Maybe I am missing something but my watch does not connect to wifi when I am not in range of my phone and remembered wifi networks are available., It goes straight to cellular network. Anybody know a fix? I unpaired the watch, forgot networks, etc.. nothing works..

Interesting! This sounds like some sort of security that your work may have set up to prevent unknown devices from connecting to the network. I would strongly recommend you reach out to your IT department to see if they can grant you access to the work Wi-Fi

Hey, @trizzle29!

That's odd this is happening. Are you on the latest software for your watch? One thing I just found out while researching your issue is that the watch can only connect to specific types of WiFi networks. Check this out: About Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular on your Apple Watch - Apple Support. Once you try the steps on that page, please let me know if it's good to go!

Just checking in here to see how things are going. Were you able to get your watch to connect to Wi-Fi yet?

It connects to my home network but not work.
