Apple watch not syncing - Private Relay

Mt. Kenya

My apple watch was not syncing activities, tried all other suggestions of closing apps, turning off phone and watch.

Turns out it was Apple’s Private Relay setting that was blocking the connection to upload.

Turned it off, synced straight away.

Sharing in case others have the same problem…

Hi @Thetomevans 

Thanks so much for sharing that helpful tip! I didn't know much about Apple's private relay service in iCloud so I looked it up. For anyone else who wants to find out more about what this is, you can visit this link on Apple's website.

Thanks again for taking the time to share this.
