Hi Guys,

I have a new Watch Series 4 and an iPhone X all updated to the latest firmware.

I am using the infographic watch face with the calendar complication top centre

My issue is that the date does not update. Every day that I come to the watch, it shows yesterdays date but when I click into the calendar, it is on the correct date.

The only way that I can get the date correct, is to reboot the watch and then it is fine until the next day when it is a day out again.

I haven't tried repairing it yet, but that is my last resort.

Do. you guys have any other ideas.

Thanks in advance

Jason

I filed this as a bug with Apple.

They are aware of it because they closed my bug report as "a duplicate of 44704382" bug report.

Houston (duh)
On that note, isn't' it baffling how such an obvious bug, that is so widespread can make it through beta testing and not get caught and fixed??
Clearly, there will be bugs, but ones this this one not getting caught are mind boggling given the number of beta testers, etc.

I don't run betas, but it seems like a lot of beta users complain about bugs online rather than filing a bug report.

It beggars belief that this bug crept through, even the Alpha testing should have found that one out. Very irritating

I know it is only a first world problem, but it does take the shine off things

In all fairness, this is a brand new watch face released with the Series 4 watch. They didn't have a public beta program for this one. Take a breath and wait for an update.

It doesn't happen to me, so it's not as simple as it sounds.

That said, the number of even happy path bugs that are turning up in apple stuff doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Mine fixes it by going to a different watch face and back again...

Yep...that is my preferred solution as well...still feels like a workaround. The infographic faces leave a lot to be desired...how is it possible that iMessage is not an available complication? Hopefully, this gets an update soon.

It would also be nice if there was cellular complication (like on the center of the Explorer face) with signal strength when you are using LTE. It would fit nicely in one of the corners of the Infographic face.

Some people in another thread were saying that when their weather complication gets stuck or displays "–" instead of data, switching the watch face fixes it.

I wonder if this isn't part of a larger bug refreshing data in the complication....

That's nothing new. Been that way for me for as long as I can remember.

The watch is pretty buggy in general, especially for an Apple device.

The AQI complication won’t update for me either. I’m sure they’ll sort it but it’s annoying when you pay good money for these things and even the most basic functionality isn’t right.

Appears as though Watch OS5.0.1 has solved this issue.

It was fine today after the update.

Will see how it goes

Yep, my date/calendar complication updated without switching faces once I entered my passcode.
