Does anyone know if iOS 10 will work with Watch OS 2.2.1? I didn't want to install the public beta on my iPhone without checking here first.

Well it has to work with iOS 10 for now as there is no WatchOS 3 public beta yet..
I think they will have to work out a method to let users restore to WatchOS 2.2.1 if they want to release a Public Beta (Public Beta Profile for WatchOS 3 is available)..

Yes, all of us AppleSeed testers (we don't get wOS betas) have been using wOS 2.2 and iOS 10 since beta 1.

Just downloaded iOS 10 and everything's working fine so far. Noticed that they updated the AW app as well with the face gallery. Since I don't have Watch OS3 I can't download them. Now, I'm really looking forward to updating the AW software in the fall.

On iOS 10 beta 1, the watch would continue to work however you had no access to the watch app. Has that changed now?

There was no problem with accessing the :apple:Watch app in beta 1 or 2 and not a single post on the AppleSeed site. If you had this problem it was likely an isolated instance.

It was in a few threads. There was limited access to the watch app, it would say the phones software was out of date and needed to be updated. Also, it wouldn't allow you access to most app functions.

A couple of isolated incidents that may or may not have been related in some way to the :apple:Watch app and didn't preclude access doesn't equate to or support your definitive statement of "...you had no access to the watch app."
