    Yep workout app takes a few touches to get going sometimes, been like if for a while now even after updates, Nike AW2. My Wife has AP3 and is much faster. Planned obsolete probably, mine is only 18 months old.

    Mine is about that same age too. I have to reset it about 3-4 times a week, it will get so slow and sticky I cant' even slide faces. Yesterday it came in super dim, took several shakes and button presses to get it to light up. Had to reset it again. I won't get another AW, I'll go with something else for a change next watch. Mine only worked really good for about months, then as time went on, it keeps growing more and more annoying quirks.

    That’s the same issue my daughter has with hers. I hope it’s not planned obsolescence since the watch isn’t that old.

    The workout thing is a bug. I had the same thing on my s3. It’s fixed in watchOS 5. My workouts start instantly now.

    My workouts have been starting instantly on my S2 since watchOS 4.2; my watch really never lags. Sometimes it'll be a little unresponsive just as a notification is coming in.

    I wonder if it has to do with how many apps are installed? I always turn off the feature to install all apps automatically (watch app, general, turn off "Automatic app install") and I install only those watch apps that I really use (Overcast, DarkSky, AutoSleep).

    My Series 2 is getting to the point of unusable to do anything on. Even raise to wake to see the time gets a delay now.

    Pressing the screen or the Digital Crown doesn’t always wake it. Starting apps is very sluggish to the point where I give up and go back to the Home Screen.

    The Workouts app takes an absolute age to respond, and I look like a bit of an ***** repeatedly hitting start activity on the screen to get it to respond.

    I might do a reset and start the watch off again from scratch, but I have noticed it get progressively slower since watchOS 4 came out.

    I don’t want to know what watchOS 5 is going to be like on it at this point!

    I still use my Series 2 as a back up and I’ve noticed it has slowed down quite a bit. It lags on occasions and loading certain things take a bit longer. My Digital Crown doesn’t even work anymore. Luckily I can still swipe on the screen. It’s still manageable as I only use it when I’m at work. Then I switch to series 4 at home. What a difference.
