Apple Watch running 1.01
iOS 8.4 Beta Public

When I paired my watch at that time, I was running iOS 8.3.
3 weeks ago, I updated to iOS 8.4 Beta 3 (or 2).

Recently, I noticed that the apps on the watch were very lagging. So I decided to unpair this morning and tried to fresh it up.

When I was pairing, the phone could detect the watch. However, the phone was frozen at the page where it asked you to Restore. I tried to turn off the watch and the phone and blah blah blah...

Anyone experienced this? I know that I can go back to 8.3 but I don't want to risk it.

So I will visit Genius Bar next week.

This is a BIG disappointment.
