    Apple today released a new software update for the Apple Watch, upgrading watchOS 2 to version 2.0.1. The update comes one month after Apple first released watchOS 2 to the public with new features like Nightstand mode, native apps, new watch faces, and more.

    The 2.0.1 update can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone. watchOS 2.0.1 requires iOS 9.1 or iOS 9.0.2 to be installed on the iPhone.
    The watchOS 2.0.1 update includes a whole slew of bug fixes, as listed above, and it also includes support for the new emoji also made available in OS X with 10.11.1 El Capitan and iOS with iOS 9.1.

    UK here.... nothing available to download either.

    Maybe Apple are phasing things across the planet? Hopefully it won't go the way of Android though, where an update gets released and it takes a fortnight for a Stock Android Nexus to actually find it.

    No beta? I think I'll wait a week to see what Apple broke this time.

    How about a fix that will stop the watch from randomly disconnecting from the phone?

    Funny thing is,I just dropped off my Apple Watch at the Apple Store on Monday for "battery issues". I was loosing 5% every 15 minutes. I wonder if this would've fixed it?
    Now I'll get it back in 3-5 days. :(

    I want to update but I'm taking a chance with my Activity info. I have missed a perfect month two different months because I was updating or pairing again or something and it lost the day prior. Not saying that will happen here but with 10 days left in the month, I'm thinking about waiting until next month for this update.

    ....unless a few of you can verify your Activity data made it though the update without issue.

    Finally! The initial release was very buggy. Hopefully this speeds my Watch back up to at least the speed it was at on the first watch OS!

    Fix the muted conversation bug! I hate getting bombarded with texts from a conversation that is muted on my iphone! This bug has been a known issue since launch!
