Apple Watch Phone Battery

I know that most complications on apple side only update every 15 minutes or so but I did a face for a friend and he wanted his phone battery. Told him didnt know if it would work but will try. Made a custom slot thru in the #PBN# (seems to return 100 always) and #PBP# (seems to return --% always). Did I miss something or Apple just being Apple :pensive:

I’ve used #BLP# & #BLN# on my apple watch faces, and nobody has ever complained that they haven’t worked. Try those out and see if they work out.

The documents say no Phone battery on Apple watches . I know things are changing all the time . Just when we think we have found a Beta Tester they Disappear .

@russellcresser @bradtc . Thanks guys. I thought as much, but had to try. Will be back in full swing soon on here I hope, the real world has had me tired down of late. More work to do than people willing to work to do them.

That’s weird, no apple support for battery, and no complaints when implemented. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When some of us were testing it all out a while ago now, we found out that Phone Battery and lots of other things didn’t work properly on Apple. :pensive:

@bradtc I think the #BLN# and #BLP# work as they are the watch battery. I normally use the apple builtin comp for that as most apple users like it. #PBN# and #PBP# are tags for phone battery. I believe this quit working across the whole platform for a month or two but is now working. ( On Android anyway). Was hoping if not a Facer tag maybe someone knew an apple way to do it. Wish I had docs on all the apple complications that are available

Yeah, Apple makes it hard though. Great hardware but they keep there software management extremely formed. ‘You shall not put that there’ is sad. I did see an app in the apple store that claimed it was an apple face with phone battery thru complication being provided data by companion phone app. So there is a way if wanted bad enough.
