    I'm having problems trying to do the latest update. Phone keeps saying I can resume download when I am connected to wifi. I am connected so don't know what to do next. I have tried switching phone and watch off and back on again. The download restarts but soon stops.

    Anyone else had this p[roblem?

    I have had that in the past - i just kept trying and eventually it worked - it takes a long time to update sometimes.

    Make sure both the watch and the iPhone are plugged in to a power source while updating and don't mess with them while updating - keep them close together - I think it is blue tooth that does the update to the watch

    Sorry not the silver bullet you are looking for - maybe someone else has an update trick or info that I don't have and will share it

    It does take a while to update

    It's sorted now. I went to Apple website and they suggested deleting the update file and then trying again. Did that and it went through OK

    I’m having the same problem. Where do you find the update file to delete it?

    Edit: The watch eventually updated, although it took a loooong time.
