Thank you! Glad I'm not the only one who's encountering this. Took the weather app off my Apple Watch and sure enough the hollow arrow is now gone. Hope this will be fixed on the next release. I do like the weather app on my watch.I see the same thing on iPhone XS and I posted about it on this forum (see here). The culprit in my case is the weather app on my Apple Watch. If I change the setting of weather to never, or turn off Apple Watch, the location service icon disappeared. I'm not alone as other users also posted about this on Reddit.
Yeah, the weather app on the watch is useful for me as well. I'm not sure whether this is a iOS related bug or watchOS related bug. But hopefully it is resolved in the next update. I know iOS 13.1 is coming on September 24, not sure about when the next watchOS update will be released.Thank you! Glad I'm not the only one who's encountering this.

Been happening for me since upgrading to Pro Max on Friday. Happened on 13.1 beta 4 and now 13.1. Constantly pops up, goes away, then comes back when in the location services list is doesn’t show anything using location, or in system services.This is how it looks for me, no battery drain I can see but just annoying.
Watch face I am using does not have weather as one of the complications. Using the new California watch face as messages and date the only 2 complications. Still seeing the issue. Turned off my Apple Watch and still seeing arrow top left pop up constantly. Guess it’s a bug for now, unless someone finds a fix or another update comes out. Whatcha gunna do.Interesting. It seems to solve the constant on icon issue for me. I have a Watch Series 3. I use the modular watch face with weather in the middle. Here is what my home screen on iPhone looks like about 10 seconds after opening the weather app on watch and closing it.

Yes, there are no purple arrows near any apps or system services. I initially checked that in the settings app frequently. No Apple Watch either. I don’t think it’s affecting anything like battery, but it’s too early to tell with a new phone. Thanks all for the replies.Settings>Privacy>Location Services and look at all the solid purple arrow to see which apps and System Services have use location recently.
