    Anyone able to get their watch to connect to wifi? Mine seems to connect for a second and then immediately drop. I'm wondering if this is an OS 3 bug. Thanks!

    It could have to do with your wifi base your using currently. I would reset your Watch and see if this makes a difference.

    This may be a stupid question, but that never stopped me before.
    New to the Apple Watch, how do I know if I'm connected to wifi?

    Swipe up to see control panel, you will see a wifi icon instead of the phone icon for connected.

    Mine connects to wifi fine as long as my iPhone has already connected to the network.

    Interesting. I guess mine has never connected to wifi as I have only ever seen the green phone icon. Is there anything I need to setup in the app for wifi connection? This is only my second day as an AW owner.

    If your phone is on, it will connect to the phone. Turn your phone off or put it in airplane mode and your Watch should connect to wifi.

    Thank you. I had no idea. Green phone icon turned to a green cloud icon as soon as I put the phone in airplane mode. I love learning new stuff!
