going on an hour for me and not even halfway done... Is this the norm?
Mines 1hr in, status bar shows 25% in the iPhone App and it still is saying 3hrs remaining..
I updated mine around 10:30 AM PST today. Total of everything was about 1.75 hrs before it was ready to use. I was on my Home network. Everything seems to be working just fine.
It took approximately 2 hours to download for me, plus another 15-20min for the installation. This isn't the most convenient, but if you don't need to use your phone, I'd recommend leaving it alone while it downloads. My phone was downloading the update faster whenever I wasn't using it...
Yep thanks everyone. Just wanted to make sure. I'll start making dinner in the meantime!
Mine is stuck at ca 30% saying '21 minutes remaining' for three hours now... With everything connected as it should be. I guess I'll just hope for it to be done by morning.
I updated around 7pm GMT and it took 20 minutes to download. The actual updating took around 45 minutes although I didn't actually time it.
Took 2 hours mid-afternoon EDT. SLOOOOW download!
I may have lucked out, but it took me 45 to 55 minutes.
This update has been crap. 1 1/2 hours to download to the phone, then 1 hour to the watch , then an Unable to Verify Update message. Now it' s doing another 1 hour copy to the phone.
It's been downloading for 2.5 hours and still says another hour to go. Man this sucks oh well, it's only once I have to do it I guess
Kinda funny because this update is so small (file size wise)
Watch is currently updating now... Any hour now and it should be done
I posted about this in another thread but the update process for Apple Watch is stupidly slow and incompetent.
When I loaded Beta 1 onto my watch back in June it look around 3 hours and it hasn't gotten any faster. Even sitting inside an Apple store the last beta update took 2 hours.
Apple should make the watch connect to wifi directly and download instead of bluetoothing 500MB from the phone to watch. Most stupid process ever.
Ooh, mine was still showing 21 minutes/60% left but then suddenly vibrated and is now on the reboot screen with the Apple symbol and the circle around it slowly filling up! Has filled up to ca 50% in about ten minutes. Come on... I'm like a school boy at Christmas
So far about 5 hours total...
Zoiks! Mine took 2 hours start to finish!
Hopefully it speeds up for you soon!
Wow... Mine took less than 45 min from start to finish
Thanks, it did! Finally done, ahh... Seems to be working fine so far
For the update time, how much of that was spent "Verifying...". The download and preparing steps went pretty quickly. But, Verifying, dear god. About an hour now.
One more data point:
I set mine to download before I went to bed last night and it said that it would take two hours. Six hours later when I woke up, the iPhone was saying "verifying".
After going out and back in to the Software Update view, it suddenly changed back to saying 1.0.1 was the latest version and no software update was available. Going in and out a few times, it eventually said 2.0 was available and to Download and Install. I thought I'd have to download the entire thing again, but after trying to start it a few times (after entering the passcode it would just drop back to the Software Update screen like nothing had happened), it finally started and went straight to the Preparing step, then installed in about 15 minutes.
So it seems it had downloaded it overnight but failed to prepare and verify it, but kept the download on the iPhone to transfer to the Watch the next time I tried it. All good now and running smoothly!
Took me 2 hours.
Maybe 10-15 minutes for me.
Took about 45 minutes to download.
Tried installing and stuck on verifying for about 15 minutes now...WTF
20 minutes total
I had to wait like 5 hours for the download, but then the update process kicked in automatically. When the watch rebooted and showed the update circle gradually filling up, I didn't dare touch my phone... Not sure if that was the 'verifying' stage but that process took about 30 minutes until the update was complete and the watch running again.
I did this earlier this afternoon and it took me about 40 minutes from start to finish.
