Just got my watch 4 this morning faced the same problem (Watch faces not downloading in app), followed your post, and it worked for me, the app name is Galaxy Watch4 Manager, you can find it in the App Permissions, under system settings.

Device in use: Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Watch: Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic
First of all make sure that everything is up to date, System software on phone and watch, google services.
Then go to System setting for the phone, then search and click App Permissions, then find and click Camera Permissions, in there you will find Galaxy Watch4 Manager, toggle to allow.
And you are pretty much done.
Open the Galaxy Wearable and start downloading the watch faces.
P.S: I'm not completely sure this will work with phones from other brands. As I see it, its a very lame bug, and I'm very disappointed with Samsung, I understand their need to create an ecosystem for their devices, but still they are failing at providing for the very basic need of a smartwatch user. I hope to see a proper solution soon but not holding my breath on it.

Any luck anyone? happening on the galaxy watch 5 pro as well. To be honest I suspect it's because I have a Pixel 6. It seems like the watch faces download "from" the samsung galaxy app store. so not having a samsung phone may be the limitation. That said I can't find the watch faces of interest on the watch either.
I've read elsewhere people on other phones were able to download those watch faces but as far as I can tell I can't download any watch face that isn't on the google play store.

Same problem here. I have an Oneplus 8 pro and cannot download any watchface from my phone to my Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
I changed the camera permission for 'Galaxy Watch5 Manager' on my phone, but still no succes.
Changing watchfaces on the phone works, even from the Google-Play-Store. But Samsung watchfaces that were never downloaded (e.g. 'Frontier' or 'Tomcat') are not listed and therefore not an option to chose from.
I tested with a Samung phone, and had no problems. So there must be something wrong with my phone-settings...
Any help would be great!!
