However if you choose WEATHER, HEART RATE or change COLOR SCHEME, you will be every 10 minutes asked to either do not use these options or kindly to donate at least 2.40 euros to (if you kindly choose "give to a friend", you avoid fee on my side). If you do not have PayPal, card payment is possible (if you have a choice, I prefer direct PayPal due to the fees) - If you decide to donate, please leave also a message with a code which you can find on the screen of your device when you are asked for donation (it is necessary for sending correct activation key). Then you will receive an activation key. It is a manual process. I try to do it as soon as possible, but sometimes it can take up to several hours. Sent activation key you can enter into the field "Activation key" in settings.</p>

It looks great and paid for it. However I have one suggestion. Is it possible to put moon phase icon in the weather section? If so, it will be much greater.

Developer Reply
February 25, 2020, J_F_M

Thank you for your review and your suggestion. Technically it's not problem, but it takes some memory of course (size of memory is the biggest problem when you develop watches for Garmin devices). But Bongo is still in development, so I will consider your suggestion.

I can’t install this face? Shows installed, but just shows iQ logo. Fénix 5 plus sw up to date with plenty of storage.

Sorry for the troubles. Please are you able and willing to send me the file Garmin/Apps/Logs/CIQ_LOG.YML from your watch? It could help me to find the cause of the problem. Thank you in advance.

It is amazing! I really love it!

I've sent you an email, 945BONGO

Some suggestions: 1: please display the current weather and wind speed 2. Use arrow instead of degree to display wind direction. Thanks.

January 26, 2020, J_F_M

Thank you for your review and your feedback. 1) At this time I have no immediate plan to add current weather, but I will consider it. 2) Yes, I plan to add arrow for displaying wind direction.

Awesome watchface. I payd for that. 5 stars if I can chose the colors by myself. Not only witch 10 presets. :)

Developer Reply
January 13, 2020, J_F_M

Thank you for you review and your feedback. I agree that choosing colors freely would be better, but the reason why I chose this way is memory saving. Free color choosing takes much more memory then preset color schemes. And I wanted to preserve some memory to be able to offer more other features. One of this features is automatic color scheme switching after sunset and with preset color schemes it is more easier and more user friendly (in my opinion).

January 7, 2020 | Version 1.1.0

Special thanks to the developer. Really thank you. Great and Awesome. Everything is in place. I recommend everyone to enjoy and enjoy this beautiful watch Face.

January 6, 2020 | Version 1.1.0

Perfectly works on F6X. Thank You. Is it possible to add Body Battery option to progress bars and data fields? And still waiting for HR info we discussed.

Developer Reply
January 7, 2020, J_F_M

Thank you for your review! If I read Garmin's SDK properly, I did not find body battery is available for developers to implement it. I hope it will change in the future. And yes, I still keep in my mind your HR suggestion.

January 6, 2020 | Version 1.1.0

says if you change settings get a msg 10mins ,chsnged settings to check it out immediately message to donate was there so couldnt see watch face how i configured it so not donating ,watch face deleted ,some devs getting greedy better off using stock faces

Developer Reply
January 7, 2020, J_F_M

Thank you for your opinion. The mentioned popup window appears every 10 minutes (when you change concrete features mentioned in app's description) and lasts for 1 minute. You probably coincidentally hit multiple of 10 minutes (e.g. 12:20, 12:30 etc.) and therefore you saw it immediately.

Did you enter proper API key? Did you refresh your GPS position? If the problem persists, please contact me via 'contact developer'. Thank you.

На Garmin 6X Pro Solar оплатил 2.40 евро. Но на экране ничего не изменилось. Появляется заставка об оплате и ничего не работает.

When you send donation, nothing happens automatically. You will receive an activation key from me. As it's manual process and you sent your donation during European night, I sent you the key after 5 hours. Everything is clearly described in app's description. Когда вы отправляете пожертвование, ничего не происходит автоматически. Вы получите ключ активации от меня. Поскольку это ручной процесс, и вы отправили пожертвование в европейскую ночь, я отправил вам ключ через 5 часов. Все четко описано в описании приложения.

На garmin fenix 6x не работает ( iq!)

Developer Reply
December 14, 2019, J_F_M

If your watch is new, try to update its firmware to the latest version. This problem happened when factory firmware version was installed. Если ваши часы новые, попробуйте обновить их прошивку до последней версии. Эта проблема возникла, когда была установлена заводская версия.

Awesome. Can you either add the fields available in the bottom section to the top or allow the forecast to show with gesture in the top section. I find the gesture always covers the other data I actually wanna see in the lower section. Thanks

Developer Reply
October 6, 2019, J_F_M

Thank you for your review! Sorry for inconvenience. The reason why not all options are available in the top is memory saving. Each menu option takes up additional memory and unfortunately watch faces are quite memory limited. However, some options from the bottom will be added to the top.

It would be 5 stars if temp could be switched to celsius. Is it possible?

Developer Reply
September 20, 2019, J_F_M

Units for temperature are taken from watch's settings. So try to change it there. I did not implemented it to the watch face because I think it would be needless duplicity.

September 19, 2019 | Version

I love this watchface. It has been in my 6x for the last week and it seems it's here to stay. Extremely functional and nice looking. Kudos to the developer as he answers to every single request and shows deep caring for his users
