    I regularly work out with my AW and find that the music app is very laggy. Changing songs has a lag of about 1 second between tap and the next song, sometimes its longer.

    I had always assumed it was an issue with OS1, but it is just as bad in OS2. I have searched this forum and cant see others reporting the same issue - is this just something I am experiencing?

    I have one playlist with about 200 songs, and always have the exercise app running at the same time.

    Any insight would be appreciated!

    Mine does it too. Idk what Apple has been up to lately, but I'm kinda getting irritated with the software quality recently. The animations in iOS 9 on an iPhone 6 are as choppy as android.

    This actually seems to be getting worse, or its a little worse in OS2. Its especially bad when I am also logging an exercise through the app (including heart rate). I sometimes use my old ipod nano (7G) when working out, and it is lightning quick compared to the watch.

    Has anyone found a way around this (e.g. smaller playlists?).
