    When I'm listening to Apple Music the Now Playing feature is ever-present on my watch. Sounds handy right? It can be. But I was petting my dog and he skipped to the next song. Then he paused the music. When I'm cycling, I want to see my fitness info, not Now Playing.

    Also, in my dock, I have Apple Music and Now Playing right next to each other, and sometimes I'm like "which should I choose?"

    I tried to find an option to "always show" the fitness app while working out, but couldn't figure it out. Any ideas?

    But otherwise love my series 3, and this is a very small problem, just a little annoying.

    In the Watch app under general > wake screen, you can disable auto launching of audio apps.

    Thanks, this was annoying me every time I left my car I had to push the crown to see the damn watch face.

    THANK YOU! I was wondering how to turn this off also. It would come up even when I'm in the car. Also, if I launched VLC on my phone, VLC's app was automatically opening also.

    Yep, that was the most annoying feature of the entire upgrade. Finally discovered how to shut it off.

    I think ill turn mine off too. I set "now playing" as the bottom complication for my Explorer theme. Very convenient when using AirPods to adjust volume and skip tracts etc.
