    Default WatchOS 3

    Yes me to. Apple is being very stubborn on the watch faces and it's annoying.

    I just hope updating the weather on my phone, won't continue to take several minutes.

    Funny you mention weather. I get mad every time I try to load my weather app. The only one I can load successfully most of the time in OS2 is Carrot (but it's not fast). The others don't load at all.

    That's strange. All my weather apps load on my AW, including Yahoo Weather.

    Weather Underground is the worst. I love that app on my iPhone and it's my go to there, but I think I've only gotten it to open twice ever.

    My favorite is Carrot Weather and the default one. Let's hope watchOS 3 will significantly fix Weather Underground too.

    The reason I like Weather Underground is because it displays a radar image on the watch. I haven't seen any other weather app that offers that.

    As for it loading, it will load but it can take many minutes to find a my load.

    I think it's issues with proper syncing to the phone. I use Dark Sky and it took quite some time to update. Spark did as well.

    Question, has anyone noticed their Watch resetting itself? I've noticed it quite a few times, it'll go to the  logo and reboot itself. Usually only when I receive an influx of notifications. Which I did see earlier this week.

    I see. The only weather app that offers a radar image (not on watch) on my iPhone is a local weather app.

    Can I ask how that scribble feature is working for you? Is it the addition we needed to write a quick, personal message on the go?

    It works good for what it is. It bogged down on me when I receiving notifications and trying to scribble. Other than that, I can't scribble with the speed I would like, if you try to scribble too fast the system can't keep up. You have to go word by word. For what it is, it's good, it's just not as fast as I would like. I still use it all the time though.

I'm really going to take advantage of that feature.......The UI is a tad faster, but not enough to wow anyone, in my opinion. Deleting iMessages are quicker, but it still doesn't have a delete-all option therein. Anyway, to those of you who have installed watchOS 3, what are your thoughts of it?
    I've my developer profile installed on iPhone (iOS 10) and my Watch isn't finding the update when I check for it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    There is a separate profile for the watch beta.

    Only complaint is better is not there but it will eventually get there. On 2.2.1 or whatever last official build is I would always have around 50% left at end of day. I've been only having about 30% left on beta 1. I never came close to that much drain on official build.

    Reboot your iPhone and then use the Watch app to check for the WatchOS 3 beta update.

    I wonder if that has to do with the background updates that make the watch faster? I'm ok with 30% left if the watch runs faster.

    May have to spring for the developer license so I can get the update since there are no public betas for watchOS (or tvOS)!

    Actually it was bad for just the first few days. Now for whatever reason, In back to having around 50% battery at the end of the day again.

    Also, I do have a dev account so I don't have to search the wild but your watch does not need to be registered and there are plenty of configuration profiles out there in the wild. Just be aware if you update, there is no downgrading unless you mail your watch in to Apple for service with a fee. So load at your own risk.

    Cool -- kind of like the phone usually does.

    Good point -- maybe when the iOS 10 Public Beta comes out it'll be a better time to do it.

    My watch is back to having horrendous battery again. It's so up and down. Nothing I'm doing different. It's the beta life.

    Ok I'm holding off, at least for a week or so. Will see how the public beta of 10 goes and what the next watchOS betas look like before jumping in.

    mine has bad battery life too. I've even unpaired it and re-paired but the battery still drains, even without using it a lot.

    Not sure if you have jumped into the beta's. I have been running both iOS 10 on my iPhone 6 and watch 3 since being released to developers. I have not had any real issues so far with either one. My phone has froze up once and a reboot cleared that. I had one game crash upon opening, but when started again was no issue. Have received an update to that game since and it has solved the problem. My watch has not seen any issues. But I am aware of others having issues. But they have been happy to have the updates verses the few bugs they are seeing.
