7.1.1 on vivoactive 3 cannot customize, error all time

This is not an issue that is related to the watch app. If you are unable to access the settings for the watch app this is an issue with Garmin's software Garmin Connect. The ability to get access to the settings is not under the control of watch app developers. The watch app has been fully tested on Vivactive 3's. If you would like some assistance with solving this I am happy to help, so please email me at cleananalog@bstrategic.com.

Best Analog face for my 735xt , very clean readable style, nice date and tick marks just the right amount of info onscreen

Was really excited to use this- customised etc, but it isn't working on my Forerunner 735XT- it still displays the garmin default digital time. I note you have previously stated this bug was "Found and fixed" end of January- but I downloaded today and am still having this issue. Please advise. Thanks

I also have a Forerunner 735XT running this latest version and have tested every setting and it functions without failure. My 735XT is running the Garmin Watch software version 9.10. Can you first uninstall the watch face, restart your watch, then reinstall the watch face. Can you also go to the System section on your watch and email me the software version of your watch to simon@bstrategic.com. I would very much like to get this working on your watch for you. Regards Simon.

Very beautiful and customizable watchface. The one problem in battery consumption in vívoactive 3. E.g. one night battery drains around to 8-11%, while e.g. in NoFrills consumption is only 4-6% per night.

Developer Reply
February 9, 2018, sedwards

Thank you for your comments and feedback. NoFrills does not have a constant second hand, having a constant second hand does mean it will use slightly more battery power, this is not something that can be easily changed. I am releasing a digital watch version of this watch app called CleanDigitalPlus which will use less power. Also note the battery life on the Vivoactive 3 is not what Garmin suggest, this is a known current issue and you will see many Vivoactive 3 users on the Garmin forums questioning the battery life. The hope is that Garmin will release new firmware for the Vivoactive 3 that will resolve the battery life issues. Fenix 5's and Forerunner 935 running CleanAnalogPlus get 7+ days of battery life.

Fantastic face, really high end styling. My absolute fave. Have customised with heart rate in red at top, green battery in box and blue date in box all to match the very clever colour coded 3,9 and 12 numbers. Steps and calories at bottom in box In Light grey. Looks super cool. Well done!

Hi Richard, I'm glad you like it. I have just uploaded an update for this watch face that allows you to change the fill and box colour of the date next to 3 o'clock which makes it look even more like a traditional watch face. If you have one of Garmin's newer watches you might want to install CleanAnalogPlus as it has more features.

Very attractive, difficult to configure. The face itself looks very nice, better than any other analog face I have found. That said, I had to spend probably 10 minutes to make it look like the one in the photo (most options disabled). The description if each menu option is a short paragraph ;) Would be much improved if the menu was simpler!

Hi Max, thank you for the feedback. I am often refining the text of the settings to better describe the functions. It is difficult to strike a balance between too much description and not enough. The watch face also has a very high level of configuration and it is difficult to simplify the menus, however I will look consider how this could be improved. Do you think a short video of what the settings do would be useful? Please contact me at simon@bstrategic.com.

Hi Robert, the left and right fields are selectable. It may be that I don't understand your question. Can you send me an email at simon@bstrategic.com so that I can answer your question fully. Also take a look at the following video's that show how to access the settings to make changes to the various field options for top, bottom left and bottom right fields. https://vimeo.com/241946368 (Garmin Connect) and https://vimeo.com/250027125 (Garmin Express)

Very cool on my 235 now the software is updated. Lots of options which means I can display pretty much everything I need Steve a glance (date, steps, HR, battery). Great work

Developer Reply

Hi Steve, just pushed out an update 6.9 which allows you to flip the bottom and top fields if you want two data fields at the top and one at the bottom. The reason the top and bottom fields are different is due to the need to use in-built fonts to support languages for day/date/year, however for non-date data I use a custom font with icons (just in case you were wondering!).

I really like this watchface. It can be completely customized to fit your own taste. This is the first watchface where I can see everything I want on one screen thanks to some clever options. The developper has clearly put a lot of thought and effort in this. I have a Forerunner 230 on version 7.60.

