    Noticed recently in the last two or three betas, Bluetooth keeps disconnecting and then within seconds reconnecting to my watch. I don't know if this is an iOS issue or Watch issue, but leaning towards Watch issue since I never have dropped connections with my car radio. I'll notice it happen maybe once every 5 mins while actively using my phone. I'll see the Bluetooth icon dim (disconnect) then flicker and turn solid (reconnect). Anyone else having this continuous issue?

    I found this thread and thought I'd bump it as I am having similar problem...

    Whenever I am in my cars I notice that my iPhone will reconnect frequently and I will see a "reconnecting iPhone" notice on my car's navigation display. I have 2 similar vehicles and notice it in both. Also, my wife has same issue with her Apple Watch in both cars.

    I am guessing that every time there is some communication between the watch and iPhone, such as an incoming email or notification, that this causes the disconnect and reconnect.

    Any ideas on a fix? It is annoying and distracting to see the reconnection notification on the screen so often.
