Anyone still having issues with their Apple Watch not charging with OEM/3rd party chargers with Beta 2?

My gf’s Apple Watch Series 5 seems to still be having issues charging with a 3rd party Apple Watch charger. It starts charging and then after about 10-15 seconds it stops.

[Request] Does WatchOS 11 show the current unfinished lap time like WatchOS 9 did?

Does WatchOS 11 show the current unfinished lap time before starting a new lap? Could somebody check this for me on the beta? I don't really want to upgrade my watch just to check this. Thanks!

I'll explain in more detail what I am asking:

After the stopwatch has started, when hitting "Lap", then Lap 1 is saved and Lap 2 starts. On watchOS 9, Lap 2 started counting up from 0:00 live, on watchOS 10, Lap 2 is not visible until you hit the "Lap" button again. On iOS, Lap 2 is visible and counts up from 0:00 as it should be.

Watch faces not syncing from phone to Ultra

iOS18.2 on 15 with Ultra on Beta 11.2. Rearranging apps works but if I try to add a watch face or set as current watch face, nothing happens. On the old watch faces are actually on the watch face even after a wipe and restore. Some complications are broken and they can’t be reconnected since all are not available. But no option to swap widget directly on watch either.

Beta OS auto detecting naps but doesn't show sleep stages

Latest beta, if sleep mode is turned on then the stages are generated. Without manually turning on sleep mode, it's auto detecting sleep but ain't showing sleep stages

AOD not always on anymore?

Having a weird issue that I am not seeing posted about. My AW7 on the latest 11 beta 2 is no longer displaying anything on the watch face unless I tap on the screen or press the crown. It will even vibrate to let me know I have a notification but I cannot see it until I click on the screen. I have tried rebooting it and still having the issue. I have also tried turning AOD off and then back on and that also did not fix it.

Vitals knew I was getting sick before I felt anything(!!!)

Basically the title. I got an alert that I had multiple outliers an hour or so before developing symptoms (norovirus 🥲), I didn’t think anything of it until I started to feel really sick.

I just wanted to share since I didn’t really think anything of the new Vitals feature when they announced it, but it wound up being incredibly useful, especially since I was able to show my doctor the variance compared to normal—she was quite impressed :)

New sound detection alerts -UW1

Woke up this morning and after I washed my hands, my watch told me that it heard what it believed to be running water. This is new, correct?

How’s the latest beta on Apple Watch SE?

I’m on iOS 18 B2 on my phone and thinking about running the beta on my watch too. How’s it going for any SE users?

WatchOS Beta 2 - New widgets!

Hey everyone!

Don't know if someone already covered this, but almost all complications got a makeover in this beta.

Some of the actual new ones (middle one in Modular Watchface):

  • Messages
  • Music
  • Remote
  • Podcasts
  • Now playing

Besides that, all other apps got a major makeover to fit into new design language for complications!

I would post screenshots, but there are literally so many apps right now to cover.

Why can’t I download the OS11 Beta?

I am on the 10 DevBeta and downloaded that just fine. Why I can’t download 11? This is an SE Gen 2, I believe.

How do paused rings look on complications and the calendar view?

And if you pause your rings, does the Health app still track your calories and exercise minutes? Do your activity trends pause as well?

Battery drain bug is fixed with beta 2!

Updated my awu 2 last night, charged it to 100% this morning and after 6 hours of normal usage it is down 10% which is completely fine for me. Just wanted to let you guys know since I read a lot of posts regarding this problem.

How is Google Maps integration with WO11?

Just today for the first time ever GMaps asked me for permission to display a Live Activity and I currently have it on my iPhone lockscreen when I start navigation.

IIRC new watchOS also introduces Live Activity support. Does it mean now we finally get better Google Maps support? Have you noticed any changes?

First Vitals Outlier

I’ve been unwell for a few days, and last night I registered an “Outlier” on my sleeping respiratory rate. Interesting, but not very actionable or prescient.

Check in notification?

Check in notification

Hi everybody

Does everybody knows if we can get check-in notification automatically?

I mean, is it possible to get a reminder to send a check in when we leave the office or when we leave at home ?

It seems to work on the Apple Watch latest beta better I never see this function on the iPhone

Did I miss something?

Thanks for your help
