Watchtower Password Strength - No Meter?

Watchtower says one of my family member's 1Password.com account password is weak, but Bitwardwen's strength meter says it is Good and University of Illinois at Chicago's meter says it is Very Strong.

I looked for a Watchtower password strength meter to test the password in question, but I could not find one - is this correct?

    Hello @VT1P! 👋

    Different services will use different algorithms to determine the strength of a password. When you save a password in 1Password you'll see the strength labeled in the password field itself:

    If Watchtower is saying that the password is weak then I recommend that your family member use 1Password to generate a safe and secure new password: Use the password generator to change and strengthen your passwords
