    I just installed the final of watchOS 2, I don't see anything different from the golden master I had installed, both visually and performance wise, I don't see any changes.

    Plus, what's the big deal with this update to begin with? Time travel is not that's not of a feature and pretty much the only visual feature to be new compared to watch os 1,

    What's native apps are out there on the store?

    I did same upgrade from GM to OS2.
    I don't see any difference, which is probably a good thing.
    Dark sky complication is sorta cool. Whoop whoop

    That would be the obvious but what I also want to know is what is so different between watch is 1 & watch is 2 other than native apps and time travel?

    New faces too. Third party complications. Night stand mode.

    do you guys not understand the GM is basically the final build? That is true whether it is IOS, watch OS, or mac OSX.

    The difference between the GM and the watchos2 that was released today was the bug that delayed the launch of watchos2 last week. That's why those who had the GM version on the watch had a significantly shorter download time compared to those who didn't have the GM....

    I bet the only differences are 100% 'under the hood' bug fixes. GM's are rarely changed, especially in the interface. Changing any interface components would open a HUGE 'can of worms' and need to be beta tested.

    Batter tanking. Was good on GM. Horrible on the release today. 100% to 13% in under 5 hours.

    It's funny that you say that considering that, this year, both iOS and WatchOS had final releases that were newer builds than the GM.

    I know they are newer releases, but the functionality stays the same correct? I do not think there was anything missing from the IOS 9 GM that was in the official launch was there? Similarly, I do not think the OSX GM will be missing features from the final release.

    I just noticed that when you send an email there is a signature "Sent from my Apple Watch" attached. Anyone know how to remove this?

    It buried in the settings (on the phone) somewhere. I saw it the other day and removed it but I forget where it was.
