We have had some users report that the Swim.com Apple Watch app is crashing.
To fix this issue, please uninstall Swim.com from your phone (which will also uninstall it from your watch).
Here are instructions on how to delete an iOS app: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207618
After uninstalling the Swim.com app, please update your iOS and watchOS software if possible. After performing any updates to watchOS or iOS, or even if you didn't have to, restart both your watch and phone and then reinstall Swim.com from the App Store on to your iOS device.
