Love this watchface, so many colours and settings, and all for free! Thank you very much!

I have to admit the watch face is beautiful... I installed it in my Vivoactive 3, somehow it consumed my battery live more than usual, in 24 hours it consumed 30% of battery, is it normal? Or is there any thing g that I can do to increase my battery live?

Thank you! If you use it with analog seconds hand 24h, 30% seems to be in line with what I've heard of Viviactive 3 so far. This is significantly more than on some other watch models, but I understand that the battery capacity of Vivoactive 3 is also lower than average. If you see that Time Flies drains battery significantly faster than other similar watch faces with always-on full-size seconds hand, please let me know through the 'Contact Developer', you might also want to check the relevant topic at For hints on extending battery life, please check NOTES on the download page (in What's New section). I just realized that power consumption is not discussed in, I'm going to add it there soon.

Ever since I got my Fenix 3 HR on release I've been after a watch face that had analogue, digital in a small but readable size, show my step count, and could display the current HR. All this in a minimalist package. Only now in mid-2018 have I discovered this one, doing everything as I desired it. Very glad to have finally found it. The watch face I envisaged when purchasing this device.

The best watch face with super duper customizations. NOTICE: During fisrt installation on vivoactive 3 if everything goes wrong remember to SHUT DOWN THE WATCH. Then everything works as it is supposed to. Great piece of work!!!

Hello, one issue for me. Step counter not syncing with app. How to correct? Thanks in advance for your time.

Developer Reply
June 15, 2018, Vgfsyhcxft

Hello, I'm sorry but your message does not provide enough information to diagnose the problem. What step counter are you referring to and which app? To resolve issues, usually it takes a few rounds of questions and answers to narrow down the problem. If you really need help, please use the 'Contact Developer' link instead.

YK Time Flies watch face is nice and neat, it looks like a real analog watch on my fenix 5. I would like to request to add an option for temperature. Thanks

Developer Reply

Thank you! No promises, but the temperature is under consideration.

Very nice watch face for the Vivoactive 3. Thanks for the great work! One feature request: now the fast update and the dynamic hand change(to lattice) seem to be only activated by gesture, can you add an option so they can also be activated by tapping on the screen(and thus turning on the backlight)? Sometimes my hand movement is just not enough to be registered as the right gesture Thanks again for the great watch face!

Thanks you! I wish I could do this, but this is not up to me. User interaction with watch faces has been limited to wrist gesture by Garmin.

Time Flies is the best analog watch face, bar none. I've tried many others, and Time Flies is the least cartoony looking on my Vivoactive 3. It's also highly customizable and, so far, has very little battery draw. This should honestly be the standard watch face that Garmin uses.

June 13, 2018

Fantastic watch face. Easy to customise and with many features. One little "bug" I noticed is the calorie count on Vivoactive 3 does not match the one reported by the watch face. Still an excellent watch face highly recommended. Thank you !

Developer Reply
June 13, 2018, Vgfsyhcxft

Thank you! Are you referring to total calories or active calories? Total calories reported by this watch face are taken directly from the watch, so I think it's unlikely they would be different than in the widget. For the discrepancy on the active calories, please have a look at, topic "BMR fix" near the bottom.

Hallo, nettes Display. Aber warum ist die Farbe Gelb eher Gold/Orange? Das ist mir bei verschiedenen Displays aufgefallen das Gelb nicht annähernd Gelb angezeigt wird. Bei den Garmin Displays ist das doch auch möglich! MfG TZone

Developer Reply
June 13, 2018, Vgfsyhcxft

Hallo. This is a consequence of how Garmin defined the 16 color palette and associated color names in their Connect IQ development toolkit. This legacy was carried over to the models that support more colors. Another point is that the same palette color might look different on different watch models.

Really nice watch face, has plenty of options but not so many that it's confusing. The colour themes is a great idea too, switch colours without having to fiddle with a million settings for every little thing.

A very neat watch face yet not easy to be customized. It took over 1h to make the face look like expected: 1. A Manual should follow the most up-to-date switches and give the precisely described pictures of setttings. It is certainly not an intuitive one. 2. Customization made in Garmin Express requires continuous connecting and disconnecting usb interface to see the results. Very time consuming and annoying 3. No Temperature switch in 4 optional fields.

Developer Reply

That's why I don't recommend using Garmin Express for changing the settings. With Garmin Connect Mobile you see the results immediately and everything becomes much more intuitive, I hope. Maintaining a detailed manual as you suggest could easily become more work than maintaining the watch face itself.

Love it and all the customization! Only question... why does the step counter icon show a dogs paw? Kind of weird... Is it possible to show just a standard 2 footsteps?

Developer Reply
June 7, 2018, Vgfsyhcxft

Thank you! That's because it is difficult to draw the 2 shoe prints of this size so that it is immediately obvious what they are, unless you already know what they are supposed to be. It is possible to change the icon, but then maybe people will ask what these 2 little exclamation marks mean? :)

Best face I've tried so far.. Is it normal that heart rate value is lagging a bit, seems to update with quite a delay? Otherwise superb!!

Developer Reply
June 6, 2018, Vgfsyhcxft

Thanks! The HR option field by default is updated once a minute, but this also depends on the watch model. Even if the face refreshes the HR field once a minute, some older watches only support HR readings at longer intervals. However, on the newer models (starting from fenix 5), it is possible to have the HR field updated more frequently, if you enable the setting 'Fast updates on gesture'. When this is set, moving your wrist will temporarily make the option fields refresh every second for about 10 seconds. Note that this setting will also affect some other fields (e.g. steps, distance, floors, etc) and is likely to increase the battery drain.

Others have said it, but I have to say it again... Forget the other analog watch faces. This is the one. I have downloaded dozens and dozens and this is the watch face you will come to love. It has everything you could ask for: Step Count Heart Rate Month Day Date Digital Time Altitude Notification Icon with count (that disappears at 0) Bluetooth icon Battery Icon appears and preset level with percentage Hidden (not really but you have to know what to look for) gauges I use for step progress and battery level. All displayed on a clean, easy to read, easy to see, watch face. I suggest using the following colors for the gauges: Dark Red background with white gauge. I also use orange numbers in a different font and tapered hands. I wish I could include a photo of my setup. This face is simply the best analog face you can get.

Simply AMAZING! It cannot be is the best watch face by far... with the last improvement, the only pending thing will be to colour the Goal line in the DB without colouring the DB frame...meaning to split the options...for the rest, just UNBEATABLE !! Thank you for the amazing work

Developer Reply
May 30, 2018, Vgfsyhcxft

Thank you for the encouragement :) About the color for the marker line in the DBox, the problem is that each color theme is limited by design to 16 elements, so I had to pick one of them and thought the frame color would be the best choice. But thinking again, this may not be so with the line style graph if the same color is used for face and DBox backgrounds and for DBox frame .. need to think of some other solution in such case.

May 29, 2018

It's very nice. Minor things: - add the option to color some icons. For instance I like the heart to be red. Would add a bit more flavor to your WF. - possible to add the VA3 Default font or is it already there? Thanks
