    Why is it that every single update takes forrrrever?

    Am I doing something wrong but I have gotten to the point I just can't stand doing them across three watches. It does not ever happen over night and mostly when I take one off the charger and put it on for the day.

    I get the friendly pop up, hey there's an update. Oh sure I have an hour to waste sitting here waiting for you to download and then install a dam update. So I end up at some point sitting there doing them all at once. Why does this have to be so painful?

    My Series 2 was like that about 10 months ago, but lately they've been updating in relatively reasonable amount of time, probably 15 minutes max.

    I would try hard-resetting both your phone and watch, and make sure your phone is completely up to date as well

    And worst case scenarios, repairing or factory resetting.

    Crap is there a new update?

    My cellular still doesn't even work on mine because I need to re-pair it to sync it up, and I've basically just refused to take the time, and mess up all my crap.

    I just do them before I go to bed. Never seems like a big deal that way.

    Disable bt on phone in settings and ignore warning in watch app, then update is transferred by wifi in no time. Rest is the actual update on watch.

    Updating my Apple watches have always been painfully s l o w.

    Glad to hear that next update will be OTA so I can set it to start updating before I go to bed!
