You’re right, I got the same result this morning - empty “next event” indicator.
Yesterday the “short text” for Next event was showing correctly for me, but today it just said “None”, even though I have events in my calendar for today.
I then tried changing the complication to something else, then back to next event, and now the Next event area is completely empty, just like Matteo showed in image. I’ve added new events, no change.
I’m changing my previous post, can fully confirm this bug also.
The watch really feels dysfunctional now, with non-refreshing AOD and half-empty indicators…
I can’t duplicate any of this so I can’t report it as a bug.
I responded to the next event on Redit But I used Calendar and not Outlook it may be an Outlook bug.
It appears to me that you now have to give permission to allow Watch Face to Receive Data from complications. (I think it is because calendar is a companion app) If it didn’t pop up when tap on the complication go to Settings → Apps → Permissions and find the watch face and see if it is allowed there.
AOD for Watchmaker works different and I think that is broke in the update. I can’t duplicate that at all with a WFS built. The only thing I can think of is that some non-conforming AoD’s have seconds and those no longer update. Ambient Mode does not support seconds.
I have 3 of Matteo’s and a couple other sellers and my watch face and all work and update AoD but only on the minute, as they should.
Watch face complication is showing None if there’s no upcoming events
It will ask to open Calendar app on phone. I use Samsung Calendar (not Google, not Outlook)
Make a new event. Watch face is still showing None, the complication tap zone is working and the event could be found in Calendar app on a watch.
Switch to another WF and back to reload WF. The complication is blank now, even its tap zone doesn’t work.
Now open Calendar app on phone. Delete the event. Watch face complication is showing None again and the tap zone is working again.
Noticed 2-3 seconds freezing Calendar app UI or Back button action after a new event was created. Maybe it’s necessary to use a separate thread to sync phone and watch Calendar apps.
All permissions allowed, stock Calendar app, in my case Google Calendar app but it uses same android calendar provider as any other calendar app. Please try steps above & pick calendar app as complications (green calendar icon).
A lot of users are currently reporting this issue.
This issue was caused by Firmware update. Watch Face Studio team has already reported it to the firmware development team and they are checking this issue.
Since it’s firmware related issue, so it will take time to resolve this issue. Hopefully, this issue will be fixed in the next firmware update. If we get any update about the next release, we will let you know.
Your patience and cooperation are highly appreciated.
Hello everyone, I also confirm these bugs. Every day, like Matteo, I receive more than 20 letters on the topic of AOD not working and event complications, I hope and I am sure that the Samsung development team will help us soon and fix it in an update.
I’ve also noticed from social media that users are already fully aware that these issues are caused by the latest update. I really want to decide this as soon as possible, here is the topic on XDA https://www.xda-developers.com/galaxy-watch-4-update-breaking-watch-faces/
It is all over social media, the update didn’t just affect Watch Face Studio created apps it got everything but the preinstalled watch faces on all devices. The Wear OS Powered by Samsung team is aware of it.
