BMW Connected Apple Watch App not working?

Noticed yesterday that for both my wife and me the Apple Watch App no longer works. It appears on the Watch face for a couple seconds and closes when you try to access it. I've uninstalled from the Watch, uninstalled from the phone, etc and still doesn't work. Wondering if the last update broke it.

Anyone else?

No problems on either of my two Apple Watches.

Strange. Odd that it is not working for my wife, either.

Do you have more than one vehicle in Connected Drive?

See if you can find a common denominator between the BMW Connected app and iOS versions.

Not working for me either but I never use it so I don't know how long it hasn't been working.

Out of curiosity -- and before I test it on my Apple Watches -- what functionality is included on the Apple Watch app?

Thx.

Not much. It does allow you to unlock your vehicle remotely which is nice if you lost your phone and you have an Apple Watch cellular model. It also gives you a trip summary notifications.
