    Mi Band 3 doesn't seem to update weather data - cannot pull it from the Mi Fit app, even though it's set up properly. The weather screen of the band says "Connect to app to update."

    This is on OOS 5.1.11.
    Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Solved - phone needed to be rebooted.

    Weird. Now, the next morning, it once again says "Connect to app to update."
    Had to reboot the phone again!
    Any ideas?

    Do you keep your location off?

    No, the phone is set to battery saving on. The app is set with a manual location for my city.

    For me, if I keep the location off, the app even stops syncing over bluetooth. I have to turn on the location. After that only even the steps sync.

    Well, everything is working on mine. Except that weather doesn't seem to want to sync w/o rebooting the phone.
    Does the weather sync on yours?

    It syncs only if the location is turned on. The new app update messed up everything.

    Of the location setting, when you said "On," did you mean "Battery saving ON" or "High accuracy ON" or either?

    Pie has only two states, on or off. The third option is no more. Its always high accuracy.

    I see.
    You mentioned that the latest Mi Fit app update broke some things. When was that approximately, and can it be the source of my weather problems?

    On a side note, how does Pie determine when it's ok to turn gps on or off?
