    Where are my limited edition Apple Watch achievements at? I had almost all of them (Veterans Day, New Years Challenge, Valentine’s Day etc etc) and they are all gone ever since I updated to iOS12, I have only 3 of the perhaps 8 or so limited edition challenges that I had completed prior to updating to iOS12 , I know Apple said we would get them back (Somehow?) and that we shouldn’t worry about it But I haven’t seen the achievements restored as of today, I thought maybe iOS 12.1 would fix it somehow but nothing to be seen yet.

    Mine reappeared with WatchOS 5.1.

    But do not upgrade if you haven't. It is bricking some Series 4 watches.

    Some people who ran the beta said it took a little while to update. For me it was fairly quick.
    Maybe restart the watch?

    Hopefully they will show up on their own. I really didn't care about them that much until they were missing...

    Does the Perfect month goal usually show up on the 1st of the following Month or on the last day of the month? I just reached my move goal for today and haven’t received the perfect month achievement for October either, Will I get i get it tomorrow?

    It shows up on the last day of the month. I hit my move goal this morning and immediately received the badge.

    I didn’t have any as of yesterday, but now some have started to reappear.
    What’s worse is I couldn’t even see the Awards since I purchased my AW4. Thankfully WatchOS 5.1 and/or iOS 12.1 have restored what was lost to me. Hopefully the rest appear soon.

    Mine were missing but reappeared after updating the phone and the watch, so I can't say which did it. Obviously both did a restart after the update.

    I received a few recent badges on the Apple Watch Series 4 since updating to watchOS 5.1 and iOS 12.1, but none of them appear on the Apple Watch app on my iPhone XS. This includes the "perfect month" and the "7 activities in 7 days" ones. I rebooted both devices twice, but with no changes.

    Same boat for me as well. Hopefully they prepopulate later today or soon.

    So I woke up today Nov 1 in hopes of maybe getting the achievements today but not a single achievement was recovered, not only that, I didn’t get the Perfect month achievement for Ocotober, and the 7-Workout Week achievement which I finished about a month ago is now reset as if I never finished it?!?

    I restarted both the iPhone X and Apple Watch this morning as well to see if a restart would force anything but nothing helped

    The badges are not in the Apple Watch app. They are in the Activity app.

    My National Parks badge didn't show up for a week after. They've often been pretty flaky about showing up and disappearing.

    To clarify my earlier poition. I finished my perfect month and it showed me the badge on my watch and daily stats on the Activity app on the watch. The badge does not show on my Awards section of the app, and my Longest Move Streak hasn't updated since the 30st of October either.

    That’s so bizarre, why isn’t the awards page being updated

    I have the same issue with perfect month and in addition I have issues with the Longest Move Streak medal not updating, it shows the right number under but an older medal. It is probably a glitch in the latest update either on iOS or watchOS.

    Well it’s not a glitch in 5.1 or iOS 12.1 because I have been missing my Limited Edition achievements(Veterans day, National Park Day and all the others) ever since I updated to iOS 12 when it came out. Something is seriously screwed up. Must be some sort of an issue on Apple’s servers or something (Even though I thought Apple Watch achievements were stored locally on the device)

    Sorry, you're right. I meant to refer to the Activity app, not the Apple Watch app. The badges that were supposed to appear in the Activity app are not showing up. No badges since updating on October 30. It's really frustrating. The issue for me isn't just about the limited-time badges. It includes the regular badges you earn daily / weekly / monthly basis. The badges definitely appeared on the Apple Watch itself. The Activity app simply ignores it, however. It used to be that the app almost immediately records the badges after I earn them, before the watchOS 5.1 update.
