    WatchOS 6 is running really well on my Series 3 Watch. No problems with it whatsoever...

    Ditto!!
    Also, I like how the ‘now playing’ app’s control screen’s large circle around the playback controls shows the current position of the music track/audio media playing back. Before it showed the volume level adjustments, that’s now shown on the upper right hand side of the screen as a green vertical bar (which only appears as you’re adjusting the volume with the Digital Crown).

    OMG the wifi is horrible here at work, and it's taking forever. I'm still seeing 14 hours to install. What happens if I pull it off the charger and wait til I get home tonight?

    Not much. If it’s downloading, you’re good to take it off charger and wear the Watch.
    Just make sure to never take it off charger while it’s in the process of updating. There is a subtle difference between downloading an update and performing an update.

    By performing an update, do you mean installing an update?

    Another pro tip: when downloading an update to the watch, disable Bluetooth in Settings. That will kill the Bluetooth radio entirely and force the watch to download over WiFi, which is significantly faster than over Bluetooth. Food for thought.

    I'm not sure about this. When I turned off the Bluetooth, the watch disconnected from my iPhone and the update stopped altogether.

    That’s weird. My watch connects to the same WiFi as my iPhone when I disable Bluetooth.

    Do you by any chance have iCloud Keychain turned off?

    My big question is I have a 98% charge on my watch. Why do I have to have it on the charger to update ???

    It pauses the download...

    Also try shutting BT off when at home and let me know what happens. Might have some kind of IT policy at your office.

    Because Apple wants to make sure a dead battery isn’t the reason that an update didn’t finish installing.
    Battery life on an Watch is amazing. But apparently not amazing enough for Apple to entrust an update on it.

    I absolutely hate not having the app store in the iPhone watch app. I'm not going to browse for apps using my watch only. Gonna have to figure out how to search the regular app store for watch complications.

    Having it on the watch is not a bad thing but NOT also having it on your phone is just flat annoying.

    So it’s supposed to be like that then? I thought maybe I was just having issues on the phone. I’m in agreement with you. Trying to look at/read descriptions on the Watch is a PITA.

    As for the update I’ve had to reboot my watch twice so far to get things working correctly. Have never had to do that before.
