    Now on Watch OS3, its changed to the dock.. What's the best way to pull your favorite contacts up now though? Maybe i'm missing something simple, but it seems a chore to try and thumble around to message someone..

    What complication are you using to replace that easy to use feature we had in the previous OS ?

    Best way is to dock the phone app. The phone app has a contact listing in it along with favs, recent and voicemail.

    That's the new way it works. You can either use hey Siri to bring up contact or create a new message or have the Messages app in your dock.

    yeah i tried that (phone app docked), but when i pull up my favorites it only gives me the option to 'Call' that favorite, rather than before i could text or call.

    I guess the only way is to dock messages and phone... Would have been nice to have that old feature as an app we could dock.. it was very useful.
