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.

I did this 15 mins ago.. Unpaired. Apple Watch went off and now won't come back on... Did you have any issues like this??

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.
