Check to see if Do Not Disturb is enabled

If you have Do Not Disturb enabled on apple watch it will prevent you from being able to swipe up to see your Glances. To check if this is the case, swipe up from the bottom of the watch face to bring up Glances, and then look in the upper left corner. If you see a crescent moon symbol next to the time, that means Do Not Disturb is turned on.

To turn off Do Not Disturb, open the Settings app on apple watch and then tap on Do Not Disturb. Or, you can simply swipe up from the bottom of your watch face to access Control Center, and then tap on the half-moon icon to toggle Do Not Disturb off.

Check to see if you have any unread notifications

If you see a red dot next to any app icon, that means there is an unread notification. Tap on the app icon to view the notification. Once you’ve read the notification, you’ll be able to swipe up from the bottom of the watch face again.
