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.
    I wish I had your luck with watchOS 3. For the most part mine is fine, until it gets into a frenzy of freezing and rebooting. Then it's fine for a while again.

    My watch on 2.2.1 reboot in the middle of the night last night while sitting on the charger. That thing is bright in a dark room! No idea why...

    I've been using watchOS 3 for about 5 days and it's very stable. Battery is interesting. Some days @ 10% by 11pm. Not excellent but not bad.

    I just finished updating my watch. I would have already been finished but I had to leave to take care of a few things. Anyway, I don't foresee any problems with beta 2, especially when I didn't have any with the initial beta. Know what I mean?

    Been using watchOS 3 since it was released.

    beta 1: started off stable, got a bit buggy the last few days.

    beta 2 (released today, 7/5/16): so far, so smooth!

    A good deal of people were complaining about bad battery life. Hopefully, beta 2 fixes that for them.

    Default WatchOS 3

    My battery was absolutely horrendous on battery 1. Couldn't even make it the day on a charge. Still too early to say on beta2 but praying it's better than the last on battery. On 2.2.1 I would normally have 50% left at the end of the day.

    My wife can make through a day on beta 1 but because I do work outs I can barely get a day out of my watch. I hope beta 2 fixes the battery drain issue.

    I'm not sure if I like the new dismiss on messages. I like how it is, however it's no longer the way I use to it. I'll get used to it.

    Updated to b2. One small annoyance is that for the last few days, the weather complication is just blank.

    It just shows "--" - any remedy?

    which complication? Carrot? i had the same issue and had to switch to forecast bar for now. i posted it up in the Carrot app thread on macrumors so the dev can see it. other weather app complications work fine. Carrot worked without an issue on beta 1.

    So far battery usage on beta 2 is normal. Performance is so-so. Some basic functions are laggy. Siri animation lags big time. Activity analog watch face occasionally corrupts the visuals. Thats all I found so far.

    My battery may be slightly better than beta 1. Still horrible overall compared to 2.2.1.

    You never know. In a day or so I might say the same. Today is the first full day on a charge so still learning on how bad this battery for beta 2 is. But it's far from stellar. I would think by beta 3 we should start seeing it even out.

    On 2.2.1, I could go 18 hours of the charge and have 50%. 45 on a bad day. Right now in 12 hours off the charge and I'm at 37%. No Bueno.

    Yes!! My battery life was equivalent to yours on 2.2.1 so this has me concerned. I'll make it though, I have no choice now!

    So far on watchOS 3 beta 2 I have had watch faces corrupt (Watch was reflecting one set of faces, and the Watch App another set). Hard reset fixed it. I also had display corruption (colors, etc.). Activity tracking is not working properly. It is logging activity even when there is none. It logged a standing goal for me while I was sitting. It logged 3.6km of walking, yet I was in front of the computer all day with some minor walking here and there. Odd lag sometimes and occasional non-responsiveness to touch input. Mickey and Minnie do not speak the time even when the option is enabled.
