My question for this is…
Why did they make this change?! This is a step backwards! People want to see the weather conditions, not just the temperature! If people wanted to see the city’s name, they would use the LONG_TEXT format.
Is there a way that they can fix this the SHORT_TEXT format to the previous format (Icon + TEXT) without waiting another year, for the next WearOS firmware?! I’d say that this is quite urgent, because not everyone wants to download another weather app.
I wish I could test this, as a lot of my watchfaces use the Icon + Title + Text format. However, I don’t have the WearOS 4 firmware yet. I asked a person to provide the WOS4 pic, so that I could make the post.
Hi @Matteo_Dini ,
So, it looks like now it needs Icon + Title.
Can you try Text + Icon + Title & hide Text? Then just set Title to the same font / position as it was with Text.
It should work but that complication slot will be only usable with the Samsung Weather.
Looks like Samsung Weather latest updated moved temperature to title and added City name as text. Which is… unfortunate? Title should be definitely showing City name, not Temperature. Also, Short Text should not be showing longer texts like City name at all…
City name or longer text in general should be only used in LONG_TEXT complication. I wish I worked for the Samsung development team. This thing can be fixed in minutes
I think the usage patterns of text and title have changed in wear os 4.0. The complications I fixed for WO 4.0 are reversed in lower versions this time… Will this issue be fixed? Or do we have to wait for w4 and w5 to get wear os 4.0 update?
