I haven't checked on the watches. But I'd expect that you should be able to downgrade / restore the watch to the currently supported production release, just like the iPhone.

You have to send the watch into Apple for it to be downgraded.

That's an interesting approach. And seems contrary to effective beta testing.

For example, if while beta testing a new watch OS version you stumbled on a new problem, my first trouble shooting step might be to revert to a prior OS to see if perhaps my software had that glitch before and was unnoticed.

I'd say requiring the watch to be sent to Apple for downgrades is a problematic and poorly implemented process.

Is there any way to trick the watch to think that I have iOS 10 installed?

I'm tempted @JackieInCo but I read this on iclarified

"The jailbreak is for 64-bit devices only and is not fully untethered. It requires that you rerun a jailbreak app on your device if it is rebooted.

I'm aware of that. I will only try this on my 6S for now. Once I see how it runs, I'll do the same on my 6S+. I'm not giving up my 9.0.2 JB yet on my 6+.

I like having multiple phones for a reason.

Cool.

Looking forward to any update :)
[doublepost=1469365263][/doublepost]This sounds ok.

"The new jailbreak doesn’t require a PC as it can be done right from your iOS device, thanks to the new “click-to-jailbreak app” made by team. Additionally, the jailbreak can be removed from your device at any time by simply rebooting it. To re-jailbreak, you’ll have to use the app again." from iPhoneHacks.

Also, just like the last major JB release, many tweaks will not work yet until they are updated for the latest OS. I have a few that don't work yet.

After every reboot? And we know the iPhone reboots on its own at night.
Wonder how stable and reliable that would be.
Not sure if it's worth letting go my stable true untethered jb for this.
I only ran this on my 6S. I'm going to hold off on my 6+ till we see what happens with this a bit latter. I have multiple phones so I can experiment with one like the 6S that I am not currently using daily.
