    I am about to get myself an Apple Watch. I am currently running the PB of IOS 9 on my iPhone 6. Are there any problems with the IOS 9 PB and watchOS 1 working together? Should I rather go back to IOS 8.4 on my phone?

    Advice in this regard will be much appreciated.

    It works. I have had to re-pair my watch several times since going to 9 PB but it seems to be fine now.

    Thanks. I have picked up elsewhere that the initial link with an Apple watch needs to be with IOS 8.4. If one subsequently upgrades the phone to IOS 9 Beta, all will still be well (with maybe a re-pair every now and again). However , if the first paring with a new watch is with IOS 9 PB then there may be more trouble. What was your experience?

    watchOS beta 5 is pretty damn stable FYI. I am using it as my daily driver.

    Not true, I just got an Apple Watch and paired it to my iPhone running iOS 9 Beta with no problem.

    I haven't noticed any issues, except some 3rd party Watch apps don't seem to work which I am assuming is related to the iOS 9 Beta. For example, the ESPN app on Watch just says "Sign in to the ESPN app on your iPhone" constantly, even though I already am signed in.

    Ive had issues with a lot of apps when running the ios9 beta...I would stick with 8.4 if I was you...

    Before Public Beta 3 of iOS9 I had to re pair the watch once a week, because the sync data was incorrect. But after public beta 3 arrived, nothing like that occurred again.
