    Do you have any beta profiles installed?

    Try rebooting?

    I went from 5.1 beta to 5.1 production to 5.1.1 production with no issues - I uninstalled my beta profile to get the prod 5.1...just before everyone said it was bricking their watches.

    Very unusual. As I said, I was on 5.1 and got a notification last night on the watch that 5.1.1 was available

    Thanks everyone. I deleted beta profiles and rebooted, and now running 5.1.1. Only issue now is that the new complications like Messages, Phone etc will not display on the watch when selecting for my Infographic face.

    They won't do, they're more placeholders until a later release... annoying for those with a Series 4 I know!

    I did all that as well, but no luck. I guess I'll just leave it be for now.
    I did the same, but no luck for now. Not a big deal. Just an annoyance.

    I take it you restarted both the phone and watch after deleting the profile?

    The watch app on my iPhone saw the update. I clicked through all the prompts, but it was stuck. After 2 hours of not even beginning to download, I searched online for a solution. Per this article: https://www.imore.com/how-download-watchos, I had to tap proceed on my watch (step 10) and it worked. I don’t recall having to do that before.

    Unpairing and repairing finally did the trick for me.
