Cannot Download App on Apple Watch

Mt. Kenya

I am attempting to download the Strava app on my daughter's Apple watch.  I have been able to download on her iPhone, but when trying to download onto the watch I receive the following error message: ""com.strava.stravaride.watchapp" is not allowed to be installed on this Apple Watch due to device management restrictions."

I have reached out to Apple Support and they instructed me to contact the app developer for guidance. Any suggestions? 




That error message means there are device management restrictions blocking the download. Since Apple suggested contacting Strava, try reaching out to their support team for help. Also, restarting both the iPhone and Apple Watch might fix it.
