⌚ Phone Battery Complication [FREE]
By - amoledwatchfaces
I can't believe this is even needed but thank you! This used to be a native feature but at some point the old complication just disappeared
a lot of people have asked for this functionality so I've created a working version of the app that will allow you to track your phone's battery through a watch face complication. (SHORT\_TEXT, RANGED\_VALUE)
# [PLAY STORE LINK](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.weartools.phonebattcomp)
*APP NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED & LAUNCHED ON BOTH PHONE & WEAR OS DEVICE, Watch needs to have active connection to mobile device. Works best with bluetooth connected phone to watch but also when watch and mobile phone both have internet connection*
* Complication automatically pulls phone battery info in 15 minute intervals
* Tap on complication - manually refresh phone battery info

Have a great day 🙂
Just want to say that this works great. I am not a dev but I was playing around Samsung Watch Face Studios and found your app was able to pull the data no problem.
Thank you so much.
This is fantastic, thank you so much!!! Was struggling with the same problem and downloaded your link and it immediately worked!!
How is this for watch battery life? I was able to get phone battery to work through tasker but it DRAINED my watch battery
This shouldn't cause much battery drain. & it's lot easier to set up 🙂
Fossil gen 5
To me (GW4) it just show 0%
Phone connected to watch via BT / wifi ? Both apps running?
Yes, both connected
Try opening both aps and also turn of battery optimization
It works fine on my GW4. Make sure the app on the Watch 4 and the phone is running. Also, you can set the app on the phone to the list of apps that should not be put to sleep (Settings --> Apps --> Special access (three dots top menu) --> Optimized battery usage \[Then make sure Phone Phone Battery Complication is not optimized\] ).
Removing the battery optimized setting did the trick, thanks!
Hay u/amoledwatchfaces I found that you need to do the following to make it work correctly on my Samsung S9+. Just letting you know since you are probably getting a lot of questions from users.
*Settings --> Apps --> Special access (three dots top menu) --> Optimized battery usage \[Then make sure Phone Phone Battery Complication is* ***not optimized***\*\].\*
Again thank you soooo much for the app. I am using your app to build my custom watch face on Swatch Face Studios for fun.
Idk if this is an issue, but this could be why some users found the battery % stop updating after few hours of use.
How do you keep it alive on the phone? Chinese phones like Huawei and Xiaomi are going to kill the phone component, even on Samsung, users will need to disable battery optimization, no?
Yep, disabling battery optimization can help. But I think manual measurement wakes up phone component just fine. 🙂
Working great, thanks!
Watch says it's incompatible (Huawei Watch 2)
It's setted to api 28+. I'll release 21+ version soon.
This is awesome! It works great. Anyone know if there are other apps that add custom complications?
Unfortunately I have a Ticwartch E which is API 27 and this app needs API 28+. Does anyone know of an alternative?
I'll try to increase min api. Check on Monday for an update 🙂
Update released ,🙂
Thanks, I see the comment on google play for 27+, but it still says its incompatible with my ticwatch E. Do you need to update some metainformation that it uses to decide compatibility?
Can you try play store cache reset / install via web browser ?
I've been trying the install via desktop web browser, which is what shows the watch as incompatible. On the the watch itself the google play store search doesn't show it at all.
I've tried different browsers, so I know there is no browser side cache involved.
I'm not sure what other cache to reset, unless clearing data on the phones google play app.
If the apk itself is made available I could try a sideload with adb.
How do i set it up? Both apps are just placeholder 😕
Just go to any watch face with some empty complication spot & set it to phone battery 🙂
You can monitor your phone battery from watch face complication. 🙂
Through the day it's a lot easier just turning wrist on to check battery rather than pulling phone from pocket. I Don't say it's essential feature but some users requested it so I made this. Also if your watch is on wifi or has lte, it doesn't need to be connected by BT
I don't know. Never had one 🙂
Need a Video showing how to install it on Galaxy Watch 4 or it's not for Samsung watches
Really want to see Phone Battery % on the Watch
Just install this on both devices (optionally disable battery optimization for app on phone) then just set complication on some watch face with short_text or ranged_value complication support 🙂
Please post Video showing how it Works
How bad is the Battery drain cos of this App tho ?
I'm not aware of any noticeable battery drain. Using this daily. I'll try recording that video 🙂
I would not mind if it drains 20% of my Watch battery,
Also please try to Add notifications on Watch to know when battery reaches certain % level
Yo, it ain't even close to Wednesday.
Yo, it's app, not a watch face, it's free and you only see link to that app.
Ah fair my b
It's fine 🤛🙂
