BigFont Heart Rate 1Hz


Idea: HeartRate updates once per second ( means in 1Hz mode) in BIG FONT directly on the watchface. Minimalistic data, Time and HeartRate in BIG FONTS, for easy reading under bad conditions (and for my old eyes).</p><p></p><p>It is for Fenix 5, 5S and other newest Garmin watches which have this 1Hz mode. </p><p></p><p>Shows:</p><p>- Weekday and day (no need to show the month, as I know it)</p><p>- Hour and Minutes</p>


2019-03-06: Licence Code (avoid one)</p><p>2018-11-10: New License Code. (avoid Null)</p><p>2018-07-29: Now also for Fenix 5S (for Monica).</p><p> Removed options for seconds. Shows seconds always as number.</p><p> Added also Forerunner 645.</p><p></p><p>2018-05-18: added BlueTooth icon. + minor improvements</p><p>2018-04-13: add "Achieved Goal" color, so the first 90 degrees are colored different when goal is achieved more than 100%.</p>

Works well on my Vivoactive 3. I like having the heart rate and battery status constantly displayed and the big font for time is easily readable. The process to get it permanently installed/licensed is easier than the 10 pages of linked instructions would lead you believe. Once the app is downloaded to the device from the store it will alternate between a display and a message that you need to get a license, along with a code number. Use the link in the instructions to pay 6 Euros (plus currence fee) via Paypal and send an email to the same address quoting the code number displayed on the watch. He will respond to your via email within a few hours with your licence number. Go into this app on your phone/computer and click on the editing section. Enter your license number in the box and select the colors you wants for background and font - thought I think the originals are best.

App info still does not lead to any way to get a license.

Just what I was looking for. A watch face that I can read the HR without my glasses. I just had an Ablation for AFib and my HR is the most important number to me at this time and most likely from now on. Thanks.

Just read the App Info! It is all explained there. 6 euro per PayPal.

The fact that this can be customized and I don't have to look to find my heart rate is just great.

Exactly what I wanted on my Fenix 5x. Big and easy to read and the beta 8.54 firmware on my device has finally resolved the current heart rate issues I was having. For me, worth the purchase. Great work

I was attracted to this watch face because other apps that show more information are too hard to read. All I really need is time, date, heart rate and battery life, and this app delivers those in an accessible package. I don't mind paying the license fee, given what I paid for the watch itself. I had a problem getting the license because I didn't understand that PayPal would email me a confirmation of my purchase, rather than show it on the web page. Once I checked my email, I was fine. It's hard to give five stars to a minimalist app :), but I'm happy to give it four.

Yes, it is minimalistic, but this was the main goal: Make most important data, best possible readable by using the display of the watch at it best. All the things are positioned in "1 pixel precision", that's why its only available for round watches with 240x240 pixel
