The Apple Watch 1.0.1 update rocks, here's how to install it

The Apple Watch 1.0.1 update rocks, here's how to install it
The Apple Watch got a much welcome firmware update to version 1.0.1. We haven't gotten ours just yet, but users are reporting improved app loading times, faster data display in native and third-party apps, as well as smoother and more responsive swipes. 

To top it all off, Apple has made Siri reply faster and more accurately to your queries, tweaked stand activity to take more accurate measurements, adjusted calorie tracking, improved distance and pace data measurements, and stabilized third-party apps. Animated watch faces load faster, too, and more emojis are available

If you are an Apple Watch owner, you surely don't want to miss out on this goodness, do you? Don't worry, in this tutorial, we'll show you how to do it.

I understand your frustration. This is what we call inferiority feeling of a Samsung user (Samsung for me means all Android smartphone since there is no difference between them).

You should write to all the tech reviewers and let them know about this phenomenon. They clearly aren't aware of it, since the overwhelming majority of them rated both the Note 4 and the S6 as better than the iPhone 6/6+. They'll be relieved to hear it, and adjust their reviews accordingly.

It's funny to see read your comments. Reminds me of chubby little Billy who complains how bad team X is cus he can't beat them. If he does beat them, he doesn't say anything xD

dont worry of what others say. to them samsung invented the first smart watch in 1999 or so. theyre still stuck back in the day. out of all smart watches, reviews ive seen, apple takes it, its worth it, its for your own good. health monitoring wise, reminding you to do things and so much more.

This is surprising as, all credit to apple, they usually optimize their systems very well. However, when it comes to the apple watch, it appears this hasn't been the case. It makes the product seem very rushed. They should have taken more care really.

Hopefully Apple will give you a job since you have brilliant ideas!!!!!

It is a new product segment to them. They had to design a custom version of iOS for the Watch and the little quarks I was hearing about upon initial release have been addressed with the update according to my friend, Ryan. As soon as I heard about the update I got his feedback since he is a huge techie. His GF got him one and he has been overall happy with it despite the little things. In other words, Android Wear has had a head start on the market, but it also was not perfect at release. This coming from a company like Google that also has high standards in terms of making an OS with their services. Despite this though, I would still wait till the second iteration before purchasing one. I wouldn't complain if I got it for a gift, but I would rather wait on it in terms of my money.

The only Smartwatch that doesn't suck is the Pebble.

Why do you like the pebbles so much? I hate them, 2 of ny friends have them. They look so cheap and lack so much functionality.. let's not forget that horrible screen.. even the new one that has a 12 bit screen eww. Granted the battery life would be good but i get 2 days watch always on out of my gear S and he gets a few more but everyone just charges their stuff at the end of the day anyway.. unless you like to have your watch on literally 24-7, even sleep with it..

Yep, that is how awesome the Apple Watch is but you cannot change the fact that it is still half baked but. I would give a thumbs up personally to Tim Cook for this :D

Woah good old iphonearena is her just in time. Release one article with the title heading that Androidwear is evil. Immediately followed by a heading that says the OS on Apple watch rocks because of a extremely minor update...

Hey it's not minor, it adds a .23423233 second speedup!

Nobody asks you to read their articles, troll. Go to AndroidAuthority and join your people.
