    hardest part about the watch beta is finding the cert to install so you can get the update lol

    No issues so far. Certainly as good as 3 so far. 10% total battery use in almost 3 hours. Not bad.

    I would wait if you are on 1.0.1. We need to use it for a week to figure out what's broken. I personally have no battery issues like b1. But I don't use lots of apps and glances.

    Haptic is back. File Transfers fixed. Siri launched from crown could show words that weren't spoken. Notes say use Hey Siri instead.

    There are some code level problems mentioned that may still impact apps.

    I did have one random watch crash/reboot opening glances (that i had just added to). But it connected to phone without problem and all the glances worked.

    Been running Beta 4 now for 24-hours. Thoughts:

    Runs smooth. This is the first WatchOS Beta I've run because I heard nothing but horror stories from 1-3. Battery life seems to be okay, I disconnected it around 3 with 100% batter and came home around 11:30PM with 65% left. It's still a bit off from 1.0.1, but certainly can last all day. It did crash once out of the blue but I held the 2 buttons until it rebooted and all was well, no issues with pairing it again. The time-lapse watch faces get old really quickly, and I'm sure take a toll on battery so now I'm just running my old face. Other than that, I don't see too many new things to be overly excited about WatchOS 2. I'm sure they're in there, but nothing really sticks out just yet.

    I seem to be getting horrible battery life on beta 4, 1.0.1 and the first three betas I would easily be only around 50% battery after being off he charger for 14-16 hours, but on beta 4 I'm down to 10-15% battery life. I'll give it a few more days to see what it does.

    Other than the battery life, how is WatchOS 2 performing for you?

    Alright, against my better judgment, I went ahead an installed WatchOS 2 beta 4. I've had it installed now for about 5 or 6 hours, and I've yet to have any reboots, crashes, freeze-ups, etcetera. In fact, everything is working as it should, and the battery life appears to be pretty much the same as with WatchOS 1.01. My apps work and hopefully, this experience will continue.

    I think Apple has been doing really well betas this time around, minimal issues. I figured my battery life based off a rough estimate after I got off work and it figured to around 28.5 hours total lifespan, which is still really good. As I said though, I'll give it a couple days to see if it's just from the update process.

    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..)

    I would wait it out for a day to see if it gets better. Phones at least, sometimes take a couple of days after a new version to settle out. Or un-pair and setup as new. That helped me on b2.

    Hope it works out.
