    Ticked off that some change doesn't work for you? Did you find a bug, especially one that's easily replicated?

    Commiserate, kvetch, etc.

    But let Tim know! Or least one of his deputies. Apple claims they read every one and I believe them. The don't say they respond in kind or will fix our perceived flaws in their software.

    With the exception of a slow update process, who’s having “Watch woes” while running watchOS 4?

    I can’t think of any woes.

    Only issue so far is that Now Playing won't stop showing when I play something on my phone. I do NOT want this.

    Battery life seems improved.

    On either the watch or the watch app on the phone, settings / general / wake screen. Turn off "Auto-Launch Audio Apps".

    No wonder I couldn't find it. That settings path makes no sense for the function.

    Three days in I have no problems/glitches/etc. I'm not wild about the change to the dock but I suppose I'll get used to it.

    Original Apple Watch isn’t playing sounds. Haptic alerts Working

    For a while, I wasn’t getting stand alerts at 50 minutes past the hour when I haven’t stood. Now, I’m regularly getting those alerts, but the watch is quite often not recognizing when I am standing. I walked about a quarter mile starting at 6:45 (not a workout - I walked at least that far from the car to the store, in the store, back to the car, etc.) and it did not recognize that I was standing in the 6:00 hour. And it was weird to get the alert at 6:50 as I was walking through the store. There are several examples of this the last couple of days. WatchOS 3 was solid for this for me.

    (Of course, I’ve often said that I think the stand ring is a ridiculous measure and I actually wish I could have the other two rings and not the stand ring...)

    I'm having the same problem. I set the Repeat timer so I get Stand Reminders that way (regardless if met the Stand requirement earlier). But on several occasions I didn't get a Stand out of it but did get the 'gray' bar. I've restarted both Watch and phone, and did the unpair/repair thing. No joy.

    I've since switched to my AW that's still at wOS3 and all is well, under the circumstances.

    I did get a stand reminder today when I had been standing for the past hour (and had moved for well more than a minute), but otherwise stand has been rock-solid today. I have my stand ring completed for the day already. Weird, as the last few days I hadn't completed the stand ring at all.

    Did you do anything to solve the problem with not getting alerts? I'm seeing the same things as you.

    At some point Sunday, I restarted the watch and the iPhone, but mostly because no alerts were going to the watch at all, despite being unlocked and powered on and the iPhone display sleeping. Since then, all alerts have been fine. (But I don’t know if that solved anything. Yet.)

    I am finding that turning so not disturb off in the morning on the watch or the iPhone does not mirror properly, but only the first time. If I do it a second time, it will mirror and mirroring is set properly in the settings. Anyone else having that issue?

    I use it often and it syncs instantly between watch and phoned regardless of on which one it is initiated.

    I also have not noticed that issue, no. (Though almost always my DND follows a schedule. It's rare that I initiate it.)

    iOS 11.0.1 is out. I'm hoping there might be a wOS 4.0.1 soon, unless some of these issues are with iOS and wOS is just inheriting them.

    I've got four issues. The first two are problems and the second two are likely just changes in the software I don't like.

    1) I didn't discover until yesterday that I'm not getting my 50 minute stand alerts. Unlike @doogald, I do value the stand alert. I often spend hours at a time, sitting and working on a pc. I see it as unhealthy to sit for hours without moving so I rely on the 50 minute reminder. I'll try restarts and see if that helps.

    2) Monday morning I didn't get the Weekly Summary and had to bring it up manually.

    3) I am no longer getting the weather on my run reports. I am getting the new heart rate data and like that.

    4) When I achieve my exercise goal during a run, it notifies me immediately and I find that distracting. It used to wait until after the run to pop up exercise and move goal notifications.

    It works for me. You may instead want to do an internet search for "apple watch feedback page". The first link should be this one.

    I frequently have that problem with links posted here. Not to mention there's been a lot of forum wackiness for me, lately. The unread post count for one, and being unable to reply to individual, specific comments in the Comments section of any of the articles.

    And FWIW, 11.01, was no joy for me too, prof.
