. If you have many other apps, widgets, or Watch faces installed, try to uninstall some of them and then try to reinstall CPF. Please let me Know I that solves the problem.

This watchface gets better and better, really. No maybe still some tweaks here and there in the design and then this watchface is one of the best here. Good readable, a lot of information, a lot of preferences for the user to choose: cool stuff! Congrats!

Would be great but after working for a day, the face switched to the default Garmin analogue face. If I try to pick this face again, from the watch, the picker shows this face but applies the Garmin analogue face. It was working fine for a day, then this AM, this issue. Also, though already using the face for a day, Garmin IQ insisted on re-downloading this face, then applied the mentioned Garmin analogue face. Please fix as its a great face - Fenix 5x Sapphire.
