Troubleshooting Strava Not Showing on Apple Watch
If Strava is not showing on your Apple Watch, it may be due to a few factors. First, make sure that the app is enabled in Settings on your iPhone. Navigate to Privacy > Motion & Fitness and ensure that Strava is turned ON (the toggle should be highlighted green). Additionally, make sure that Location Services and Health are both enabled. These settings allow for data from the Apple Watch to sync with the Strava app. If these settings have been enabled and you are still having trouble connecting Strava to your Apple Watch, try restarting both devices. This can help clear any temporary glitches that may be preventing the connection.
