After installing and trying to customize Vivoactive 3 got stuck on the start-up screen…looked like is rebooting itself constantly. Fortunately it still showed on my Garmin Express app and I was able to uninstall the watch face. After that it went back to normal. You might want to do more testing before accepting such apps on the Garmin Connect IQ Store.

This watch face has been rigorously tested on a range of watches including the Vivoactive 3. As you will see by the other reviews this watch face also successfully works on a range of watches. The issue you are experiencing sounds like the Garmin Express app did not successfully install the app, which is an issue I have experienced with the Garmin Express App. Could you email me on simon@bstrategic as I am keen to help you solve this issue.

December 15, 2017 | Version 5.4

With the updates and continued support hands down the best watchface in the IQ store!

December 12, 2017 | Version 4.9

Can add "Move bar" anywhere? Thanks again!

Thanks for the rating. I will have a look at this. Unfortunately I am close the memory limitations allowed for watch faces, but will look at this for an alternative version of my watch face.

December 11, 2017 | Version 4.8.5

pls add top field "Day Month Date" and "Month Date Day", thank you ^_^

Thanks for the feedback, this has now been added in the new version.

December 10, 2017 | Version 4.8.2

Excellent support and communication. Great idea, clean design with a lot of information.

December 9, 2017 | Version 4.8

Brilliant watchface. Would use it as my daily driver if I could choose week number to display. Unfortunately it looks like that's not possible at this moment.

More than happy to add this. Can you email me at with what your looking for.

December 6, 2017 | Version 4.3

Very clean! One request - with the new ability to set the background colour, can you add black to the text field colours? Couldnt see it there, but then that could be me!

Developer Reply
December 6, 2017, sedwards

Well spotted, all fixed now. I have added Black colour to all colour fields. You may need to uninstall and reinstall the watch app to get the new settings to function correctly.

December 5, 2017 | Version 4.1a

Latest mod is great. Please ignore my message I sent to you.

December 4, 2017 | Version 4.0a

Good job! I would suggest to add a leading zero option. When Date is boxed at three o'clock, and the date is one digit, look strange. Or just setting a fixed size, two digit wide box could be beneficial. Cheers

Developer Reply
December 4, 2017, sedwards

Great idea, I will include this in the next update. Which do you think people prefere, leading '0' or a leading space?

December 4, 2017 | Version 4.0a

Hi! Really good job. I love this analog watchface. Since your last update with new data on top, could you think is it possible to automatically add date next 3 when using a not date I formation on top ? Regards.

Yes, this is something I have been looking at. At the moment I have an issue with the computation time which stops the second hand when I do this. As soon as I have a solution I will send an update.

November 27, 2017 | Version 3.8

I'd like to see an option for more numbers besides just the four corners (where they'll fit, anyway) but I like this a lot.

November 27, 2017 | Version 3.7

Great watch face - I don't want it cluttered with stats and this can be customised to look very elegant. Any chance an option could be added to have the date on the right hand side (maybe even in a box) like on a standard analogue watch? Or even a shortened day and date (e.g. "Wed 24")? Thanks!

Developer Reply

You can shorten the date field in the settings. At the moment there is a bug in the Garmin Connect App and rather than a settings button there is a thin grey line on iPhones. If you touch the thin line it will take you to settings. You can custom the date and a lot of other items. I will look at a date next to the “3” in future developments.

November 23, 2017 | Version 3.7

Great watch face. look very nice and very easy to read. the stored hr is not visible in the fr235.

Developer Reply

I'm pleased you like the watch face. The FR235 and several of the Forerunner models with heart rate, do not update the heart rate very often, see this review I have noticed on the FR735XT that the heart rate monitor can be off for long periods of time even when 24/7 heart rate tracking is turned on.

Love the watch face. Clean, simple. I'd love to change some of the settings though like getting rid of the battery status and changing the digital time to UTC time. I saw in one of the posts to go to the app, but I can't find where the downloaded watch faces are in the app. I'm using android app and Fenix 3. Cheers.

Thanks for the review. You can change almost everything that you can imagine in the settings and certainly the ones you have asked about. If you have a look at the following link you can see how to do this, . PLEASE NOTE, the most recent update of the Garmin Connect App has a fault in it, and the settings button is now a very thin grey line, if you are careful you can click the grey line and still get into the settings.

November 8, 2017 | Version 3.4

Excellent watch face. Love it. How do you change the settings?

Developer Reply

Really glad you like it. Here is a link to the video for changing the setting,

November 8, 2017 | Version 3.4

Love the design. However, how do you change the display from battery to steep...etc. I have a Garmin 3HR Fenix

Developer Reply
November 8, 2017, sedwards

On the Garmin App on your phone you need to go into the installed watches section and then select this Watch Face, you will find settings there. Scroll to the bottom of the settings and you will find list boxes to select what is displayed in the left and right fields. Email me if you are still can’t work this out.

November 8, 2017 | Version 3.3

I couldn't find how to comment on my last post or your reply, but yes I tested the new version and it is working fine. Thank you! Really fast action from the developer.

I have just added a beta version of tic mark thickness for minor and major tic marks, the default is thin.

November 8, 2017 | Version 3.2d

Very nice watch face, thank you! I have been using this constantly for few weeks now. Any chance that you would make battery indicator on major tick marks optional? Because I would like to use battery indicator with seconds hand, but not with tick marks. Now I think you just use it with both or not at all? For some reason some of the latest updates made tick marks worse, they are not so clean looking anymore as they were before. I'm using Fenix 5s.

Developer Reply
November 8, 2017, sedwards

All done, you can now set the battery indicator separately for second hand and/or major tick marks. Also the major tick marks should be finer now. Can you check this and post a comment if it is all work okay.

November 6, 2017 | Version 3.2

nice and clean look with very prompt responses from developer!

November 3, 2017 | Version 2.9

This is by far the best watchface in store - my opinion Constant updates and permanent second hand wins it for me. Some developers claims it's impossible to have permanent second hand and want to charge you for basic stuff - not cool. Keep up good work and big thanks.

October 29, 2017 | Version 2.5c

.جميلة وسهلة الاستخدام ، شكرا

October 29, 2017 | Version 2.5c

Thank you very much for this beautiful face! It would be wonderful if you could make one more field with hr left to 3 , change color of 12 if there's event in calendar, make white color more white. Pedro

October 27, 2017 | Version 2.4b

Very nice and clean face..thank for your great work!!

October 27, 2017 | Version 2.01

very nice, simple and clean! excellent feature to show the battery strength on color of seconds hand

Developer Reply
October 27, 2017, sedwards

I am pleased you like it. I have just added the ability to select black as colour options (with some internal logic) so you turn off seconds, tics, numbers and hence make it a digital watch if you want.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
