By far my favorite watch face thus far. I love the level of customization, plethora of data fields and interface. Reliable, looks great and well worth the donation asked. Great job, keep them coming!

Looks very good but just one thing page for donations don't load up.

I've reported the issue to Garmin, when you use the https version of the link it should work: just copy/paste the following in the address bar of your browser: https://starttorun.info/data-lover (donation info is at the bottom of the faq)

A great watch face and made so much better when you donate. I was happy to pay the 3 euro because I can see the work the developer put in.

The watch only reports the altitude which the API reports to me.

99% there. Any chance the move bar could either be removed or replaced with other metrics? There is a lot of space devoted to a semi-useless metric. Every other detail shows that this developer is at the top of their game!

The next release will focus on a refactor of the bottom chart, the release after that one will (normally) take on the right chart options. Cheers, Peter.

This is the best watch face I've used so far. Had some issues initially but should have read all of the FAQ's to begin with. Everything is now working 100%. There was a lag with the weather readings adjusting to my preferred celcius and wind speed knots however that rectified "itself" overnight.

Even with FAQ 13 the temp is still in F rather than C. Overall love it but that's an annoying feature....

Developer Reply
February 27, 2020, peterdedecker

You have to wait until the next succesful internet request before the temperature will show in the other unit.

I donated to get faster updating and thus more accurate weather. I am very happy with this watch face and the data you're able to see at a glance. I would highly recommend using this watch face and I think donating was worth it to have the weather more accurate. 5/5 stars and definitely the best watch face I could find on the IQ store.

Loving it thus far. I've been using My Watch face for years. Like this one, it's very similar. However, the times for Sunrise and Sunset and Weather are incorrect. How much do I have to Run?

Developer Reply
February 27, 2020, peterdedecker

You only have to wait for the gps acquired signal and then return to the watch face. The sunrise is only calculated once a day to save battery, so you may need to wait for the next day before it shows the accurate times. Cheers, Peter.

Very good and functional watch face. However, I'm experiencing much higher battery drain on my FR 945 comparing to a stock watch face. What would be the optimal setting (what to disable) to keep battery ligfe longer? I don't use weather, could this space be empty instead (only option is Move or Weather indicator). Thanks!

Developer Reply
February 20, 2020, peterdedecker

The settings that consume battery are indicated inside as such in the settings, also be sure to acquire a gps position by starting a run activity, so that the caching mechanism is properly activated. Cheers, Peter.

The am and pm are touching the city's name. The am is an a and pm is a p. Can you insert one space to separate it from city's name? Also, can you add the option to change the color of the am and pm to match the time's color? Thank you.

Developer Reply
February 17, 2020, peterdedecker

The calculation is in pixels, not in spaces unfortunately.... :) Can you send a message via contact developer to indicate on which watch you experience this and which city name you experience this with?
