What determines if you can add a complication?

    I wear GNReSound Linx 2 9 hearing aids, which have an app that works on both iPhone and Watch. For the watch, I wanted to add the app in as a complication to the digital watch face (instead of the battery life or calendar or weather apps, but, it's not in the list of apps I can add.

    Is this something that the vendor must change on their end, or Apple must allow on their end?

    It's on the app developer to code the app to have an Apple Watch complication. The app developer must determine if they want the app to have a complication, and if so what they want the complication to look like/do. Apple does not do that. I'd contact the developer.

    Any app can have a complication as long as the developer codes one for the app. If they don't code one, the app won't have one and it won't appear in the list.
