    My new Apple Watch 2 takes more than 1 min 30 seconds to boot up... Is this normal?

    Got my S2 on Christmas and mine takes approx the same amount of time. Guessing it's normal.

    Yup. It is quite annoying at first to have a "watch" booting up that long, but my Moto 360 is not exactly any better.

    The Watch is initializing. It's not abnormal.

    Why?

    How many times a day do you reboot?

    Huh? We are talking about the boot up time, not how many times the watch need to be rebooted.
    Why? You don't want Apple to optimize the Watch OS to boot faster?

    Did you miss the sarcasm of how many times a day (as in multiple reboots needed every day)?????

    You only need to reboot when it is 'acting up' or when you install an update. So you are probably looking at far less than once every 2 weeks on average (or only about 2 times a month). Since this is such a rare event it is not that big of a deal in the overall ownership experience.

    I'm a launch day owner and I bet I only average about 15 to 20 reboots a year.

    Yes, seems to take a minute-and-a-half on mine, too. I've had to reboot a few times as the complications were displaying old information/weren't updating. The reboot fixed it.

    So? Again, the discussion is about the actual boot time, not how often a user has to reboot the device.

    So just out of interest, how many times do you boot your watch a day?
