Garmin has announced Face-It, a watch face app that lets Connect IQ compatible wearable users customise their watch face with any photo from their mobile device. Users simply download the free app from either the Apple App Store or on Google Play, then select an image from their photo library, choose their clock style and send it wirelessly to their device for a completely customized watch face.
“We’re excited to announce the Face-It app which brings watch face customisation to the fingertips of the user,” said Adam Howarth, General Manager Garmin Australasia. “With Face-It your watch face options are no longer limited to those available to everyone – you can completely personalise your device to reflect you.”
Connect IQ is Garmin’s first foray into delivering tools for third-party developers. It allows users to customise their Garmin device by downloading free apps, watch faces and data fields. Since its announcement in 2014, Connect IQ has grown to offer over 2000 apps, and has delivered over 13 million downloads and updates to customers.
The Face-It app can create custom watch faces for the following Connect IQ compatible wearables: fēnix® 3, fēnix 3 HR, vívoactive®, vívoactive HR, Forerunner® 230, Forerunner 235, Forerunner 630, Forerunner 735XT, Forerunner 920XT, D2™ Bravo, D2 Bravo Titanium, epix™, quatix® 3 and tactix® Bravo.
