    Seem unusual there has been a lack of stable release / updates to the software? I know 2.0 is beta but come on release an incriminate update besides 1.01

    There've been multiple beta updates, so guess I'm satisfied that they are working on it.

    I agree and have wondered this too. There are quite a number of minor bugs that, in my opinion, should be addressed in minor updates leading up to os2. The dang sunset one comes to mind.

    My hunch is that Apple declared OS1 "good enough" last year and redeployed the entire development team on OS2. The 1.0.1 micro update probably cost them a dozen important OS2 features that they had to delay into OS3.

    That is a little in jest, but not much. Given the timing, I bet that OS1 is essentially an abandoned code stream. If the watch released on time last fall, then we probably would have seen a number of updates with fixes and enhancements that are now being packaged in OS2.

    I was wondering this myself, too. Are the betas that are out there not for watchOS 2.0, though? That's not out for a few months so I was wondering if there'd at least be a patch or minor version bump for what we have now, addressing some things. As of now, it's looking like there'll be nothing until we get 2.0.
