    Not yet. I would first have to install iOS 11 on my iPhone and I'm not quite ready to back down that road again.

    I stopped with the betas. I got tired of getting every beta update and going from iOS 10 to 11 makes me want to wait until the apple's polished.

    I've been using Siri periodically and like that Modular shows everything at a glance while Siri doesn't. Might just have to play around with the complications a bit.
    I see. So can I safely say that Siri watch face does allow more complications but will need to be scrolled in order to view?

    I am really looking forward to wOS4, especially after seeing the 9t5Mac video!

    There are some great little tweaks that will make the Watch even more efficient to use. I can't wait for it's release into the wild.
    It's pretty cool so far, I'm trying to like the Siri watch face but being a Modular user, not having everything there at once is a bit of a challenge.

    Right, but even then it doesn't show everything. I have stopwatch included in my options, but scrolling I don't see it. I believe it's supposed to predict when you might want/need it based on prior use, but it's not readily available to me.

    Hmmm....so seems like the Siri watch face is a little more complicated to use. I'll need to explore it once the OS 4's official release is out.

    If you're using Modular, it may not work for you. I'm still getting used to it, but it does show some good info.

    Here is a great video from 9to5mac:
    After watching this video, I take back what I said about being disappointed with OS4. As I'd hoped, the presentation at WWDC barely scratched the surface of the new OS4 features. Maybe they should have just played this video instead.

    Now I can't wait to try it. I won't run the betas because, you know, I'm not crazy, but still I do really want it right now!

    But Siri watch face means need to activate Siri in order to use it?

    No, it uses cards based off of Siri Suggestions.

    Thanks for the info. I guess to try out personally is the best way to understand. Till then, have to wait for the official release.

    Yes I watched this part during the live streaming of the Keynote, but still need to hands on to get a better understanding of how Siri watch face works. I'm just excited to see all the new features of watchOS 4.

    I knew there would be much more to wOS4 than shown at the keynote. That's why I'm really, never underwhelmed that early (if ever) in the game.

    There are a lot of very handy tweaks in 4 that I can't wait to use- stuff that I'll use daily. Even a few that I hadn't thought of that will make the Watch even more efficient (read: natural) to use.

    I don't regret a single moment of being an early immediate adopter. The Watch did stuff I wanted right out of the gate and continues to get even better.

    There's not quite enough brass in my jeans to go to 11 and 4 betas. I did that once with no problems but the incremental betas got annoying. But 4 is tempting.

    I've been running iOS 11 and WatchOS 4 since the first day it was available. Aside from the normal bugginess of both, I really like them. I find myself using the Siri watch face more than any other and the more I use it, the better the information it presents me. Oddly, one of the better updates with WatchOS 4 is the unlock screen. I have big fingers and the numbers seem much easier to touch accurately. The "jump up" animation when each number is touched gives good visual feedback that I've hit the right one. Now I can enter my unlock code almost first time, every time.

    I'm not aware of Os4. Is it in beta format. According to Apple it won't be out until September

    watchOS 4 is available now as a Developer beta. It can also be 'found' around the 'net for non-devs. It'll be available as a public beta long before the General Release in Sept.


    P.S. You'll also need the iOS11 beta on your phone to use wOS4.
