    Most of you know, I don’t deal with watch betas. It’s takes way too long to do a watch update and you can’t downgrade the OS without shipping your watch back to Apple.

    So with that said, since it’s the GM copy is out now I decided to load it. 2.5 hours later, it’s finally done. They is an awful update experience from Apple. For those of you have the patience to load betas, Apple should give you guys a cookie for having the patience for installing updates.

    Time to play with it and see what’s new.

    My first gen 38mm took 10 minutes to download the update and another 35 to 45 minutes for the update to be finished.
    That’s significantly less than the 2.5 hours I read here

    Yeah. Started it when I started the keynote last night. The watch finished about 30 minutes after the keynote was over.

    Yeah my series 2 42mm took almost 90 mins to download. And internet speeds was not the problem since I get 300-350 DL speeds at home. Then another hour to install.

    Go watch Titanic. Maybe it will be done by the time the movie is over.

    Okay.
    Well, I hope the update process will even be faster on series 3.

    If it is, good for that watch. I’m pleased with my space black SS series 2 and have no intentions on a new watch this year. Only thing I dread is the updating of the OS process.

    I would’ve thought that the update process is much faster since two years ago... I guess it’s not there yet.

    If the official build is the same as the one you’re running you won’t get an update.

    I would generally have about 70-75% battery left at the end of the day in my 42 mm series 2 on the latest official watch os 3 build. My first full day I had 63% left on watch os 4. Time will tell how battery really is but I can’t recall having only 63% left unless I was using the workouts app.

    Does WatchOS have the ability to display your steps as a complication?

    The series 0, or better known as the first gen, performs much better on watchOS 4 than it did in watchOS 3. At least that’s my own experience.
