Text Face 935


A text-based watch fashioned after the original Text Watch by Guandax (see for more details).</p><p></p><p>As Text Watch has not yet been extended to support the Forerunner® 935 or fēnix® 5/5S/5X watches, this watch face seeks to provide an interim substitute for owners of those watches. Settings are available to configure basic colors, text position (left, right, and centered), and optionally display step count details.</p>


NOTE: Feedback for any text positioning errors would be greatly appreciated, as I don't have all the hardware to test on!</p><p></p><p>1.0.1</p><p>- Added support for the fēnix® 5 series of watches</p><p></p><p>1.0.2</p><p>- Modified text so that hyphens are used instead of apostrophes (except for on the hour). Example: one o'clock, one o-one, one o-two</p><p></p><p>1.0.3</p><p>- Additional characters supported</p>

Excellent watch face. The English text is properly aligned and working great, however, I would really love an option (or another watch face) to have the digital clock with the same font and layout (everything from below to be the same, except for the clock to be in digital)

Hi, I really like the app! Is there a way to slightly increase the size of bottom characters (date, battery, steps,...)?

Simple and easy and unique.. Love it... TQVm

Nice watchface, use it on my vivoactive 4. More custom settings would be great. Green battery indicator would be great. Cheers !

Great app, i had it installed in my previous Fenix 3. Can you make it available for Fenix 5?

Hi Dorin, thanks for the feedback and I'm glad you like the watch face. It *should* already by compatible with the Fenix 5...the following are all currently compatible devices: fēnix 5, fēnix 5S, fēnix 5X, FR 935. Do you have the Plus model?

Great watchface. Any idea of how to translate it to German? Any plans?

Hi Bernd. Sorry, I'm just a single developer, and while it would be nice to introduce other languages, I don't have the time or resources to support anything other than English for now.

Simple but useful functionality, and crazy battery life with this face.

I got a forerunner 935 and I love this watch face. However as soon you change the settings in the watch face and save, the watch face disappears from the watch. If you don’t change the settings it seems to work. Pls fix....

on a Fenix 5, the Watchface disappears and becomes inaccessible after accessing any of the menus. It requires re-installation each time. Therefor, unuseable. Too bad, I like it very much.

I'm trying to figure out why this is happening. Another person has mentioned this to me, but I don't have a Fenix 5 to replicate the issue on, and it doesn't happen on the 935, for which I have the hardware. If you're able to retrieve the logs from your watch, it may help me track the issue down, in which case if you could use the Contact Developer link, that would be immensely helpful. And thank you for your honest review.

Wonderful. Thank you so much. Fantastic update.

Thank you so much for releasing this. Since upgrading to the Fenix 5, I have been missing my old text clock. This is an excellent watch face and looks nice and sharp

6 décembre 2017 | Version 1.0.1

Love this watchface, however it would be nice to have the option of a hyphen rather than o' because the latter makes no sense in English whatsoever. Five o-six is preferable to five o'six as an apostrophe denotes missing letters. The o' in the time in English means 'of the clock'. If we simply want to express the sound 'oh', then an o- is a better choice. That aside, thanks for a great watchface.

When I get the chance, I'll modify the wording to use a hyphen, except for on the hour (example, "five o'clock", "five o-one", "five o-two").
