    The Radio app and Apple Music streaming are available on the non-LTE (Series 3 GPS) watches as well - updated the wiki post.

    I have not noticed any speed differences between 4.0 and 4.1 on my S0 watch.

    Does 4.1 fix the current stand hour not showing in the activity app if you haven’t gotten it yet? That little pulsating indicator almost never shows up for me on 4.0. It does if I force quit the app and relaunch it.

    Yes, I’m having the same problem it’s annoying. I’m glad I’m not alone.

    Just wondering if I can pair my watch which already installed with 4.1 beta after restoring my phone to iOS 11.0.1.

    My iPhone is on 11.0.1 and I installed 4.1 on my watch with no issues.

    The question was pairing it. Not having it already connected. A lot of times you cannot pair a newer watchOS version with an older iOS version.

    I’ll give it a go this afternoon, my S0 is my Dev watch so I’ll unpair and check.

    Nope. I can confirm that 4.1 beta does not fix this issue. A comment was also made about changing the Wheelchair setting in the Health app to None, rather than Not Set, but this did not fix it for me either. Hopefully the next beta

    Just to answer some questions about compatibility: I am on the 11.0 GM and running 4.1 Beta just fine.

    Beware, I could not get iOS 11.01 to pair with watchOS 4.1b1. I was able to update a watch from watchOS 4.0 to 4.1b1 and all was fine. But if I try to pair a new watch, the Watch app would hang on one of the early screens (I don't remember which) trying to talk to the watch. I tried this several times with the same results. I finally updated the phone to iOS 11.1b1 and the pairing succeeded.

    I want to reinforce the earlier comments on 4.1b1 performance. The speed up in launching apps is dramatically improved on both Series 0 and Series 1/2. On Series 0, most first-party apps now launch in 3-4 seconds, versus 5-6 seconds on 4.0. Series 0 4.1b1 is now about the same speed at launching apps as Series 2 running 4.0. I tested this by rebooting and waiting about 10 minutes for the system to settle down. Great job Apple engineers!

    I think it's an iOS issue not just a watchos one... I opened activity on my phone, then on my watch, current hour was pulsating... a few seconds later the activity app on the phone has caught up with the watch and POOF the current hour disappears from my watch. (4.0 public release)

    I'm seeing poorer battery life with 4.1b1. In the watch app, usage and standby times are identical.

    Just got notification for WatchOS 4.1 Developer Beta without being a beta developer and without having any beta profile installed. How can I disable this?

    Mines the same too.

    And my battery is down to 90% after 3 1/2 hours of little use. Hope beta 2 comes out today or tomorrow.

    Anyone know if the traffic and ETA estimate card had been added back to the Siri Watchface in beta 4.1?

    Same here, definitely worse with this beta. off the charger at 6am and i still had 100% at 12noon with OS4. Now at 90% within 4 hours. it appears that when not on wifi with this beta battery consumption is much worse.

    Ok thanks! Won’t be getting this beta. Don’t want to be dealing with bugs when the one thing I am waiting on is not there.

    I really hope this isn’t intentional. It can’t be, right? That indicator was invaluable.

    I hard-reset both the watch and iPhone this afternoon and the battery is much better now. Only lost 2% in 3 hours.

    Seems my series 3 randomly reboots running watchOS 4.1 beta 1. (Started today)

    I’ve removed all third party apps hoping that solves it till beta 2 comes out.

    Anyone else notice this?

    I have been having issues with then handoff between wifi and cellular connections. The cellular doesn't seem to register with Siri, radio, nor do I get my notifications like I did before the beta. Sad
