    Hi,

    I'm trying to create a complication which will show 'battery percentage' on my Wear watch and on tap it will launch an app (Torch). I got the initial battery text visible on Wear, but it's not updated while the battery percentage drops.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Can you please export your profile's description (not xml) so I can take a look? Long-click the profile in Tasker->export description Thanks in advance

    Hi, so it's actually all done in AutoWear - I've created a complication and then configured it to be included on my watch face.

    Ah yes, unfortunately those kinds of texts can't be updated automatically, sorry! I should try implementing that sometime :)

    Thanks for the reply! What would then be a way to create a complication (widget) with some dynamic text (such as battery percentage) with a custom action when tapped? The standard Wear complication for battery percentage does not do anything when tapped, hency my attempt to create a custom one ;)

    You could update it once in a while from Tasker :)

    I know it's an old topic, but I was also searching how to automatically update such complication texts.
    I have found a workaround that does not require Tasker : if your watch display is not always on, you can simply set "Command to Execute" to &SCREENON&.
    The text will be automatically updated every time the watch screen is on.
