    Have you already tried to force reboot your watch? Hold the crown and side button for about 5 seconds until the watch reboots.
    Also probably try rebooting the phone too.
    If that doesnt work have you tied to unpair the watch and then repair?

    Edit: I misread your original post, What dave006 said, below me, is correct.

    That is the normal behavior if you don't have any Bluetooth accessories connected to your Watch. Your Watch's connection to your iPhone is managed in the Control Center. Green bar in the upper left of the Screen.

    On the watch, pull up from the bottom of the screen, this brings up control center. At the top you should see a Green phone Icon. That means its connected to the phone. If you want to disconnect the watch from the phone, you'll have to do it inside the phone settings under Bluetooth.

    The phone is green, so i'm not understanding why it's not syncing the watch face that I want to have on there.
