    I did the update this afternoon, it took well over an hour but what I do not have is the new Watch faces. I do not have the Siri face. I have looked in my phone and all my same faces are there at the top to scan through. The only change is the layout of the watch app on my phone and that is because of the phone update. It does appear I have all the other new things on the watch. I look forward to trying them at the gym tomorrow morning.

    I believe some of the watch faces might only be on the 3 series watches like the Explorer, that one might be just on the LTE models.
    Try this link to setup the Siri watch face:

    Thanks, I bet that is the answer. My watch is the first generation sports watch. But will try the link tomorrow when I have more time.

    You need to add the watch faces from the iPhone app. They didn’t automatically appear when I installed ios4 on my series 0 watch.

    Yeah I had to figure that out also. Yes you can do it through the app on the phone (I always forget to do this personally - and it's so much easier) OR you can do it through the Watch itself.

    Press the watch face down to get other faces..move over to "NEW" (+).
    Press that and scroll - or use the crown - to get the new faces.

    The default Kaleidoscope faces are a little too chaotic for me personally. I do like the new option in iOS11 of taking a photo and immediately have the option to add it to the watch, your own Kaleidoscope face with it. I have to mess around in Photoshop and see if I can create something interesting.

    --- Just a random observation, I wonder what the significance of "FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23" as the demo date on these watch faces. That was the date in 2016. IDK?

    I’m really enjoying the Toy Story ones, some of the animations are genuinely funny.

    Such bs that there is no third party watch face support, and now apple is using it as leverage to make you buy new watches.
