Sunrise Sunset Not Working On Apple Watch? (watchOS 9 Fix!)

Sunrise Sunset not working on Apple Watch

Sunrise Sunset complication not working on Apple Watch after watchOS 9 update? Complication shows on Watch Face but the actual time for sunrise or sunset isn’t displayed? Problem persists in the 9.2 version?
Sunrise Sunset Not Working On Apple Watch?

This problem has been reported by Michael (watchOS 9.2):

“Complication for Sunrise/Set no longer displays the sunrise/set time and hours until. Only says Sunrise/Set.”

We can also replicate this unexpected behavior for both small and large complication options on various Watch Faces. Are you also facing this bug? Please share it in the comments!

Fact: This doesn’t seem to be a screen real estate issue because Sunrise or Sunset times aren’t displayed on the Modular Watch Face either which has enough space for the large complication!

We’ve found a similar complaint on Apple’s discussion forums!

How To Fix Sunrise/Sunset Complication Not Working
Apparently, the issue is caused by a missing Location Services permission. We’re not sure if the watchOS 9.2 update disabled it by default or if it’s a new addition, but here is what to do to fix it:

1. On the paired iPhone, open Settings and go for Privacy & Security.
2. Tap Location Services and enable them if they’re not already on.
3. Go for Apple Watch Faces.
4. Select While Using the App instead of When Shared or Never.
Fact: That’s it. Sunrise Sunset complication should work now! Thanks aldmondandcry for sharing this fix!

Important: Sunrise/Sunset stops working as soon as you turn Off Location Services on the paired iPhone, or from your wrist!
