My grandpa was watchmaker and I am programmer and runner ;) ...This is analog watch face with five hands displaying some useful data like Sunrise/Sunset*, current phase of the Moon, altitude, daily steps and their progress towards the goal, 7-days history chart, burned or active calories, walked distance, heart rate**, etc. Highly configurable***.</p><p></p><p>(*) For Sunrise/Sunset computation the last known GPS position is used. If nothing is displayed, you have to fetch the current satellite data via any of the activity apps which uses GPS. Hint for MARQ series (!): use rather the 'Time Sync' with GPS from the system settings (seems to be a MARQ 'issue', thanks to Mario for letting me know).</p>


IMPORTANT: This watch face is FREE, but its development took me a lot of hours and I'm still trying to make it better (there were more than 96 upgrades until now :). Therefore, if you like it and use it regularly - please make a small donation to my PayPal account: (anything of a price of coffee would be highly appreciated ;) Thanks!</p><p></p><p>ACTUAL INFO: If you are iOS user and have an issue with the Garmin Connect app (it can't save WF settings), please upgrade your GC app to version 4.22.2 or use newer Connect IQ app instead. For more info look here:</p>

Good job!!!! Is posible black - red background ? Regards

My favorite watch face, by far. Plenty of configuration, excellent attention to details.

13 กันยายน 2562 | Version 7.09.0

Excellent face! Classic yet functional. Had it on F5, F6XPro. Covering all important data, under an elegant face.

12 กันยายน 2562 | Version 7.09.0

What can I say? Works not, completely not, on my fenix 3 HR. And I am living in the near of the famous valle joux, your grandfather has known for sure. Too bad, that it is not working for me. Well, what about stars? What I see, is cool, but if it is not working (see only the digital time of Garmin, no matters, what I do). Hm, I give a 3 stars, because your grandfather was a watchmaker. :-)

Do not panic! ... uninstall, reboot your watch, and install again. It must work.

My default watch face for while now. The amount of info versus clarity is perfect, and everything is customisable, including colours. Great support if you have questions too. Thoroughly recommended.

9 กันยายน 2562 | Version 7.08

Really like your watch-face. When do you expect to have Garmin Fenix 6 series available ?

9 กันยายน 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks! :) HandsFive (like many other watch faces) will be available for Fenix 6 series as soon as Garmin releases new CIQ SDK with their support.

3 กันยายน 2562 | Version 7.08

Hi, best watch face and beautiful, easy to use and configure. Yet I l o v e to have permanent moving second hand. It doesn't move at all.

3 กันยายน 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks, I am glad you like it! The second hand is not permanent, works just in full power mode on your wrist gesture. With this complexity of the watch face and antialiased fonts I can not implement 1Hz update (only for digital seconds in dual time).

2 กันยายน 2562 | Version 7.08

I can´t change anything, it doesnt save. What can I do????

3 กันยายน 2562, mbell-SVK

You can read the other comments (below) and/or watch face description!!!

1 กันยายน 2562 | Version 7.08

One of the best Watch face; as other suggest : please include in the data field temperature and pressure. Other question is it possible to delete the SMS icon ?

3 กันยายน 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! I would add the other data fields as well, but not all supported devices have them available. Also, due to already big complexity of this watch face it is very difficult to add new features because of memory limits.

Sergey Sergeechev
31 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Great watchface! Please remove the seconds in the double time feature that is below the date. Thanks.

3 กันยายน 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! Actually, there are more users who want to have permanent seconds then the opposite. I would do that as optional, but every such complication cuts off a piece of valuable system resources.

Great face. Would be perfect if you could add no flytime feature on descent mk1, would you? Will be very happy to donate!

Vladimir Babchynskyy

Excellent watch face! Thank you! For guys who currently have the issues with saving settings, on IOS, it is an issue with the Garmin app, and not only this watch face has issue with it. As a workaround, while we are waiting for the fix, it is possible to configure and save settings using Garmin express application on pc or mac (wired connection required). For the author, it is useful to add this temporary information with disclaimer into the description, because not everyone reading reviews.

3 กันยายน 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your nice feedback! ;) ...unfortunately, people don't like to read, doesn't really matter how many times it is written. To write a negative review is probably much easier for them. They don't deserve what I offer for free.

26 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Nice watch face, but it is not possible to change the parameters with an IPhone XR

26 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

AGAIN: Please, don't blame the watch face for what is the issue of Garmin Connect app. It is known bug in Garmin Connect app for iOS.

Anthony Parente
24 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Great face... won’t update settings on 5x Plus. Wonder why...

24 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

It is known bug in Garmin Connect app for iOS, has nothing to do with the watch face!

Chris Knight
14 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Hi. Love the watch face. You said previously that you need to use the app to configure it? Can you briefly explain how I should do this please

19 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Run Garmin Connect app from your phone (watch must be connected to the phone via BT and phone must be connected to the Internet): Menu/Garmin Devices/your device/Appearance/Watch Faces/HandsFive/Settings ...Do not forget to push "DONE" after your modifications.

Gal C.
14 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

I really love this watch face very much. It’s the best in all IQ faces!!! Here are some suggestions: I would like to add the option of “real-time temperature”.

13 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

The watch face is amazing and neat. Just one issue. The field data upon changing gives me a missing history error when i change something for the forerunner 245 music. Rectify that and it would be the best WF i have come across.

S Ferg

Best watch face I have seen yet. Haven't been able to figure out how to change the data fields yet though. Fenix 5X

10 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Thank you for your feedback! For the watch face settings you need to use Garmin Connect app or Garmin Express.

8 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Beautiful watch face. How can I get the colored day of the week like in the picture? Will donate happily.

9 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Thank you very much for your feedback! The colored week day is automatic, it becomes red only on Sundays. ;)

8 สิงหาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

The Best Watch Face all is OK

9 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks a lot!

The date renders too big on a Vivoactive 3. Font is too large. "MON 29" stretches all the way to the centre of the watch and not as shown in the example.

9 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! I cannot imagine how it could be different. In the example there is exactly how it looks on Vivoactive 3 in software simulator (one of the pictures) and it is the same on real device.

Todd Tucker

Best watch face I have downloaded to date.

Great watch face! More than happy to buy you a coffee (or two) at SB. Just donated.

9 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Many thanks for your support! I need a lot of coffee to keep me going... ;)

24 กรกฎาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Adding the option of enabling a seconds hand all time and the week number below the date field, will be amazing! Just the perfect watch face with that!

9 สิงหาคม 2562, mbell-SVK

Thanks for your feedback! The permanent second hand is not possible in combination with antialiased fonts like this, but you can switch on the digital time with permanent seconds below the date (instead of Moon phase). Week number can be displayed as well in the date field.

21 กรกฎาคม 2562 | Version 7.08

Absolutely mega!!!

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
