App doesn’t appear on Apple Watch 4

After installing the app on my iPhone XS Max and connecting to my Concept2 I couldn’t find the app on my Apple Watch. A reinstall didn’t fix the issue. Shame as I really wanted to use a single app rather than relying on two.
Update: after a row today the app appeared on my watch.

The only app that ticks the boxes

I wanted an app that used my Apple Watch but also allowed me to monitor my heart rate on my iPhone. Sounds straight forward enough but it’s the only app I’ve found that does that and I have looked far and wide. I don’t have a Concept rower so I was limited what accessories or connectivity I could use. I used to row with a heart chest strap but felt what’s the point of having an Apple Watch and not using the full functionality of it? So that about covers it. My watch is a 1st gen Apple Watch and it’s still supported.

Useful tool to have on Apple Watch

I use this to log my training outings using my Apple Watch, leaving my phone on dry land. Used to use another app on phone which drained the battery rapidly. This is better. Workout records can be accessed on phone back on land.
Plenty of info to keep track of training performance; time, stroke count, stroke rate, heart rate (max, min etc), distance, calories used, weather conditions. Nice little route map as well.
A useful addition could be a ‘distance per stroke’ metric to gauge sculling efficiency.
