Nice watchface but needs option to disable the realtime HR.

Hi Christos, This option is already built-in. You can read how to use the settings codes at julienslab.com/codes In essence, you have to delete the Left 1 Field in user settings.

Settings don't work from either the connect iq store or app. Weather is not free. Price is premium but quality sadly not.

Hi Alex, Some users reported such issue. It has been solved 100% of the time (as far as I know) by following instructions at julienslab.com/faq This is due to not using the correct app. If your issue is different, please report it using Contact Developer button.

The best watch face on the app store if you are willing to customise it to your desires. Easily customisable, just go to the provided website. Creator responds quickly on Facebook to questions.

Weather subscription is obsolete and a ripoff. There are free weather providers. Paying for the pro version should be enough. Developer would not respond to message. Anyways the design is nice.

Developer Reply

Hi Jani, Sorry if I missed your message. I normally respond to all messages. I often respond within 24 hours, sometimes it takes a bit longer if I'm traveling or busy. Sometimes, users send messages using Contact Developer button but don't insert their email address, so I have no possibility to reply. Regarding weather, I'd be really grateful if you could point me to a free weather API, as I'd much rather use that than a paid API. Currently, I'm using openweathermap for weather information. Check on their website, I believe the information they provide is quite accurate, at least this is what I experienced personally. If you have wrong information, it may be due to your location not updating, which is why I personally prefer to display the city name and data age on screen, to check information accuracy. Currently, I don't have enough weather and stock subscribers to be positive on these services, so I do have to subsidize the service subscriptions on a monthly basis. I hope that in a few months, the number of subscriptions will be sufficient to pay for the monthly service cost for weather and stocks. The Premium key is the only key that is not to directly pay for a third-party service, but to compensate me for the hours I put into developing this watchface. I understand that 5€ is a lot of money for a small watch app, but given that I spent probably 50 to 100 days of my free time to make this app, especially adding many user requests, I thought that a premium version would be a fair way to compensate these many hours of work. You also don't have to pay for the premium version to have access to the weather, you can only pay for weather and the watch face works normally (without user settings). It think I gave a lot of fair options all things considered. But it is your right to disagree. Thanks for your comment nonetheless!

Nice view and Idea. Work week doesn’t work. Setting by code numbers is really uncomfortable.

Developer Reply
March 3, 2020, JuliensLab

Hi Xhordan, Thanks for the feedback on work week. I will review that. I agree that setting by code numbers isn't very user friendly at all. However, given the hundreds of user requests I got, each wanting something slightly different, I had to move from a drop-down menu for each field (very limited by nature) to a setting code system where several settings can be aggregated in each of the 13 fields, giving thousands of combinations possible and increasing user satisfaction, at the expense of user friendliness during setup.

Absoluter Dreck!!!!!! Fast 6 Euro für Premium bezahlt und muss Extra fürs Wetter bezahlen. Was für eine Abzocke!!! NIE WIEDER!!!!!!!!!

Developer Reply

Hi Dieter, Sorry you are unhappy with the watchface. It is clearly stated that Premium unlocks settings/colors and that an extra yearly charge for weather and stock is required to pay for those services. Best regards, Julien

I’m premium user, I like this watch face and set it as the default. I missed testing all functions during the trial due to other things, but I still paid for it. However, there are several problems found in use, I hope you can solve and fix them. First, GPS can’t locate my location automatically, although I have tried the methods in the FAQ, it still can’t be located automatically. I have to set my latitude and longitude, Great! It works, the small red triangle shows my location, and sunrise and sunset times be displayed. Second, the weather icon and temperature could not be displayed. I have tried many times but I failed. I also tried to display the text of the city name, weather status, etc. in other places, but they were all not displayed. Third, the date and day will be automatically displayed in Chinese, but a Chinese character "日" is missing after the day number. Hope you can fix and update. Thanks!

