Zen Minimalist


The watchface is based on the popular Zen Watch (available only for older devices), but it is optimized for the current generation of Garmin devices with 240x240 screen resolution and 3+ SDK. The goal of the watchface is a very clean user experience, but with optional functionality by configurable data fields. This watchface is also built to be as power efficient as possible. This is done via updating the screen only once per minute and by having just a single screen – this minimize the screen redraws. The watchface is more battery friendly than the original ones. Even moving between different screens and returning to the watchface is blazing fast – just try it and you might be surprised. For this reason, I do not want to add too many features, but if you really miss something, let me know and I will see if it can be added. The watchface is completely free with all it's features - Merry Christmas ;) </p>

What’s New

Version 1.6.0 (190512)</p><p>- Added middle upper and lower fields (they are placed just on top / below the clock and depending on the setting might collide with other data fields)</p><p></p><p>Version 1.5.1 (190420)</p><p>- Added altitude data field</p><p>- Added option to hide ":" in clock display </p><p>- Added option to hide leading 0 in 24 hours format</p><p>- Added requested date format "day DD" </p>

Sorry, that is the intention - to save the battery as much as possible, the watchface is updated only once per minute.

Moc pěkný. Jen jedna chybička. Když povolím notifikační ikony, tak se na VA3 objeví čínské znaky???? Jazyk hodinek i mobilu v češtině.

Děkuji. To byl záměr :) Nejsou to čínské znaky, jen speciální font, který symbolizuje A (alarm), BT (bluetooth) a M (notifikace).

Thank you for the review, although I don't understand, why only 4 stars, if you are satisfied. Please read the description first! IMPORTANT - HOW TO CONFIGURE THE WATCHFACE: You need to use the Garmin Connect application on your smart phone - there you have customization options, where you can modify settings of all watchfaces - it is the same for every watchface with configurable settings. You have to go to menu and select: Garmin Devices / Your device / Appearance / Watch Faces / Zen Minimalist and there should be three options: Uninstall, View in store and Settings - just select Settings and there is the configuration.

Skvělý. Ještě kdyby to zobrazilo i hodnotu stresu, bylo by to dokonalé. Rozhodně dobrá práce.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
