    Default Vivoactive HR -- stopwatch app/widget with large numbers?

    My wife recently upgraded her smartwatch, so I inherited her Vivoactive HR. I'm not so interested in all the widgets/apps, so I've stripped it down to time and HR. But... The resident stopwatch face numbers are too small for me to see without readers, not so conducive for the only time I use the stopwatch (on the trainer).

    Does anyone know of a large-font stopwatch app/widget for this unit?

    TIA.

    Can you pair it with your iPhone (if you have one) as a heart rate monitor and thereby add it to Strava, then run all your trainer sessions through Strava? That should get the numbers larger.

    I can link it to my Android phone via the bluetooth connection I guess. I don't track HR in my workouts, it's just a curiosity that I look at occasionally.

    Maybe if you can edit the display elements?

    Ah, so I tried a bunch of things, starting with that link. Then I figured out that's not the same watch.
