Going through all the steps to set up 1PW on AW- enabling AW and pass code, installing 1 PW, tagging items- I get nothing but the homescreen of ! PW on my watch. What I have tagged includes PW's formy NAS Servere, Apple ID, and for apps that can not be synchronized with the watch. Any help?

Sorry, not a lot of help as I set it up a long time ago and to be honest haven't looked at it for so long it certainly wasn't on my S5.

Anyway I checked just now and it has the details for a number of my bank / credit cards and the password for some websites available, so it does work. I just don't remember how I did it. I think just adding the app to the watch and tagging the items though.

Thank you for pursuing the issue. So I understand that it works on those items only, that you have installed on your watch and synchronize with your iPhone. This then might be the reason it doesn't work for me- it's not possible to make Pw available in AW in the way of secure notes?

Right you are, iot now works. New to 1PW, my learning curve wasn't steep enough, but fiddling around some more I finally succeeded.

Glad to hear you got it going. Sorry I wasn't able to offer any real advice, but hopefully at least knowing it does work helped you persevere with troubleshooting.

I like 1PW, and have used it for years, but I only use part of the feature set. The Watch integration is something I had completely forgotten about and I've never used it, but this reminded me about it.

I tend to copy and paste from 1PW on iPhone, iPad or Mac rather than look things up and type them in, though the integration of auto fill is improving all the time for website passwords, and that is even better.
