    My fondness for Apple Watch is waning. For the first year plus it had its failings, but mostly did everything I could reasonably ask. As the operating system gained features, so did my Watch. I was very happy with it.

    Then came OS 4.2.2. Two complications, Pedometer++ and Carrot weather, stopped working a few days after installing the update. I replaced Carrot with Apple's own weather app, it doesn't even appear on the watch face. Notifications have stopped working. Apple's Breathe app no longer displays heart rate. A couple weeks later the Watch stopped opening my computer—the error message says I need to log the Watch into iCloud through my phone (I was then, and am now, logged into iCloud).

    Now, the Watch won't stay connected to iPhone.

    I've rebooted Watch and iPhone multiple times, both separately and together. I've added and removed complications, then added them again. I've been through Settings on both devices more than once, looking for the key that will make everything better. Nothing works.

    Features I once relied on are dropping like flies. Even Apple's own apps don't work. My Watch is a Series 1; what am I supposed to do, buy a Series 3 and hope that in a year-and-a-half it doesn't crash, too?

    Did you read the recent article here that cites the Pedometer++ developer?

    You might find it enlightening given your entirely justified criticisms.

    Have you tried unpairing and repairing? My series 1 went bonkers once and that fixed it.

    Thanks. After posting I spent an hour or so on unpair/repair. That seems to have resolved the complication issue, for now.

    On my way to find _'s article.
