Anyone willing to relate their experiences with 6.1 on a Series 1? Good? Bad? Slower yet? Sped up?

I am trying to upgrade my S2 but the progress bar is telling me 6 hours remaining while the Catalina 10.15.1 upgrade which is several times bigger is already done downloading - go figure :(

same here. Still can’t get it downloaded. After it was done downloading after 5+ hours last night, I was unable to install it, then it crashed and suddenly said „software update 5.3.3. available“.. wtf?!

Mine eventually finished, but it was very painfull to watch. It took over 2 hours all together while our family macs (5 in total) took less than 45 minutes (together) to update.

Can you comment about performance and battery life? Maybe at night or tomorrow so you can test it through the day.

For some reason battery life on my series 1 has dropped to just over a day. Standby 1 day, 2 hours. Dropped about eight hours! Usage time 3 hours, 54 minutes with 1% battery remaining.

When you updated, did your iPhone say it was done but the Apple watch, while on the charger, had you type in your passcode, display a pulsing circle that went just over half way around, then reset, before working?

My Series 4 had that when it updated, the pulsing circle and reboot that is.
