    My series 2 on 3.2.2 appears to be working fine so far with my 7+ on pb3. I haven’t noticed anything with the watch that hasn’t worked yet.

    I'm using PB3 on my iPhone 6s and Watch OS 3.2.3 on my Apple Watch 1. Since PB1, I'm losing some notifications on Apple Watch, especially with Whatsapp messages.

    I had been running dev preview 4 with WatchOS 3 for a while. The only thing that didn’t work was the Music face complication. It wouldn’t show what was currently playing as it did in iOS 10, as Apple has switched to the “Now Playing” complication.

    I’ve upgraded my watch recently to WatchOS 4 beta 4 (I think it is, yeah?) and everything seems fairly smooth. The one gripe I have about the beta is the watch face sometimes takes a second to turn on when raising your wrist. Other than that it’s smooth sailing.

    All of that being said, you should be fine staying on WatchOS 3 should you continue to do so.

    Works fine on 7 Plus with DP4 and series 1 on 3.2.3. No noticeable issues so far, and I don’t use the music widget thing anyway ;)
