OtherI Fixes & Tweaks:

Thanks again!

Hi @enterprise.g22! Thanks for the report - we are looking into that right now. Will keep you posted!

Phone battery update still unreliable.

Stopped updating phone battery after a while.

Android Facer 4.5.9_86375

Watch battery life appears to be significantly reduced after the 4.2.7 installation (Tizen on Gear S3 Frontier.
I’ve tried plain faces without API-dependent features and turned off WiFi entirely. Still seems to be an issue.
Also tried rebooting the watch without any improvement. Changed to a stock watch face and battery life was back to normal, so it may be related to the Facer 4.2.7 update.

Any thoughts?

After the last update Facer froze and does not work. My Watch is Gear S2 SM-R720 Facer Ver.

It works when the AOD mode is active. If the AOD is not active, it will freeze. I do not want to use it with Gear S2 clock AOD mode. Please, correct it.

Having the same issue with all Facer faces… after install runs maybe 4-6 seconds then freezes.Gear S2…

Hi everyone! We’re aware of the issue (and very sorry about it!) on the Gear S2 where the watch face freezes when the screen turns on while dim mode is not enabled; we are rolling out a fix as soon as possible.

For now as a workaround, we can confirm that enabling ‘Watch Always On’ mode will fix the issue.

We will update the community as soon as the fix is available.

Thank you for your patience!

Having the same issue on my Gear Sport. Removed app from the watch and now battery is doing well. Would love to hear is facer has any ideas
