Apologies for the lack of updates - we are trying to make sure we inform you only when there is progress.
The issue was confirmed by Google and we are working with the WearOS team to solve it. For those interested in the technical details, the crux of it is that direct access to Google Fit data from watch faces isn't functional anymore since a recent update of WearOS. This was not intentional and is being corrected on the Google side.
Unfortunately as of today, the issue is still present. While we wait for the fix, we are looking into ways to bypass Google Fit altogether to reactivate steps data, but these ways are typically not very accurate.
In the meantime, one workaround if you would like your Google Fit steps visible on a watch face is to use faces that use WearOS complications, like the ones listed here: https://www.facer.io/explore/feature/complications/popular?feature=complications
On any of these faces, you can update the data shown in the complication (just long press on the face, then tap edit, and tap the complication you'd like to change). If you select Google Fit and steps data, it should work that way.
Thanks for your patience while we solve this with Google for all Facer faces!
