    After I download the updates to my iPhone and IPad, I did the apple watch late last night- it took over 2 hours to update the watch. Plan according.

      The watch updates and pairing are always much slower than I would expect… but I guess to transfer and install a large OS update safely while preventing bricking the device without an external data connection – they need to take their time.
