I Love the watch face, but it crashes on my Fenix 5x. It will revert to the orginal watch face after it crashes.

Thanks for the positive feedback Terence, I appreciate it! I am sorry to hear that it's not working on your Fenix. I have released a version with a small fix now that might resolve your problem, but I will have another look for potential problems as soon as I can. If you want, try updating to the new version, but I'll let you know once I'm confident that the issue has been fixed. Have a nice day!

Too cute!!! The only thing is that the heart rate doesn't appear on my Forerunner 235.

Thanks Victoria! Unfortunately the Forerunner 235 doesn't allow watch faces to display heart rate. I hope you enjoy it otherwise!

Great watchface, except the cat is not wearing sunglasses when I reach my step count?

Developer Reply

Hi Lara, thanks for the feedback! You are right, previously the cat only wore the glasses for a few seconds when you raised your wrist to check the time and then it disappeared. A few people commented on this, so I've now changed it so Bongo Cat always wears glasses once you've reached your step goal. You can update to the latest version and Bongo Cat should be much cooler now!

Brilliant! I Love the cat.

Hello, thank you for your feedback! I was wondering if people want to change the date format, so thank you for letting me know. I now added Japanese support and the option to change the date format in the newest version. If you choose the "Sat 12/30” setting for the date it should look how you want. I hope this makes the watchface useful for you. Please let me know if it does not work for you!

Absolutely fantastic! Cutest and best watchface ever. Looking forward to multi-language support!

Thank you for the positive words Gemma! I've added Chinese support in the latest version. I'm still working on Japanese and Korean. Get in touch using the "Contact developer option" if you need me to give priority to your specific language.

Thanks Robyn! The search for the perfect watch face can sometimes feel never-ending, but when it gets tough you've got to look deep within yourself and remember what you're striving for. If you want to be the best, you can't take the path of least resistance!
