    I think the wake for 70 seconds setting is new for the watch face on tapping the screen?

    Saw that mentioned on Twitter... it's a new feature.

    I just finished installing WatchOS 2 Beta 5, and so far so good. The wrist turn feature is a tad more sensitive. Apps open a tad quicker, too.

    Me too. Another positive change is the brightness level. Now it's ok, according to the lights - beta4 was far too strong most of the time.

    I've used this now since it was available and it has been great. No issues at all with this one...so far.

    Silky smooth and everything seems to work without crashing etc. Battery life is back to the original OS1 standard lasting me almost two days.

    iOS 9 beta 5 seems the best so far on the iPhone too!

    Things are looking good. 👍🏻

    How does it look? On a normal everyday watch is it worth it to upgrade to watchOS 2 b5, how stable? Is it glitchy?

    Where I can find the link to download the beta 5, or I need to download just watch os and they auto update to beta 5?

    It's available via Apple's developer portal...and if you're in the Developer Program, you'll know what to do.

    Or... if you're adventurous... you'll need your iPhone running an iOS9 beta... you'll need to download the Watch configuration beta profile from a 3rd party source... use your iPhone to install that profile to our watch - then do the software update process via the Watch App on the iPhone...

    The look of the OS isn't changed too much. Some tweaks by adding color to the fitness complication etc.

    I haven't experienced any glitches, black screen or anything in fact that would stop me from recommending you to upgrade to os2 but everyone's experience seems to be different.

    The new time lapse watch faces are nice, the Apple Music app is good.

    I would go for it!

    I'm not a developer btw and only have one watch as a daily driver.

    Same here, stable as a rock so far. Vast improvement, which one would expect I suppose.

    It was for me yesterday. I re-paired this morning. Better but not as good as before. BUT i bet it will stabilize in a day or 2 as it did before. I don't even know if the re-pairing was needed. Can't hurt. I think this is a pattern- load beta, be patient for 48 hours, it all works out on phone and watch. I bet it's indexing, getting to know networks or something that stabilizes after a short time.

    I went ahead and did it... all seems mostly well so far... still have an issue with the Workout app on the watch - used the "Outdoor walk" - it still doesn't want to record what I do in terms of exercise time under the Activity app... and no matter what setting I have the 'On Tap' wake set at - it only stays lit for 15 seconds.

    Edit to add... rebooted the watch - double checked the setting for the wake duration... rebooted the watch - and now it stays lit for the 70 seconds...

    Hmmm. Maybe try rebooting the watch. As is stated yesterday, I think, if I have it set for 70 seconds and then raise and turn my wrist, the display stays lit for 15 seconds, but if I tap to wake it, it stays lit for 70 seconds. It's still a glitchy setting, though. Hopefully, it'll iron itself out or the next update will make it less glitchy.

    If this is meant for me then you are mistaken. I get excellent battery life with both my Watch and my iPhone 6 Plus.

    My Watch has been off the charger for about 12 hours today with about 4 hours of time in an area I don't really get signal and I'm sitting at 74% battery left. This is absolutely the best battery life I've seen so far, and yes I'm on beta 5.

    This being my first foray into Watch beta and being less than 24 hours in, I have an observation/theory after being in a place where wifi was sporadically unavailable...my watch battery took a hit... just my limited experience...

    Edit to add... Battery was still draining ridiculously over the afternoon... Unpaired and re-paired the watch...so far so good...

    Is anyone else having trouble opening 3rd party apps on Apple Watch? None of mine work since installing watch os2 beta 5.

    Not so far. Just used Shazam yesterday. Which apps? Maybe someone can try specific ones.
