Anyone using watchmaker on IOS having trouble loading weather information?

I can't get weather information to shown on any watch faces on ios watchmaker app.

Anyone got a suggestion how to fix this issue?

I can add watchmaker to my phone but can’t add it to my watch even when I serch it in the watch app on my phone I can pick faces I like. I purchased the premium package but there is no cloud sync on my watch to turn off and I can get them to send but I don’t know where they go, a little frustrated if I could get some help it would be appreciated so I’m not wasting money, time & energy my phone # 6235479255 my email is at the top, thank you.

Not sure why this app is available to buy for iOS when it isn't completely functional. If I paid through the App Store I would ask for my money back for misleading information. Seriously.

Weather is updated this week - there is nothing in the iOS app's description that it doesnt already do today on iOS.

More features are being added every week for iOS users!

Please wait for WatchMaker 4.1.5 - I have submitted it to Apple which will allow you to send weather.

4.1.5 for Android Wear will also be released this week.

Looking forward to sending weather info to my ticWatch 2!!

Should be nice.. if i bought the app on ios get the premium app too for the watch

Still not getting weather to show up after updating to WatchMaker iOS version 4.1.5. Is there something else I need to do besides update the app? Watch is a Gear S3.
AlexCurran, 05.04.2017, 08:43
Watch and phone both need 4.1.5

I am still waiting for Samsung to approve 4.1.5

thanks alex curran the update works like a charm. now i can see the weather in the watch and the send problem is solved. for those who cant make it work. u must go to watchmaker /settings/other/tap on TRANSFER SETTINGS TO WATCH. and thats it.

alex do u think will be possible to see battery of phone in next updates. ??
Mike, 07.04.2017, 01:46
Hi. Any idea how long Samsung takes to approve? Thanks.
SKYMASTER, 19.04.2017, 16:38
Is it possible to make that the weather updates from the native app of the watch? i man when you tap on the icon of the weather it updates from the watch.
Mike, 20.04.2017, 02:38
Hi Alex,

I still can't find Watchmaker Companion version 4.1.5 for iOS on the Samsung Galaxy App Store. In fact, I can no longer find any version of Watchmaker Companion. Could you please look into this? I tried contacting Samsung but I'm not getting anywhere with them.


AlexCurran, 20.04.2017, 06:24
Sorry it got removed in the last update by mistake. Samsung are currently reviewing the update which will return it to the Galaxy Apps store for iOS.
Mike, 27.04.2017, 15:30
Hi Alex. Any idea how long it will take Samsung? Your app has been missing for over three weeks now. I tried contacting them by email and phone. They said that they would consider adding it to the store if there were enough requests. Thanks.
AlexCurran, 27.04.2017, 15:40
Well the more requests might help them speed up the process.
For some reason they asked me to change the build so it has deeplink to iOS app even though it was not previously needed.
Still waiting for their feedback.
Mike, 10.05.2017, 23:56
Hi Alex. Still no original or update to Watchmaker for iOS on the Galaxy App Store. I am still not getting anywhere in my communications with Samsung about it. Is there any way we can get hold of and install the app without going through the Samsung App Store? Any other suggestions? I really want to get the weather working on the watch faces. Thanks.
olbap008, 20.04.2017, 15:13
Alex, yesterday i restored my huawei watch to stock and now i have problems for sending faces to the watch from my iphone.
AlexCurran, 11.05.2017, 08:26
It should be back on Samsung store for iOS now
Mike, 11.05.2017, 13:11
Found and installed the update. The weather now works! Thanks!
Mike, 11.05.2017, 18:52
I thought it was working. Unfortunately the weather isn't getting updated regardless of the weather provider of if I am using gps or manual. Am I missing something or is this a bug that needs to get fixed? Thanks.
Rick, 02.06.2017, 21:55
Weather is not working on IOS for me. Neither does the calendar.

IOS 10.3.1
Watchmaker 4.2.9 Premium
Huawei Watch 2
Android Wear 2.0

Great program otherwise. Thank you.
Richt, 22.06.2017, 06:34
Weather not correct on any watch face. IOS, Huawei Watch 1, Android 2, Watchmaker 4.3.3. It shows correct on the face in the App but does not when it transfers to the watch. How do I fix this or if it a bug on the app, when will you fix it.
AlexCurran, 22.06.2017, 07:50
go on phone to watchmaker /settings/other/tap on TRANSFER SETTINGS TO WATCH

make sure cloudsync is running on watch
Richt, 22.06.2017, 12:45
Thanks Alex, that has worked but will it update automatically on the watch face?
JR, 15.11.2017, 01:12
Hi Alex,

Don’t see watchmaker companion on Samsung s app. Is it just going through updates and will show up soon?

countBasil, 15.01.2019, 00:23
With iPhone XS Max + Ticwatch E: no matter what I do, WatchMaker watch face always fails to update weather, saying "No Wi-Fi available - unable to update weather".... Even if I AM connected to WiFi. Other watch faces work.

Also, no way from iPhone app to make a tap trigger watch to launch weather(only update it, which doesn't work :( )

I love the system and grateful for iPhone app for designing, but think will be cancelling subscription until some iPhone issues addressed: weather update fix at least...also wishing for timer function like the stopwatch function, or at least ability to launch watch's timer app...!

@AlexCurran, any chance these are on the horizon?
AlexCurran, 15.01.2019, 09:49
There is an issue with wifi on iPhone to Wear OS at the moment owing to last update of Google Wear OS app. There will be a new version of the app released by Google shortly.
countBasil, 16.01.2019, 20:01
Wanted to let you know in case it helps: Pujie Black and Minimal & Elegant have no problem retrieving weather with current iPhone app
countBasil, 18.01.2019, 03:58
Unfortunately after updating to the Wear OS app today (1/17/19), I get the same error when trying to update the weather, even if the phone is connected to wifi (as before).

Here's the version info from the Wear OS app: http://snpy.in/y2YlfN

I signed up for a week of WatchMaker to see whether the weather update would work if I used the new iPhone version to modify my watch face and re-upload to the watch. I still get the "No Wi-Fi available - unable to update weather" :(

Canceling subscription again--ideally would ask for a refund, but please just fix this :) Would love to know when fixed so I know when to re-subscribe!

Thanks, Aaron
countBasil, 15.01.2019, 21:29
Awesome, thanks :)

Any chance of letting us iPhone users set "tap" to launch other watch apps (especially weather and timer!) ??
