    Just a bit paranoid because you hear all these rumours about planned obsolesce, and then all of a sudden apple releases an update with no details on what it does and at at time when a potential apple watch 2 is announced.

    Is it safe to update? I don't plan on upgrading to an Apple Watch 2 and really don't want a reason to, I like my watch just the way it is currently.

    I can't speak for everyone but mine is fine. Also exactly how does this 'tinfoil hat' planed obsolescence crackpot theory work when there is NO replacement and only the current model available?:eek:

    It has small bug fixes.

    Otherwise it's like 2.2. Apple doesn't do planned absolecene with software updates. Why would they do that? If you are dissatisfied, you'll probably would pick an Android, and that's bad for them.

    Apple isn't going to make the watch obsolete just like that. From what I've seen, that's not what they'd do.

    Seems to be running much smoother for me. Whatever bug fixes they added, it reduced a lot of lag on my watch.

    "Oaf" is an underused word these days.

    On both 2.2.1 Watches I can no longer have a Photo for the Photo watch face. The Photo Album face works fine, but the single Photo face does not bring up any options or even a Customize menu anymore, just a blank face with time on it, same on both my watches on 2.2.1. something broke in 2.2.1?

    My Apple watch is pretty much broken after this update, bluetooth keeps constantly disconnecting and the health data and the activity data hasn't synced with my iPhone for two days, I doubt message and call notification work outside my home wifi :(

    Unpair and repair?

    OP: No issues here on 2.2.1. I had issues with 2.2, but all seem to have been solved. Don't listen to the nonsense of planned obsolesce. Its just complete nonsense. As new software comes out and old hardware gets those software updates, its only natural for the old hardware to begin to slow down. Apple is not intentionally slowing down your older hardware.

    Already tried that, I'm really frustrated. It's kind of weird because my iPhone has a really recent backup of the Apple watch but it's unable to get simple data such as my activity/health data.

    I had this issue on 2.2, not 2.2.1. I restored my iPhone as new and only kept my health data, and restore my watch as new.

    I'm backing up my iPhone as we speak in order to restore it, I hope stuff will get fixed without having to restore it as new.

    If you are doing an iTunes backup, make sure its encrypted.

    I would unpair your watch. Then make the backup. Restore the device, restore the backup and then repair your watch from the backup you created before restoring your iPhone.

    I would be more worried about the planned obsolescence of the Apple Watch itself.

    Electronic devices don't require any type planning to become obsolete. Nor is any planning waisted on such a frivolous and inevitable cause. All planning money/energy/efforts are used to improve/enhance and prefect the next version which by its very nature serves to obsolete and legacy past products.
