fenix 5x & note 8 & explore - activities not showing

Yesterday I installed garmin explore and synced my watch fine and have been using garmin connect for quite some time prior to this. Flags on the map are showing as are courses and whatnot. Activities are not showing however, so none of my recorded hikes are visible on the map.

Do you have any suggestions on how I can send them to the phone manually or get them to work? My phone doesn't have any power saving features enabled and like I say it syncs other stuff fine.
