Step count not updaing in always on display

Hi, I’m trying to display the number of steps on my watch face (using tag expression [SC]). But its not updating when the watch is in aod mode. It will only update if i press the power button and the watch face shows the regular face.

Is there some limitation or is this a bug?

It’s limitation of Samsung. Same it is on GW3 - Tizen

I think it’s by design, AOD is really a screen saver so only the date/time update.

As the others have said, Ambient Mode or AOD only updates once a minute and it may not query Step Counts at all. It is bad practice to do anything that requires extra battery use in AOD mode.
