Anyone else having issues with Waterlogged on the Apple Watch? The iPhone app works well but it crashes on the watch since the last update.

Yep...I can't even get it to open on the watch. Still get my reminders from my phone though, which is the reason I use it.

I was too. Looks like it updated today and beside sit being a little slow to open, seem to work fine. It's the best water app so far and I've tried several. I kept YourWater still on my phone to see how it updates

Mine worked once. Crashed every time I tried to open so I deleted it.

I just downloaded it (free version) tonight and will use it tomorrow. So far in playing around with it I haven't had any crashing issues at all. What's the deal with the notifications. I have no desire to give my email addy and have my location and friends etc shared through them even if anonomously. Like who cares. I just want to track my water consumption. Willing to try it out without upgrading for the moment. Saw that they removed some apparently horrible ads in the current update. Not sure what that was about but sounds like I'm hitting it at a better time to try out if that got removed.

No crashes for me on my watch. But I do have an issue where I have to log a glass 2 times before it gets registered by the app. I do not have waterlogged enabled for glances on my watch.
I have this issue, as well. I submitted a bug report to the company through their website, and they replied to me that they're aware there are issues with the Watch app and are working on it.

I have the free app on my iPhone and watch and wish I could get notifications without paying for the ability to see if I like the full version. A limited-time full feature trial period would be nice. The reason I wanted the app was more to remind me to drink every so often more than keep track of the water on anything more than a daily basis. And clearly after having the app and not drinking much anyway because I get busy and forget and the day has ended, notifications is something I feel I would definitely benefit from.

I briefly looked over their user conditions and I have no desire to have my "statistics" anonymous or otherwise blasted to any social media kind of thing. Don't care for having to provide an email address either. Just let me buy the app and update through the AppStore when a new version comes out. Not interested in sharing my personal information at all. So thinking this app will be coming off my phone and watch soon.

I do have the app loaded as a Glance on my watch and when I go out for a meal or get a coffee try to remember to sit down and log the amount when I get it. Otherwise I'm more likely to get distracted when I'm leaving and forget to log it. I don't care for how the Glances view currently works on the watch, as each time I try to touch the water bottle it registers a new level of liquid even if I don't touch the + area of the bottle. Sometimes I am just trying to swipe the Glance and instead it registers more water and then I have to then go to my phone app to correct the error. A force touch to be able to correct amounts on the watch would be nice. Also noticed that when I changed the theme from water bottle view to the glass view, it doesn't make that change on the watch Glance. The app does have some nice features, has a clean uncluttered look to it, but not sure it's for me.

Gonna ask an obvious question, do you have notifications setup on the watch. and then on the app o the phone, did you select when you want to be notified. I only ask as I have the free version and I get reminders on my watch nd my phone and no ads.

I may have added my details, but I did not log in with Facebook or any of that. I set up an account using my junk email account. I never receive any emails, etc.

There are other water apps that exist, but this one seems the best of the free ones.

You may want to look at Water Tracker 2

Hmm. I downloaded the ver 1.9.57.4 free edition. When I go to Reminders it gives me the option of adding 1 Reminder (I guess to try out but not really useful for a daily try) or of accessing the Interval Reminder (premium feature). When I click on the Interval Reminder, it wants me to Unlock the app and brings up my Apple address and prompts for my password. I am assuming this is to charge me for the paid version. When I cancel the screen it says Error. Cannot Connect to iTunes Store. so pretty sure it's to buy the full version.

Thanks for the suggestion on Water Tracker 2. I'll take a look at it. BTW I don't mind paying for an app as long as it's not requesting info from me in return so not necessarily looking for a free app.

You are absolutely correct. I downloaded it into my work phone and yes that feature is removed. I was a very early adopter so I have access. I like this app the best out of the ones I tried below, so I think it's worth the price of admission.

However, I've tried Daily Water Free, Waterbalance (3rd fave), Water Tracker 2 (2nd fave), Water Alert, Gulps, and Splashy. Good luck

Hey does anyone know if Waterlogged is supposed to connect to the Health App and log water consumed? If it doesn't, anyone know of an app that does successfully?
thxs.

Yes, but only if you download the pay version. It's the new feature
