Zen Watch


Zen Watch Face provides a simple and minimalist look in style of a Japanese brush. If needed, it can also display various additional fields. These fields can be displayed on the main screen, or only on the second screen. The second screen appears only when you look at the device (turn your wrist). The displayed time can change color, if you are inactive (and Garmin move bar is triggered). The main idea behind the watch face is to provide a clean user experience, but functionality when needed. </p>

Thank you very much Chamyr!

Very nice, the numbers just look fantastic. I miss the same opportunities in the main screen as the second screen. It would be more nice with all the fields in the main screen.

Hi, you need to use the Garmin Connect application on your smart phone - there you have customization options, where you can modify settings of all watchfaces - it is the same for every watchface with configurable settings.

Excellent, easy to install and to adjust. I really do like the look of the numbers, and it's really calming to just see the time, and with a movement of the wrist to see more detailed information. The best face watch for me so far.

Thank you for the review Ben! Please check the new version - I added the option to display 12 hour clock option. Thanks for the suggestion.

I very like it, clean and simple. I would like to get an option to change text size as it is too small at the moment. Once again great job!

One thing I miss is the connection icon with the phone (bluetooth)

Thanks for the review and a suggestion! Check the updated version - I have added the option. You can display either icon, or text (but it will be displayed only if you are connected - to keep the design clean ;) ).
