I have seen a lot of threads about issues with os2 but has anyone had a positive experience? The reason I am asking is because I will be getting my AW tomorrow. I am debating if I should wait to update it until it is more stable.

0 issues, but only because after a day and a half my watch still won't update. Its been on "About 1 hour remaining", then "About 46 minutes remaining"...for the past 4 hours. This is the most painful iOS update I've ever dealt with (going back to original iPhone).

I do have a question. First of all, i just got my Iwatch yesterday, updated to OS2 when i got home. Problem was that my watch was down to 12% battery and i needed to have 50% to continue. I plugged it in and went to sleep. I woke up during the night and saw that i was still at 1.1 even though it had completed. I then decided to restart my watch and that solved that issue, i now have 2.0!

So on to my next question. I asked this before but lost the thread it was on. I had a Fit Bit and now do not need it. Someone said there is a way to keep up with my friends, etc, without the actual Fit Bit. If someone could please answer me i would appreciate it! Thanks so much!

All seems well so far, I keep reading about battery issues but so far it seems on par for me.

After reading about everyone dealing with this I decided to wait until bedtime to start it, when I woke up it was done.

Enjoying it so far.

I've yet to encounter any problems people are getting (apps not launching, worse battery life).

I said no because the question was if I was enjoying it, not if I was having issues with it or whatever.

The reason I am not really enjoying it to the fullest is because I can't put complications on the photo watch face. I want my choice picture with the temp and events on it.

Other than that, so far so good and time will tell if native apps help a watch become more enjoyable.

I am somewhat underwhelmed. Nothing really earth shattering in the upgrade. I still find Maps and Mail slow to load.....but maybe the watch needs time to sort it?

No issues here, but it's been a pretty disappointing upgrade in terms of features. Don't expect native apps right away, as that will still depend on third party developers to update their apps. And if you don't like multi-colored complications and use the utility face, don't upgrade. Besides that, and minor things like nightstand mode, not much difference between OS2 and OS1.01 from a daily use perspective.

After the update my watch wouldn't ping my iphone, had to reset all network settings to get it to work again. It is now verrry slow to reboot if you turn it off and back on.

Installation went fine, no issues with running apps, battery life still very good. The new watch faces and different color selections are fun but the real value is what the third party apps will do with OS2, and that will take some time. A couple apps that I use a lot have already come out with native watch versions so I can easily say yes, I'm enjoying it.

Oh, and I do like the nightstand function.

No issues here after the update. Liking it so far. Some apps seem to load faster and Runtastic has access to the sensors.

Just remember that this forum does not represent the majority of users out there and that people don't usually go out of their way to create "everything is great" threads.

FWIW I upgraded both my wife's Apple Watch and mine with no issues.

Loving it. Battery seems better. Upgrade was speedy. Liking night stand. Love the photo watch face, along with the new city ones. Waiting for native apps.
