    I've got an AW3 arriving this week. I've been holding off on installing iOS 11 on my iPhone 7 because of issues posted in the iOS 11 forum. iOS 10.3.3 is running great: stellar battery life, no stuttering animations, Bluetooth stays connected, etc. But it looks like I may have to take the plunge earlier than I'd like just to set up the watch. Are there any work-arounds?

    Don't think so. WatchOS 4 is for Series 3, watchOS 3 didn't support them.

    To take advantage of WatchOS 4, it requires iOS 11. They both have to be in tandem with each other.
