Just updated 3.1.1 > 3.1.3. It took about half an hour. Didn't brick my watch.
All went well here, also. The watch did insist on being plugged into the charger even though it was 100%. Download and install times were s l o w !
Ditto here. Slow. No changes noted yet
I updated my S1 and now it seems like every time I put my arm down the watch locks itself. Never did that before the update.
I was wondering when anyone at MR was going to mention 3.1.3. The wristwatch forum I'm on started posting about it ... let's see, about 18 hours ago.
Since there's a front page thread about it from yesterday, it didn't seem necessary.
With all of the bad press 3.1.1 received, I must admit I too was surprised by how quiet it was around here. I guess no news is good news!
Well, I updated yesterday evening, and something seems to be wrong with my activities app. today. It reported 10 stands by 10 A.M. It never happened this way before, and since I'm 86 years-old, it's should be obvious how unlikely it is. I'll restart the watch and see if this happens again tomorrow.
There was? I never come to the forums via MR's front page anyway.
Maybe I am missing something but I do not think I have looked at the front page in years.

Not surprised here as the update did nothing except fix some bugs. Supposed to also speed things up! LOL!

It was a sidebar story and was lost among the iOS and macOS update stories.
No problems here, but again a VERY slow process in updating.
I tend to wait a few days before Upgrading. Upgrading on day one has the servers loaded with everyone downloading. And I want to make sure I don't experience what happened to those with 3.1.1.
Painfully slow - downloading, verifying and installing took almost 40 minutes on my Series 2.
All good here. However, it did take quiet a while to download onto my iPhone, & quiet some time on my watch, like many others have said. Series 2 here & no obvious changes thus far. Time will tell I am sure.
Still to take my watch ⌚️ in for the repair te my back sensor.
I think all Apple Watch updates are SLOW, no matter S0, S1 or S2.
Your iPhone has to download the update, then patch it over to the watch, then install and so forth.
I too wish it was a little speedier, however it usually makes for a good "Before Bed" project that you set and forget.
Since the updates seem to take so long, I do the same thing. Start the update and let it do its thing overnight.
Yes they truly need to update the update process. I'm not sure why it's as slow as it is.
I remembered how slow it was from the past updates. So I started the update last night, and went straight to bed. All done when I woke up.
Took a while for mine. I updated my MBP at the same time, and once the AW restarted (or once I heard it *ding*), I updated my phone, too.
Updated my series 2 with no issues other than a lengthy download. Noticed that Mickey Mouse's voice didn't crackle when speaking the time aloud. Not sure if that was a coincidence though.
Part of the problem is you have To factor the massive number of users downloading the update from Apple's servers with in a 48 hour period of the intitial release. But either way, it's not fast process by any means. Over time, perhaps Apple can make this process
Downloading the actual update to the iPhone is pretty seamless and doesn't take long at all...it's patching the download over to the Apple Watch from the iPhone and other gear turning that's the lengthy part.
I understand why it takes the watch so long to update but the download to my phone took almost 25 minutes. This was done at like 3:30 in the morning so the servers could not have been that busy.
Most important is that is WORKED and all is well.
No idea whats up with my 1st gen Apple Watch, the software update check on my iPhone 7 always reports "watchOS 3.1.1, Your software is up to date." Even thought I can see that others already have 3.1.3 installed.
Any ideas? I have restarted both devices several times but am not getting the update flagged.
EDIT: Scrap that! I found the BETA profile on the watch, deleted it, restarted it and now it finds the update. Doh!
