Drew's Clarity Presbyope Watch Face


My long sightedness slowly gets worse with age. I have two situations to deal with. One without glasses where I need an extremely simple, uncluttered display with high contrast. One with glasses where I can see fine detail on the face. The solution I have arrived at, which works well for me, is to hide details such as step targets, moon phase, sunrise and sunset times within normal features on the face. I have also broken with the idea of a fixed location for day and date. These are a hangover from real mechanical watches but such constraints do not exist in software. These move to a location where they do not interfere with the display of hands thus improving their discernibility.


7.3. I was hoping to surprise with the Santa animation but although it worked on the simulator it was too slow on my device. I hope this works better.</p><p>7.2. Support for VA HR</p><p>7.1. Bug fixes?</p><p>6.3. Minor update.</p><p>6.2. Fixed bug in notification code causing face to crash when alarm not present and 3 or more notifications present. I have temporarily given up with orientation of the moon other than rotating the image of the phase 180 degrees for the Southern Hemisphere. I will implement the projection of the moon's view based on its altitude and azimuth as a function of time at a later date once I have got to grips with their computation.</p>

This is a very clear, easy to read, clever watch face. I like the moon phase (not trying to emulate a mechanical watch, but actually showing the moon phase!). There are a few features and symbols I don't understand - it would be nice to have an explanation somewhere. But generally very good execution!

シンプルで見やすくてとても良いです サンセットとリンクされた太陽マークが フェイス上から下に落ちていくのが お気に入り! 日付と曜日が 針を避けて表示されるのも優秀です(≧∀≦)

Effective. Detailed and wonderful execution. It’s nice to be surprised by something as inert as a watch face. Even the notification badge is clever - gaining more facets along with the number of messages. Very tidy. Would be even simpler if the notification complication and alert marker was optional but I’m sure that is coming soon.

Hi - Really like the watchface. Seems really simple, elegant and useful. Just a question : is there a compatibility issue with Swim 2? As there only seems to be a sunrise icon and no sunset one. And a couple of other infos don't seem to appear? Thanks again !

Risposta sviluppatore
17 gennaio 2021, DrewShardlow

I believe the device has GPS, presumably for open water swimming. Have you used it in that mode so it can get your location? Without this the sunrise/set will not be displayed correctly.

Thank you. I quite agree. Simplicity requires thought and more rather than less effort.

Love it. Although I have a weird flickering on the Venu when it goes into low power mode.

Hi Visham. I have heard of this before. I don't own a venu and the simulator does not display this behaviour so it is hard for me to troubleshoot, though I will take a look. As a single handed developer it is hard supporting such a wide range of devices and displays.

Very good.

Sehr hübsch, jung, flippig, bunt und unkonventionell. Der cyan-farbene Sekundenzeiger lohnt schon den Download. Funktioniert alles. Sollte allerdings der bescheuerte Weihnachtsmann (o. ä.) noch einmal über das Bild fahren, gibt es Punktabzug.

Thanks for fixing the Venu SQ compatibility issue so quickly! Works really great and is THE most clear and readable analog watchface option for the Venu SQ!

Hello, Your watchface is really very nice and efficient for my poor eyes, many thanks for your job. Is there a possibility to have white background option ? I read better with white background... Many thanks in advance, regards, Vince.

I really like this watch face it's great. I wanted an analogue face, that was simple and still looked good with the pixelated 735xt screen. Plus with additional moon phase and sun activity, it's a really great watch face. My only problem is recently it keeps switching back to the Garmin original face - I don't know if this is my watch or the face download, but I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, updating, but doesn't seem to sort the issue - can anyone help with this? I'd really like this watch face back

Simply put. The best analog face available. Very clear and creative design. Only issue is flicker in always in mode on Venu.

Thanks Ken. Nice to have such a positive review. I don't have a Venu so I am not able to test the flicker issue. Send me a video (if you are able to capture the issue - it may not be possible or may introduce other artefacts). Is it there all the time or just when awoken? All the best Drew

outstanding watch face! thank you for creating it. the moving day-date, the metrics graphs... truly unique and ingenious. if it was possible to move the moon phase dot to the next moon event time...

Benjamin Hobson

Clear. Well described. Well featured. I keep coming back to use this face and that speaks volumes. It is not flashy or whizzy to anyone but me - as per the description- the details are hidden in the watch face furniture. I also like the clarity of the maker in their unwavering vision for the face (and it’s defence in the comments). It is nice to wear a hand crafted watch that meets the goals of the maker not an audience. Thank you for sharing.

Perfect watchface! Thank you very much!

After latest update to version 2.5 supporting "always on display" (AOD) this is the watch face to use on Garmin Venue! Kudos to the developer for the readability of the watch face in the AOD mode as opposed to a number of other watch faces I have tried. Yes, it might affect battery life somewhat but if battery life is the thing I suggest to look at other watches in the Garmin range (i.e. Fenix).

Very nice and original watchface. Good job really. It would be definitely perfect for me if we could choose background colors, I love white background and blue foreground, I see better... Maybe soon?

Very, very good idea and watch face design! The thing lacking on Garmin Venu devices (with AMOLED display) is that "always on" display does not work.

Risposta sviluppatore
22 marzo 2020, DrewShardlow

I had a go for AMOLED and it seems OK on the simulator. Let me know if it works OK.

Nice simple very clear watch face with clever progress bar placement. Love the constantly moving date - great design. As the developer says great for not so brilliant advancing years eyesight. Works great on my VA 4 but sadly will not display on my Fenix 5X.