If you are looking for an elegant and practical analogue watchface, CleanAnalog is simply the best! It allows to display simple watchfaces like real needle watches but also to add specific data (number of steps, heart rate, ...) with many options but always remaining elegant. Warning: if you have a Forerunner 235, you will first need to download firmware version 7.52. This can be done easily on the Garmin website: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=10450 Enjoy CleanAnalog! André

Garmin has just released software version 7.60 for Forerunner 230/235 and 630. This includes "Added support for Connect IQ 1.4.4." which is required by this watch face and was included in the beta version 7.52. If you update your watch to software version 7.60 you do not need to install the beta 7.52. In a few days once the roll out of software 7.60 is complete I will release an update of CleanAnalog.

Great work. Looks smart and good. Could you insert an option to set the second hand permanetly? It would be great ;-)

Developer Reply
January 11, 2018, sedwards

Hi there, thank you for the review. The second hand is permanent but only on some watches. Garmin only allow the one second update on some of their watches, even though their in-built watch face show it permanently. An example of this is the Fenix 3’s where the in-built Garmin watch has a permanent second hand but they don’t allow this for watch app developers. Can you email me at simon@bstrategic.com with the watch you have so I can check if is one that allows the permanent second hand. Thanks again, Simon.

I downloaded and installed the app which looks very nice but I failed to have the watch face on my forerunner 235. Is it any specific process for this app ? All other watch faces I tried to install on the forerunner 235 were Ok. Thanks for your answer. Best,

Could you please email me at simon@bstrategic.com with some more information regarding how you downloaded and installed it so that I can help resolve your issues. It has been successfully tested on the FR235. Also please see my notes on the CleanAnalog watch face page regarding firmware issues with the FR235, you may need to install the Garmin beta software for the FR235 for the watch face to work successfully.

Unfortunately I have hit the Garmin allowed memory limit with this app and so only have a small amount of memory space left to add new features. If you have a D2™ Charlie, Forerunner® 935, fēnix® 5, fēnix® 5S, fēnix® 5X, fēnix® Chronos, vívoactive® 3 then you might like to try "CleanAnalogPlus" in which I will be bringing out more features due to the additional memory space resulting from the new SDK.

Nice watchface app, but there is big lag every minute (~600-700ms) and also when returning to watchface. (Vivoactive 3) Can you do something about that? I am also concerned about battery life, if it takes so much time to redraw. Configuration: day-date-month, steps, heart rate

Developer Reply
December 27, 2017, sedwards

Thanks for the feedback. I am currently running the Watch Face on a Forerunner 935, Vivoactive 3 and a Forerunner 735XT and do not see any lag at the minute mark, hence the second hand runs smoothly past the "12" without skipping from the 59 seconds mark to 1 second mark. Also when returning to the watch face from widgets or events, the watch face appears instantly without any visible lag at all. I am wondering if your watch is doing something else in the background. Can you turn off the bluetooth on your phone and see if this makes a difference, also can you email me the settings you have selected for the watch face setting to simon@bstrategic.com. Regarding battery life, I have been running it on my 935 since Sept'17 and do about 25 hours of GPS a week, and get 7+ days of battery life. I have seen in the Garmin forums that people are not getting the published battery life from their Vivoactive 3's.

Please see the notes on the watch face app info page. Garmin is rolling out software updates to support the new SDK 2.4.1 that this watch face requires, however it is not yet available for some watches including the FR235. I have included these watches as available so users can be aware that it will very soon work on your watch. Watches that do not yet have full support for SDK 2.4.1 (however do have beta software that does) include Forerunner 230/235/630 (7.52 beta), Approach S60 (3.71 beta), beta software can be found here https://forums.garmin.com/forum.

Can you please email me with the model of the watch that you have. If it is an FR230/235/630 or Approach S60, there is an issue with Garmin firmware software on your watch as it does not support the new SDK that this watch face requires. Garmin have beta firmware available that does resolve this and can be found at https://forums.garmin.com/forum. You will find further details on the App Info page for this watch face.

Developer Reply

You do not need to install an update when a new update is released, the watch face will function perfectly well without updating. You can choose how often you want to update and wait for major release changes that are indicated by version numbers x.0. There are two main reasons for regular updates at the moment, (1) many users are requesting good quality recommendations for improvements, you will see from other reviews that users appreciated the quick turnaround on improvements and (2) Garmin recently released a new Software Development Kit and new firmware for all their watches requiring software changes to the watch face app.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
