    Default Re: Apple Watch 3.0

    Ive got to wait til I get home from work to hook mine to the charger...or so it says, before I can load. I'd like to hear from others as to what's new and what to expect!

    Question: If my phone is 95% charged...do I still need to hook it to it's charger?

    1. It's much faster *** reported before.

    And 2. Complications are better.

    To me it felt like a whole new watch out of the box!.

    What a great update! Feels like a brand new watch.

    But, time travel isn't working for me. Was this feature dropped?

    I missed out on the experience. Apparently I had updated to the beta GM, so I was already at 10.0.

    I think you're getting confused with your phone, this is about the WatchOS.

    Trying to update now. My phone originally said 6 hours remaining. 5 minutes later it says 2 hours. Hopefully this can be completed within an hour before I leave work.

    So is my response. I'm not the one confused.

    While on some iOS 10 beta, I deleted the iOS beta profile from my phone so as to get the Official 10.0 iOS today, and I did.

    I also deleted the watchOS beta profile hoping to do the same thing- get the Official wOS 3 Update. Apparently I got the GM for wOS 3 as checking Software Update via the WatchApp, it says my Watches are up to day with watchOS 3.0 and doesn't show the Update badge on the settings icon. Restarting both the phone and Watches gave the same message. So I didn't get to do on the Watches what I did on the phone.

    I'm on Public Beta GM and I don't see an update for WatchOS 3. Any ideas why?

    Because they're the same build.

    Got it. Thanks. Restart your watch and phone and try again. It should be there. Make sure your watch has more than 50% charge.

    3.0 is a big improvement over 2.0, and when apps get updated for it (I saw some today) it should be even better!

    True, but I'm almost disappointed. I've been on the 3.0 beta since b3 and and am pretty used to it, so the big Official release a big deal for me. Ok, Find my Apple Watch is a surprise. (Please don't tell me it was available in the betas!) But yeah, it's a big improvement over 2.anything.

    I'm looking forward to it, but it's brutally slow!

    I get ya now. I thought the GM release was just the full public release that beta testers got a week or so early as a thank you for the testing.

    I was only on the public beta so could only do my iPhone, I got the GM last week.

    By that reasoning there would be no new update/difference from yesterday's releases.

    My watch is still on 2.2.2 and each time I check for software update it keeps saying I'm up to date. How do I get the 3.0 update? My iPhone is on 10.0.1.

    The watch takes a long time to update, unfortunately.
