Hi, please check the online manual for supported data fields. You will get the battery level in percent, body battery and also the remaining battery life in estimated duration time in hours/days. The estimated battery life time is calculated each time you toggle back to the watch face to provide the most accurate life time estimation (much better then the Garmin build in calculation).

Wooohooo! Finally magic dust is available for Epix Pro! I missed it dearly after switching from the Fenix! Thanks for the quick update!!!!

Best watch face. The sunrise and sunset time bug seems to be a bug of the Garmin OS. It's solved by restarting the watch.

Hi Chao, thanks for the feedback.

June 8, 2023 | Version 23.6.6

Best watch face. But the newest version has the sunrise and sunset times reset every few hours. So it is incorrect most of the time (unless right after an activity).

Developer Reply

Hi, thanks for your comment. This bug is under investigation. Please check for the latest firmware update on your side, thanks.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Stay tuned, the Epix series will be supported in a future version. But it will take some time to scale up the full features of the MagicDust watch face.

Full of faults. Cant delete it once installer

Developer Reply

Hi Raymond, to uninstall you have to select an other watch face previously as described in the manual of your device. It would be helpful when you can report the "faults" in a more detailed way that it is possible to support you. For a first introduction to the MagicDust watch face please check the 'Getting started' chapter of the online manual: Please remove or update your review, when you are more familiar with this watch face, thanks.

I don’t see the oxygen graph appearing on my fenix 6. Is it incompatible? I know it tracks it…

Developer Reply
March 16, 2023, TheMagician

Hi Oliver, thanks for your feedback. The watch face fully supports the oxygen history graph. Please enable the oxygen sensor on your F6 in the sensor settings. The graph is displayed at the top of the time font in form of small line segments. For best results enable the sensor to track the hole day (warning high battery drain).

Amazing watch face until it wasn’t. Having a hard time getting it back on my fenix 6x pro after update on 10/03/2023. Trying to figure out compatibility

Developer Reply

Hi Chris, with one of the last firmware updates from Garmin all CIQ watch faces did not load correctly @ the fenix 6 series. Garmin has recently updated the firmware and provid a fix to get the watch faces working. Please install the latest device firmware.

Eric Feist

It is the face that I keep going back to. It is very customizable and is able to show a lot of information. There is one recurring negative. You must turn on GPS every few days to keep the local information correct, such as temperature and sunrise/ sunset times.

Hi Eric, the lost GPS position is a firmware issue related to several Garmin devices at the moment. Please start a GPS supported activity to fix this problem manually.

Hi Hugo, for best support please write the feedback in your language.

It does not measure sleep with this scheme. It is problematic to measure walking.. There is no morning report.

Developer Reply
January 22, 2023, TheMagician

Hi Rici, thanks for the feedback. Watch faces simply display the internal sensor data of your device. This means that sleep tracking, activities or the morning report are not modified by a watch face at all. It seems that you are running a bad firmware version on your device or it is broken. Please contact Garmin for further support and please remove this bad review rating. Thanks!

very cool watchFace, but on my epix2 not refreshing HR. thx for fix

Developer Reply
January 5, 2023, TheMagician

Hi Daniel, thanks for your comment. The heart rate data field of the watch face is based on the device sensor data refresh rate. The sensor data is updated each minute in low power mode and during an activity or in high power mode each second. Additional information can be found in the online manual (heart rate):

January 2, 2023 | Version 23.0

Hello, the clock face is very cool, but is it possible to set one theme so that the colors don't change. And is it possible to set the shield with one data so that they also do not change?

Hi Marek, thanks for your feedback. All settings can be adjusted in the watch face settings directly @ your device or in the Connect IQ app. Additional information can be found here:

4 stars only ! I don't know where it is getting my weight from ! I have 2 apps, Alfit & Healthmate that measure my weight daily, but Magic Dust never agrees with them !

Developer Reply

Hi Ian, thanks for the feedback. Please check the online manual for additional information regarding the weight tracking ( The weight value is based on the user profile of your Garmin Connect account. If you sync your weigt from other platforms into your Connect profile the watch face will display the correct weight.

Great watch face but I have a F6 that supports recovery time but the field isn’t showing…

Developer Reply
October 6, 2022, TheMagician

Hi Oliver, thanks for the feedback. The recovery time is only available for a duration larger zero. If the recovery time is not available after a intensive training please contact me directly for additional support because the missing recovery time can't be reproduced on my side for the F6 series. Additional information can be found in the manual:

Must admit it took me a while to understand what to do as I'm not so young but after following the 'getting started' instructions I'm pretty much got it :) l love this wf it's just beatiful. I chose theme color neon and love it I whish the blue color in the progress bar would be same blue as in the data neon. Any way thank you and keep up the good work.
