    Has anyone successfully launched a native app? I have loaded 2 and they just sit and spin before crashing.

    Was this not the bug that caused the update to be delayed?

    I have the same issue. Just updated two apps that now have watchOS 2 support, and they don't launch anymore. First they were crashing and now they're just spinning endlessly. Examples are iTranslate and Rules. All other watchOS 1 apps continue to work...

    I tried Sleep++ and The Guardian. Nothing.

    How can you tell if they have been updated be native?

    Non-native apps show the name of the app when it shows the initial loading spinner. Native apps do not.

    Yes! I'm having the exact same issue with my watch. Dark Sky, E-Trade, City Mapper etc. all apps that were just updated with Watch OS 2 support with native apps all can't open. Holding off on a restore, as it's a pain and like you said it may not fix it. Wonder what's going on. I was jailbroken on 8.4 a few weeks ago...

    That's a very good tip about the name being right in the center for non-native apps and up in the top corner for newer/native ones.

    Sort of. Non native apps show the name under the spinner, native apps show the name in the upper left hand corner.

    Thats good to know. Parcel was loading as a non-native app, so I checked the Watch companion app, Parcel was not even installed on my Watch but the icon was there... no wonder it didn't load!

    It's asking me to enable location services. They're enabled on the phone, and that's all there is, right?

    Disabled and re-enable fixed it for me.

    Does the watch automatically install native apps? Or do we have to manually select it?

    Thanks. I found another conversation about the issue, and I'm trying that now.

    The developers have to update the apps to run natively. When you install their update, it should work. Unless you're me. Because not a single native app will open. I guess I'll try unpairing and repairing.

    Maybe we have to set up as new and don't restore a backup? I have a Space Black 38mm model if that makes any sort of difference.

    Yes it's a native app from what I understand. The app name is in the top left corner vs being in the middle like a 3rd party app normally does.

    Ok. Hmm anything special you might have done? Set up the watch as new? Ran a beta? Made a deal with the devil?

    I can not get DarSky to load on Watch as well.
    Says "can not determine your location"

    That's farther than any app I'm trying. I cannot get past the loading screen.
