Hands down (pun intended), the absolute best watch face option for Garmin. Extremely customizable data fields. The extreme and meticulous attention to detail is evident here. This designer knows something about modern watch faces. Of course opinions are subjective, but I would bet many agree with me here. Great job.

You can 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.

Fenix 5X, software 2.5. Upper sub-face (bottom data field) will not change from notifications icon. Altitude will not display above date/date. Only weight. GPS fix has been done and altimeter calibrated. HR min/max will show, but actual HR will not. Notifications icon in upper sub-face bottom data field will not change from "25" even if I clear all notifications off my iPhone. Please help me fix, so I can rate 5 stars!

I'm sorry, but I can't help you. This is the Garmin Fenix 5X firmware issue. You have to update.

Super cool face ;). It could be nice if weeknumber was an option in "Moon phase"

Superb! Thank you! The level of detail shows how much thought and effort went into the design. Question: I realise this must be extremely difficult to measure as it depends on the user behaviour, but how much additional battery does the "seconds / high-power" function generally use - F3HR ? Some suggestions: 1. Would be great to have an option for the watch hands to turn transparent in high-power mode in order to reveal details hidden behind a hand at that specific time - only for 5 or 10 seconds. 2. Would like to see the date format, WED 26 OCT, return.

The very best watch face I can find for my 935. Lot of information and clear. Many thanks to the developer for this great job.

The colors are so beautiful, vibrant, and neon in the pictures, but they are dull dull dull pastel on my Fenix 5s Sapphire.

The title picture is real (my Fenix 3), look at your watch outside in the sunlight conditions. Btw., please do not blame my watch face because of Garmin display quality. Thanks! :)

Wonderful watchFace!! Please, could you add Floor climbed field? Thank you

Developer Reply

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :) Actually, floors climbed code is already implemented in my watch face, but not yet activated, since current CIQ versions in most of the devices don't support it.

It works! 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.

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. ;)

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

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.

Developer Reply
April 21, 2017, mbell-SVK

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

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

Developer Reply
April 19, 2017, mbell-SVK

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.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
