A watch face for the modern ages. </p><p></p><p></p><p>Note .. re the 'Error Handler' user setting in Garmin Connect Mobile. If set, HR Lite will disregard any (really) low HR readings that are below the set 'Error Handler' value. It is not related to your RHR at all. Default is 0 and all HR values are accepted. If it is set .. any HR readings LOWER than that number will be disregarded by HR Lite.</p>

Text is crisp on my Vivoactive HR. All data fields seem to be accurate. If I wanted to request features, I would request probably options to colorize the fields individually; remove the steps data field (I do like the graphic for the foot though). I was using simply late for a few weeks thinking nothing could top it but the simplicity of this watch face is hard to pass up.Great work.

Watchface is very elegant and informative ... only the inactivity status is not displayed .... please absolutely change!

This app is perfect in its simplicity and in how it presents information. I wanted a watch face that presented fundamental data without cluttering my screen or appearing too "kitchy". You've accomplished it very well. Thank you.

Thanks for the review. This was the first thing I developed in Connect IQ and still the watch face that I use daily. It does what I needed it to do.

Please help.. just downloaded the app and like A lot about it except, 1. heart rate function does not sync with watch heart rate reading. Specifically, my heart rate on the Garman watch is from 2 to 10 beats off from the watch face. Can you explain or clarify? 2. What does the number on the bottom right section by the downward facing arrow signify? 3. What does the number to the far right of the battery signify? Thanks very much. Can't even believe the app creator actually response to comments. Really great

Question 1, not sure what the first question is about, but the number you see on the left (by the heart) is your last HR value as determined by the Vivoactive HR. It may be up to 2 minutes delayed as a watch face cannot show in real time like an application can (ie like my app HR Always). Maybe send me a note if needed via the contact developer link on the right side of this page and I will try to help you on that one. Question 2 .. the number by the down arrow is your minimum HR value for the day (during the time the watch face is running). It compares every HR value to get that number. Question 3 .. that is more of an error corrector, the watch face will not allow a minimum HR reading below that number. Default is 0 and accepts all readings. I set mine to 37 (my minimum HR value ever hit) .. as the VAHR has told me that my HR has hit 25 which is just wrong.

Great watch face, simply the best I ever used. Please can you increase the time and the date digits a little bit?

That is always an issue. For me I would like the steps to be bigger. I will see what I can do .. but I am not going to move things around very much to accomplish something like this. I will see if I can make the size of them a bit bigger given the space that I have.

Very good watch face. And one of the only, if not the only, to display lower heart rate for the day and not only for the last 4 hours.

Thank you for the nice review. Re the Minimum HR value .. most (probably almost all) Connect IQ watch faces will use a Garmin function to get the minimum HR value, thus the 4 hour time, just like the HR widget. I compare every valid HR value vs the current minimum to get your lowest of the day. Like you .. I just wanted to know.

Thank you .. I used it for several months before releasing it, and is one of my favorite projects I have done.

Great watchface. Shows me everything I'd ever want to know... except perhaps active calories. This face keeps me from having to swipe from screen to screen to find the info I want.

Thanks .. I tried to make it usable without too much data on the screen. Oh .. I don't do calories of any type, so you will not see calories on my applications.

Thanks. I like this new face. It has almost every detail. It would be great if weather is incorporated. Love it!

Due to screen real estate .. I cannot see any items being added, no matter what they are. That is one thing I will not do is put in more items on the screen. That seems to be a very common theme on Watch Faces .. but I will not go there as I believe it lessens the experience by making things harder to read.

Love the design. As I stated on FB, it is precise and clear. Great work to the designers. If there is just one - Thanks Kevin. If there were more thanks to your team players. Geo ...named PG Mark on FB

Nice watch face and easy to read design. Was looking for watch, steps and battery life and this fit the bill. The HR is an added bonus since that wasn't something I thought I wanted or needed on the screen but now don't want to lose that feature. Great work!

Very nice watchface, I love it from the start. I would really appreciate, if you can add 24 hour support. Thank you!

Simple and elegant, but sometimes triple grid in clock number make its harder to read the time

This has been resolved in newer versions. I too fought with it, it was cool looking but not so functional. I will always take comments in the reviews to heart and see if I can make HRLite better. Thank you for the review.
