Hello @hardymesa0820 and @nitanium

 

Since the update to its latest version, version 5.1, GoPro App is no longer supported by the Apple Watch. This is why it has been removed from the Apple Watch Store. On his last post, @demetrisa687 was asking if the issue was resolved by the latest GoPro app update. It has been verified with the team that the app is not supported by the watch anymore. At this time, there is no information if support will be back. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

I did experienced the same, had a Series 0 with a iPhone X, didn't noticed that the GoPro app isn't there anymore on the watch until i bought the series 4 today.

I've also updated my WatchOS to the 5.1.1 version and the Go Pro app disappeared from my Apple Watch.

I've already deleted and install again the Go Pro app on my Iphone X, disconnected and reconnected my Go Pro camera but It's not there anyway...

Same for me. It seems like the GoPro app doesn't handle any more the Apple Watch (see screenshot). I hope the next update will fix that.

Ej, You are deprecating a well working and useful feature without any notice. I don’t get this. Can you please add some explanation about the reason behind this?

Hi everyone did the new Gopro Update 5.1.1 (3 days ago) solve the problem for iPhone XS XS Max and XR. I am still facing these issue with iPhone 8.

No fix for the iPhone X with Apple Watch 4 (iOS 12.1.1 and Watch OS 5.1.2) along with the latest Gopro app 5.1.1.
Jay can you please get in touch with your developers on this defect. Thanks.

Jay, according to @demetrisa687 the gopro app apparently shows up on the watch in combination with the iPhone XS/XR, but not with the iPhone8 or X.
Can you please loop back with your developers on what the status is. Thanks!

Instead of launching new features and more connectivity, GoPro is getting a big step back on a so competitive market.
