Aesthetically Perfect. Wish there was more customization, but it's my go to watch face.

I should like the battery indicator to be shown at all times

Well that was the quickest and easiest app I’ve ever installed. I like the look. Don’t have date showing but maybe that’s just my watch model.

Thanks for reviewing! There are many option in the watch settings, including show date.

I love the simplicity and how well refined this watch look is. I feel I have a classic watch on now.

Absolutely can't understand how does AM/PM settings work. At any settings the watchface is always black. What I have to set, if I want my watch to change the face to white at 7:00 and to black at 21:00?

Developer Reply

thanks for the review, it sound as if your Settings file did not install properly. Uninstall the app, restart the watch and reinstall the app. with the am/pm the watch face will switch from black to white for easier view at day or night.

Спасибо за разработку но не немного не то, до аналоговых не дотягивают

On my vivoactive 3 battery consumption is no less than othe much more visible watch faces.

Developer Reply
November 29, 2018, fbbbrown

thanks for the review, however the battery consumption should be much less. Unfortunately, firmware updates may change battery usage, however if you where to compare to the most popular watch faces with this face. the Analog Battery Saver will use 50% less than those faces.

Thanks for the information, i believe i corrected the error in v2.2. Version 2.0 was a huge update to a new compiler version. Hopefully, this was the last.

Hi, sorry your having a problem, try unistall, restart watch and reinstalling. If that does not work let me know, use the contact developer link and contact me.

Simple y con diseño minimalista muy elegante Solo necesitaría un icono de 90% de batería, imprescindible para estos relojes que debemos recargar frecuentemente. Un secundario también facilitaria su uso en momentos puntuales. Buen trabajo

Could have earned 5 star instead. Please put an option for round/rectangular shape for rectangular watches.

Looks good, but 0,3% battery drain on f5x per hour is not battery save. I have 0,4%/hour with watchfaces fully informations baro/steps/kc/always on seconds ...

I would have rated it great (5*), but unfortunately, the app updated automatically through Garmin Express, and the watch face became round shaped, which looks pretty silly on my rectangular Vivoactive... I saw that this was part of the app update, but is possible to restore it somehow? Or just an option, to select the previous, rectangular shape?

Makes my 920xt look like a classic style watch and not sure what the previous review wrote. I only lost less than 1% over night.

0,3% battery drain per hour is not as mutsch saving as i hope.

A decent watch face, but the second hand keeps disappearing for some reason. I like to see the second hand. To be deleted unfortunately.

Developer Reply

Unfortunately, all IQ watch faces can only display the second on a Gesture Event. Other than that, no second hand unless you use the built-in garmin watch faces.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
