DIN Time watch face

DIN Time is a clean, glanceable, watch face available for the Fitbit Ionic, Fitbit Versa and the Pebble Smartwatches. The watch face is based on the DIN 1451 Engschrift typeface. Time is aligned along the right or left side so it will always be the first you see when you pull up your sleeve to glance at the time.

On the Pebble platform it consistently was in the top 10 of most liked watch faces, currently it holds #8, with nearly 80,000 installs.

Features of DIN Time for Fitbit watches:

  • Time in big, easy to read, DIN Engschrift.
  • Fully customizable colors (Colors will reset to default every 2 hours during a 48 hour trial period. After that a one-time payment of $1.99 is required.)
  • Preset themes and share theme colors with other users!
  • Layout options for left or right-hand use, so you can glance in any way you like!
  • Most parts of the watch face can be hidden.
  • Weather, provided by Yahoo, with custom icons and temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
    Forecast (in dashed box) with expected high and low temperature for the day.
    Tap the stats box for even more weather data.
  • Activity stats
  • Battery level


DIN Time with a custom color preset.

DIN Time for Pebble also has:

  • Day of week in many languages.
  • Bluetooth disconnect warning (with optional vibration).
  • Optional periodic vibration every 60, 30 or 15 minutes.
  • Quiet time (no vibrations) between set hours.
  • Fully customizable colors on color Pebbles.


DIN Time for Pebble is free to download and use. I have spent hundreds of hours on DIN Time, I had to learn the programming language from start, and released more than 15 versions since March 2015, each one adding features and improvements.  If you appreciate my work and want to say thanks please consider donating.


Please use the support contact form or send me an email using the Contact Developer links on the respective platform.  But please check the FAQ first!

    Nice watch face, but the weather isn’t updated regularly. I’ve set update weather each 30 minutes, but period is mush longer and some times I need to go to the setting and push them to the watch to start weather update.

  2. Kehweir Chen says:

    Just want to say THANKS and looking forward to see the steps showing in the DIN TIME. You make my Pebble perfect.

  3. John Hildebrand says:

    I love thus watch face! Thank you!

  4. Amr says:

    Big thumbs UP for you! this is the best watch face on Pebble store, period. I’ve tried many, but every time I go back to DIN Time. Waiting for health options.
    Good Job man!

  5. Ronald says:

    Great tine app for Pebble. Have tried many others and always came back. Health is great but i have two suggestions for further improvement: enable switching black on white for better readability and enable switching from time to time by pressing button rather the double flicking. This would enable to read the massive amount of information better. When done i will certainly donate.

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      If you mean inverting the screen on black and white Pebbles that is already possible. Check below the preview image in the settings page. If you mean for color Pebbles you can load one of the many color presets. There’s a black and white there. As for using buttons to invoke actions that’s not possible in watch faces.

  6. Ronald says:

    Christian, i have meant only the health display which appears after a double shake. The time display i have set with my preferred colors. For the health display there is no such option…White on black looks good but readeability is bad. Also the time display returns too fast. Hence i had suggested to switch back by button press…

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      You can already set colors for the pop-up in the weather settings dialog in the settings page. In the next version you will be able to set the time for how long the pop-up will be shown, but as I said buttons don’t work in a watch face.

  7. Ronald says:

    Phantastic, i was not aware that this also can be defined. For the switching of pages would it also be possible to leave the health display till the next double shake? That way everybody could take as much or less time for the health display as required.

  8. Debbie Hellmann says:

    Thanks for the health connection! Love it

  9. Yuan CHAO says:

    It’s a very nice watch face, especially looks good on Pebble Time Round. Thank you! Would it be possible to keep the compatibility with FW 3.14?

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      Thank you! No, it’s too much work keeping two separate builds. I’d you don’t upgrade your firmware I think you should still be able to use the last version built for that firmware though.

  10. Heiko Hartmann says:

    This is my preferred watch face for my Pebble!
    However, with the latest 4.0 FW, the timeline quick views are overlapping the minutes when they are displayed. Are you working on reacting to these quick views?

  11. GilberT says:

    I searched a lot, but all I tried, missing something. DIN TIME is simply the final touch that needs a Pebble Time Steel.

    Thanks a lot, this is a great job.

  12. Kevin says:

    DIN Time is my Go To watchface on my PTS. I love it. Thanks so much! I’m glad to hear that you will be implementing Timeline Peek. I want to see the pop-ups, but not being able to see the time fully when one is on the screen is driving me nuts. Any ETA on when Timeline Peek will be ready on DIN Time?

    Hiya! I have been a Pebble woman for a couple years now (& yes, sad about the recent recentness). I have been looking for a reliable watchface with the “Real Feel” temperature since I (super excitedly) got my Pebble Time.
    So many thanksnesses!
    I would always search, “real feel”, “wind chill”, “humidity” & “humidex” in the app store, with very little luck. I just found this one by clicking on a photo I saw of the watchface, because I liked the way it looked =) Just a wee suggestion ~ put those keywords in for searching, if you can. The watchface is poifect. No suggestions for that! hehe.
    Take care & stuff!

    It seams the pebble servers have been shutdown. So I can no longer get the watch face. It is the one I use, but my watch reset and now I only have the defaults. Do you plan to publish the binary so we can side load the app?

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      The app store servers are still online. Please check again and make sure you have the latest version of the Pebble app. It got updated last week. But if the servers eventually goes down I will host the binary here.

      • Robert says:

        Interesting, I can not even do a search, and when I click on one of the items on the first screen it just times out. Even the links to the DIN watch face that I have found will open the pebble app but then it times out. I am using iPhone by the way.

  15. Helge says:

    Deleting and reinstalling did it for me to. Thanks. Was quit worried when everything suddenly dissapered on my first holiday. Now happy again.

  16. Sven from Germany says:

    Hello Christian,
    i think you did a good job. I have your DIN watch face as my favorite. It is good readable and i see all information i need.
    Thank You

  17. Andrew says:

    Hi, and thanks for your fantastic watchface!

    With the shutdown of Pebble servers scheduled for June 2018, I’m wondering if you would consider support for GadgetBridge:


    There is a workaround for weather data described in detail here:


    Any chance that this could work with DIN Time…?

  18. Lennardt says:

    I use this watchface since I owed my first pebble a couple of years ago.
    I have a question regarding pebbles Webservices being shut down maybe middle of 2018:
    Will you publish a version which runs with gadgetbridge or the offline pebble app from there on? I’d really be sad to lose your watchface

    • Christian Liljeberg says:

      I will have to look into it, but I don’t see why it shouldn’t continue to work with the Pebble app after there server shutdown. Gadgetbridge is another thing. As I understand it they need to adapt gadgetbride to DIN Time, not the other way round.

      • Lennardt says:

        Ok, I will wait what happens when pebble actually goes offline. I tested gadgetbridge and it seems to work, except for configuring settings.
        Thank you for creating and sharing this great watchface!

  19. Aprilia says:

    where can i get it? how much it cost?

  20. Frank says:

    Hi Christian. Thanks for din time. Weather stopped updating for months now. It always shows 4 celsius.
    I’m on a Pebble time steel.
