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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Developer Reply

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).

October 4, 2017 | Version 1.46

Nice WF! I would love if the second marker would leave a trail and then disapear when it reaches 60 seconds. Just like the older version!

Please read the description, especially the part "if you encounter problems...". I have a Fenix 3, too. So I am sure that it does work.

This is an elegant watchface that presents the information I want to see in an attractive style. It provides many, many opportunities for customization, and makes good use of the available resolution. I especially like the treatment of the seconds indicator.

September 13, 2017 | Version 1.46

Works great on fenix 3 hr, I've only one request: is it possible to remove the second hand? It's very unstable and always disappear. Nice work btw!

September 3, 2017 | Version 1.45

It's really a cool face. I have the Vivoactive HR. What I'd like to see for the VAHR would be options to change the margin dashes to triangles and also a digital-style format for the gauges. Basically it's really a cool face but it would be a 5-star for me if there would be a way to digitalize the font and have options for the tick marks--basically to achieve the look available for the Round-style faces.

Developer Reply
September 3, 2017, DirkN.

Well the problem with the VAHR is, that the watchface memory is very limited. Custom fonts use quite an amount of memory which I don't have. Same goes with extra options for margin dashes. I am really at the limit now. In addition, you wanted to see triangles as dashes. I can imagine triangles at 3,6,9,12 o'clock, but the other dashes won't work...

September 1, 2017 | Version 1.45

This watchface checks all the boxes. It lets me see all the info I want to see and lets me customize appearance to my heart's content. And it's attractive, making full use of the available screen resolution. Thanks, Dirk!

I love the watch face -- and rated it a well-deserved 5-stars -- but I cannot get my 5x to display the watch faces found in the examples shown on the main page. Out of the five shown examples, I would love to be able to make my 5x watch face look like any one of the first 3 examples. Is there a cheat sheet of sorts that would show the user how to configure this watch face to look like the first three examples on the main watch face page? Thanks.

Developer Reply
September 1, 2017, DirkN.

Well on Fenix 5 derivates I need the outer ring for the permanent seconds. That is why it looks different from the first 2 watchfaces shown in the examples. The third example however is exactly your watchface. This should be doable with your settings. If you need some more explanations just write me an email. Cheers

Sorry, but I can't get used to it on my Garmin Vivoactive HR. I appreciate that this is very much a work in progress, but it's far from intuitive to use. You have said that the border colour can be changed, but I'm damned if I can figure out how. Also, the limited hands style makes it a little restrictive on the square design - the gauge displays are regularly obscured by the hands until, say, 5 minutes or so has passed and the display is revealed again. Thinner hand styles would alleviate such a problem. I shall probably check back for possible updates. However, at the moment I can't see me using this - I do like the appealing round designs, though.

Well, I said, that you can change the margin colour. I think this is what you call the boder colour. If you look into the settings, there is an option called "margin colour". This is what you are looking for. For the Hands, well I will think of something. I will put it on my to do list.

August 28, 2017 | Version 1.44

I like it a lot, it will be great to have some extra designs of hands

This WAS a great watch face but the latest update is causing huge battery drain on the S60. I've tested with and without this app and the battery drain only happens on this app.

I didn't change any code for the S60 in the last update. Just for the VAHR. Did you update the firmware of your device? Please contact me via email.

Dear friend, it does not work on my F3, I installed it from Garmin Connect and with the PC, and it still does not work, when I want to put your screen, it returns to the original Garmin screen. It's all up to date. I would be willing to donate by Paypal because it is a nice screen. A greeting friend.

Hi, could you try to restart your watch. I have a fenix 3, too. So I am pretty sure that it does work. Just restart your watch and let me know if it works. Cheers

Best analog face for my VAHR. I would like to have HR on the left instead of moon. Or date on left and HR on right. Excellent work

August 11, 2017 | Version 1.44

The issue with the stripes seems to have been fixed with this update. Really cool face. Only suggestion I can make is an option to have numbers show as digital like on the round face if at all possible on the VAHR/VAHR+ and option to remove week number. It's the best analog on here imo. Great stuff

Let me start by saying how much I loved this watch face until a week ago. It started crashing every few days. In the last 3 days its begun crashing every night. This morning, I can't even keep the app installed and adjust the settings without it crashing. Please fix it!

Did you read the App Info, especially the part "If you encounter problems..."? In addition, without knowing which device you are using, I can't do anything. Please follow the steps in the app info and let me know if that solves your problem.

In vivoactive hr is very ugly, a lot of lines. regards.

Developer Reply
August 9, 2017, DirkN.

I need a live picture, I guess, doesn't it look like the vivoactive hr in the App Info? You can switch between the different patterns and you can choose the shadow colour and switch it on and off. In addition you can modify every colour in the margin. What do you mean with a lot of lines? It's all up to you how the watchface looks like.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
