Galaxy Watch default watch face not showing weather info

Hi all,

 

My new Galaxy Watch (42mm) isn't showing the weather info correctly on the default watch face. It doesn't show any info or temperature. When I click the weather icon on the default face it keeps saying I should set a location, even though I've done this (I have location tracking turned off). The weather app and widget work just fine and show the weather info for my town so I'd expect the weather thingy on the watch face to use the same data. But apparently it doesn't, or can't access it?

 

I found this thread: https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/Smartphones-Tablets-Wearables/Dashboard-Watchface-temperature-no...

But I'm not missing any app updates, I checked the Samsung Apps update menu and there's nothing there.

 

Any ideas how I might fix this?

Does it work if you turn on location? (FYI, location doesn't seem to use up much battery)

Thanks for your reply! I did some further testing and figured it out. Apparently you have to set your "current location" in the Weather app and have the location services of your phone turned on. Then it does show the weather info on the watch face. I figured it wouldn't need this since the Weather widget doesn't either, but it seems like the watch face thingy only uses the current location instead of preset locations.

 

So you were right. Location needs to be turned on, on the phone.
