Viele Einstellungen für den persönlichen Geschmack. Geringer Energieverbrauch. Perfekt für mich. Danke

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!

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.

November 1, 2019 | Version 3.6.4

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

My absolute favorite analog watch face. I've downloaded many different watch faces and this one is the most real looking one that you don't have to pay for. Very clear dial with full customization. My favorite part is the "Micro" second hand - it just looks really neat. I also like the Gesture mode that shows activity stats - it's like having 2 watch faces in one. Is there a setting to make "Sunset" in standard time - not military time? Also I would like the font for 3, 6, 9 & 12 were a tab bit larger but that's not a deal breaker for me. Excellent job on this watch face!

Hi, thanks for your replay. I have note this for the next update best regards 2aCD

October 24, 2019 | Version 3.6.2

Beautiful and clear. I have the backlight always off so very few faces are clear enough indoor. This one works and looks smart. Pity Garmin doesn't allow to check activity face with buttons(only ges)

October 17, 2019 | Version 3.6.1

Great dial. Please add the ability to change the color of the day of the week and date to red. The inscriptions are not the background for them.

A watch face giving you all the things you want to have, in a stylish way...

Giving this rating only because I can no longer customize face. No matter what setting I Garmin Vivoactive 3 the face odds slays white

Hi, I think this is not an issue from this watch face. The Garmin Connect App had a problem with settings on iPhone. Please check, if your Connect App has the latest version or try to use the new ConnectIQ App to configure the watch face. If only the color not configurable, please look if you have set an action at incoming messages. With this option you can set a different background color if you have unreaded messages. Press contact to developer for more help. Best regards 2aCD

September 21, 2019 | Version 3.5.3

Love the set out on this app but how do you change the face to the activity few when you have it set to change at gesture does it just do every few minutes or is there a button to press when I want to view the other screen. Thanks in advance

Hi, At time is showing up the activity view only correct at gesture on a VA3, if backlight at gesture on the watch is enabled. This Firmware issue is reported to Garmin. Best regards 2aCD

September 16, 2019 | Version 3.5.3

Very good watchface. Probably only Infograph watchface is better in the hands design (better anti-aliasing).

September 6, 2019 | Version 3.5.3

Hopefully you will make this available also for vivoactive 4

September 4, 2019 | Version 3.5.3

I've been using a vivoactive 3 for more than a year. I tried a few watchfaces, but always returned to this one. It has a clear and elegant design and lots of configuration options (of which I've already used a few, each for a while). And it's completely free. Due to the known Garmin firmware issue with the gestures (see App Info), I currently use the Activity view permanently and without second hand. This seems to yield better battery life than using the gesture with the workaround "gesture on backlight only during activity". Even without having activities, the "gesture awareness" seems to need some additional energy. But I guess these things can change with each Garmin firmware update. It may be interesting to know which impact the different configuration options of the watchface have to battery life. In any case, a fine analog watchface that allows me reading the time when I don't have my glasses on, and seeing a lot of information at a glance when I wear my glasses :-)

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
