Large fonts time, health, temp and others


Retake as black on white of an existing design, because it offers the large font for time of day display.  The original design, from which I removed everything except the time display, is called "Digital Tide Graph" by RogerK available at

In order from left to right, up to down:

  • up left horizontal bar is the active minutes per week vs goal.
  • up left HR (large), garmin outside temperature (down right of HR), recovery time (above temperature), day of month (in the round circle).
  • garmin current wind speed kmh and direction (direction == from where comes wind).
  • at the right of temperature there is a flag which is black if there are unread messages.
  • watch battery horizontal bar decreasing right to left; then, at its right, the minimum HR of last night, or last few hours.
  • time of day, stress level (up right of time), body battery (below stress level).
  • bottom row: 'do not disturb' on, sun rise and sun set times, bluetooth connection status on.

Notes: some displayed numbers might get out of the canvas or overcome nearby numbers, but that is not a problem.  For example, the  leftmost '1' in HR when above 99, or the leftmost '1' of a 3-digit minimum HR, or the 1 in a 100% body battery - are such cases. The leftmost '1' in a 3-digit HR can be seen only partly and it is not a problem, because there can not be any other number than a ''1"; aditionally, when the HR is above 100 usually one is doing a physical activity, which has other screens.  The extra 1 at a 3rd position of min HR (e.g. minimum HR 100) means that there is a problem elsewhere with health or similar, and should be checked elsewhere urgently, maybe with a doctor; otherwise there should not be a 3-digit min HR, but always a 2-digit minimum HR.  The overlapping 1 in "100"% of body battery does not last more than a few minutes, in the morning at wakeup time; after a few minutes it goes to "99".

The goal of this design is to get as much as possible information displayed and readable too.

It is my current display on Garmin Instinct 2S Standard version, as of Dec. 19th, 2022.
