Use ISO Calendar

Turn on the option to use ISO Calendar if your device settings is different and you want Paws Week to use a different standard. According to the ISO standard week number 1 is the first week of the year with at least four days. If your regional setting is already using the ISO standard this setting has no effect.

Old style widget

If you have not yet updated the operative system, you can still use the old widget type in the Today view.
