    Huh. Turns out you're right. Somebody should look into that. I sort of assumed that even if it had the capability it wouldn't be accurate enough.

    My apologies. They sure look at first blush like not Watch features.

    I do run with my phone yes.

    I only have a Series 0 Apple Watch (SS), so no GPS in the watch. So I take my phone with me.

    Well it’s hard to compare since most of us will only have one watch but truth to be told, I can’t complain. It’s not a rocket but since watchOS 3 it has been, let’s say, acceptable.

    I'd hold off for a couple more betas, some timers never vibrate and many resprings

    I did three runs, two without my iPhone and no VO2 results. The third time I ran with my iPhone and my VO2 showed up.

    All my runs were 30 minutes and all had consistent heart rate.

    FYI - I did not (Series 2) and have a result.

    My VO2 result showed up on my first outdoor WatchOS4 run - but I also had a history of outdoor running.

    Another interesting experiment - I ran outdoor intervals today for more than 20 minutes and did not get a V02 measurement.

    I’m wondering if your heart rate has to be within a range for 20 minutes? Say between 160 and 164 or close to your max heart rate? The one that did register my avg heart rate was 174bpm.

    I'd imagine 'now playing in remote app' is the Apple TV remote app on the watch which will show what you're watching/listening to and give you playback controls for it.
    'Scribble input' would be the scribble feature for messages on the watch, in the remote app- possibly giving you the option to search and input text. That's what I imagine they would be anyway haha.

    Haven't had any problems with this beta on my series 0. The last few 3.2.2 betas and strangely, the 3.2.2 proper made my watch have all sorts of issues to the point where I needed to re-pair the watch.

    Will auto pause work for outdoor cycling or is it still only for outdoor runs?

    I tried to see if a 25 minute walk would trigger a data point - and while my heart rate crept up over 120 walking up a hill, it hovered around 100 - (17 minute mile pace) and I didn't get a VO2Max score.

    So far for me - just one point on a steady run. Maybe I'll pace at or under 15 minutes and see if that works.

    For some reason i am unable to get my airpods to connect to the Apple Watch says all the time they are not in range when they are in range which sounds a bit odd

    I might reset the watch and see if that works or either wait for the next beta and hope it gets released soon

    Still no auto-pause. So I use Strava app instead. It works perfectly here. Workouts from Strava are also imported to Workouts app with basic data but route map is missing.

    Shame it doesn't auto detect the activity, that would be awesome (like Fitbit's SmartTrack).

    Another new thing.

    Previously when two or more notifications came in at the same time for the same app they were consolidated as one notification that just told how many notifications there are for this app and you had to go to the notification center to view them. For different apps they were shown one after another after you handled one.

    Now with watchOS4 they are consolidated as well but then are shown right underneath. For the same app they now show the app icon and a badge with the number of notifications and for different apps they show a neutral icon as well with the badge.

    I couldn't screenshot this behaviour yet as it is way too fast, but it's a really nice and welcome change.

    I have solved the problem all together now every morning i have to reboot the watch and then reconnect it seems to do the trick and re pairs straight away with no problems at all.

    I very rarely switch off my Apple Watch at all really because i always keep it on the dock Charging over night so in the morning when i need it always ready to go and working for me.

    The reason why i am using the Apple Watch to have music on so that i walk in too town and listen to my music instead of taken my phone with me because i don't really need my phone for 30 mins its just a waste of time taken it because half the time i don't get any signal anyway so there is no need to take either really.
