Drew's Superior Watch Face


I am long sighted and struggle to see the detail on many of the beautiful analog watch faces available without my glasses on. This is a high contrast simple analogue watch face that I can see in low light conditions without my glasses on. It is highly configurable.

What’s New

Hopefully fixed a recently introduced bug.

There was a dormant December bug. Hopefully now fixed.

Great watch face. I'm using this on the Viboactive HR. I'm having trouble getting the moon phase to display correctly.

It has no direct control over celestial bodies.

maybe you bring back the pure black hand on white background. The gray/black version is much harder to read from my view. Thanks a lot

You can choose this in settings

Love this watch face and as I work in ophthalmology I will be recommending it for anyone over 50! What is the red triangle which on my watch fave points to between 25 and 30 past? Chris

It's an analogue month hand - a watch has twelve hours, a year 12 months. If pointing half way between 5 and six then it's May and about half way through the month. You can switch it off if you prefer to display month names. All the best, Drew (50+).

Very useful and very nice for my fenix 5x I can't see the blue and red point for sunrise and sunshine... I have use GPS connexion but nothing appeared. Is it a bug?

Interesting. The software works on the SDK F5 simulator. It may be working as planned. An analogue watch only shows 12 hours which means, as an example, events 1 hr and 13 hrs ahead would occupy the same position on the face. This means events 2 hrs and 14 hrs ahead would look 1 hour apart with the earlier event seeming to occur later. To avoid this ambiguity I limited the look ahead period for solar events to just 12 hours. The problem arises when two solar events are close together in a 24 hour cycle ( if at more Northerly or Southerly latitudes in summer or winter ). The 12 hour window from the current time to 12 hours ahead may not contain a solar event. I will need to reconsider the algorithm. I bet you are quite Northerly or Southerly. Thanks for your feedback.

Nice face. Now my top choice. Easy to read. Could you please add UTC time by adding a new hand. This will make my all time best.

Thanks for this watchface - for me very useful!

March 13, 2017 | Version 2.6

Thanks for implementing the requested features! There is always more, of course... ;-) Great would be the following options: Toggle date: bold or not, and even omit Toggle showing or not the additional indicators such as steps etc Thanks!

March 11, 2017 | Version 2.4

Update: 2.4 finally works on epix. Very visible watch face! It will be nice if you add an indicator of the blue tooth and distance traveled.

March 9, 2017 | Version 2.2

Still does not show on epix

Epic does not support Math.floor( x ) but (float).toNumber() seems to work in the same way so should work now.

Nach den letzten Updates schaltet meine Vivoactive beim installieren auf die "Digital Display" Darstellung, auch bei der expliziten Presbyopie Einstellung unter der Display Option. Auch nach Zurücksetzen auf Werkseinstellungen bleibt der Bug. Vorher funktionierte alles. Bitte ändern!

Es gab einen Fehler, bei dem die App nicht geladen würde, wenn das Gerät keine Herzfrequenzmessung unterstützt hätte. Ich habe es fixiert und auf IQ Connect hochgeladen, damit es gut sein soll, wenn es genehmigt ist und du das nächste Update hast. Dies ist wahrscheinlich die schnellste Bug-Fix in der Geschichte!

Good, high contrast watchface. Small issue, on my Garmin 235, the date and 12 o'clock almost overlap...can you move the day of the week a bit lower? Thanks!

February 25, 2017 | Version 1.8

This is a great watch face. Not sure why my second hand does not display. Only con is that at times the watch hands hides part of the date information. Hopefully I will get the second hand to display if I change my settings.

It is not possible to display the second hand continuously on third party watch faces - Garmin limits this to conserve power on the device ( the exposed API requires a complete redraw of the watch face for each tick of the second hand ). I agree that the hands can conceal elements of the face. I wanted large bold hands so as to be presbyopia friendly, the thinking being is that when all else fails in low light conditions I can still tell the time! I might try perforating them so that some of the face can show through. Twin lines close together can provide good contrast and be easily visible. Thanks for the feedback. Drew

February 24, 2017 | Version 1.8

Great. The best watch face. Thanks a lot.

February 17, 2017 | Version 1.5

Really like the watch face. For those of us that are Presbyopic it helps. I wish other designers could come up with easy to read watch faces for the older crowd. For some reason mine won't change watch face colors in the settings but that's ok. May be something wrong on my end. Thanks.

Love the face but today for the first time I'm seeing what looks like sun bursts at 6 and 7. What are they?

Developer Reply

Sunrise and sunset hour hand markers - orange for rise - red for set.

Like the face - easy to read but I have no clue what the "st" dial on the left side is for or what it measures.

Steps (-: Color coded depending on how on track you are. Red is bad. Orange better. Green is around target. Blue better than target. Purple is well above target. I did a 6 mile run today and I have 2.5 purple rings! I will do the same with steps soon.
