    After the 4 hour download of watch os 3, the install has been stuck on the screen where the apple logo is in the middle of the watch and all of the ticks have completed around the circle. It's been this way for 45 minutes and not budging. The phone can no longer find the paired watch. Botched update or ridiculously slow? Any thoughts?

    It did take that long to download. I have very fast wifi at home but the servers are slammed.

    Similar situation here. It finally downloaded, took all afternoon, but now it won't bring up any apps. Like mail just a spinning circle. Now it just says "mail" in the left top corner. Tried the Nike running app. Same thing, spinning circle.

    I just did a hard restart and now it seems to be working, but the first time launching each app is very slow. Seems fine when I go to open something that's already been launched the first time. Also, I have noticed the battery is draining fast. Will see if that eases up.

    Why does it take so long to update? Update the iPhone seemed much faster by comparison.

    I restarted the watch and it sorted itself out.
