Hey all,

Since updating to iOS 13 and watchOS 6, Shortcuts no longer works on my Apple Watch anymore, giving me the above message whenever I try to run a shortcut. The same shortcut works just fine on the iPhone - just not on my Watch.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks, all.

Maybe you already found a solution by now..but I was looking for a solution myself and figured out that you need to re-make the shortcuts so they will work again
A pain in the neck till Apple comes out with a solution..

How does Shortcuts work with the watch? Through Siri only or is there another method. Don’t see the actual app on my watch. Thanks

Only Siri -from what I see-but it takes a lot of time to send the data to your iPhone Shortcuts
Checking with the app...
hmmm...
it will be a moment...

Finally you can enter what you need to
and
Just a sec...
Checking with the app...


I have a very basic Shortcut LOG WATER , 3 variables to choose from
nothing else, then the data from the iPhone is sent to the Health app
If I'm near the iPhone I use it there , so much faster

Probably it depends from the Shortcuts you are using:for some it went like you said
but others I had to make a new one from scratch and they are ultra simple ones
