Hello!

It has happened twice now: my Apple Watch looks like it's restoring/updating (showing the Apple Watch Basic screen with the progress ring), but at the end my watch is just like before. It happens every time my iPhone (on iOS 13 beta) is updated...
I've checked and the watch is not actually updating.
Anyone know what's up?

Phew. That's all I needed to know, that I'm not the only one hehe
Although I wonder was is happening as physical activity kept being recorded

I’m not sure. I’ve seen a few posts here where this has happened. I always make sure to update the phone first then the watch but today this happened.... I’m not sure what it’s doing or if it’s a placebo effect but i do feel the watch snappier after it finished
