Apple Watch Users Report Weather Complication Issues in watchOS 10

Some Apple Watch users on watchOS 10 have reported experiencing issues with Weather complications failing to display data on the watch face, despite the Weather app itself presenting no such issues.

weather complications
Apple Watch users have taken to the MacRumors forums, Apple's Support Community, and other platforms to share their experiences. 9to5Mac has highlighted the problem, and some MacRumors staff have seen its occurrence on their own watches.

Affected complications appear blank where weather data should be showing, and yet tapping the complication reveals the expected information in the Weather app. The issue appears to be happening on various models whether they are on watchOS 10.0 or have been updated to the latest watchOS 10.0.1 update.

Until Apple issues an update to correct the problem, one temporary workaround that users have had the most success with is to open the Watch app on iPhone and toggle the 24-Hour Time switch in the Clock app settings, wait a few seconds, then toggle it back to its original position. The paired Watch should update, and the affected complications should display weather data again (until they don't again – your mileage may vary).

The 24 Hour time doesn't fix this thing and also resetting the Location settings...I hope Apple can resolve it quickly!

That's what many users don't understand. They think once a feature is working, it will keep working forever. Meanwhile, they want Feature X, Y and Z added.

Software is not that compartmentalized. It's very interwoven. Adding a new feature can break an old feature.

It's amazing how well Apple devices work given how complex they are.
That means that their software is bad. If the software is complex it's because you have bad architects, bad team leaders and bad tech leads.

And it's not like this is some hidden feature that no one uses. Surely someone at Apple also uses a watch and noticed the things ain't working.

They should concentrate on being a software house, and not a woke PC nest.

Apologies for thinking that a feature will continue to work....

I get where you're coming from as a software writer, but it doesn't inspire much confidence in me as a customer if you think it's amazing that things work because they're complex.

Surely this sort of thing is supposed to be ironed out in the months and months of beta testing, not public releases?

Been posting about this since watch 10 beta launced. Someone on reddit finally found a fix for me.
You have to do this
Settings > display & brightness > always on > complications data > turn all on.


For some reason watch os 10 turn display complications data off for me.

Working normal now.
