the weather can not be changed automatically

Since I choose the GPS mode, the weather can't be updated automatically. Even I have left the position for two weeks, the GPS location is still there. Please fix. Thanks.

Same issue. Using a GPS location from a month ago.

I have to leave my weather location set to manual, when I set it to GPS it reports that I am in Boston, Ma even though I am over 60 miles away in southern New Hampshire. Please fix.

This also happens to me... Android 4.4.2, Galaxy S5, Moto 360.
paulmurphy, 23.02.2015, 23:43
Android galaxy s5, moto360. Weather is permanently on my home city when set to gps. Never updates. I even downloaded Yahoo weather as my default weather notification app on my phone and registered it with the gps, but no improvement. I travle a lot. Having to reset the location manually all the time is a pain.

I am not able to get weather displayed for my location whether I have it on automatic or manual. I too have tried different weather services but to no avail. Can someone please let us know if this application will show the weather on a moto 360?

GPS days I'm in New London, CT but I'm actually southeast of Washington, DC. So the weather is really, really, really off.
Misha, 04.01.2016, 14:44
Same issue. My location doesn't update frequently. My current location is reporting my location from 10 days ago.
GARY WILKINS, 07.02.2016, 17:51
Tempature incorrect on all faces
Mashi, 16.02.2016, 05:05
Agreed. Please fix yahoo weather ASAP. Also good if add Google weather too.

Yahoo weather was working during the previous release....now it's broken again. Won't refresh if Weather settings are on Device GPS
Melissa, 09.10.2016, 06:22
I have the same issue. I have the yahoo,m weather app and when I'm not at home and I check the weather the watch will say like 39 degrees when the app itself says 69. They need to fix this
BoostinChick, 04.01.2017, 23:12
Pretty frustrating that the weather STILL does not update automatically. I get "GPS location unknown" and I have confirmed I have provided permissions to locations and GPS on my S7 Edge.
Robert, 23.02.2017, 12:11
I have the same phone and issue. It started with me when I upgraded to premium.
Patrick , 27.02.2017, 07:38
Got the same problem, only get error saying GPS locaties not found when try to use device GPS. Updating on manual location does work. Problem on Samsung s7 with Gear s3
Abilus, 05.05.2017, 19:50
Weather refresh is not working on Samsung S7 with Gear S3, doesn't matter if location is setup to GPS or Manual. All weather data is displayed initially and never updated.
Abilus, 05.05.2017, 19:53
Also, additionally to my previous message. Weather icons are not showing current weather status. In my case it always stay on 09d code with rain icon.
Mike, 12.05.2017, 13:48
Same problem - no weather updates on my Gear S3. The weather is updated within the WatchMaker app on my iPhone 6s when I view my watch face there. It just doesn't transfer to the watch. Actually, for a fraction of a second, I can see the update on the watch when I transfer the watch face from the phone to the watch but then it reverts back to the outdated weather.

Until this bug is fixed, does anyone know of a way to manually update the weather on the watch?

Kalvin, 23.05.2017, 18:11
Hello, Gear S3 here. Using GPS method the weather/location is not automatically updating. It used to until last month. I've passed numerous times in the G+ forum and I've gotten no response and nothing has changed. I still have to manually update it. Is there a good coming soon? Thank you.
Børge, 17.06.2017, 19:00
The same happens to me on my Samsung S3. If i change the weather provider to Openweathermap it is ok.
jerry stephens, 21.06.2017, 23:26
I travel all over the country and I used the weather feature all the time until it stopped working. I have to open watchmaker and update it manually. This has been a problem since last update.
Tony Huddleston, 03.08.2017, 18:04
Same issue. Location and temperature are stuck on my home location, but I'm out off state. Galaxy S7 Edge + Gear S2.
Jeff, 23.08.2017, 21:16
This has been an ongoing issue for me since 2015. Same bug. Weather works properly for a few months, then it just picks a location and gets stuck with that weather information.

Please for the love of god, fix this bug.

