    Ever since the new update on Tuesday, my watch doesn't seem to show contact names for texts and calls.

    It will show it every once and a while but most of them just say the number.

    Open the Apple Watch app, go to General and then Reset and then tap the bottom one, Reset Sync Data.

    It'll wipe out and re-push calendar and contacts info from your phone. Give it about 5 minutes to work (if you open contacts you can see them show up in real time,

    I chatted with Apple support that basically told me they are aware of the issues facing 3.1.1 and they are working on an update to push out ASAP. That's all I got from them.
