Apple Watch Won't Pair

on
Apple Watch Series 3 and several different iPhones: I pair the watch and the iPhone and the iPhone says you need to update the watch to complete pairing. When I hit "update watch" it eventually says "unable to update, not connected to the internet". I am connected to the internet through a 300mbs wifi connection. I've tried a few different networks and iPhones. What am I missing?

Are devices updates to current IOS levels?  WiFi extenders used?

Yes, I found the problem. The OS is so old the update software has a digital fit every time you try to fetch the update. I have an appointment with Apple to force the update. Thank you all!
