    Yesterday I updated my Series 0 to 3.2 from 3.1.3 and I am noticing a very strange and rather annoying bug. Just wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing this.

    Prior to 3.2, when I would go to the dock, it would be left on the last app I used from the dock. So say I click the side button, went to the dock and went into messages. I could come back the next day, click the dock button and messages would be the app that was ready to go. Since yesterday, watchOS 3.2, the dock automatically opens to the last used app, regardless if I used it from the dock or not. I find this annoying because I have my dock set up for certain apps and this prevents quick access to it.

    Yes I too have noticed this annoying bug. I too have apps ready to go in the dock, and then other apps as complications on the watch ⌚️ face. Hopefully the Beta just released will address this issue.
    It makes the extra step of scrolling to the needed app cumbersome and time consuming. Nothing smooth about it!

    I can also attest and I have tested this as well. It does revert back to the previous application you were using when opening the dock. I can see how this could be inconvenient. I will make an effort to report the error/concern to Apple.

    I noticed that too.
    I don't think it is a bug, it has to be on purpose. And I prefer the old behaviour, so I'll send'em a feedback

    Thanks all! Much appreciated! Hopefully if they see an influx over the same issue at the same time they will give us a quick response.
