    4.1 developer beta is out today, and has new features. I worry battery life may take a hit with it. My AW 3 battery has been amazing, so far. 91% and off charger for 8 hours.

    Yup. I meant regular 4.1 release. I had dev 4.0 on my AW series 0, but still up in air about beta on new AW 3.

    If you mean final public release, it's highly likely it'll be out by the time iPhone X hits the shelf, so November 3rd at the latest. Probably a few days before. iPhone X looks like it'll be running iOS 11.1 so it makes sense that watchOS will ship alongside it.

    That does make sense. Thanks. I think I’ll sit out the beta for now.

    I do enjoy beta running, but with the watch I feel its a bad idea for us regular folk, as you can't just restore fresh once public build lands. I had issues with upgrading from beta iOS 11 to gm, so I restored fresh without a backup and its much better. You can't do that with the watch without sending it to apple for a week or 2.

    If they stick to how they usually do betas vs official release then I would say next Monday, which would be October 2nd, right before the Apple Watch Series 3 Nike+ drops on the 5th.
