Got a weird problem my favorites contacts aren’t displaying the names for my last 3 contacts, only showing their phone number on my Apple Watch 6.

When I go into the watch app and try to reset sync data, it does nothing. ?

Anyone know how to fix this issue?

tired restarting both phone and watch, still won’t let me reset sync data.

Strange their names are showing in contacts but not in favorites on the watch.?

Fix for anyone having missing names in their favorites contact list on Apple Watch, bit Annoying but works, remove the contacts that aren’t displaying the name on Apple Watch from your favorites list on your iPhone, then re add them to your favorites list on your phone.

Don’t want to be doing this every time apple, fix it already. ?

Rearranging the favorite list also fixes it

Another bug since last nights update . After rebooting my watch ( I always reboot after an update ) I get a notification saying I have overdue reminders which is not the case . Anyone else ?

I installed 7.2 today hoping it would fix this, and it is still not syncing. I’ve “forgot” and repaired the watch, tried the above re-adding of favorite contacts to no avail. Still have a couple contacts that pop up on the watch that act as if they did not exist in my contacts.
