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?

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!

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.

Nice watch face! Is it possible always shows the seconds?

Developer Reply
January 27, 2019, Hendrikvh

Thanks Wei! Yes, that is a good idea! I've now added this option for supported watches. You can turn it on under the watch face settings.

The only watch face in the Garmin App Store that I actually like! Kudos!

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!

Developer Reply

Thanks for the feedback Sara! I've added 12 hour support, so it will now respect your watch's setting. Grab the update and enjoy!

January 11, 2019 | Version 1.2.0

Very nice watch face with the lovely bongo cat!! But I had a please to developer: Could you please add settings mode to customize the design? I would prefer to disable the bongo animation. And it would be great if you can add setting color reversal to save more energy of battery.

Developer Reply
January 11, 2019, Hendrikvh

Thank you for the suggestions Daniel! I have added settings to disable the animation. You can find and adjust these settings in your Garmin Connect app. Don't worry, due to the way that the Garmin screen works, white colours do not use more power than black so I did not add this option right now. A black background may look cool, so I will see if I can add it in the future along with some other options for customisation. Enjoy!
