    I've updated my Watch from 1.0.1 to watchOS2 beta4. My battery life is very bad, in 90minutes it went down from 100% to 75%... Do you have any idea what to do? Reset/unpair,etc?

    (in addition, the watch is lagging too..)
    Unpair and then pair again

    Second this. Especially if you are restoring from a back up of the watch. I would just install as new.
    Issue being, the 1.0.1 backup might have stuff in it that might create problems for the current os.

    I'm going to have to troubleshoot after work, my watch blacked out, had to hard reset it and now it won't stay connected to my phone. Just out of the blue, no reason for it.

    More sad news, I tried unpairing my watch to to repair it, no go, the watch didn't take it, however the app did. Now I'm stuck in Bluetooth limbo.

    This was the solution. Installed as new. Now with some lagging but the battery life is like v1.0.1!

    Is there a feedback to apple for watchOS beta4? I'd have several notes:
    -pinging the phone is not working
    -despite i set the brightness to the lowest value most of the times the display is very bright (brightest value)...

    Yeah...I'm going to have to try redoing the update, Bluetooth won't work on my Apple Watch. Even after I reset all settings and did more install.

    My Watch is constantly disconnected. None of 3rd party app work. Not a single of it. However, Apple apps works quite well and maybe even faster than 1.0.1.

    Reset did not help. I reset as new (not restore from backup) 3 times already but it's still the same.

    I've had 'one' reboot that occurred yesterday while I was at work, but other than that, I've not had any issues with my apps. The 3rd-party apps I have on my Watch are minimal:

    OneNote
    Slack
    Skype
    Weather Underground
    NOAA Radar Pro
    Gas Guru
    Stocard

    Ok, some good news, finally got iOS 9 beta 4 downloaded and reinstalled it on my phone. Apple Watch connected, it's still restoring the backup and setting up, but hopefully I'm good now.

    I have updated to 2.0 following the instructions on this video. I have had some shut downs for no apparent reason. I think I may have updated since I followed the instructions on the video. Does anyone have any idea how to determine what beta version you are currently running. Perhaps it is coded into the version number in some way? Thanks!

    Small update, a few hours into having my Apple Watch back up and running, and the only issue I've run into was weather syncing to the watch. That fixed itself when I switched from wifi to data. Other than that, so far so good.

    Hmm, no so good anymore, watch stopped receiving notifications again even though it says it's still connected, so does my phone.

    Reset the Watch, and then again for good measure. Afterwards, pair it with your iPhone and set it up as new. I did that after mine turned itself off while at work around the same time on two consecutive days, and I haven't had the issue since. In fact, the two shutoffs were the only problem I've had with WatchOS 2. The TV remote app issue is not even worth mentioning in this regard.

    I've done that, what's weird though is I didn't get notifications for a few texts, but I received the tapatalk notification for being quoted.

    That is weird. Well, hopefully, it'll iron itself out.

    Seems like it might be, I did get a notification for a text. It may have been because my signal strength was low.

    Installed and all seems fine so far. Obviously too early to see anything in terms of battery life but things can only be better eh?!
