weather check interval has no effect

The automatic weather refresh does not work. Only when the App is opened on the phone, the weather is updated.

I'm having the same issue, but for a manually entered location only.

Yes same issue weather not updating in addition to that location is also not updating.
JohnofBothwell, 02.06.2016, 09:19
Same issue. I have tried OpenWeatherMap, Yahoo Weather, and Weather Underground. also tried 30 mins and 1 hour. No updating on any setting. I can manually update by going into the properties on Watchmaker, then properties, and pressing 'Refresh Weather Now'. Very, VERY annoying.
Loochie, 05.08.2016, 13:47
Now mine updated too much. I have interval set to 12 hours and wunderground keeps saying I'm requesting updates at 16 per hour which exceeds the api agreement. Please fix this asap

Same problem here, weather and location is not updating
RogueQD, 14.01.2017, 06:13
I have tried all the weather providers using manual location and openweather using gps. None update automatically although setting a tap action to update weather works. Huawei watch.
RogueQD, 14.01.2017, 08:52
Adding this script works as a work around. 0.02084 is 30 mins.

var_wudt = 0

function on_second(dt)
if {dtp} > var_wudt + 0.02084 or {dtp} < var_wudt - 0.5 then
var_wudt = {dtp}

Even with the script I wrote above, when I wake up in the morning the weather doesn't update until/unless I open the watchmaker app on my phone.
AlexCurran, 23.02.2017, 13:47
Are you referring to location or weather updates?
Harald_C, 16.04.2017, 09:23
No Weather update with Android Wear 2 in connection with Watchmaker Pro on iOS. Could send the Weather once by transfer settings from phone app to the watch (LG Urbane) but the weather is not updating on the watch itself afterwards (manual location, 30 minutes Intervall set).
Quite annoying as it was working fine with AW 1.5 and WM on Android.
Do I need to do any change of the settings or is it a bug, which needs to be fixed?

I have the same problem with a samsung gear s3
David Anderson, 28.06.2017, 11:28
Same problem with LG Urbane and IOS on iPhone here.
John Orion, 28.06.2017, 16:37
Im having the same issue with LG Urbane and Android
AlexCurran, 06.07.2017, 08:18

Dmob, 08.07.2017, 16:10
Doesn't work on ticwatch2 running 4.4.3.
Roger, 13.09.2017, 12:14
Ive tried different faces and even thou on the phone it shows F for the weather on my watch it stays on C. Different numbers. Help how to make it F for tthe weather?
russhsrris, 18.01.2018, 14:13
It is wild that the problem still exist and it is 2018. Weather and location are not uodating still gear s3 here.
cabania, 20.01.2018, 11:38
Same here with Huawei Smartwach. Very annoying!
Roland Wacker, 22.03.2018, 09:22
Weather doesnt Update on Gear S3 (Tizen 3.0.1) with Android Wear it is working fine
Jimmy Phan , 01.06.2018, 18:26
Same on my ticwatch E paired with my oneplus 5. Weather and phone battery level doesn't update automatically unless I open the watchmaker app then it'll update. Even the tap action to update weather doesn't work unless I open the app.
AlexCurran, 18.06.2018, 20:22
is this new behaviour or if you always seen this?
Chuck, 17.12.2018, 23:18
Has this weather problem still not been solved after years of thousands of people writing about it all over the Internet? The weather will not update at all on any watchmaker face. No definitive answer by anyone on earth?
Richard Alber, 08.01.2019, 15:14
Doesn't update on my Ticwatch E. Did on 1/2/19 and not again
Jay, 08.01.2019, 20:26
Same issue with my Gear S2 (connected to Pixel 2XL).
John Lynch, 31.01.2019, 07:12
Same on my ticwatch 2, won't update weather or phone battery level automatically, it's driving me nuts. What's the point of using watchface if it doesn't work properly? I see loads of comments back to 2015, its now 2019 but no solutions, poor service by the developer!
Sp Cram, 04.02.2019, 10:59
Pas de mise a jour également de weather.... Des idées en français...
Steve Flowers, 15.08.2019, 01:18
On my Galaxy watch the weather never updates automatically
Don Seiford, 20.08.2019, 16:26
I have the same issue. The watch face displays what's in the weather settings in the phone app. The issue is the phone app doesn't update unless I go into the app and manually tap the Refresh Weather Now.

I switched watches from an LG Urbane to a Gear S3. This used to work on the LG Urbane,
Andy, 31.12.2019, 22:03
Same. I have a Galaxy Active 2 and have tried all 3 weather options but none update unless I manually update it.
Ross, 04.05.2020, 03:16
How has this been going on for 5 years unresolved? I've had loads of different makes of smart watch with different OS. None work. That's rubbish.
Barry Chase, 09.02.2021, 05:31
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 writing settings.

The tap action works when watchmaker is open on my phone.
Mary, 16.03.2021, 03:17
Weather won't update on Galaxy Active anymore
RJohnsonESQ, 26.03.2021, 15:29
Still not working. Galaxy Watch/S21 Ultra. I even have that script from RogueQD setup. Weather still won't update unless I open Watchmaker and manually send the face to my phone.
