    After update to 8.4.2 the new "Unity Lights" watch face is missing

    With watchOS 8.4.1 I was happily using the "Unity Lights" watch face on my AW7 Nike edition. However, after installing today's update to watchOS 8.4.2, the watch face is gone from the watch.

    Apple isn’t serious about Series 3 updates…

    What the heck? Two months ago I was frustrated by the fact that I couldn’t do anything to update my Series 3 Watch. I had to erease everything and then it finally updated. Since then it spent all this time on the charger. I didn’t restore the backup, didn’t set anything up, it was just erased...

    Apologies if this has a thread already, but is anyone else experiencing issues with their watch announcing calls after the WatchOS 7/7.01 update? I don't know if it's specific to the Series 4 Cellular model, as that is the one that I have. If you have experienced this, were you able to fix it...

    Mobility metrics

    I’m running iOS 14 GM on an iPhone 7 Plus and WatchOS 7 GM on a Series 4. I’m not getting any of the mobility metrics updated besides VO2 Máx and 6 minutes walk. Is there an age for the features to start working like EGC? Country? Any special setting for them to work? Thank you,

    Hi, I currently own a 38mm aluminium AW series 3 Wi-Fi + cellular (never used the cellular part) & I’m looking at upgrading this year.

    Lite WatchOS

    Is it just me or do a lot of you all think a lot of folks could benefit from a lite watchOS option? Not only for older devices but for those who just don’t need/want all the extras. I bought my watch with the intention of using all the time and now I use it to read text without pulling my phone...

    So I have an iPhone XS with Watch Series 3. I've updated to iOS 13 and WatchOS 6 respectively. Now, I usually pass on my old tech to my parents. My mother is using my iPhone 6 on iOS 12. Does this mean my Watch Series 3 can no longer connect to the iPhone 6? If so can I roll back the WatchOS...
