I have a problem with my Apple Watch S2 where it does not install the Apple stock apps like News, Music, Stock. The installation of the 3rd party apps works just fine, but the stock apps get stuck after 3/4 installed - please see the picture for details. I rebooted both the iPhone and Apple Watch and nothing.

Has any one experienced this? I appreciate the help!

the classic whey to fix a system partition issue on the watch is to unpair/repair BUT you can try first changing the watch language and region to another and let it work and then change it back. This can if you are lucky this can force the system partition on the watch to repair the partition without needing the unpair/pair....good luck

Thank you for the advice. I performed that, but no luck. I guess I need to go through un-pair/pair process, but I might wait for the next Watch OS release to see if perhaps installing newer OS fixes the problem.
