Hi Marlon, it sounds as the program might only have partially updated on your watch (sometimes the Garmin update system updates the settings without updating the actual prg file). To force an update switch your watch face to another watch face, uninstall data lover, reinstall data lover and reconfigure your settings. Cheers, Peter.

Great watch face, love it, wouldn’t use anything else, gives me all the data I need, heart rate is key for me. However, if you could provide the month in English and include it in a future update it could be even greater. Many thanks

Developer Reply
October 20, 2018, peterdedecker

The month names are in English in the latest version, but it could be that your version didn't update to the latest version. This should fix it: change your watch face to another watch face, uninstall data lover and reininstall data lover. Cheers, Peter.

Thanks Enrico. I agree that the active heart rate chart is one of the prime features of the watch face. Cheers, Peter

Best interactive and customizable Watchface. Spend the money for better weather update - it's wonderful! I am only Weekday and Month in another languages for example in German. Please update :-)

Developer Reply
October 15, 2018, peterdedecker

Thanks for the kind words Thomas. Localization is a bit of an issue because it depends partially on externally delivered content (yahoo weather) and even if I were to do localization only for the date it would require loading extra fonts for Chinese languages etc for which I simply don't have sufficient memory left (very little left). So realistically I don't think that localisation will be something for the current range of existing Garmin watches and we'll have to wait for new iterations which will hopefully have more than 92k of memory for watch faces. Anyway I have added localisation to the backlog to look at in the future. Cheers, Peter.

It looks like the weatherline nust above the minutes saying ‘mostly cloudy’ is static and not dynamic. Also even after applying the key in the settings there is no way to replace this field. Did I miss something? Could you please advise? Apart from that this is an awesome watchface.

Developer Reply
October 14, 2018, peterdedecker

There are 2 options to hide the weather line. 1/ change the right chart to move circles 2/ check the show field 4 in the app settings (option 2 is not available on the fr735xt due to memory restrictions). Cheers, Peter.

Great watch face. But I can't seem to find out what unit the wind speeds are in? Is i possible to change the unit (m/s, knots ect.)?

Developer Reply
October 12, 2018, peterdedecker

You can see the unit when you set the right chart option to weather + wind. It will either be k/h or miles/h depending on whether your watch uses the metric or statute system. Cheers, Peter.

October 11, 2018 | Version 6.0.3

Still a great watch! I like using it. But i have a problem with the weather info. It keeps showing me the weather of a city different from the GPS coordinates i set. I put the coordinate of Paris, which is (48.8566140,2.3522219), but it shows me Venansault, France (46.6853580,-1.5129820) (I have a donation key :) )

Developer Reply
October 11, 2018, peterdedecker

You have entered the coordinates in the format as the website shows them right? Do you have a Vivoactive 3? There's a problem with gps drift on the Vivoactive 3 device firmware. (I have reported this to Garmin but this requires a firmware fix, not something I can fix). (In case you have another device type contact me through the forum or via contact developer). Cheers, Peter.

Hi, Great face watch. The only problem I found is that yiu can't set on secondary time zone negative numbers. Thanks

Developer Reply

It's possible but a bit counter intuitive in garmin connect mobile: first enter the digits then tap in front of the digits to enter the minus sign. Cheers, Peter.

This watch face is alright. I like it, but don't understand why the need for GPS permissions when it never updates the location for me.

Developer Reply
October 5, 2018, peterdedecker

This is a Garmin limitation, watch faces can only fetch the location from recent gps activities. See the faq for details on how to update your location in the watch face. Cheers, Peter.

Würde mich noch über deutsche Übersetzung freuen für die Wochentage.

Developer Reply
October 4, 2018, peterdedecker

Hi Ronny. It's unlikely that I'll add (partial) translation to the watch face because of extra memory requirement (very little left - about 2k), extra complexity (need other fonts for chinese languages etc...) and because of the dependency on the yahoo weather service. Cheers, Peter.

Love this watch face but after the update for it this morning I see the month is wrong showing Okt instead of Oct thanks.

Developer Reply

The version on your watch will likely not have updated to 6.0.2 where I fixed this typo (the in-place upgrade is sometimes flaky). To fix this uninstall the watch face and reinstall it. Cheers, Peter.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