HTC 10, Moto 360 Sport

I have an Huawei watch and an iPhone 6 and use the app Android Wear. There is no update of the weather details on my watch. Is it a bug or is the combination of the watch and the phone? I can uplo new faces without any problems.
Bill, 27.09.2017, 13:27
I have a Moto 360 and an iPhone 6. It's always 59 degrees no matter where I'm at or when it is. My Android works great. Is this a limitation iOS has with Watchmaker?
Zamri, 21.10.2017, 07:18
I see all this comment dated back since 2015 and it seems never get fixed. Else have to look for other watch face maker
Robert Hayes, 25.11.2017, 17:42
This issue persists. I have to question why this issue seems to have not been addressed appropriately for at least 2 years. Note 8 / Gear S3.
Riptide, 08.12.2017, 14:47
Samsung sport watch here same issue is there any fix
Ric, 22.01.2018, 15:45
I have an iPhone 8+ (same problem on an iPhone 6+) with a moto 360 v2 running Android wear 2.0 and the weather does not update on the watch faces. The weather app works on Facer as well as the google store app instaweather. It also shows correctly on the watchmaker app before it is sent to the watch. I would love to have this feature work!
AlexCurran, 07.02.2018, 10:28
Fixed now for iPhone + Android Wear combination
Tomm, 11.02.2018, 03:16
Is there a fix for this yet? I have a TAG Connected paired with an iPhoneX. The weather never updates
Peter, 14.02.2018, 16:26
I just got a gear s3 with my IPhone. Unfortunately no weather updates on the watchfaces. I can send updates from the phone’s app without a problem. In the phone’s app under settings-weather, there is an option to “set up weather updates on watch” but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything either. Anybody got this to work yet?
Gerhard, 19.02.2018, 06:54
Same issue, weather and altitude don’t update S3 and 6+
Lee Lewis, 22.03.2018, 13:06
Watchmaker weather doesn't auto update. Last update was 20.24 yesterday and it's now 14.30 . Set to hourly ! Please fix
Andy, 15.01.2019, 18:03

Peter, 30.01.2019, 10:04
Same issue here it's been 40 degrees and the watch sits on 26. Why isn't it fixed or is there a work around
Boreal, 08.02.2019, 16:14
No Weather read in LG URBAN Android
Bruno Marangoni, 28.02.2019, 12:50
Weather does not update automatically on Galaxy Watch and Note 9.
AlexCurran, 20.03.2019, 21:49
Yahoo Weather changed their API.
Fix is our for Google, iPhone and Wear OS.
Waiting for Samsung to approve.
datamg, 19.06.2019, 10:19
Weather doenst update or phone battery. This was fixed in a prevoius release of watchmaker and worked on Galaxy Gear S3 but is not working on Galaxy Watch
JDBreeze1, 03.10.2019, 01:59
I have the location set to use GPS from phone and watch, but it's not working. OpenWeatherMap is not accurate, and Yahoo doesn't update. Yahoo will even revert back to a location from days ago, even if I do a force refresh. The location doesn't seem to be using the watch GPS at all. I have a Fossil Sport.
Patrick Smeets, 26.11.2020, 05:38
Weather is not updating. Even if I click on update weather function in the watchface, it won't update the weather and/or location.... Please fix this.
Jo Arriola-Seymour, 02.12.2020, 20:21
After several comments above regarding weather bug, I’m experiencing the same . Seems like no one bothers to get this sprouted. Please
Jo Arriola-Seymour, 02.12.2020, 22:58
Same issue. Looks like after tons of complains no one bothers say ooop our subscribers are not getting their money worth so better address it !?!? So , please advise if you will fix this as it is quite frustrating esp to paying clients !!!!
Chuck Pitsch, 10.12.2020, 03:46
I'm having weather updates issues on my app. Changed setting on my Galaxy Gear S3 to Wifi = auto. Never sync's up with my stock weather app. What's up? Where's the support on this app I paid for??
Barry, 09.02.2021, 05:30
Huawei Gen1/Google Pixel

My watch has suddenly stopped updating weather, even when I use manual update via tap action

This is recent, it has been working flawlessly for several years.

I can only update with watchmaker through the weather update within settings.

The tap action works when watchmaker is open on my phone.
tom, 22.02.2021, 05:49
Same for me very recent behavior !!!
Barry, 25.03.2021, 02:20
Same here
The watch face I designed *years* ago just recently stopped auto & tap action weather updates, including location.
Please fix!
LYLE, 01.05.2021, 05:06
Same here. Weather location not updating, only with the app open. TWP3 + Samsung Note 10
Marcello, 04.05.2021, 17:39
