I did download ‘ActiFace’ into my new (2-days old) MARQ Expedition when I happened to spot ‘Crystal’. It, in its default cool mint blue, looked cool. Also was not too busy. Stylish.
I downloaded it. It came up, no problems. Quickly customized it (as shown in top picture) via Garmin Connect. Kept it simple, just to the main fields I like. With all the widgets on the MARQ I really don’t need more than this on my watch face.
I tried some other colors. Nothing was as cool as this default blue. So, I am sticking with it. I like it. I think it looks good on the MARQ.
On Thursday, while my Fenix 5 Plus was connected to ‘Garmin Express‘ I out of idle curiosity looked at what new watch faces were available at Connect IQ.
The ‘MagicDust‘ beta caught my eye. As you can see it does have a resemblance to ActiFace.
Downloaded it. No issues. Came up at once.
I have been too busy to sit down and customize it as yet. Appears that it has a TON of settings.
I like it. It has a certain quality and charm to it.
I am going to keep it on and see what I can do with it.
I will keep you posted.

Notice the “Donation Setting”.
The icons have been changed. I think it looks better.
The BIG change, however, is that there is a “DONATION” setting — in Garmin Connect. Unless you ENABLE it YOUR user settings are NOT ACTIVATED. You don’t have to make a donation! You just need to acknowledge that you have seen the “DONATION” setting. I actually DID make a small donation. Only fair. It has to be a lot work. So, I was cool with that. I think we should only consider making a donation.
Here is the New Documentation.
They Really Do Have ‘Rolex’ Watch Faces For The ‘Garmin Fenix 5’ For REAL — After My Joke Suggestion.
My post, on this blog, from a few months ago.
Today, I got an e-mail from a Garmin ‘insider’ telling me that two Rolex watch faces are indeed available in the ‘Garmin Connect IQ store’.
I went looking. Sure enough.
Yes, I downloaded them. They didn’t blow me away. Appears that you have to PAY for the ‘read’ face. I might do that when I get a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus.
I don’t think either is as good as the watch face I created, in minutes, on PowerPoint.
I couldn’t resist.
Took me less than a minute to dash this off using PowerPoint and post it. But, I did provide some MAJOR clues.
Got me me thinking.
Well I was having so much fun and it only takes me seconds — on PowerPoint. So, I did this too. Those who know me will appreciate the IRONY.
