    My apple watch 4 has been paired with my iPhone SE and the watch works OK.
    But I cannot install a whole bunch of Apps on the watch.
    And the watch doesn't show up as "Apple Watch 4" on my watch app.
    Also, the new faces - infograph and info modular - do not show up on the face gallary.

    Is anybody else experiencing this problem?

    I have notified Apple about my problem through Feedback app.

    From Apple website

    Before you begin
    To set up and use your new Apple Watch, you need an iPhone with the latest version of iOS.

    • Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) or later is compatible with iPhone 6 or later
    • Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) or earlier is compatible with iPhone 5s or later

    My S4 works perfectly with my SE, so whatever your issues are they have nothing to do with the model of your iPhone.

    Did you back up from a previous watch? I did, and the new faces were not dispayed until I edited the watch faces and added them. Also, I couldn’t install a few 3rd party apps initially until the app makers updated their apps.

    Lastly, try restarting your phone and watch.

    I tried restoring from back up when pairing, and I tried pairing as new watch also.
    I restarted both devices numerous times.
    The new faces still do not show up.
    I can't get any 3rd party apps to install.

    But your SE is fine.
    Therefore, something is wrong with my SE or my watch.
    What iOS versions do you have?

    iOS 12 on the SE, Watch 5.0.1 on the watch, although it worked perfectly with 5.0.
