    1. Try rebooting the watch and the phone
    2. Make sure the watch shows Connected in the Android Wear phone app
    3. Select Resync apps in your watch's settings in the Android Wear Phone app
    4. Wait for a day or two. Some users have reported transfers taking this long.

    If it still does not transfer, feel free to contact me with your order number and I will send you the installer and instructions to manually install the app on your watch.
