It’s a very nice face, the best so far, but on my new vivoactive 4s I can’t see the activity face with gesture on! Only if I set the activity face “always”. But then I miss the standard face that’s beautiful, and it’s a pity. Is there something I missed in the setup? Thank you! Great job!

Hello, thanks for your five stars. Some watches have a problem to support gesture correct. Have you trouble to see the activity view (set at gesture) and also with the second hand at gesture, then set the backlight in watch settings to ‘gesture at activity’. That helps to handle the gesture event correct. Best regards 2aCD

Quite nice, but I'd have two feature requests: 1. Notification count would be nice. 2. Support "time of next calendar event" in one of the widgets also?

Still my favorite analog watch face! I would like the ability though to access the "Activity Screen" by touch instead of Gesture. It puts more drain on my battery to have Gesture mode always on.

Thanks for your five stars. Unfortunately Garmin doesn’t support touch input by a watch face. I can’t this implement. But I’m working on optimization of energy consumption at time also for the gesture mode. Best regards 2aCD

Same issue as Jason Goddard: can't see/select the watch face in my Vivoactive 3. Firmware is hopefully ok because I bought the watch only recently; don't expect they sell a new device with outdated SW

Hi, please check your firmware version. 6.90 is the latest at time for a VA3. Not all watches update itself. Please press contact to developer Best regards 2aCD

Hi, have you installed the latest firmware on your watch 7.90, it’s very important. Press contact to developer to clarify the problem.

After update there are some screen artifatcs: every time minute hand points to a minute a dot remains in the extremity of minute hand

Best face. Period. However I liked it better when the background image didn't have the symbol of the line (battery, steps...) It would be really nice at least being able to toggle them

Hi, it is definitely running on a VA3. It’s important to use latest firmware 6.90 on a VA3. If on your watch no new firmware available, use Garmin Express on PC to update. Best regards 2aCD

I have "switched" to this face as my standard face because it is clean, simple, and easy to customize. I really like the sweep second hand, the minute markings, and the battery meter. Most of the other analog faces are too cluttered. I wish the hour.minute hands were wider and I wish there were a date display that included the month, but I am very satisfied.

November 6, 2019 | Version 3.7.3

Best watch face ever - and I tried a lot... All important informations for me visible. Thanks to the developer!! One wish: The possibility to have the bluetooth symbol colored blue.

I've been struggling to find a good analogue watch face, but this one is attractive, minimalistic, and functional. I should note that I only use the 'activity view' since I prefer the way that information is displayed. What would make this 5 stars for me would be if (1) the digital time could also be used on the activity view, (2) an option was available to remove the box/frame from around the date, (3) a lighter blue (sky blue) could be selected as a theme colour with black, and (4) an option to not have the back end of the hands extending past the centre dot, and to remove the dot entirely so that it's just solid colour. It would also be great if other metrics like elevation and/or temperature (from device sensors, not GPS) could be selected in place of calories, but that's not too much of a concern. The only issue I've encountered is that the 1 minute and 5 minute markings disappear, and there doesn't seem to be any setting to keep them permanently active (seem to come and go with gesture - this might be in error, since the 15 minute markings always remain?). Otherwise fantastic! - Garmin Vivoactive 4, SW version 3.5

Hi, can you press contact to developer. I have some little questions about disappeared marks on a VA4 Best regards 2aCD

November 4, 2019 | Version 3.7.3

Optik, Funktion, Anzeige und Einstellungsmöglichkeiten scheinen mir sehr gelungen - einzig habe ich das Gefühl, dass der Akkuverbrauch bei Nutzung dieses Watchfaces stark ansteigt. Ist das ein Einzelproblem? Falls nicht, kann das beim nächsten Update ggf. gefixt werden? Ansonsten wirklich gut!

Developer Reply

Hi, for a lower power consumption set the second hand of gesture or use the micro or digital second hand. Best regards 2aCD

November 4, 2019 | Version 3.7.3

Beautiful interface but each customization in the options clears the dial and force to uninstall each time. The reboot watch / mobile does not change anything...

Sehr schönes Design (muss fast schon ein Profi sein, denke ich). Schön wäre, wenn man in die Hauptansicht (oder mindestens in die 2. Ansicht) ein Diagramm (Bar) für die ganze Woche plus den aktuellen Tag einblenden könnte. Thanks a lot for a very cool design!

Warum werden die Sonnenauf- und -untergangszeiten nicht angezeigt (nur Platzhalter, aber keine Zeitangaben)?

Developer Reply
November 3, 2019, 2aCD

Hallo, für Sonnenauf- und Untergangsberechnung sind GPS-Positionsdaten notwendig. Bitte einmal eine Outdoor-Aktivität starten mit GPS. Das GPS muss OK melden, das reicht. Das steht so übrigens in der Beschreibung. Grüße 2aCD

I like the simplicity and elegance. I love the sun evolution along the day with the sunrise and sunset.

So far, I am really digging this watch face. I like how the sunrise/sunset and battery level values are graphically integrated on the main screen. Great design.

This watchface is great for me, give me the just information that required. I need monitoring some activities in Germany and the possibility of see another hourly zone is ok. Just one suggestion, the activity face must see only at gesture or fix on watch. Maybe if we can select an option to show with one touch as required see could be better. Regards

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
