How did you make your wallet? IIRC that only happens if you create the wallet from imported addresses.

also I cant sign a transaction with a watching only wallet because theres no send button, please help
If your wallet is a watching only wallet, then your wallet does not contain any private keys. This means that you won't be able to send transactions or sign anything.

How did you create your wallet?

master public keys are a feature of deterministic wallets. a wallet with imported private keys is not a deterministic wallet.

a wallet with imported private keys is not a watch-only wallet. you should be able to sign messages with such a wallet.

however if it is truly a watch-only wallet with no private keys then you can't sign messages because you need the private key for that.

I need an help here, I just downloaded the electrum application the APK version in which I have equally generated my public master key and other details my question is in the process of importing into another wallet, will that not be a challenge of sending as the one op is asking, and is it compulsory I import only on electrum?

You should create your own thread but the answer to your question is that, yes, you should use the same wallet software on every device.
