For the past couple of weeks the weather temperature has stopped updating on my Gear 3 and nothing on my end changed. Does anyone know why?
I’m not sure, but Facer.io has been having issues with Facer Creator and the rest of the website going offline. I’ve noticed it also with the phone app not being able to update. I’ve even had it sign me out of both at times when it’s gone down. I’m not sure what is going on, but I hope that @Facer_Official is aware of the issue and working on getting it fixed. Oddly though, the Facer Community and Facer Help Pages have been fine.
The #ALT# and #ATM# have stopped functioning on ALL
the watchfaces I have created. They both return “0” for current
value. Samsung Galaxy Watch 46mm. iPhone XR.
This started last weekend. I updated a bunch of apps on my phone
last weekend also. Not sure if Facer was one of them.
I know it’s not the watch because the Samsung Altitude/Barometer app
that comes on the watch are showing values as Normal. Same with
a downloaded app Alt Barometer that I use on the watch, fine.
Deleted the Facer companion app from my Samsumg Galaxy watch 46mm and
then reinstalled(the download link is in your app list on the Galaxy watch app) via the Galaxy watch app on iPhone and they both(#ALT#,#ATM#) work again. I did NOT delete the Facer app on the Iphone though. Figured I could go nuclear if this didn’t work. It did.
Followed up to help someone who searches for the same problem.
I see this post is one year old but I’m facing this issue.
I assuming Facer did not fix this bug?
Not sure, but it’s happened to me a few times in the last year.
The solution I posted still works for me though when needed.
To be a bit more specific on where the reinstall link is:
After deleting the Facer app from the watch,
Go to your Galaxy app on your phone,
Click Manage Apps
Click the 3 dots, upper right
Click Download History
(Might ask you to sign into your Samsung account
if you got logged out)
Then click the Facer app and reinstall
Facer will be back on you watch and
Weather now working
Reinstalling the app on my watch worked, thanks!
But if the issue comes back every time I switch off my watch, that’s gonna be a big turn off for me to keep using @Facer_Official
Just turning watch off does not trigger the temperature etc failure
for me. Like I said, only happens a few times a year.
Probably a watch memory allocation issue.
Glad the fix worked out for you
What I’ve discovered is all you need to do is set your watch to a non-Facer watch face. Next turn off both the watch and the phone, then turn both on. When fully on and stabilized open the Facer app on the phone then switch to a Facer face on the watch and it should work just fine. At least that’s how I get it to work on my Samsung watches. Oddly enough I’ve never had that issue with my Fossil watch.
