Re: GoPro 7 Black + Apple Watch!

Then I guess I’m returning my gopro 7 black that I bought for almost 600 bucks because I can’t use my Iwatch that I also bought just for this GoPro. Way to go GoPro.

Re: GoPro 7 Black + Apple Watch!

Hi @hardymesa1254,

 

Apologies for any inconvenience, but the GoPro App on Apple Watch is no longer supported. This doesn't mean that the app will never return, but it's been removed for the time being.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Ann
