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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Are you referring to location or weather updates?
