    Ladies, and Gentlemen As I am no genius on this, I guess it was just by luck that i was able to figure this out. I also was one of you that jumped the gun and installed all the Beta OS. On my Applewatch, iPad, iPhone, OS X. But as Beta goes, they are all but too buggy for everyday use. So to the good stuff. I have highlighted the info below that will help solve this head ache!!

    Pre-work: Make sure your iPhone that the watch is synced to and has the old back up is still running iOS 9. It will need to find the backup 1.0 Applewatch file

    Step 1. Factory Restore Applewatch
    Step 2. Sync Watch manually do not use the QR scanner as it only reads the 2.0 profile
    Step 3. Restore from backup any previous 1.0 back up. 1.0.1 backups will not work as it was an OTA update
    Step 4. Let watch do it's magic

    And........wait for it, wait for it..... Repaired!! Back to WatchOS 1.0
    Follow OTA update back to 1.0.1 and recover your backup file.

    I suggest everyone remove iOS9 as well after the watch is fully restored.

    Thank you.

    Only tough part is having the 1.0 file, my watch never made a backup before going to 2.0

    I did the Erase All Settings option on the Watch. Manually paired it with my iPhone running 9.0. Let it restored a backup from May 9th and this method did NOT work unfortunately. Still on 2.0.

    I wonder why it work for some and not others. Either the first guy didn't really fix it. Or somehow you missed a step?

    Can you believe I just deleted my 1.0 backup just 20 minutes before?

    I am testing this now. I did have 4 separate 1.0 backups, so I am lucky. I am not one to delete backups until I need to for space. I guess that is a good thing.

    UPDATE: This DOES NOT work. I did exactly as was described and my watch is still on 2.0. I am willing to bet the OP still is as well, and just thinks they are back on 1.0. Or they never successfully upgraded to WatchOS 2.

    It said 1.0 on the backup. When that backup was done there was no 1.0.1 yet.

    It did not work. Do not waste your time. I am going to bet that Apple will release a solution if enough people were to voice their problems on the developer forums. I am hoping that beta 2.0 somehow allows it to pair with iOS 8.4 at least for those of us who only want to downgrade our phones.

    This DOES NOT WORK! In fact just to make sure I didn't mess it up I tried it 2 different times. I also had a 1.0 backup. I'm giving up and just leaving it the way it is. I'm sick of restoring this damn thing lol.

    HI everyone,

    This was working but for some reason the watch told me to pair with iPhone again. After i downgraded my iPhone to iOS 8.3 it did not work??? This sucks. I will keep trying as i believe we are getting a bit closer.

    That's part of 2.0Beta. I also seen it on the options but when you select it, it does nothing. Complications is a new feature they were demoing during WWDC
