    I have read that unpairing and repairing will fix this. I am doing that at the moment. Will update thread with results

    UPDATE - I can confirm this fix. Unpair from apple watch app on iPhone. When you repair, choose to restore from older backup that was made on 1.1 and both problems are fixed.

    Yeah I think it did require a hard restart at some point. Just hold down the contacts button and the crown until it restarts.

    Just a heads up, if you are a current developer and have access to the Beta software you are currently under an NDA and shouldn't be talking about new features/bugs in a public forum.

    Just don't want anyone in trouble is all.
