How long do updates usually take to install?

Like the title says, I'm new to Apple watch and my S2 is taking a long time to install. Good wifi, plugged into the charger, etc. Taking a while and the status bars are only @ 5 o'clock on the dial. Just wondering, thanks.

Edit: It's been over 30 minutes then got another loading screen, this went quicker and after about 3-4 minutes it went to 9 0'clock then rebooted. All is fine now, but I'm just wondering if that's normal to take that long. I'd be surprised if I don't have a permanent Apple logo on my screen. Lol.

They can and have taken hours. I think the longest one I've experienced was about 3.
Wow, that's all can say. And I thought something was wrong after 30 minutes! Any issues with burn in from the Apple logo being on-screen that long?

I have never had it take less than a half hour on my series 2.

25 minutes on a series 3? For those considering upgrading, that is a BIG deal.
