    Is it just me, or is my Apple Watch Series 2 slower with watchOS 5?

    Thoughts? Any one else having this experience?

    My Series 1 feels about the same as before. I reset it before upgrading the OS.

    My series 2 feels about the same. If I had to pick one, I’d say it’s faster than on 4, but only very slightly.

    My take is the opposite, I feel it is definitely faster than OS 4!
    It is significant enough to be really noticeable. To me both iOS 12 and watchOS 5 are stable and offers a speed increase, more so on the watch than the phone.

    I feel my watch is a bit faster on OS 5. A bit faster on opening apps, changing complications/faces and when I open the Music app on my phone, I can see the Now Playing on my watch. Before on the OS 4, it sometimes take a while before the Now Playing will show the song currently playing.

    For sure, it's not slower.
    Maybe a bit faster than watch OS 4 ?
