    Hey guys
    This is my first post ever here, and I'm not the best at technology, so if I'm posting the wrong place, or my question is completely stupid, then I'm sorry.

    I can't find some of my apps in my Watch app on my iPhone, therefor i can't install them on my apple watch.. As an example I know Facebook Messenger (FM) has an app to Apple Watch, but it isn't in my app list? (See Screenshot). How do I get FM on my Apple Watch? :D

    Thank you! :)

    Are you sure the :apple:Watch app is available in your country?

    It works with 90% of my apps, but with a few it doesn't. I have a SS where you can see the apps it does work with, it's attached :)
    I live in Denmark btw.

    Thank you!

    Go to the App Store and lookup the app and see if it has 'Offeres Apple Watch App' on it.

    A couple of probably obvious questions and possibilities.

    Running latest iOS 9 and wOS 2.2
    Installed app and logged in on you iPhone
    Restarted both iDevices
    Repaired :apple:Watch
    Deleted app and reinstalled

    If running and older version of iOS and wOS 2.2 then it could be an app compatibility problem. Report back.
