Yes, it is on my TODO list (for compatible devices).

It is the same as for the other CIQ watch faces. You have to use Garmin Connect Mobile app to change the settings: Menu-Garmin Devices-(your connected watch)-Activities & App Management-Watch Faces-HandsFive-Settings (and there you have a lot of options to play with). Your watch has to be connected to the phone via BT and your phone has to be connected to the internet.

Fantastic watch face with many options to configure. Still fast enough when switching between screens despite the amount of information displayed. Only things I would like to see is the option to invert the "date-wheel" with white font on black background. (or even better, free choice of colors) Also, maybe also the option for DD/MM and MM/DD. As for the sunrise/sunset dial, free choice of colors would be also nice... And I noticed the moonface background is always black, which can look a bit weird when having a not black background for the watch face. Otherwise, my new favorite :)

Thanks! Date field is inverted like you suggested, with white font on black background for the light backgrounds (White and Yellow) in v6.20.

Such a great watchface with so many options. Looks great on my Fenix 5x. Thank you for all of the hard work!

I don't known if it's the best one, but it's clearly one of the best. Thank you for this great job full of options. Maybe just the possibility to display the week number with day number and DOW ? It souldn't be very difficult to add this choice into the date format.

Developer Reply
January 8, 2018, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! The combination of week number, day number and day of week would create too long string to be displayed on the place (and I don't want to use smaller fonts due to readability). That's why you can choose only the combination of two.

Great watchface. All necessary Information available and easy to customize. Thumbs up!!!

This is by far, hands down the BEST watch face for my Fenix 3 HR. I am a data nerd and I absolutely ADORE all the data that is shown on my watch face. I'm a teacher so I need to look at my watch often and for whatever reason my brain does much better knowing time and how much time I have remaining with an analog face. Not only do I get that, but I get ACCURATE sunrise/sunset, steps, miles, battery life, HR, elevation, date and moon phase, and i get to choose colors and data fields! Oh my goodness, I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Thank you SO MUCH for creating this watch face and for sharing...FOR FREE!!

Thanks for this beautiful watch face, it works well, except the Hr on my Fenix 5x.

Thanks! HR works on Fenix 5x (I have it :). If you can't see your HR after 2 min (be sure you have activated HR display from watch face settings), you may try to do power cycle. But I'm pretty sure there is no issue on Fenix 5x. ;)

I have gone from Vivoactive 1-HR to 3 and this is my favourite watch face for the 3. After testing it for a week, I find it clear, effective and easily customisable. Happy to donate (and give it a 5) except for one new issue that may have happened with V2.8 of the Vivoactive software....the heart rate on the bottom half of the top sub-screen no longer reports heart rate (current or min-max). It was working prior to the latest Garmin update. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Hi, thanks for reporting. That is the problem of sensor history on Vivoactive 3 after the update of its firmware. Power cycle your watch should solve the issue (turn off/on your watch).

I like it but some options dont seem to work on my vivoactive 3. Contrary to other people hr is showing for me. If i enable step history it breaks the watch and all small circles become empty.

Developer Reply

Yes, that's the known issue on Vivoactive 3, most probably related to its current firmware because in SW simulator it works without any problems. Unfortunately, I can not do anything about that for now.

Nice display, very good readability. The heart rate is blank on my vivoactive 3, although enabled in the menu. The seconds indicator works only when the backlight is on.

Hello, Is it possible to get a full descriptions of all the options, and explanation of all the symbols on the face? Also, a seconds hand would be a nice addition.

I am using it on vivoactive 3. This watchface is not only functional and very nice. So far from all the watchfaces i have tried including the garmin built in this one has the least battery consumption. It went down from 15 % per day with the garmin titanium to approx 8% per day with this watchface and i think it has to do with the seconds hand which does not exist in this watch face on my watch but it is fine with me.

I like the ability to customize the watch face, and most functions appear to be working well, but the heart rate in the upper face is just blank even though I have it enabled. Otherwise it's great.

What device do you have? I'm sure that HR display works flawlessly on Fenix 3HR, Fenix 5s and 5X, Vivoactive 3, Forerunner 935 and 235. For the others I have tested it only in SW simulator. Still, you are the first one to report such issue. Would be better if you contact me by "contact developer" so I can try to help you with your problem.

I love the layout of the face. I have the Vivoactive 3 but have not been to configure the app. Am I missing something?

Developer Reply

I guess that you are using iPhone. The current version of Garmin Connect Mobile App for iOS has a bug. The Settings button is missing, but clickable. It means, at the position where the Settings button used to be is only a white line now. If you tap there you can still access the settings.
