How can I customize this watch face?

You can customize it exactly the same way as any other CIQ watch face. You have to use Garmin Connect or Garmin Express app.

Hi, I had installed your watch face on my Fenix 3 for nearly a year, and loved it! Only recently I was playing around with other faces, and when I tried to reinstall yours, the face only shows a digital readout. I tried deleting and then downloading again a couple of times- but same again. Any ideas how to get yours back? Tony

Don't play with the others! :) Power cycle your watch (turn it OFF and ON) and then install HandsFive again.

I installed on my Fenix 5X, almost all functions work fine, but only the second mode works kind of glitch, the small hand on top sub-face is stepping and disappearing a while and then stepping again.

This watch face doesn't have permanent second hand. The upper dial shows seconds only in full power mode (activated by your wrist gesture, lasting for 10 sec each time). Otherwise it shows remaining battery percentage, it is not a glitch! You can display permanend digital seconds when dual time is activated. Or you are welcome to use my other analogue watch faces with permanent second hand like G-Sport or SecondHand.

New version seems to have deleted the black watch face. Please can you fix? I dont like the blue graded one ( that installs when I pick black!) Thanks for all your work!!

Hey, nice design. Thank you. Can you make an option to choose the background with and without gradient. Especially for the black background. Thank you

Developer Reply

Now you can choose between black background with or without blue gradient.

I love this design, but on my Forerunner 235 the display is very sluggish. It takes about 3-5 seconds for the screen to switch.

Developer Reply
November 19, 2018, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about it. ;( The Forerunner 235 is simply less powerful device and this watch face is very complex. At least, I'm quite happy that I have managed to run it there.

Absolute best and I love it. Thank you! I use it on fenix 5 and it has all the information I need - steps, current hr, altitude, sunset/sunrise & battery - which no other nice looking eatch face provided. I only wish if there were a permanent second hand - nit just during gesture. For now I use UTC clock as a digital work around. If you could get an analog one done, it would be great. Thanks a million.

Thanks for your nice words! ;) However, I cannot add the permanent second hand - not with the current smooth graphics, lots of colors and crisp fonts. The 1Hz technique requires utilization of screen buffer which has many limitations (cannot go into the details here). I have permanent second hand implemented on less complex watch faces with custom fonts (please see G-Sport or SecondHand).

After updating whatches become to show seconds in the UTC time. Is it possible to make chose for customers to use seconds or not to use?

Developer Reply
October 23, 2018, mbell-SVK

Hi, it is not necessarily UTC time, you can switch it to any other time zone if you wish. But currently there is no option to disable permanent seconds, usually I'm asked the opposite. :) But I can make it optional, if there is such need.

It's my favorite watchface so far, but I'm not able to configure the watchface, so that a second hand is shown. The second hand mode is enabled, but nothing changes. Please help. I use this skin on my fenix5

Developer Reply
October 17, 2018, mbell-SVK

Hi, there is no permanent second hand on this particular watch face, only second hand which is displayed upon gesture in full power mode. In such case the pointer in upper sub-face shows seconds for short period (instead of remaining battery percentage). It is also indicated by changed color of central point in the upper sub-face. This watch face is too complex to have implemented permanent second hand even on newer devices.

i love this face, but for some reason i can t customize it in my fenix 5x plus.

Developer Reply
October 13, 2018, mbell-SVK

That's because CIQ watch faces cannot be customised from the device!!! You have to use Garmin Connect or Garmin Express app.

My everyday watchface since months ago. From time to time I'd try something new just or change, and after a few hours I inevitably come back to Hands Five: it's the cleanest, neatest and most informative one so far.

Thanks for your feedback! Look for the watch face screenshot with the legend in the app's description page. In case there is still something unclear, please contact me via "contact developer".

Great design, showing all the data I need, highly configurable, definitely my favorite analogue watch face. In my humble opinion the only thing missing for perfection is a DND (do not disturb) indicator.

Developer Reply

Thank you very much for your feedback! New development must be considered carefully taking into account HW limitations of the supported devices. This is quite complex app reaching already limits for some of them.

Have loved this face since getting the watch last year. BUT at some point the left face stopped including bike distance, both in the total and in the bar graph. Did I inadvertently change a setting?

Developer Reply
August 18, 2018, mbell-SVK

Not you but Garmin changed that in their firmware. Bike distance is not included in total distance. It includes only walked and runned distance, you cannot change that via settings.

Preffered one. Only lack a stair counter.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
