Warning! This is supposedly free app leaves the words DEMO MODE plastered above the time until you pay for it. They call it a 'donation' for which you received a code which takes the 'DEMO MODE' off apparently. Apart from that underhanded ploy it would be a great watch face.

September 8, 2018 | Version 2.14-upd3

Best replacement for stock watch screen on Forerunner 235. All the needed info is there and it looks professional, sleek and clean.

February 25, 2018 | Version 2.14

Hello! I payed for the serial number so I can take the “Demo Mode” off and put a custom word and it did not function. What else I need to do to have my custom word on the secreen?

Good as a watch face but should be free to get rid of demo mode and display date. Please make this app free.

December 26, 2017 | Version 2.13

Love it, but it says DEMO MODE at the top. How do I get rid of that? I didn't see a purchase option???

Pls. see app description

August 8, 2017 | Version 2.12

thanks for all of your efforts in implementing the 1hz features for the 935/Fenix 5 watches. it sounds like it was a lot of work in figuring out what could be done within the power/time budget constraints. thanks for coming up with a solution that gives us new features for the newer watches. it's great to have more frequent heart rate updates and it appears there is no major battery penalty to get this more frequent HR information. great work!

thanks very much, now the seconds works. Is it possible to make the % of battery a little bigger ? and to make a choice if it would show the Icon and/or the %. That would be very nice. Thanks very much for your work.

Thanks for feedback. Pls. use contact developer link for feature requests and bug reports. I am reading my mail more often than feedback. Also more info is usually needed and I can't ask that via review comments.

Hey, I love your watch face and I will pay the 2,5 €. But I don´t want to use PayPal. And now?

July 6, 2017 | Version 2.08

Recent updates have made this my permanent go-to digital watch face. i love the upgrades enabled by the 2.3.1SDK to bring 1hz seconds and HR to the 935/F5 watches. the more frequent updates make the HR data much more useful since it is in real time. (previously the 1-2 minute updates didn't make the data very useful and it required a button push to the widget to see what was really going on with my HR) I've gotten several complements from strangers/friends who like the appearance of this watch face. the time is large very easy to read, and the ancillary information of date, steps, HR, notifications, etc. are easily readable even with a quick glance. the face has a certain grace to it, in spite of the big font since it is well laid out and all balanced in terms of layout. Thanks for a great effort!

Awful. You are forced to pay through non secure channels if you want more than "demo mode".

If paypal is not secure enough for you, then keep looking elsewhere. Have an sunny day : )

Great watch face for my Forerunner 230. Well worth paying the $2 for it to get the demo mode removed from the face. (Was going to pay for it anyway since it was more go-to watch face so I think it is well worth supporting Jan on it!) keep up the great work!!

Thanks for review, pls. use contact developer link for new feature requests. I would like to ask additional questions related to this.

June 14, 2017 | Version 2.0

i'm sorry to see that the developer has had to revert to a trial/demo model after getting hammered by multiple low reviews for the same version, not reporting requests/fixes via the proper channel of using the "Contact developer" link and/or not recognizing that some things that don't work are due to firmware issues from Garmin. Developer: don't be discouraged. you are doing great work. i hope people are willing to pay for your services noting that you are diligent and trying, as much as possible, to serve the Garmin community. (i can only imagine that it is crazy to meet so many different needs) i hope Garmin will implement at the very least a better review submission system and maybe offer a better demo/pay model so that perhaps WF's/apps can expire after X days of trial.
