    basically that. I'm forced to update my phone, so i'll be getting the 8. Its going to be running ios 11. I have a SS gen 0 watch and i don't want to update that to os4 as i'm worried about battery drain and performance issues.

    So my question is this:

    1. Those who do have gen 0 watch, how is performance with os4?
    2. Am i able to keep os3 on the watch when i pair it with my new phone?

    Yes, my AW on OS 3 worked with iOS 11
    Partner also has a S0 on warchOS 3 with an iPhone 8+.

    I had problems when I upgraded my 7+ to iOS 11 without also upgrading the watch. I was getting odd behaviour like double notifications for new emails and texts - that's if the notifications ever came through at all.

    As soon as I upgraded the watch to OS 4 the problems went away.
