    That is just a work around instead of fixing the issue itself.

    Did/does/ this bug also impact 802.1x secured networks? I'm thinking about getting my wife an LTE watch, but her S0 cannot connect to her works WiFi as it is certificate based. I'm worried that she'll not be able to to take advantage of LTE because the watch is stuck trying to connect to the WiFi.

    It appears to not be for all series 3 models, only the LTE version of the series 3 watch... at least mine says "no updates" and is the regular (no-LTE) version.

    Looks like others beat me to it :p ... but good to know it's not just me

    How about an update to fix my broken night stand mode that never worked since the 4.0 update?

    Mine was stuck on verifying for ages. Had to reboot both the phone and watch and then it went though

    It doesn’t actually. I’m running WatchOS 4.1 beta with iOS 11.0.2

    Actually during the last keynote it was stated that the ability to stream apple music from the AW3 was coming next month. Since the keynote was in Sep, that "next" month is Oct.

    Not sure why no one else is experiencing this, but I can attest to the same thing. My watch consistently finished a ~14 hour day with 50-55% battery remaining. Immediately since watchOS 4, it has dropped below 10% every day except one ever since. Most days it dies before I’m ready to take it off.

    I tried unpairing it, and setting it up again last Friday. That seemed to help marginally for about a day, where it finished at 40%. Since then it’s been back to normal, dropping below 10% every day.

    It was a wash for me. My Series 0 didn't really change much from 3 to 4. I generally had battery life all day unless I did multiple workouts, which usually left me at needing to jump into power reserve on my late night walks shortly before bed.

    I will say this about the Series 3, the battery life is ridiculous by comparison. Not only is the thing way, way, way faster, but even on a two workout day, I generally end up at 60-65% battery before bed. (It's on for about 14 hours most days.)

    I haven't activated LTE yet. I feel like another update of watchOS is in order first. We'll see.

    Check Background App Refresh and turn off non-essential items ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yeah I've never experienced the issue either, despite walking past various shops, coffee shops that have free WIFI.

    I’m not seeing 4.0.1 WatchOS update while on 11.1 iOS public beta. Is that normal? Watch is S3 GPS+LTE.

    Okay? How does that change the fact that iOS 11.1 is required and it’s in beta testing. Rumors expect iOS 11.1 will ship with the X. So that’s this month.

    The only way to update to watchOS 4.1 is with a device on iOS 11.1. So not sure what’s going on there. I even tested this. My iPhone is on 11.0.2 and I have the watchOS profile on my watch. Shows it’s up to date on 4.0.

    If you simply remove that network as trusted and from your list, it will not longer default and try to connect automatically.

    Tap the (i) next to the wifi network name and choose Forget This Network.

    Since there is still no update to this article I would like to add that this update is not for GPS only models. This is only for the LTE version.

    That's not a software issue. Just go to the settings.

    Does this fix the issue when one cannot make a phone call on "verified" wifi like a home when the watch is off? Also, what about walking outside from wifi to LTE and dropping the call? Then I have to put it in airplane mode and back to be able to get an LTE signal.
    --- Post Merged, Oct 4, 2017 ---
    Why would a GPS only model need an update for an LTE issue?

    You should ask the author why the article sounds like all series 3 models get the update. Also, to be precise, it is a Wi-Fi issue.

    Article says it's for Series III only.

    Is this update in the 4.1 Beta? I’m having issues where I am without my phone and my Watch will not connect with cellular and will say that I need to add a cellular plan (which I have).
