I have my Apple Watch connected to my WiFi network, and the FING desktop Beta for Mac doesn't show the IP, just the MAC address. While the FING Beta IOS app shows the IP and MAC.

    @Sparks , one thing to keep in mind is that the Apple Watch is not always connected to Wifi.  It will only connect when its not in bluetooth range of your iPhone.  What you could be seeing is when the fing desktop scanned, the watch was not on wifi so it was not able to get an IP address for it.

    OK that makes sense. Thanks. I have devices that say in range, and they are 5 foot from the router. This is crazy.
