    Any idea how to force the update? I've updated to iOS 9 beta 3, but the watch app is still saying "watchOS 2.0 Your software is up to date." Driving me nuts. Any ideas?

    Weird, I found the OTA for it immediately, whereas I can't seem to get the OTA for iOS.

    I'm in no hurry to update from WatchOS 1.01. It's working great with iOS 9 as-is, and until we are able to downgrade without having to have Apple send it off, I will stay put until iOS 9 GM hits.

    I discovered that if you go to the developer portal. Install the beta 2 profile to your iPhone it will then find the beta 3 when you hit the update button. Seems to be issue with beta 2 certificate.

    Has anyone else managed to brick their Watch? Mine was running just fine on beta 3 until around the time I updated my iPhone to iOS 9 beta 3. Now the screen doesn't even turn on on my watch. Can't seem to reset it, even leaving it plugged in it doesn't turn on so I don't think it's a dead battery. It also heats up quite a bit when on the charger.

    I had someone call in today saying the update between beta 3 and iOS 9 was incompatible for him. He's sending the watch back into apple to downgrade because he was getting server errors and the watch was going crazy.

    Hmm, I don't think it's a compatibility issue. I did just manage to get my Watch to turn back on. It's in the process of restoring a backup right now. I hope it works fine again now.

    I updated to ios 9 beta 3 first, then to WatchOS3 (all from Developer site). No issues at all. The new WatchOS seems to work seemlessly. Even the former complication issues / hangups (stocks, weather) seem to be resolved.

    Yeah, I decided to try holding the crown and power button simultaneously. It turned on, went to download dial and reset itself. I had to re pair to my iPhone and reinstall all my apps, the works. That was this morning, after a very short time my screen became unresponsive, I had to tap the crown and wait a few seconds for the screen to turn on and I couldn't interact with it. Great. So again I reset holding crown and power button simultaneously. Now so far, it is smooth and working better than ever. I think the exercise circle is working better too ha ha. I am on my feet literally all day at work and it has been telling me that I've had 0-1 minute(s) of exercise. Today though by lunch it says 15 minutes.

    You might need to unpair the watch again, delete the profile from your phone, then set it up as a new watch (don't restore from backup). Whatever bug or glitch exists should go away. I had something similar happen when updating from watch beta 1 to beta 2 and that process cleared it all up.

    I'll try that if it happens again, so far after the second reset it seems to be stable again.

    Thanks for this info. Worked like a charm for me.
