Samsung Gear S3 Frontier watch face sunrise/sunset widget showing No Info

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier and Classic smartwatches both have a watch face called 'Frontier' included as standard. I have the S3 Classic watch and I liked the Frontier watch face, I selected it but then I noticed the sunrise/sunset dial said "No info" - as in the image below:



Issue
It says "No info" in the sunrise/sunset dial, bottom middle.

I pressed where it says "No info" and it told me to add a location on my smartphone. The screenshot below is from my smartphone at this point:


I added my location but it told me I had previously done that! I tried many times but no luck. It was still saying "No info" on my S3.


Solution
On the smartphone, open the Samsung Gear app:


Press Settings | Apps

On the Apps page press the Weather cog/gear icon (as shown above)


Press Use current location

Make sure it is set to On (as shown in the example above)

NOTE: Before setting it to On do read the message on the 'Use current location' screen (shown above). Make sure you understand what it will do, if you are worried about your location information being used by others then do not use this feature.

After setting 'Use current location' to On, check your Gear S3:


You can see in the images here that the sunrise and sunset is shown in the dial on the watch face.


I hope that was helpful :-)
