Phone Battery on Watchfaces Not Operating

Good point. I’m looking at it from the user side, not the creator side, so I don’t know exactly what codes are being used on which faces. If only some sun rise/set codes have this issue with single-digit minutes though, that could explain the difference in behavior we see. Thanks for the info.

I have always on enabled and it still does not work (WearOD 2 Fossil Gen 6)

Really strangely, it failed for a day, then worked for nearly a day and has not worked since. Synking a new face will statically update the current battery level but it does not update automatically after. I first reported this by email Saturday or Sunday.

Hi I have the inmotion watch face and my phone battery and watch battery puts in different numbers than what it should be is there anyway to fix this

A lot of differences in watch and phone battery levels can just be the refresh rate Facer is using in the app. I know phone battery levels will vary up to 5% at times depending on how fast the phone battery itself changes compared to the Facer update rate. The watch battery is normally a lot closer but can vary some also. Facer just came out with version 6.0.1 that may have fixed some of these issues. You might check and see if your app is the latest version.

I have the 6.0.1 thanks this is an issue with the battery and phone battery on my watch it doesn’t sync the right numbers

6.0.1 has not fixed this issue for me, Fossil Gen 6, all up to date.
I did all the restarts after the update and also synced different faces and deleted all the ones I had had before, just in case.
I thought I’d wait a few days to observe.
It does seem to change occassionally but if so at a minimum interval of 15 hours.

hello I encountered the same problem with my galaxy watch 4 and my samsung s21 the battery charge level is not up to date and yet I have updated everything.

yet everything was working fine before the update of the watch

Hello, I come to bring a temporary solution to troubleshoot the time that facer solves the problem.
After several tests I reached a result the problem will come from the phone application and not from the watch because on the watch I am still in version 6.0.1_106392 on my watch (galaxy watch 4) but I downgraded the phone version I upgraded to version 5.1.72_106101 for the phone (galaxy S21) it is still available on galaxy store
And the my watch And my phone synchronizes the phone battery again everything works perfectly as long as facer does not update the version of the galaxy store this temporary and valid solution.

Thabnks. It is good to have a second confirmation that it is possible to downgrade the phgone app to the last version this feature was known to work in but I got Facer from the Google, Play store and there is no going back there other than uninstalling and then hunting the Galaxy store for a previous verssion.

I also would like to monitor the newest verstions so as to be able to provide feedback on the success of the fixes going forwards.

Bump. Battery not updating on watch. If i add a new face to the watch, the battery updates. but only one time.

Manually doing this every time is pointless as i have to pick up the phone to do so. When i do so i already know the battery status on the darn thing by looking at it…

both facer and wearable set to neversleep. permission in order too.

Yeah. The 6.01 update did not fix it. Waiting on 6.02.

If you are not a creator and just want your faces fixed, and have a Samsung phone, you can uninstall and install the latest 5.x version from the Galaxy Store (Play store does not offer earlier versions but apparently Gallaxy sotore does). It was 8,06.0 that broke stuff. Then just read here for updates on whether 6.0.2 will fix it.

As a creator I will stick to latest version to keep testing the updates.
