Regarding BATTERY LIFE

Is WatchMaker worse battery life when compared to original Tic watch face?

WatchMaker itself doesn't affect battery life either way. How many pixels are lit and what sensors are in use are what affect battery life. If you have a watch face that shows no information (no pixels lit) your battery would last a long time but not give you any information. If you have every pixel lit and every sensor in use (showing constant heart rate, GPS location, steps, update weather every 30 minutes ...) then your battery will drain fast but you will have all information right there.

The advantage to WatchMaker is that you can choose what to show on bright and dim mode so you can create the perfect mix between battery life and information to suit your needs.

Re: PhucNguyen - I've had the same issues with WatchMaker since this summer. My understanding is phone battery status won't work as a function of iOS, and calendar might have the same issue, but I'm not sure why weather won't work.

Steps has been an issue on Android Wear devices as well in that I believe the WatchMaker developers haven't figured out how to have the watchface access the fitness app's recorded steps for the day; however, on Android Wear their watchface keeps its own count of steps (which is more or less accurate). On Mobvoi/Ticwatch2, it seems like steps ONLY count on a watchmaker face when they are registered during active (i.e., non-dimmed/non-ambient mode); this is most notable for when you are doing a "workout" (e.g., outdoor walk), which does a great job of registering steps. It seems like at the very least the WatchMaker developers should be able to rectify this problem the way they did on Android Wear (so that it counts steps in active or dimmed/ambient mode, even if their watchface cannot actually access the fitness app.

Hi, I use watchmaker premium app 4.1.5 on my Ticwatch2. The steps count doesn't work. It shows 0 steps. While the native watch face shows correct steps. Please help.

Watchmaker version: 4.1.5
TicWear version: 4.14.0-intl
iOS: 11.3.1

Thanks.

I can't get the weather to work on any of the Watchmaker watch faces.

I see "getting weather" when I tap the weather widget on the WatchMaker watch face, and then nothing. Weather info doesn't load. On one of the faces this results in an obvious blank space in the middle of the watch face. It's called DigiX v2 and I grabbed it from FaceRepo.

I've tried changing the weather settings on the iOS app on my iPhone and transferring the settings to the watch and that hasn't worked.

I use a Ticwatch E with an iPhone 8 Plus on iOS 11.3.1

I have also noticed as others have mentioned, that when switching to a WatchMaker watch face from a regular watch face in the middle of the day, the step count is initially zero. But if I keep the watch face it will begin counting steps. It will then of course not match the actual step count if you compare to Google Fit or Fitness by Mobvoi. If you keep the same WatchMaker watch face day after day, my guess it that it would match, though I haven't really tested this.

Anyway, how can I get the weather to work?
