November 21, 2017 | Version 0.98a

IMHO, this is the best watchface available for a Garmin Vivoactive HR -- MUCH better than the one that comes by default. This watchface combines lots of useful information in an easy-to-read, user-configurable format. I strongly recommend it. Support for this app is excellent. A recent update introduced a bug in the performance of the Vivoactive HR. I contacted the developer, and the bug was corrected forthwith. Way to go!

November 19, 2017 | Version 0.98a

Finally a Watchface that is 100% free and very customizable! Easy to use and looks great on the Vívoactive 3. Thanks to the developer for making this! I’ll recommend this as the first download option to my customers.

November 12, 2017 | Version 0.97b

Awesome watch face - my current go-to! Only bug I've found with the latest version is that using the "seconds" option causes the display to go blank on a VivoactiveHR. Otherwise, I appreciate the big time for easy glancing, and the other details are great - so much info packed into a small space. Thanks Rupert!

It's not working on my 935, their's a mismatch in alignment.

Update your firmware. Delete old version then reinstall. Been working on my 935 for months without any issues. And thanks for giving me a 1 star rating rather than raising this to me direct. Really really appreciated. If you don’t like BigTime develop your own watchface.

What does the grey bar indicate (same place where the blue bar for intensity min appears)

Hi, thanks for asking! I had forgot to add this to the User's Guide which I have now done. The Users Guide can be found here : So, what does the grey bar indicate? It's... Floors Climbed - grey This shows you the number of floors climbed for the current day.

Very nice design and beautiful color. I use fenix 3 HR. The data field 3 doesn't appear on my watch.

Developer Reply
November 5, 2017, ruperthawkes

Do to the limitations of the screen real estate, it is not possible to squueze data field 3 on the Fenix 3 HR. Please see the BigTime users guide!

October 29, 2017 | Version 0.96

Cooles Displaydesign. Allerdings wird sie auf meiner 5x nicht mehr angezeigt. Wenn ich BigTime auswählen möchte steht da nur IQFehler...ich werde es mal ganz aus GC entfernen und neu runterlasen. Mal sehen ob’s dann wieder klappt. Ach ja. Wenn die Sekunden immer angezeigt werden würden wäre es echt noch besser...

October 24, 2017 | Version 0.96

I tried severel times to contact developer. No response. In the discription he wrote: Seconds - these ONLY show for about 8 seconds and ONLY when you raise your arm to look at the watch face. This is the way Garmin designed the watch! Thats not true! Newer devices could show seconds always. So why not implementing that? There is not much more battery drain. More data confiugarations would be nice.

October 18, 2017 | Version 0.95a

I'm using this watch from 1 year good work!! But today suddenly in Garmin vivoacrive The background frame of icons in the top has become red. I hope it return black because it's difficult ti read.

Its an option, turn off the battery warning in the settings!

October 17, 2017 | Version 0.95a

I have been using this watch face for at least a year. I used to rotate through, but now it has become only one. Great customization and color options for me.

Best watch face I have used so far i think is its great :). Only minor niggle is the seconds stop working every so often and then start again. Big thanks to the developer for this :)

This is the way GARMIN designed your watches hardware! Read the manual and the BigTIme user guide!

September 23, 2017 | Version 0.93a

Nice customization, however, my battery percentage won't change on the watch face (Fenix 5X)

Developer Reply
September 24, 2017, ruperthawkes

Please try 0.94. The battery level seems to be working on the 935 and it's the same code as runs on all devices so perhaps your device is at fault not BigTime. Also the battery level code has been tested in the simulator and works fine.

September 23, 2017 | Version 0.93a

Great watch face But don't know what the running man icon is for can anyone shed some light on this Thanks

Im a first time user of vivaactive hr. This watch face is very informative at a glance. How do i change kilojoule to calories . ?

Use the Garmin connect app on your phone,tablet,PC or Mac. Go into the device then apps then BigTime and settings.

Now it works on Vivoactive HR! Thank you for your patience. A little suggestion: i think that 3rd data field would be better if on right side of display, my opinion...

September 10, 2017, ruperthawkes

Will move to the right in next version. If you like BigTime please don't forget to consider a donation, thanks.

It doesn't work since last update from July 24th. After new installation it will be replaced within seconds by the standard face.

I have a 920XT - I love this watch face, however after the most recent update - DL'd one from Garmin and BigTime together. My watch face is in 24 hour format, the hours are no longer in white, they change colors as does now the battery, at 100% the battery is RED - I have also had the face go 00:00:00 and have to press a button to show the time any feedback on how to fix this? I went into the user settings and reset them to white, still nothing.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
