Exactly what I was looking for on the 5x, to combine heart rate with some other info. As great and reliable as this face has been, I do have 2 small gripes- 1. The altimeter display never worked, though weight shows up fine. 2. The displayed heart rate seems laggy compared to built in app. Overall though, the customizations and reliability keep me using this one. Thank you!

Thanks for your feedback! 1) The altitude display doesn't work on F5 watches due to firmware bug, Toybox.Activity.getActivityInfo().altitude is not accessible (despite it should be available since CIQ 1.0.0). Please wait for the FW update by Garmin. 2) Heart rate delay is normal, it is because it is read from the sensor history and not directly from the sensor itself. But this will change as well for the next CIQ 2.3 release. For now, I can't do anything better. ;)

中文f5x表盘预览里可以小时中文(星期 月份),选中厚加载表盘则变成空白,不知是佳明问题还是怎样。

The BEST designed and laid out watch face for Garmin. The bits I love are - 7 day steps graph, sunrise and sunset dial, battery dial and colour arc, big hands with holes and general functionality plus options. Just one ask - could you make the day and date bigger? Loving your work

Thanks a lot for your feedback! ;)

I would give it five stars but the gear is gone. Bring back the gear please! That was my absolute favorite part of an awesome watch face.

Unfortunately, I had to sacrifice the watch gear in order to gain some additional run-time memory for the other requested features. I could bring it back, but only for Fenix 5 family devices, which have bigger RAM.

The one watch face I wear every day, easy to see, Martin was kind enough to add month option back in. I appreciate it, would not know what day of the week or month without. I'm starting "Bring Back the Gear" campaign! Thank you Martin

You have to use Garmin Connect Mobile app to change the watch face settings: Menu-Garmin Devices-(your connected watch)-Connect IQ Apps-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.

Great work ... in my opinium one of best and well-developed watch face. Unfortunately the current altitude will not be displayed - what a pitty. The others functions do a what i will expect

Thanks! ;) Regarding the altitude, it is common issue on Fenix 5 devices and I can't do anything about that. Please wait for the next firmware update by Garmin.

Great "Analog" Watchface yet with lots of info shown! One thing I can't figure out is what the bottom sub-face dial is. I have the bottom sub-face set for HR, is it related to that or sunset/sunrise time? Also i don't think the day/night color arcs are working, as I don't see any difference when it's turned on or off. I have 5X btw.

Thanks! The bottom sub-face dial shows the current phase of the day (or night) even if you have selected HR data. Also the hours and minutes to the next sun even are displayed in the middle. If you choose day/night color arcs, the appropriate arc is colored during the day (blue) or during the night (red). If this option is not selected, both arcs are white/grey.

If the next version of the update, the option to add "temperature" will be better.

Hola, es mi pantalla favorita, pero desde la última actualización, no es posible la instalación en mi fenix3. Me aparece la pantalla digital simple (ejem 12:15), que puedo hacer?

Do the following: 1. select built-in Garmin watch face (e.g. Analog or Digital) 2. restart your watch (turn it off and on by long press of Light button) 3. select HandsFive watch face and you are done.

My new favorite watch face! One little thing, the altutude no longer shows in my 235; it did earlier today, not sure what I did, other than a few colors and added my progress chart. So, if you make any changes be prepared to potentially have that happen.

April 15, 2017

Favorite watchface for me! In the new version i miss "DOW DD WEEK"! I wish you can bring it back in the next Version! Can you please add white background?

April 15, 2017

My favorite watch face! Lots of information and easy to read. Question: How do you enable the little gear icon to the right of the top Sub-Face? Also, what are the two red dialogue boxes to the right of the bottom Sub-Face and how do you enable them? Thank you

Developer Reply
April 15, 2017, mbell-SVK

Thanks! The watch gear is no more available since version 5.4, I had to sacrifice something for the precious run-time memory. And the two red boxes show processing time in ms and current free run-time memory (available only in my debug version of the watch face :).

April 15, 2017

Great watch face indeed. Two questions though: 1. How did you make the DOW to be red color? 2. Are there any settings for the bottom subface data?

Developer Reply
April 15, 2017, mbell-SVK

Thanks! 1. DOW is red automatically for Sundays only, wait for it. :) 2. In the bottom subface you can have sunrise/sunset times with the hours/minutes to the next sun event, or min/max and actual heart rate (only for devices with OHR).

I can't see the altitude on 5x

Developer Reply
April 15, 2017, mbell-SVK

Yes, that's the common issue on Fenix 5 devices, not only for this watch face. Unfortunately, I can't do anything about it, it works in software simulator without any problems.

Best watchface on market. Love it!
