Paws Location adds an app and complication to your Apple Watch, with basic information of your current location. That is basically it.
“Why is this relevant?”, you ask. Well, if you need to quickly know the address of where you are, for instance when ordering transport. Or to be reminded, with the complication, where you are, if you travel a lot (which maybe has not been happening frequently during 2020 or 2021).

When the app launches, it shows the address or neighbourhood of the current location. It relies on the GPS of the Apple Watch or its companion iPhone, trying to identify the location you are in. Please, note that may not be completely accurate at all times, but should be reasonably reliable if the GPS signal is good.
At the bottom of the screen is a precision indicator, to let you know the level of accuracy in the positioning.
On supported Apple Watch models, a double tap on the main view enlarges the compass to a full screen view.
Geographic coordinates of the currently identified position is shown at the bottom of the screen.
The easiest way to use Paws Location is to also add it as a complication to your watchface. The complication show the last identified city and country. Beware that location is not continuously monitored, to save battery power, and therefore showing last known location. It should update infrequently anyway.
