    Tried it for a day and still can't update.
    Tried reset too.
    So be it, it's not for this junk.

    I can get the update, it tries to install, but never completes installation. It varies from failing to validate, to just restarting some way through the update and being back on 4.3.1. I’ve restarted, uninstalled and reinstalled the beta profile, in-paired and re-paired. It just doesn’t install. I’m on a Series 2. Will be good to know if any Series 2 owners have had success.

    Series 1 here and same issue... it reboots and stays on 4.3 instead of updating.

    Installed Ok here (UK) On a S2 (Nike).

    After install watch is on W.OS.5 - is working, apart from the siri face which is blank (the time and complications are ok - but nothing siri!). Back to using modular for now. I've had one restart since install, when I was constantly trying to uninstall/reinstall the siri face to persuade it to work.

    So I also have a thread going about this, and the exact same issue.

    Now I’m really concerned, because there’s a Walkie Talkie option in the Watch app (with the standard placeholder icon for apps) but my watch says I’m still on 4.3.1? How could it have partially installed an os feature? One that’s not even meant to be there in beta 1?

    Looks like Apple pulled the profile on the developer page citing difficulties installing. A fix should be on the way soon for those of us having issues at least.

    Worked like a charm, no issues using the new watch profile.
