This is the first time I have a day off from work when an OS first comes out. What time should I be able to download WatchOS6?

I think some time around Mid day EST is when the updates come out. You'll have to be on iOS 13 first and then do Watch OS. What I've found is the first day is pretty hard on Apple's servers due to demand, so between that wanting to get feedback from others on the latest and greatest, I wait at minimum a day or two and often until the first service packs are released.

I'm excited for this and can't wait. I have developer 13 and I've been using that for a while. I might wait to download it and make sure I don't screw up my achievements and activity information first, but I'll be tempted.

Does anyone know if I can get WatchOS 6 while running ios13.1 Beta? I have removed the beta profile on my phone, so I assume I won't get any update on that until the 30th when 13.1 is supposed to be out. Just wondering if I will have to wait that long to get WatchOS 6 also.

Right now the watch app shows 5.3.1 available.

Thanks

I’m wondering that too. I removed the profile, shut down the phone and turned it back on. Nothing new.

I would imagine that we can get running 13.1, but I don't know for sure. It has not come up for me either. The good news is that 13.1 will be dropping on the 24th, not the 30th. I just saw a couple tweets about that. Seems to be legit.

Showed up for me. Don't know if it makes a difference but I was charging it. As soon as off charger update became available.
