Question: Activity sharing displaying on iPhone but not Apple watch

In the Activity app for Apple Watch, I am able to share my activity with a friend and see the activity progress displayed on my iPhone, but it does not appear on my Apple Watch.

I have tried unpairing the watch and phone, logging out of iCloud and back in, resetting the phone and the watch, disabling iMessage and logging out of iCloud and then logging back into iCloud and turning iMessage back on. None of these have worked. It was working fine and all of a sudden stopped working and I wasn’t able to see my friend’s activity progress on my watch.

Apple Watch Series 2 and iPhone 6 with up to date OS

Hello slovering77,


Thanks for that info and choosing the Apple Support Communities. If I understand correctly, you are unable to see your friend's shared activity on your Apple Watch. To help with this situation, please follow all of the steps from this Apple resource on your situation:

Get help with Activity Sharing

Activity Sharing requires iOS 10 and watchOS 3 or later. If you paired more than one Apple Watch to your iPhone, the Sharing tab won't appear in Activity until you update all your watches to the latest version of watchOS.

If you see an error when you try to add a friend or send an invitation

Sign out of iCloud on your iPhone, then sign back in:

  1. Tap Settings > [your name]. On iOS 10.2 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud.
  2. Scroll down and tap Sign Out.
  3. Go back to Settings > Sign in to your [device], then enter your Apple ID and password. On iOS 10.2 or earlier, go back to Settings > iCloud, then enter your Apple ID and password.
  4. Tap Sign In.
  5. Try to add your friend or look for the invitation.

If you still can’t add a friend, make sure that they have an Apple Watch and that you haven’t added the maximum number of friends. You can add up to 40 friends.

If you don't get updates about your friend's activity

As long as your iPhone can connect to the Internet and you're signed in to iCloud, you can get updates about your friend's activity each day. If your iPhone can't connect for multiple days or you sign out of iCloud, you might see missing days.


Share your Activity with your Apple Watch - Apple Support


Cheers!
