I wrote 'do you know where is my watch?' But Duolingo accepts only 'do you know where my watch is'. Shouldn't the first one be accepted?

So, might anyone give case context for "ken-" and "weer"? Please and thanks Is it just the "to know" for "ken-"?

Do you mean "kennen" and "weten"? I think you could say that "weten" is to know something (to have knowledge) and "kennen" is to know about something (to be familiar with it) or somebody. The object of "weten" is the piece of knowledge, the object of "kennen" is the object or person you have knowledge about.

As a french person it's kinda funny to imagine someone with an 'horloge' on their wrist :)

The word "horloge" seems to be a little garbled. Is the correction pronunciation, "horolgya" - with an additional O at the end of the first syllable?

There's no extra o, that's just the TTS

Maybe you know Spanish, so I answer you it in this language: "weet" significa "sabes" mientras que "ken" significa "conoces".

That is very odd. Did you try to report it, using the "report a problem" button?
