BMW Connected iOS App & Apple Watch

Anyone had problems getting the Apple Watch app working. It tells me to log in using the app on my phone but when i open the phone app there doesn't seem to be anywhere to log in?

OP, I had that issue yesterday after setting up my new Apple Watch Series 4. I force closed the app on my phone and watch and I think that did the trick.

Now I'm concerned about the functionality. As far as the remote controls on the watch, I'm only able to see:

Climate Control
-Activate

Doors
-Lock

On the Watch App Store, in the screenshots it shows where users can lock/unlock, flash lights, horn, etc. Basically all of the same remote controls that are in the iOS app.

Has anyone been able to do more than just lock or activate the ventilation on Apple Watch?

Force press on your watch on each tile to reveal more remote options.

Well that helped a little! On the second tile, force pressing reveals Horn and Lights. On the fourth tile, force pressing reveals Horn, Lights, and Lock (pictured below).

I had this problem today. It probably has to reset due to the recent apple watch os update. I just opened the app on my iphone and even though I was already logged in it took maybe 30 seconds for my watch to sync up. Not sure why it took so long. Just let it sit. I did hard press the face to see if there was any options, but there were none. But maybe it helped?

Anyone know how to switch between cars in the watch? I constantly have to go to the iphone app to switch cars!

Wish list: add the Connected app as a complication!

I like the watch app, but as stated above it takes a bit to sync up. It doesn't seem to sync automatically. So sometimes when you want to use it, it only opens to the last time synced. I just checked. I had not used the watch app in a while and it had the last date opened which was two weeks ago. Took about a minute to sync and now we are current. I have used the lock feature and where is my car feature on the watch. I have the newest watch OS and the 3rd version of the watch.
