My series 2 starting to have notifications to upgrade to watchOS 6.1. Is it worth it to upgrade? The series 2 has been working great with warchOS 5. I wonder if there’s any legitimate advantage going watchOS 6 at all. I don’t really care about an App Store on the watch. Any comments?

Worth is a subjective term really. Maybe go through the features and see if you feel like it.

I’d say no. There is no noticeable features for series 2, and performance hit could be real.

I upgraded my Series 2 and it actually improved my battery life and no significant difference in performance that I've noticed.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

So jumped the gun and updated my series 2 to 6.1 overnight. So far so good and I haven’t noticed any major issues. No immediate changes that I noticed (which is a good thing imo) other than the new App Store app.
