    Be interested
    How many here downloaded it and it was fine and who’s bricked. I’m finding it hard to understand why all of us weren’t affected here. Interested for those here who were ok.

    I'm curious as well. I can't understand how some had issues and some didn't. I do know the next sw update I'll be more standoff until the coast is clear.

    Mine went well. I have series 2, the battery life has improved a lot since the update

    Mine went fine - took quite a long time (around an hour to download and install) but everything is OK. Haven't noticed any substantial battery life increase on the series 2 but it was good to begin with.

    Interesting. And the Series 2 already has impressive battery life. At least it worked out well for you.

    Good thought with the poll - I should have added that with my thread yesterday.

    Early yesterday morning I woke to a bricked watch, came to MR, and within a couple pages of comments on a news article about the update being available, I found a dozen people who all had the same thing happen. Something definitely wacky going on.

    Apple seems to have pulled the 3.1.1 update yesterday. Presumably because of the bricking issue.

    Updated yesterday with no issues. Whole process went quite smoothly, though it did take quite a while.

    Same here and my series 0 is a bit sickly at the best of times.

    I installed via the developer profile to the latest beta a couple of days ago (it's the exact same build as the GM release). Funnily enough, I was a bit worried about doing so after reading what you'd have to do if a developer beta update bricks the Apple Watch, but I elected to try it out after seeing some reports of the smooth update here and on Twitter. Lo and behold, the GM public release then bricks devices. Go figure!

    I have a developer account and updated to the last beta of 3.1.1 on my Series 2 watch as soon as it became available (I don't remember the exact day, but it was at some point last week). The update loaded fine. I know the public release version should be the same as the final beta that I installed, but I wonder if something did change in the file? There were a couple of betas along the way, so also wonder if the incremental updates had anything to do with me not having a problem?

    My update went well, but even the betas always worked for me. Didn't think battery could improve more, but last night I put my watch back on at 8pm and this morning at 5am it was at 96%. Maybe it will drop faster in the first few hours this morning but at 6:20am it is at 95%.

    Series 0 and the update has improved the battery life for me. Used to die around 11pm but now it has over 30% left at midnight.

    I had no issues upgrading from 3.1 to 3.1.1 (no betas this time) yesterday on my S2 SS. I DID notice it took a long time.. like an hour. But it worked.

    On S2 I haven't noticed any battery improvement over what was stellar already in 3.1

    It took almost as long as the full iOS 10 update on a phone; but it is smooth.

    Mine was also fine (SBSS S2), but did take an hour or so.

    Mine bricked. Started the update at 8:30pm, climbed into bed, woke up at 1am and it was frozen on the progress wheel. Not even holding the side button (as advised by support on chat) did anything.
