I just switched from iPhone 7 Plus to iPhone X. I have Apple Watch Series 3. Everything worked great until I switched to iPhone X. Now the Activity app on the phone (not the one on the watch) just gives a black screen with a spinner in the center and never does anything. Things I've tried/verified:
- I went to iCloud > Devices and verified that the old iPhone 7 Plus is no longer tied to my account.
- Before I shipped the iPhone 7 Plus back I erased all content and settings.
- I've tried resetting the watch and setting it up as a brand new watch with the iPhone X.
- Everything is turned on under Settings > Privacy > Motion and Fitness.
Running iOS 11.1.1 and watchOS 4.1. I'm stumped.
What else can I try to resolve this?
UPDATE: It appears the Health app on the iPhone X has the same spinning wheel that never goes away:
Another thing, not sure if it matters but want to give as much info as possible. This iPhone X was restored from my iCloud backup of a iPhone 7 Plus that was part of the beta program. It was at version 11.2.(something). But I could not put backups from that version on my new iPhone X. So I had to downgrade my iPhone 7 Plus back to 11.1, then do an iCloud backup, then I was able to activate/restore my new iPhone X from that.
