    Apple Watch Series 4 Sleep Tracking

    After talking to a few members about sleep tracking apps, settings, and battery life, I decided to pay attention to my settings and battery life and keep track of it last night when sleep tracking. Usually I charge my watch in the morning after sleep tracking, but last night I charged it before...

    WatchOS 5.0.1 draining battery

    Updated watch to 5.0.1 before bed, put watch to charge (at 55%) and confirmed that it was charging. Woke up and battery was drained. Coincidence or something to do with 5.0.1?

    watchOS 5 Web Browser Not Working

    Hello, I have a 42mm Apple Watch Series 2 with watchOS 5.0 (GM) installed. I remember in the betas there was a mini Safari web browser that could load simple web pages. There was also an option on the Watch itself in Settings > General called "Website Data" which allowed you to clear all...

    Apple Watch Series 3 issues

    Good Afternoon everyone! Yesterday evening I finally got around to updating my new Apple Watch Series 3 to WatchOS 5.0. It offered some great new features (really made me wish to wait on getting an Apple Watch until the new came out), even for the last gen edition. So why not, right? Within my...

    Who else has had someone walkie talkie them at an inappropriate time (like during a work meeting)?

    I really love the feature, but am now realizing that I have to remember to turn off my availability before every meeting. Does silent mode alone silence the chirp and the person speaking?

    Missing apps on WatchOS 5

    Updated my wife's Apple Watch to WatchOS 5 today, and it's missing the walkie-talkie and podcast apps. She has a series 3, 38mm cellular version of the watch. Settings on both the phone app and the watch confirm OS 5. Anyone else see this? Any ideas how to remedy?

    WatchOS 5 Bugs? Or just a poor change?

    Last night, I updated my Series 3 to the latest 'n Greatest OS. So far it seems to sync and run fine. However, the "just Speak" feature does not work. I still need to say "hey Siri". And I did reset that feature on the iPhone first, also. Then, today, I asked Siri to tell me the battery power...

    Resolved How do I turn off always-on Siri in WatchOS 5

    How do I turn off always on Siri on Apple Watch WatchOS 5, or have it require the user to say "Hey Siri" I liked the ability to say Hey Siri to my watch when I wanted to do voice commands, but in WatchOS 5 the way Siri is activated doesn't listen to "Hey Siri" instead it is always listening. I...

    How does the Watch behave when cellular is never enabled to begin with?

    Title says it all... When cellular is never enabled on the Watch, does it behave the same as the GPS-only Watch? Is the icon for cell connection still present in Control Center?
