    So I have Earth and Moon on an infographic face with my S4 and I sometimes find them to be behind based on the time of day. Example: When I wake up, instead of showing the US in sunlight, it shows darkness. During the day time, before moon rise, the Moon complication is lit up. There are no settings for Background Refresh for these. Are they tied to another setting that I'm missing? Is anyone else experiencing this?

    How do you know it’s incorrect?! Did you actually check the sunrise and moon rise times in your zone?! Don’t forget, what you see with your naked eyes aren’t correct in terms of actually when the sun rises and when the moon rises.

    Let's say I wake up at 6:30 and then don't look at the complication until 10:00. I clearly know it's well past sun rise in my time zone at 10:00, on the infographic complication it's not. I can also check various other sources to confirm the time the sun rises/sets and moon rise/set if it's at a borderline time.

    I've confirmed it is not updating by moving the complication to something else, then changing it back. At this point, the complication actually moves and will display sun in my time zone. And same with Moon rise.

    My UV and weather comps don't change until I've opened and closed them. Don't know that they are being pushed with new info. Probably a bug.

    I've noticed the same with UV & AQI. Carrot Weather does seem to update which is good. I also noticed that Sky Guide just released an update today which allows for a complication on the Infographic faces so I've swapped out Moon in favor of that one.

    Earth and Moon complications seem to be more aesthetic, that is, they don't open up an app but I am still curious what is driving the data on them. Location is the only thing I can think of.

    Here's an example of what I'm referring to. The first shot is from roughly 11:45 AM, notice the Earth Complication on the right, it is in darkness. The second image is 11:53 roughly (got a phone call) and you will notice Earth is in light now. It's in light because I changed to another complication, then moved it back so it forced an update.

    There has been issues with the calendar complication not updating to show the right date, so the new face is definitely buggy at this point.

    Thanks for that bit of info, I haven't noticed calendar not reflecting the right date and I'm not using calendar info in my complication as you can see. I would love to but I've got a separate company phone and my watch is synched to my personal phone. I cannot sync the calendar as the company doesn't allow it.
