Battery life bad after latest update, anyone else?

Ive noticed my watch god even worse battery life now since I updated it. A few weeks ago I had it aswell bu that was due to automatic updates trying to update all the time, but disabling that fixed it. But now I have to charge mine every day, before it was almost 48hours between charges atleast. Having reduced motion turned on did alot for my good ol Apple Watch 4. Anyone else experienced the same lately?

Polar h10 compatibility

Hi all, I’ve got an ultra that I go running with (without my 15PM). Recently bought the polar h10 and have it paired with the watch but not paired with the phone. I’ve done an indoor and an outdoor run (after manually connecting the strap) but i’m struggling to actually see the results post run. I’ve searched through the sub and did a few google searches but am struggling to go from here. There is no swipe option in the HR stats in the workout summary when viewing it on my phone.
Help? Ha.

MyQ Appears on ONLY One Apple Watch Face

I want to add MyQ as a complication on my Apple Watch. I discovered that I COULD, but only on the latest WatchOS 11 BETA version of the new Photos Face.

It doesn’t show up for any other watch face. I don’t get why it shows up here but not any of the other new or old faces.

Anybody have any ideas?

AW and dyshidrotic eczema?

Have any of you gotten an eczema breakout from your AW? I know some people get it directly where the watch contacts their skin - mine is happening on my opposite finger. The flare ups definitely pattern with wearing the watch. Has anyone else had this problem?

Apple Watch 3rd gen not recording steps/standing/exercise

Hello everyone, this is the second time this has happened to me. If my phone dies, my watch will not track anything for the rest of the day even after the phone has been charged. I have reset, hard reset, resynced both my iPhone and my watch. They are both up to date on their software as well. Is there anyway to fix this? I rely heavily on this feature. The rest of the watch features still work. Thank you!

Can HealthFace show health data from my family members?

My gf and I would like to challenge each other by making our step counts visible on each others' Apple Watch.

Does anybody know if this is possible with HealthFace?

nickel allergy

Looking to get a new apple watch. I have suddenly developed a nickel allergy. Does anyone have experience going to the stainless steel with a nickel allergy? The titanium watch is just too large for my wrist. I have dainty wrists, lol.

Just got my first Apple Watch

My girlfriend just got me my first Apple Watch as a birthday present. It’s an SE 44mm GPS.

Any tips for an absolute beginner to not only Apple Watch but to smart wearables altogether. How can I immediately get the most out of the watch considering I have multiple Apple products in the ecosystem I’ve accrued over recent years (iPhone, iPad, AirPods)

Thanks in advance

Apple support sitcom experience

Called Apple to order a replacement for my new-ish but dying Series 8 with AppleCare+

Me: My watch battery only lasts 7 hours even when I don't use it. It sits on a desk, locked, no notifications, no widgets, no background apps refresh, screen is off, no pending updates, and the watch still dies in 7 hours. I tried un-pairing, resetting, everything.

Support: Well, how long do you expect it to last?

Me: *bruh*

Support: *checking my logs* It looks like you're charging it too often.

Me: *bruh* I charge it to 100% every time when it dies. Which happens every 7-8 hours!

Support: Have you tried un-pairing?

Me: *bruh*

Apple Watch and iPhone 15pm alarm not syncing

I'm not sure if this a watch or phone problem. I recently upgraded to an iPhone 15 pro max and I already had an Apple Watch Ultra 2. I use the health app to set my wake up alarms and I have an automation that triggers from me turning off the alarm. Previously, when I turned off the alarm (not snoozed), the automation would trigger. Now I turn off the alarm on my watch and nothing happens. When I look at my phone, the alarm is still going off (it's on silent so I only see it but not hear it). As soon as I turn off the alarm on my phone, the automation triggers. Not sure what happened to the connection between the watch and phone after the upgrade, but if like to get this remedied.

Any ideas?

Apple Watch as flip phone

Like a lot of people I've been trying to reduce my phone usage, live more in the moment, etc. I still want to be reachable by friends and family and considered a flip phone but recently went in another direction and got a cellular Apple Watch (Ultra 2).

So far, it's filling the niche perfectly. I regularly leave home without my phone and can still text/call people to meet up, get quick directions, and helps me feel like I can really leave my phone behind most days. I live in Honolulu and spend a lot of time at the beach so it's like having a little waterproof phone I don't have to leave behind to be stolen. It's been great for coordinating meeting up with people.

So far, the only weirdness is around all the different ways I can get a message - WhatsApp, Instagram, Messenger, Discord, etc. I can reply directly from the notification but none of these have dedicated apps so I can't compose a new message from it. It's no problem because I can see the WhatsApp notification and then respond with a text. If I don't have their phone number I probably don't need to respond in the moment.
Here's hoping I get my screen time way down with this change! Anyone else tried using their watch as a daily driver and keep their phone at home?

Smart wake up app for watch

Is there any app for the Apple Watch that can wake you up in the correct cycle?

I found some (Sleepzy), but they don’t use the informations from the watch, they use the information from the phone (the moment I close the phone, not what cycle I am in).

So I got the S9 (aluminum case) yesterday, and today I scratched it in the pool, I bumped my wrist to the edge and now it has big and deep scratch :(

I got apple care, does anyone know if I can repair the screen with the apple care and then exchange it for an ultra?

Series 3 watch won’t update

My boyfriend gave me his old watch he doesn’t use anymore. He removed it from his iCloud and got rid of activation lock. However now, when I try to pair it with my phone, I receive an error saying it could not update because I am not connected to the internet. My phone is up to date, I have tried multiple wifis and received the same message.

I have tried: Restarting the watch Resetting the watch Restarting my phone Forgetting my wifi Signing out of iCloud

Nothing is working and Apple support told me to go to an Apple Store but the nearest one is hours away. If anyone has any advice or has had this issue please share, I am at my wits end.

How do I make it show a map of my route?

I’ve seen people post maps of their workout route or whatever… I guess I’m not sure what to call it.

I’ve tried to figure out how to do it so I can see my path.

I finally got backtrack to even open on my phone but it seems that’s not where.

I want to be able to actually see where I went. Like on a map.

And also if I do a walk in the woods would it even register it? I know I’ve seen people post their runs and stuff but I don’t think I’m smart enough how to figure this stuff out.

Thank you

Reply language changed?

Any reason why my Watch 9 would randomly change its reply language in fitness and FB messenger to Japanese from English? iMessage is still in English though so it’s weird. The only thing I can think of that might be related was I was using Japanese in the translate app on my phone but everything else both phone and watch are set to English.

Oximeter coming back?

With the new WatchOS Vitals feature, they mentioned oxygen levels as measurement for it. Does this mean the next Apple Watch will somehow bring back a way of measuring oxygen levels?

EDIT: To clear things up. I'm not from the US so I know other countries still have it and many people still use old series. But I found it wierd that they mentioned it as if it was not a big deal to their biggest and primary market (the US). So to me, watching them talk about it instead of just talking about other stuf Vitals has, makes me think they might already have a solution for the oximeter for the next model.
