    I bought an Apple watch when it first came out and decided to take it back because it was just to slow. I know Apple makes improvements with every update but is it much faster with 2.2 ?

    I am considering buying one again .

    Thanks

    It is a first generation product.. And no, I don't think 2.2 made it any faster.

    There's always a Watch 2

    Yeah sadly it's still pretty slow. Looking forward to version 2 coming with a large speed bump.

    A faster chipset (or more efficient apps?) without any effect on battery life would be good.

    I did a unpair/repair and didn't restore from a backup and then turned on Reduce Motion and Reduce Transparency. In the Accessibilities. Watch seems to be running a lot snappier now. Still overall slow compared to where I'd like it to be but much happier with it.

    Mine doesn't run slow, it keeps perfect time

    Seriously, some apps do run slow but it is app dependent. I have several weather apps, one takes forever and doesn't do any more than the others. I think some developers program better than others.

    It's ridiculously slow sometimes. Yes, you can use the watch for some things but it will be faster to bike home, boot the computer and do it there sometimes.

    I use it mostly passively. Time, track daily exercise and see notifications.
