Classification:Other Bug Reproducible:Always
The "Sysdiagnose Logs: Apple Watch" documentation misses an important step which is "Copy Watch Analytics" in Watch app.

Steps to Reproduce:
Use this documentation:

This will never copy the watchOS sysdiagnose archives. After many attempts, I accidentally found "Copy Watch Analytics" in Watch app (General - Copy Watch Analytic), started a sync, and copied the archives (see Radar 33342128).

Expected Results:
The "Copy Watch Analytics" should be mentioned as it is essential to generate/sync the archives.

Observed Results:
The "Copy Watch Analytics" is missing, causing lots of attempts without the archives being copied.





what does "Copy Watch Analytics" actually do?

I have found the "Copy Watch Analytics" option in the iPhone app but have no idea what it does. I am getting sysdiagnose from my watch by following the instructions in the quoted PDF without using this option. My problem is that the resulting Log Archive doesn't contain the os_log messages from my watch app, which makes it all a bit of a waste of time. I have raised a bug report.
