Can be found here: SHN TxD II-E

Complete user guide, pictures, settings example can be found Here

StarStarStarStarStarIf you like it, please consider a review/rate, that will help me a lot and encourage me to improve it


Please check your API level here:

ALTITUDE-PRESSURE-TEMPERATURE: not available for API inf2.4.0, and available for devices with sensors.

WEATHER from OpenWeatherMap: not available for API inf2.4.0 and for the Instinct Crossover due to memory limitation.

WEATHER from Garmin: available from API 3.2.0, some devices like F5+ can’t have it

Body Battery-Stress-Respiration-Time to recovery: available from API 3.3.0

Instinct Crossover: Please see the user guide, due to memory limitation some functions are not available


A position is needed to calculate it.

for compatible devices, GPS from mobile is used to calculate it,

but overridden by the GPS from your device if you use it so that it can be calculated without mobile if needed.

To get a GPS signal from your device: open an activity (without CIQ data filed) and wait for green GPS signal, then go back to the watchface.

!!!!!!!! Sunset/Sunrise are not the same thing as Dusk/Dawn !!!!! if you found an offset turn off "Dusk/Dawn" option.

Tips: if you put Sun Event on Ring data, put Current Time on Arrow Data to see where you are on the timelapse.


- Only available from CIQ 2.4.0 devices

- For compatible device (from CIQ 3.2.0) Garmin weather can be used, to use Garmin weather, just let the API key field empty.

- For others or if you prefer weather from OpenWeatherMap, please get an API here:

subscribe for a free account, you will get the API key, put it in the settings.

After the API creation, it may take up to 2 hours to be activated.

- In order to have both of them work, your device needs to know your position, for CIQ3.2.0+, the position from your mobile is used,

For infCIQ3.2.0, you need to get a GPS signal (and every time you move far), see SunEvent section.

For both of them:

-Make sure PRO code is right entered.

-Make sure Garmin Connect App (Android/IOS) runs on the background.

-Make sure Garmin Connect app has all permissions (background/Location etc).

Permissions can be cleared in case of IOS/Garmin connect updates.

-Make sure GPS is turned “on” on your phone and your phone has access to the internet.


-Make sure your device is well connected with your phone.

FONT SIZE: please see the user guide, there is a note about this.

FAQ: the arrow, symbol around the ring is the arrow data and it stands what you set it for (see the settings)


Known issue (which means I work on it)

- crash if a blank space or wrong color are put on custom progress bar color

- Move bar which does not display the right color

- crash on some device with move bar

  • Hi, sorry this is not possible at all, a watchface can't control the sensor or the light, you have to do it through the device settings.

  • SHN TacXIIE IS excellent!!!! Exactly what I've been looking for. The others look awesome as well. Can't wait for more!

  • Please make data field temperature+wind info+icon or temperature+wind info as in previous shn txd (tactix d style)&. Thank you

  • Please make data field temperature+wind info+icon or temperature+wind info as in previous shn txd (tactix d style)&. Thank you!

  •  hi, it can already be done, please check the settings

  • in this picture: Data1 = Temperature +icon, Title1 = wind information

  • SHN TxD GW is the best watch face for me, always recommend it to all of my friends.
    On Fenix 6 with SHN TxD GW all were perfect:
    Bought Fenix 7 and switching to SHN TxD II-E. Trying to place min/max and current temperature in one cell, but temperature's last digit overlaps ring marks:
    Current temperature is more important for me then min/max, so current is in data field (bigger font) and min/max is in title field.
    Tried switch data3 and data4, but in data3 temperature's icon moved to the right, and now the first digit overlaps the ring marks:
    So in both cases (left and right placement) icon in the center, and digits on the edge. 
    As far as I understand, the watch face already knows how to place the icon on the left or right depending on whether the right cell is selected or the left one, but for some reason with the current settings the order is reversed compared to how it was before. I believe that if we set it up as before - the numbers are in the center, and the icon is on the edge, the icon will not reach the ring marks and everything will look perfect again.
  • hi, that is the way the SHNTxD II-E works now, and on your picture I can't see any overlapping, I mean the arrow "overlap the same " as the 13 in your picture. the difference is when the text will be longer, the Feel like won't show up in order to avoid overlapping.  " and the icon is on the edge, the icon will not reach the ring marks and everything will look perfect again." in my case, right now (with 7PRO) on the GW the icon is on the edge marks, so putting it like before won't solve your "overlap"

  • PS on some other device and conditions, the icon on the GW "overlaps" also in the same way, so there is no difference except the place of icon EDIT: I chnged it because I had many many complete about the "old way", so what will be perfect for you will be bad for many others... I try to do my best but I guess it is impossible to make everyone "happy"
