QR Code does not load when setting up watch

I purchased a Fossil Gen 4 watch and I have an iPhone 6s and while I was able to download Facer on both my phone and watch, when I try to make the QR code, the watch says my connection isn’t working even though my watch is connected to both WiFi and Bluetooth. Is there a way around this because I would love to use the app but it’s frustrating to deal with this.
