    What do I do when apps won't load on the Apple watch? Just constant spinning wheel

    If unpaired, re-paired as a new device (not backup), installed the apps again and they still won't launch. Just a spinning wheel. The apps are up to date. Don't Apple Watch apps go through an Apple QA process? =/

    Instagram, CommBank and Westpac load fine

    You might try the solution suggested in this thread:

    Seems pretty similar to what you're describing.

    Thanks gwhizkids.

    cyrax83 it's so damn frustrating because I could never get apps to work. Hopefully what I did to make my watch finally work will work for you. There seems to be a few methods around, but mine is actually 2 methods merged together. Only 1 other told me that it worked for them, so please keep us posted
