New Facer update draining battery

The newest Facer update asked for location permission in order to give accurate weather. Nothing wrong with that, I figured. But now, because of that, Facer has my GPS turned on all the time, even if the watchface doesn’t have weather on it, and that severely impacts my battery life. I have a Huawei Watch 2. Anything I can do to improve things?

Exactly the same problem for me. I am using Huawei Watch 2.

I’d like to bump this, having the exact same issue also with the Huawei Watch 2.
Must be some weird compatibility issue…
Keep up the good work Facer!

FYI - we are looking into a fix for this. Hoping to release it this week. Thanks for your patience!

@yoni.shurygin @anthso @JDBreeze1 can you try the new beta and see if it helps?

Any update from users who tried the beta?

I wanted to give it a day to make sure and it looks like you guys fixed it!
Thanks for the great work!

@yoni.shurygin great!!

@anthso @JDBreeze1 can you confirm as well?

I’ll know better after tomorrow - but it does seem better so far.

Great! Keep us posted!
