This is the coolest thing ever! Great work! The designer is very accurate and easy to use with unbelievable amount of capabilities. At least to me it seems that it produces pixel perfect output for Fenix 5 Plus. Compared to coding the UI with a simulator through trial and error it saves time enormously. With all the customisations possibilities it brings, this might just be the only custom data field one will ever need.

Vielen Dank! Die App ist grossartig und das Tool garminiq-data-field-designer ebenso. Da ist fast alles möglich. Es brauchte einige Versuche zu verstehen, wie ich das in die VivoactiveHR kriege. So hat es bei mir funktioniert: - uper String - copy/paste in Definition 1 von GarminExpress - lower String - copy/paste in Definition 2 von GarminExpress - Definition 3 und 4 leer Eine etwas genauere Erklärung dazu wäre meines Erachtens hilfreich Ist halt DIY und nicht IKEA :-) Gruss PeRo

I think you are very smart person. Thank for tools

This is the best app I have ever seen. It's really cool that someone cares to create an application like this. Now you can customize the data fields I like to use during my runs. Thank you easuvorov

Awesome! Of course I will donate! I hope that GARMIN will hire you soon. :D By the way the app is almost perfect, I found a little bug at Data Graph, but this is something that I've looking for!

Great data field.

March 27, 2018 | Version 0.81 public beta

Absolutely amazing! I was searching high and low for the "perfect" running data field and couldn't find just the right one. Then I came upon this and built it myself! Went through about 10 iterations to get it perfect, but the user interface is easy and the modifications don't take long at all! Amazing job! Love it!

Excellent data field, work on my 935 watch very well! This is the main data field that I used for my runs. Can you add all the Lap fields to it also? (e.g. Lap Pace, Lap HR, Lap distance...).

Jose Campos

Impressive app but i would like to use "last lap time" to could create a reverse counter field with "Time limit". Thanks!

Amazing datafield!!!! Could you add Predicted (Estimated) Time for each distance, to use on Forerunner 235 ??? This is the only thing that remains to make my preferred datafield perfect!! Best regards

Brutal... increíble aplicación Es tan buena que no me vale con una única pantalla de datos. Sería genial poder tener, varias versiones de esta pantalla de datos a la vez

I've done some designs but still I'm to dumd to do a graph for current speed. What values do I have to enter for a speed from 32km/h to 46km/h. i didn't find anything worthy in the forum...

There must be an issue with this version. In my Edge 820 the personalization doesn't work. I'm still seeeing the predefined look.

If application doent't crash but settings are not updated, then this may be related to market app ID changes, one of the Edge 1030 users reported me similar behaviour before. I recommend to do a complete installation cycle: uninstall, reboot, install, reboot, send settings. In any case, delivery of settings is Garmin Mobile/Express task and I can't do anything if something doesn't work in this department And, last but not least, it's much more effective to report problems via email, than leaving version or even device specific bad review in a common thread.

What a great piece of software! Love to play with it! Problem: I have vanishing lines/ items during editing - and they won't show up again in the graphic - still they are in the Display Elements list Improvement: I would love to have vertical lines to show variating value from bottom to top - not only left to right Question: how can I make a moveable arrow/ line to show the average of something within a bar?

Developer Reply
January 24, 2018, easuvorov

Never encountered vanishing items, if you send me your definition I will try to analyze this problem. If you have modern device, then it's possible to use rectangles with variable height instead of vertical lines. Currently there's no option for arrow, but my plans include "pointer alike" element for arcs.

Simply the best data field in IQ history.

January 18, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

Great app ! One missing field for me : Estimated completion time for next milestone (only ETA available, my need is to have a field containing the result of ETA + elapsed time). Do you plan to release your work to Github ? (I just saw empty repo)

Developer Reply
January 18, 2018, easuvorov

I took note to plan ETA + elapsed time for some of the future updates. As for the Github repo - due to constant optimization required for the application to take less memory on device during runtime, my ConnectIQ code is spaghetti and I doubt you will find something useful even if I release it, although I will still post it there once I decide to drop support.

January 13, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

Works perfectly on the VA3. The online data field designer works great too and is easy to use. The only thing I miss is the "last lap time" datafield.

Posiblemente la mejor aplicaciones del store, he podido configurar mi garmin edge 1000 tal y como quería, pudiendo cambiar los diseños a mi gusto, lo único que echo en falta es la potencia normalizada By Lap. Sigo atentamente las nuevas actualizaciones, un gran trabajo.

January 12, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

The best app ever seen on Connect IQ. La meilleure application jamais vue sur Connect IQ. Thank you developer, you're great and your product is simply wonderful.

January 11, 2018 | Version 0.775 public beta

Le meilleur datafield du store, on peut le créer comme l'on veut, c'est de l'excellent travail. Juste un problème avec la vitesse verticale qui ne s'affiche pas. Merci beaucoup en tout cas.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
