Issues getting apps onto my Apple Watch

watchOS & Apple Watch Apps

So I have some apps here. My friend has the same watch as me and for her it worked. I downloaded three apps from the app store but no matter what I do I cannot get the apps to show in the app and not on the watch. I don't have full watch so there is space.

Hello Sasha. Following are the steps to install an app from your phone to your watch.

Open the Watch app on your phohne. Locate the Available Apps section. Locate the app you want to install on your watch. Located to the right of the app you will find the Install button. Double tap on this button and then wait for the watch and phone to communicate. This can take longer than you think it should. Note: Make sure the watch anhd phone are in close proximity. Otherwise, the install may not happen. It is not necessary for the watch and phone to be touching or anything but just close to you.

If the app has installed successfully, it will no longer show in the list of Available apps. If the installation did not happen, then it's time to do some basic troubleshooting. I would suggest restarting the phone and watch. Get them reconnected in the usual way and start the installation again.

I hope this helps to solve the issues.
