This page covers a few common issues known with watch apps. If this page doesn't answer your questions, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many people have reported that updating their iOS and watchOS did the trick. You might be using an outdated version. Please try updating first. Your watchOS version should be at least watchOS 7.
After updating, if it's not available to install by the iPhone's "Watch" app (it should be at the very bottom of the screen), try to restart both of your devices. Keep in mind that bluetooth has to be active to install the app on your Watch.

WristWeb works fine without the iPhone nearby. However, for setting up it needs to be installed on the iPhone first. If it doesn't appear on the iPhone you can "remind" the iPhone to install it by restarting both devices and let it sit for a minute. Make sure bluetooth is enabled on the iPhone.
Firstly, check if the Watch is connected to the iPhone: at the bottom of the Watch's screen you should see one to three dots. If those are moving/changing it means that the connection is live. If they are stuck, check if bluetooth is activated. Then, check if you have logged in correctly using the iPhone app. If the login button leads you to a preview of your home feed, it is working correctly. If that doesn't work, try to restart both of your devices. The last thing you can try is to uninstall and reinstall the app.
