anybody got issues w Bluetooth connection?

mine dropped randomly and sometimes I don't even know the watch is not paired w the phone until I check the missed calls or notifications on my iPhone.
If your watch is not connected, there's a symbol of a phone with a slash across in red to indicate that. So far mine has no issues.

Did you update to 2.0.1 yet?

Strange as I never experienced that whether on 1.0.1 or 2.0.1.

Can anyone modify the default messages to work on whatsapp? I set it using the Apple Watch app on iPhone but it is still showing the defaults on Apple Watch when I hit reply for whatsapp.

only happened initially...
and usually off and on both devices solves 90% of all known issues.

now, if my 6S in dock, i go toilet with AW in hand,
AW will show the red icon when i am peeing, then come back to desk, the red icon will be gone (aka, auto re connect already)

On the topic on whatsapp, I do get notifications on whatsapp, however when i reply to my group chats on whatsapp via the AW, the reply wouldn't be send over, but when i reply to the individual chats on whatsapp via the AW, the reply gets send over. Anyone experiencing the same problem? Thanks!

anyone tried running runkeeper and activity app at the same time on apple watch for a run.

my observation, the app that is in the background will not track anything.
e.g. i start runkeeper follow by activity app, activity app will get al the stats wheresle when runkeeper will revert to startup mode..

same as the reverse order for activity app then runkeeper, runkeepr will have stats and activity none.

Just like to check do you all use the wake screen on wrist raise function? For myself, I do initially have the function on but realised that it drains the battery quite fast. When I'm on my keyboard, the screen wakes itself up many a times due to the position of my wrist.

Cheers!

I'm not bothered by that as it's supposed to function as it is and also not bothered by batt life as it's a smartwatch anyway.

That being said, I just received a Milanese Loop strap from my wife for Christmas present and upcoming 1st-year wedding anniversary.
