Strong for Apple Watch takes a very long time to set up
In some cases, the Apple Watch app can take a long time to set up and you may be stuck on the "Setting up Strong for Apple Watch" screen for longer than expected.
Please check that you are in a location with both high quality wifi and cellular connection. The initial setup for Apple Watch can take longer, especially if you have a lot of workouts stored. However, it should not take longer than a minute.
If you continue to have issues, please try ALL of the following steps:
- Force Sync Strong for iPhone by performing a "pull down to refresh" gesture on the history screen (on iPhone) and then try pairing again.
- Restart Apple Watch
- Restart iPhone
- Please keep the watch screen 'active' during sync, and don't let the watch app screen turn off the entire time.
- Cancel and attempt to sync multiple times, waiting up to 10-15 seconds each time.
Usually a combination of the above steps will work. If you are still having trouble, please also check the General Troubleshooting Article for additional guidance.
