I’m a runner and I use Garmin watches to track them. When I got my first Garmin watch that supported custom watchfaces and applications, I couldn’t find a design that I liked.
Luckily, the Garmin platform is open for developers. And so I set out to design and develop my own watchface designs. This page shows the projects I made for the Garmin Connect IQ SDK.
Simple, minimal, and free designs
I like my running watch to look like a nice, minimalistic watch when I’m not running. This is something I hope my designs reflect. I also like other people to enjoy my designs, so every watch face design is free to use.
Interested in developing your own Garmin Watchface? I wrote a blogpost about my experience developing my first Garmin watch face. You can read it here.
Minimal Binary (3k+ downloads)
A minimalistic watchface that shows time using binary indicators.
Minimal Data (new)
A minimalistic watchface that displays time using squares for hours and small lines for minutes.
- Maximal Binary: a watchface showing time using one row of binary indicators for the current hour and one row of indicators for minutes.
- Data Viz Design: a watchface that shows time using a data-visualisation-like representation of hours and minutes.
