The worst update so far, my Apple Watch is draining the battery so fast. In the previous version, the battery of my watch lasted at least a whole day

Loads of Bugs 10.5 Beta

Anyone else found that the latest release of WatchOS is full of bugs? Neither of my weather apps work on my watch, apples and AccuWeather. Won’t search for updates as it states “not connect to internet”, and battery life in 10.5 has been so bad on my Ultra.

10.5 Beta This song is currently unavailable

Randomly, my watch started showing this message. It keeps reappearing immediately after dismissing it either by tapping ok, the side button, or the crown. I had no music playing at the time.

It happened once so far. A reboot fixed it.

Siri on device - Other languages

Wondering how they develop this - still waiting for French to be developed on AW2. Is this the kind of feature they usually put in the general beta/release notes? Or is just need to wait and check at every major .X release?

watchOS 10.4 (21T216) music woes

My watch is on 10.4, build # 21T216. I re-paired the watch because I was unable to sync a certain album -music app has been having issue since, well always ;-/.

I added some albums last night, that immediately dissappeard from the “Playlists & Albums in the watch.app… and they did not.

Any ideas? Thanks

(wasn’t sure to post here or in the iOS Beta sub)

App notification settings

So, I was looking at my app settings on my Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) and noticed that there are no longer settings to customize the notifications for apps. Was this always a thing? Or is this new? Also, if I shut off the mirror iPhone slider, does it turn off the notifications for that app altogether, or does the watch just push notifications on its own?

I am on the latest version of Watch OS 10.4 beta 4

Playlist/Music Issue

With each of the past few Beta updates, a decent amount of my downloaded music on the watch has been deleted and doesn't attempt to re-add.

I have a playlist that I use to organize/add new music and the recent updates remove about 90% of a few hundred songs, while showing as it is complete in the music screen of the watch app. Has anybody else experienced this? Thanks.

Edit: I am able to load the individual albums from the playlist separately to the watch, weird.

Handwashing timer broken?

Just as the title says, mine is now broken on b4 U2. Worked just fine on the previous one but now just won’t pop up at all for me. Anyone else noticing this as well?

Apple Pay double button click stopped working

Since last update to 10.4 the double button press for Apple Pay stopped working. Did a reset and Reinstall. Did not help. Had to revert to earlier backup and It worked again. Anybody else with this issue or know how to fix this?

Noticed what I think may be a new feature on the latest beta

Today while running I noticed when double clicking the crown to get the app switcher, it would auto select the app in the foreground to go back into the app. I tend to switch between my audiobook app and WorkOutDoors while running so losing this feature when OS10 came out was a bummer. Checked the accessibility settings and looks like they brought app switching back in this form. Very happy with it.

10.3 RC. Heart rate dropping out during workouts

On 10.3 RC with my U2. Heart rate has multiple gaps when working out. It’ll just gray out for several minutes. It’s not due to sweat or band tightness. I’ve not changed any of my workout habits, and it’s never been like this until the most recent update. Anyone else seeing this?

Handwashing inconsistent?

I use the handwashing timer, have used it for a while and find it useful.

I’ve noticed it sometimes does not turn on until I’m done washing, when it shows the final success animation. Other times, it works correctly and shows the full countdown.

Of course, the full countdown is helpful and desired. When it does not come on, I just keep washing wonder if I’ll be standing there washing in 10 minutes waiting for me to tell me time’s up 😅

Anyone else experience this? AW Ultra on latest 10.3 beta.
