HandsFive

Description

My grandpa was watchmaker and I am programmer and runner ;) ...This is analog watch face with five hands displaying some useful data like Sunrise/Sunset*, current phase of the Moon, altitude, daily steps and their progress towards the goal, 7-days history chart, burned or active calories, walked distance, heart rate**, etc. Highly configurable***.</p><p></p><p>(*) For Sunrise/Sunset computation the last known GPS position is used. If nothing is displayed, you have to fetch the current satellite data via any of the activity apps which uses GPS. Hint for MARQ series (!): use rather the 'Time Sync' with GPS from the system settings (seems to be a MARQ 'issue', thanks to Mario for letting me know).</p>

What’s New

IMPORTANT: This watch face is FREE, but its development took me a lot of hours and I'm still trying to make it better (there were more than 110 upgrades until now :). Therefore, IF YOU LIKE IT and USE IT REGULARLY - please make a small donation to my PayPal account: https://goo.gl/5z5ZBF (anything of a price of coffee would be highly appreciated ;) THANKS!</p><p></p><p>ACTUAL INFO: If you are iOS user and have an issue with the Garmin Connect app (it can't save WF settings), please upgrade your GC app to version 4.22.2 or use newer Connect IQ app instead.

This is the best watch face I used for vivoactive 4 until now. It does not consume much battery and full of useful information. I hope in the later upgrades we have more field options. Great good looking watch face, easy to adjust settings. one question, seconds mode is not working on vivoactive 4, when the gestures are disabled, any way to make it work when the backlight is on? even for a few seconds?

Hi, I like the facewatch, before give you my donation, can you tell me how to set it to show the sunrise/sunset time. There are no data in the bottom. Thanks man.

Hi, one of the most customisable analog watch face- good job. I would like to have one more counter - floors. Can you think about it please? Thanks.

Great watchface, really like how it looks and what it can display! Just two questions - - How do I configure the colour of the day of week differently? (e.g. in red whilst day number in black, as in the example picture) - How do I configure the bottom sub face data fields? I only seem to be able to configure the top and left sub faces and then the bottom sub face decides for itself what to display (e.g. at the moment it displays minHR/maxHR whilst I did not configure this). I am using it on a Fenix 6S. Many thanks!

Thank you very much for your feedback! The color of the day automatically turns red on Sundays. :) Regarding the bottom subface, it normally shows sunrise/sunset times and countdown to the next sun event, but when you enable heart rate display and it is not assigned to some of the data fields in the upper subface - it is shown here instead.

Very nice Watchface! How can I change the notification sign in another one, dir example in the alarm sign? Thanks for help

Developer Reply

You can see the alarm icon with the number of set alarms only when there are no notifications to be shown. This is fully automatic.

Sorry but I don't arrive to configurate it, only use it.

I have been searching for a good analog watch face that would be configurable to display what I want for a long time. HandsFive looks great, it shows date, sunset/sunrise, notification count, connection status and alarms, and it is exactly what I want. I would appreciate more customization options for left sub-field; I am not interested in having any activity related data on the screen. Would this be possible, e.g. for a donation (from Czech to Slovak)? :-) Finally, where is the alarms count displayed? I have this enabled in settings and I have one alarm active, but do not see any icon or indicator...

Thank you for your feedback! The alarm icon shares the position with notifications (there is not enough space elsewhere :). If you clear all your pending notifications, you will see the alarm icon with the number of set alarms instead.

I love the hands five watch face best out of any of the hundreds of analog watch faces I have seen. The one thing I would like to see on it is the higher resolution that you get with your “real face” watch face. It is beautifully done but doesn’t have all of the data I like to see displayed that hands five does. Overall, awesome job though!

Great face but the sunrise subface is not updating?

Developer Reply
December 25, 2019, mbell-SVK

For the correct sunrise/sunset times you need to fetch the GPS signal at your current position. Then the times are computed by the watch face for your geographical position. It may take few minutes, since the procedure is optimized in order to save battery.

The "second hands mode" does not work on my vivoactive 4

Developer Reply
December 20, 2019, mbell-SVK

The second hand is not permanent, works just in full power mode on your wrist gesture (it moves for 10s every time you look at your watch). With this complexity of the watch face and antialiased fonts I cannot implement 1Hz update (only for digital seconds in dual time).

I love the way it looks. All the info u need and easy to read. The combination of colors and design will make u watch looks unique.

I liked this app really. But some days ago it stopped synchronizing the weight on my Fenix 3 HR :-(

Developer Reply

That is certainly not a problem of the watch face! Try to update your Garmin Connect app and check the synchronization with your Garmin account.

Hello, I have a vivoactive 3, I installed the Handsfive watch face. At least 3-4 times each day the face disappears and is replaced with the default face. I have tried to contact the developer.

Developer Reply
December 5, 2019, mbell-SVK

I do not know when did you contact me, since I used to answer all emails. I just know, that at least for several others the HansFive works well on Vivoactive 3 (and also in software simulator, which is the only way I can test it). My advice, try to power cycle your watch, be sure you have the latest firmware and/or uninstall some other 3rd party software if your issue persist.

A great watch face, although I would like the oportunity to configure the lower sub-face, the one with sunset/sunrise

Developer Reply
December 5, 2019, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! You can configure the lower sub-face with the sunrise/sunset times or heart rate data. Unfortunately, there are not enough system resources for a higher customization of this sub-face, I am sorry.

Das beste Ziffernblatt für fenix5 und das erste, was ich nicht wieder deinstalliere, von so vielen die ich ausprobiert habe. Dafür ist eine kleine Spende selbstverständlich.

This is my favorite warch face to use. Could add temperature and sunrise and sun set to bottom screen. Really like the way it has been set out and looks great as well.

It is very nice face, but is it possible to set all sub faces beside only upper one and left one- top field. I'm with 5X Plus. Thanks.

I like this setup of the watch face, but it keeps saying missing data in the left side

Developer Reply
November 18, 2019, mbell-SVK

You must have completely new watch, right? You need to wait one week till the history of your activity is gathered by the watch. For the time being you can disable history chart and you will see your daily steps progress instead.

Just installed, best watch face so far, would very much like to find the same face with a tide indicator. Well done.
