Great watch face I love it. I am having trouble showing the seconds hand. In the app setting you can change colour of the second hand but it does not display on the watch face.

In order to see the second hand you have to switch off the 1 Hz mode on Fenix 5 devices and derivates. Sadly I can't display the second hand in 1 Hz mode, because the watchface memory is not big enough to buffer the whole screen.

Very nice watchface . Where do you go to configure it?

Once I finally realized where I needed to go for the personalization, I am really impressed! Fenix 5 Sapphire Ed. Really well done and much thanks!

Hi, i want to show moon/Sun but it's write "no gps". With Android phone and vivoactive 3. How can i correct that ?

Hi, just start an activity and wait for the gps fix. Then go back to the watchface and it should work.

Hello, Is it really compliant with fenix 3 HR ? It does not work on mine. Sad ... :'(

Did you follow the steps under "if you encounter problems" in the app info? Please, before giving bad reviews because something doesn't seem to work contact me via email. I have a lot of users with a Fenix 3 HR where it does work.

Hi, fantastic configurable watch face. I love it, but I have a little problem with seconds. The hands disappear and only sometimes it appears. There is something I have to do? Many thanks and again great job.

December 27, 2017 | Version 1.48

easy to see all information,great!beautiful! but it is hard to setup without any pictures showing the function,i have to set one by one.

December 26, 2017 | Version 1.48

I can not un-install the app. I get an error message. Please advise.

Switch to another watchface and uninstall the app with the connect iq app on your mobile. It is important that you switch to another watchface before you uninstall. This applies to all apps from the app store.

December 25, 2017 | Version 1.48

This is a perfect face!! It presents much detail.

December 11, 2017 | Version 1.48

This is by far my favorite watch face! it has everything I want on the face and you are able to configure this to your exact preference. I would give it 5 stars but i have had to reboot, uninstall/reinstall the watch face 3 times in the last few day. I am using the Fenix 5X and iPhone IOS 11.2 even with that, i use this face almost exclusively. it would be absolutely perfect without the crashing.

Hi, are you able to send me your CIQ_LOG.TXT file in the garmin/apps/logs directory on your device? That way I may have a chance to see, where your problem is.

December 9, 2017 | Version 1.47

Una delle più belle e ben fatte... completamente personalizzabile

This is not related to my watchface, please be fair. Have you tried the garmin express app on pc? The installation of this watchface may take a few minutes with a mobile phone. Are you sure you finished it?

December 8, 2017 | Version 1.47

I have this installed on my FR235 for the last 2 weeks and am loving it! The color customization and patterns are great. I have green hands on a purple rombus background and it's stunning. The moonphase window is also killer!

Thanks for your nice feedback.

November 29, 2017 | Version 1.46-upd

highly configurable which is really nice, but it resumes back to default configuration eventually, and now the watchface even unavailable

November 28, 2017 | Version 1.46-upd

Wondering how you go about changing the color scheme. I have it install on my Fenix 3. Thanks!!

November 23, 2017 | Version 1.46-upd

There seems to be a new problem - and one that seems to affect all watchfaces. It's not possible to configure them any more! The configure function on my Garmin Connect App on my iPhone has vanished! Not just for your watch face, but for all of them. This has happened in the last couple of weeks. I've tried re-installing, clearing out application and slots to free memory, but to no avail. Any idea what the issue might be? I'm on firmware 6.0.0 on a Fenix 5.

Hi, from what I read this problem occures on iphones with ios11. There is a workaround in the forum somewhere. Cheers

Crash each hour on fenix 5x. Try to uninstall install not work.

Developer Reply
November 7, 2017, DirkN.

Did you reboot after uninstall? By the way, please write me an email so we can discuss your problem. I spend a lot of time in this so I am not really keen on 1 star ratings, especially if you consider, that this watchface is free...

October 23, 2017 | Version 1.46

I tried to install your watch face on my Fenix 5 - but when trying to activate it on the watch it doesn't appear in the list. At the end of the list on the watch it only shows "iQ" - but not your watch face. With other watch faces from the store it worked.

Developer Reply

Could you try to reinstall it or reboot your device? From other users with a fenix 5 I know it works. If that does not help, please write me a mail so we can tackle this issue together.

October 22, 2017 | Version 1.46

Very nicely done with lots of options. A bit limited on my vivoactive HR because of the space available. Lots of great information that I use each day. Thanks for providing this app.

crashes on fenix 5x since FW 5.84 and 6.0 / falls back to fefault settings. esp when you have an incomming call Works OK on fenix 5

Developer Reply

The fenix 5 and the fenix 5x share exactly the same code. If it runs ok on a fenix 5 and on the simulator and it doesn't run ok on the fenix 5x device I don't see the mistake on my side. Especially, if the error occurs after firmware updates... I would suggest you uninstall my watchface, reboot and install it again and see, if it helps. I don't own a fenix 5x and the simulator doesn't give me realistic results, so tbh I don't know what to do.

October 7, 2017 | Version 1.46

Warum ist es nicht möglich diese Ausführung für die Fenix 5 an zu wenden? Sehr schade.

Developer Reply
October 8, 2017, DirkN.

Welche Ausführung? Die fenix 5 sieht genauso aus, wie es im Vorschaubild gezeigt wird. Ich kann Ihnen leider nicht folgen...

October 7, 2017 | Version 1.46

I just installed it on Fenix 3HR & spent last 2 hours fiddling its many customization options to get the best look. So far I like it very much - especially background configurations eg. circles. Very nice! Makes watch look expensive. Keep up with the good work. Perhaps you can add other metrics for display like Recovery Time, Training Effect, etc as options for digital section (at bottom of watch face).

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
