Garmin Watchfaces – It’s Bacon Time!

October 27, 2015

The recent lineup of sport watches like the Garmin Forerunner 920t or the Fenix 3 have lots of options and features for the ambitious athlete to train more effectively and to monitor the results.
You can choose the right information for your special training, matching your demands from a vide variety of data fields. Pace, Distance and elapsed time are just a fraction of the informations a modern sports watch is able to display.

But besides these, I call it „serious“, features, there are some which are just for fun and which make you smile.

The Garmin Connect IQ™-Shop offers data fields like „beers earned“ by an activity or a wide variety of watch faces for installation on their sports watches.



Many additional software pieces were developed by hoppy developers, which where looking for new useful features and who made them are available for all users through the Garmin Connect IQ™-Shop.

Yesterday I discovered a great watch face and I just have to introduce it to you. It is called the „Bacon and Eggs Clock“ developed by keizen. And of course, blogging about „earnyourbacon“ I need to have this watch face on my watch. It displays the hours by baconstrips, the 10 mins by Eggs (sunny side up 🙂  ) and the minutes by coffee cups.

It is a little hard to read, especially in the morning with my eyes half closed. But honestly, just saying „It is six baconstrips, four eggs and 8 coffecups late“ when someone asks you for the time, is worth it, isn’t it?

      Gibt es doch sogar mit Katzis 🙂 Du brauchst mal ne ordentliche Laufuhr! Eine mit Katzenhintergrund! Alles andere ist unwichtig.
