Love this watch face but the sunrise and sunset data is wrong and out by few minutes.

Well it's calculated and if I compare it with times that you can find on the web it's really close, most of the times it is more or less the same and sometimes a minute off which I guess should be fine :)

September 21, 2017 | Version 1.61

Everything back to normal with 1.61. Except occasional hicups with Darksky. Best watchface around. Thank you very much for your hard work.

September 21, 2017 | Version 1.60

I love this watch face and I really appreciate the developer's hard work and frequent updates. However, after the 1.60 update it became totally unusable. changing watchface setting on my iphone 7s (ios 11) does not get synced to the watch even though the connect app confirms the settings change. I am unable to change anything on the watch. I use a forerunner 935 running 5.40 firmware.

September 20, 2017 | Version 1.59

Kudos for this awesome "Activity" watchface, It's really well designed! I like to report some bugs on the Garmin 5X: daily and weelkly activity time fields won't count (stays 00:00) I've set it to the bottom field. Small request, can tou add distance to options for the bottom field?

September 19, 2017 | Version 1.58

Great watchface. Very complete and easy to set up. Just one thing to improve on next releases (if possible). When you set the low fields to dark and add coloured to steps, those can't be se en as their default colour is also black.

September 18, 2017 | Version 1.58

In my top two watch faces, it's really good, did confuse me quite abit but got great customer support from the designer, I still however cannot adjust the weather to degrees Celsius instead of Fahrenheit if I could manage it the app would be perfect, I also struggled with how to do pressure offset and altitude, but did manage longitude and latitude,.... Great app I definitely recommend it...

To change the units you have to change it in the settings of your device as follows: - Open mobile app - More... - Click on watch (upper right corner) - Device settings - System - Switch distance units from Miles to Kilometer

When I want to change the settings I can not save "Changing can not saved, Digital 5 has has for settings a maximum number of signs" (sorry for my translation, my native language is german). What does it mean?

Das Problem habe ich schon mehrfach gehört. Es liegt nicht am Watch Face sondern irgendwie an Garmin Express (vermute ich). Ich verwende das Watch Face täglich (dafür habe ich es mir ja geschrieben) und es funktioniert wunderbar. Allerdings tippe ich alle Daten immer direkt in der mobile app ein und verwende nicht Garmin Express. Es scheint ein Problem beim copy/paste in Garmin Express zu geben. Zumindest taucht dort immer wieder diese Fehlermeldung auf welche nicht von dem Watch Face kommt. Ich hoffe das hilft weiter. Gruss, Gerrit

September 18, 2017 | Version 1.58

Great Watchface, and great developer! Gerrit has open ears to hear customer suggestions. What is missing from V 1.58 change log: new icon for climbed steps - thank you so much!

September 18, 2017 | Version 1.58

После нескольких опытов - остановился на нём. Отображение информации, настройки- все подошло.

September 16, 2017 | Version 1.56

Great watchface! One of my favourites! Version V1.56 does no longer accept my Dark Sky API key. Seems to be a bug?

Developer Reply
September 16, 2017, han.solo_

There was no change in the Dark Sky usage since the first implementation. But it seems that somehow copy/past of the dark sky key in Garmin Express sometimes leads to problems. If I type in the key in the app on my mobile phone it always works. Cheers, Gerrit

September 15, 2017 | Version 1.56

Great watchface! Weather is not working and sunrise, sunset not correct in last version. Fenix 5

Hi there, Could you file an issue with a detailled description of your problem with weather and sunrise/sunset here It works absolutely fine on my own fenix 5 and also in the simulator with given locations. Sunrise/sunset calculation does not take DST into account so you might have to adjust the current timezone by 1h to get the correct result. Cheers, Gerrit

September 14, 2017 | Version 1.56

Decent movebar ;)

September 14, 2017 | Version 1.55

Awesome Developer! Best watchface in the Store! All u need

September 13, 2017 | Version 1.54

Excellent,Thank you. I like your watch face.l show on the Facebook many friends also like this.

September 12, 2017 | Version 1.51

Brilliant watchface. Best available. Thanks for the frequent fixes and updates.

September 12, 2017 | Version 1.51

Everything work fine but my watch when setting watchface changed. Version1.51 (fenix5)

Developer Reply
September 12, 2017, han.solo_

Yes I also see that, unfortunately this problem did not occur on the simulator so I'm currently working on that to fix it asap. Sorry for the inconvenience. Gerrit

September 12, 2017 | Version 1.50

thanks the answer to the my previous question, now it shows weather :) Version 1.50 does not work at all in my watch (Fenix 5X)?

September 11, 2017 | Version 1.50

I updated current version 1.5 when setting it changed watchface same before (fenix5)

September 11, 2017 | Version 1.47

The best watchface ever! How it show weather (newest version weather option)?

Developer Reply
September 11, 2017, han.solo_

To setup the weather you need a DarkSky API key which you can get over at Just create an account and you will get a 32 character key which you have to put into the last field of the watch face settings. It's also described at the end of the description :) Cheers, Gerrit

September 9, 2017 | Version 1.44

Nice non LCD font. Top!

September 9, 2017 | Version 1.44

Hi there, great watch face. Just love the active calories option and with all the useful data. Can you add the option to be compatible with the Vivoactive 3 as the screen has the same resolution of the Fenix 5. Again, than you for your excellent programming and altruism :) Keep up the excellent work. Best regards.

Vivoactive support has been added with 1.45 :)

September 9, 2017 | Version 1.44

A fantastic watch face! Clearance customisable fields, easy to read. Thanks for making it available for APAC version!

September 8, 2017 | Version 1.42

Very good work. Currently, there is a small error. Sunrise is wrong 1 hour. The value is currently not properly determined. For example, current Sunrise 06:54 in Germany but 07:54 shows

Developer Reply
September 9, 2017, han.solo_

Hmm...that's strange, I use the webservice from and when I put in the coordinates from my home in Germany I get 6:55am for sunrise and 7:57pm for sunset on my watch face and on the website. I've also tested it in Greece and currently in Singapore and it always shows the correct times. Keep in mind that you have to type in the latitude and longitude with a "." as decimal separator. If the problem still exists, please file an issue over at Cheers, Gerrit

September 8, 2017 | Version 1.42

Great watch face! It displays all the information you need, however I think it doesn't calculate the UTC Time correctly because when I'm setting it to UTC+3:00 (for Bucharest) it displays one hour to much. Maybe it's my fault but the UTC+3:00 is working fine with other watch faces. Anyway, very nice Face.

So the watch doesn't show a 2nd timezone just to make that clear. You define the timezone offset from your home location and if you have currently daylight saving time. If you then change the timezone it will show you the time of the current zone your are in as the main time and the date and time at your home location below that. I've implemented this to see the time at home when I'm on travel and so far it worked for me when I was in the US, Greece and Singapore so I hope it is correct. Cheers, Gerrit

September 7, 2017 | Version 1.41

I love it. Perfect. If only it would remember my settings after an update. That’s my one and only issue.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