Hi Mr. Charles, Thanks for your feedback. Please contact me directly by clicking "Contact Developer". Unfortunately, for some reason, the location isn't always captured on all devices and I haven't yet figured out why. It could be that some devices are not compatible, and require a manual entry as you did. With regards to weather, according to your description, you may only have purchased premium (to enable user settings), but not weather service. Please do contact me directly so we can check if there is anything else not functioning properly. Best, Julien

Used to be one of my favourite before the BIG changes and the payed version. You just made it unnecessary complicated-it is just a watch. Keep it simple and attractive-better ones for free up there.

Developer Reply
December 8, 2019, JuliensLab

Hi Deyan, Thanks for your feedback. Regarding the complicated user settings interface with codes, I agree that drop down menus are simple. But the one largest user feedback I've gotten over the past year is that they wanted specific datapoints to be displayed. There is no way to please everyone with just a few drop down menus. Currently, I receive much more positive feedback from users who like the customization options than who prefer a simple watchface. However, I do understand your feedback, and as I wrote in the below messages regarding battery consumption, I may end up doing a simple version of this watchface. It is a paid app now because I have spent a significant amount of time developing this watchface, taking into account user feedback and providing support. Also, I started flight training and realized I would need a little bit of financial help, so in the end, I reluctantly decided to make this app paid rather than stay with my initial intent of making it free.

It's a nice watchface, but a battery drainer as well.

Developer Reply
December 8, 2019, JuliensLab

Hi Rob, It does consume the battery quickly on some devices. I personally can reach about 6 to 7 days on a single charge, which I think is not bad. Read below message for a possible alternative that I may develop.

Hi Darius, It is not easy to fix. I have already optimized, and added an energy saving mode activated on gesture. To get better energy performance, I believe I should probably make an alternative, more simple version of this watchface where there is limited functionality.

I really like this watch face! Highly customisable, and with a lot of functions. The user codes might look daunting, but after looking into it, and choosing what to appear on the face, you're set with a beautiful watch face. The Energy saving on gesture option is the feature that gets this app five stars instead of four :)

Beautiful, but it would be better if the clock were slightly larger and that together with the date there was also the percentage of the battery as well readable as the date Bella, ma sarebbe meglio che l'orologio fosse leggermente più grande e che insieme alla data ci fosse anche la percentuale della batteria bene leggibile come la data.

Developer Reply
November 25, 2019, JuliensLab

Hi Beppe, Thanks for your review. What watch model do you own? The main clock was slightly larger in the past, but users asked to find a solution for left fields to not be hidden out of the screen, so this is why the main clock is now smaller. I'll try to think about how to solve this problem. Offering 2 font options is possible, but the watchface is at its memory limit and I have to see if adding a font could be done within the memory budget. I added battery level (a number between 0 and 100) as datapoint 93 in version 1.3.16 (not yet published at time of writing, but published as beta for testing). Best, Julien

Great app, but a bit of a pain to set up. I am a premium user, so I think it’s worth it. The last update crashed my watch, but it seems to be fine after a restart. App now shows “Premium OK”.

Hi Megavolt, Thanks for your feedback. It would be useful to get the logs from the crash so I can ensure it doesn't happen again at next update. If you have time, please send me the logs (instructions: julienslab.com/logs). Also, I agree that it's not the most user-friendly to set-up, but it seems that codes is the only way to customize the app with great detail. Thanks. Julien

Don't get this app if you have a Fenix 6 Pro Solar. Does not work well no matter what you do.

Developer Reply
November 24, 2019, JuliensLab

Hi, Thanks for your review and sorry to hear about this issue. After you sent me the logs, I figured out where the error is and plan on releasing a new version that fixes it. As explained in private, I am very sorry about crashes and bugs. It's unfortunately caused by trying to make a very complex app in just 90kB of memory, that needs to work on any device. User feedback is the only way to fix all the bugs. Thanksfully, after a few days or weeks of bug fixing, it should work flawlessly. Thanks again for using the app and sharing your feedback and logs. That really helps make the app stable. Julien

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your review. Happy to provide different languages. Could you contact via direct email and detail which parts of the app you would like in another language, and which language? The date is already localized, do you also want weather information and settings to be in other languages? Thanks for your reply by direct email.
