    So I just received my watch (w1) a couple hours ago and after setting it up I checked for an update. As I expected there was an update to wOS 3.1. It's taken about 90 minutes to update and it's finally rebooting. The question I have is, does it always take this long to install an update?

    Also I can't seem to figure out how to get to the installed apps. I only have 3-4 apps that I added via my iPhone but I can't figure out how to get to the apps screen :(o_O

    Thanks!!

    1. Yes
    2. iPhone> Watch app> scroll down to the app you want to install

    Thank you, I understand how to install the apps, I can't figure out how to get to the app screen on the watch.

    I thought I tried that but I'll give it another try once it finishes rebooting. Thanks!!

    Yes, pressing the Digital Crown will bring up the Home screen. You can then add your favorite (up to 10) apps to the App Dock accessed by pressing the Side Button.

    Or you can manage the Dock through the iPhone app. That's easy to do.

    Thank you!! That's perfect. I admit...I'm the type that usually just throws the user guide or installation manual out the window. And I'm kind of a nerd but surprisingly the Apple Watch is not very intuitive. Also bummed that my early 2013 rMBP isn't supported for logging in :(
