I'm a programmer by trade, so maybe the interface is just intuitive to me. While tedious to use based on restrictions in GarminConnect, the interface is easy to learn. When I'm not running, I need to wear my Garmin watch as a step counter for my corporate wellness plan. Problem is, I already have a nice watch! So, I want my Garmin to look like a step-counter instead of a watch. I've scoured the ConnectIQ store looking for a watch face that emphasizes steps instead of the time. Watch Face Builder to the rescue! I LOVE being able to choose what I want to have on my watch face. I only have a few minor dislikes, such as the Battery Icon not looking like a battery and the Phone Icon not looking like a phone. But overall I am very happy with the results!

Simply doesn't work on my S62. Even when saving changes one at a time, the results are seemingly random. For example I just tried to do a simple color change to the "hours" number.. and when I saved it removed the steps icon (???).

I don't usually leave reviews as they are very subjective, but I just had to comment on this total useless "thing" called "Watch Face Builder". I am not a complete idiot, I have an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and a recent Masters degree in Physics... For the life of me, I can not follow the "simple" instructions because the downloaded App does not contain the key components that are shown in the video, I see no explanation how to add a 2nd or 3rd , etc item. The App appears to be a total cluster and not worth the effort and frustration .. and still have nothing.

Not very user friendly using on my iPhone. Watched the video and some of the settings are not even there. It does show you a preview on what the watch face would look like either. Wasted €5.

Thanks for your review. Indeed we must agree that it isn't very user-friendly, because we are limited by the interface offered on the Garmin Connect app to edit settings. Still we are proud to offer such a unique app, probably the most customizable watch face on the Connect IQ Store. We developed our own interface for Android phones, which is available for our app called Watchmaker. We're sorry to hear that you feel that you wasted your money. Please reach to us using the button contact developer on this page, so we can find a solution. We'll be glad to assist you on how to use the app or to refund your money if you prefer. Kind regards

Thanks for your review. Garmin didn't make these fields available for third-party developers (yet). (Have you seen them in other watch faces on the Connect IQ Store?) Kind regards

Impressed by this. I wanted a step counter to dominate rather than the time so I was able to make my own bespoke design. Paid for the full version and hope the developer continues to improve it and add a few more features.

Jeff Janes
October 6, 2019 | Version 1.1.4

So far so great I LOVE it I have trouble seeing all the features found on so many faces out there and thus lets me set things up so I can actually see them. For me the things I focused on were time, battery, heart rate, steps and of course date time. I agree with another reviewer I repository of codes with a screen shot would be great based on model. Two things I would love preloading the settings with current values when each item is selected no having to remember them myself. The developer did say to make notes in the video I saw so that is not a fault just a desire of mine. The second is I do wish I could make the time even larger it is on seven but would love to go bigger yet might be able to just have not figured it all out yet I have a vivoactive hr and here is my code as it is 5#2#14#0#0#90#6#1#58#90#6#1#90#0#3#1#6#0#3#1#50#0#6#1#-99999#88#3#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#-99999#2#1#0#0#0#0#0#26#30#3#1#26#16#3#1#0#0#0#0#18#48#3#1#96#100#0#1#18#100#1#1#50#20#2#1#0#30#2#1#0#16#2#1#0#0#0#0#0#48#2#1#0#0#0#0#0#100#1#1#48#100#0#1#36#100#0#1#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#3#6#0#0#6#14#100#74#3#1#0#0#6#10#0#0#0#0#-99999#0#6#0#0#0#6#6#0#0#6#8#0#0#6#9#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0#0# Over all great job thanks

I'm not sure about the trial period- just too short and what use if the options available are that limited? I managed to put HR at the top of the screen - yet only part of the biggest (7) number is visible because a huge coloured band is obstructing the vieuw (end of trial period?), so how to test? Anyway wenn it still was visible I noticed that HR is not updating (no 1Hz) frequently, therefore no use for me. Looks promising but (trial) features dissapointing. VA3

Very beautifull! It has always been my favorite. It achieves almost perfection in quality and completeness. A tiny flaw, however, I found it. I could not find the symbol of the two points of separation between the hours and the minutes. Is it present in the settings and is it hidden or did you decide not to put it? Only this small detail is needed to improve Face Builder and make it reach perfection: the symbol of the two points in the digital time. Thanks for the great work.

Love this app, great work. Us Garmin users have needed this! Is there a way to change or add a background image? Or, does this modify the current watch face you have applied? If not, i would love to be able to add pictures and images and use this over the top. Excellent work!!!

Finally a watch face that truly lets you customize what you want to see I have it running on a fenix 5 plus with every square inch of the face being used and enlarged text for older eyes. Took some time to get it there, could use some improvement on the set up side of the customization. Suggestions would be each item that is displayed remembers its position so I don’t have to. Sunrise sunset seems to only work some of the time depending on if I’ve recently turned the GPS on would be nice to not have to worry about that. Also be nice to have user shared database with multiple watch faces displayed from other peoples customized watch faces that I could use and then customize a little bit. All in all a great watch face would recommend it to anyone.

Very nice app. A little fiddly to go through, as there is no "memory" of previous settings for the individual components, so if you need to edit a previous field, you have to remember all the field settings. But, with a bit of patience and a few notes the result will be good. I created a simple analog black watch face with white pointers and heart rate plus date in light gray. Turned out nice and simple in my opinion. The real benefit about this app, is the ability to customize it to your liking.

Excellent idea. I really love that the minute and hour hands are below the other fields, so the data is always readable. I consider paying for the unlicked version, actually there are some items i miss: climbed floors icon & number and steps goal are a must, second hand (even just for 10sec period when active) and an option for a second bar (some split of the existing) would be great (i like to see the steps and move bar together). Keep up the good work!

Paid for the watchface, but still having problems. Every time I change an item and click "Done", only that item changes, but all of the other items revert back to some old setting. Seems like I only have control over a single item, even though I click "Done" each time. Otherwise, great idea!

Great idea and good watchface. Some feed back on Vivoactive. 1. Only yellow, orange and grey colors are working. Blue, green and red are appearing as grey. 2. Sunrise, sunset have 30 minutes offset. I am in India 3. How to add Am/Pm and also separation colon between hours and minutes?

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. About the colors, it is explained in the description. The last six colours on the list are only available during the trial period or if you buy the unlock code. If the app is not unlocked, the items which use those color will become gray after the trial period. So, if you like the app, support the development and get it unlocked: https://www.paypal.me/485/5eur

Nice, but I can't get the whole watch face any other color but black. I want 100% blue, is that possible. Also I can't seem to delete both the steps and steps icon to replace it with something else. If I delete one the other one appears, even tho I previously deleted it too? Maybe Im not doing it right, or are there these limitations? Thanks

Developer Reply
April 19, 2017, r.485

Hi! Thanks for your feedback. I think I understand your problem, and here is the solution: you must click "done" to save the settings *every* time you change *each item*. It is more time consuming and far from the ideal, but it is the only technical solution I could find to make it so configurable. The only way to change more than one item at a time is by entering a valid configuration code. So, after you have created a watch face that you like, copy and save that code in a safe place.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
