After updating my Apple Watch to watchOS 4, my blue standing bars do not show up for my future standing. It would blink, telling me I haven't stand yet. I need to know if I have to stand or not. I hate it when I miss a stand hour :mad:. Thanks!

I just updated when I went to bed last night, I will keep an eye out today as I use the stand reminders quite often too!

Mine are showing up just as they always have. I seem to recall getting a stand up notice yesterday, but it's rare that i see them because Watch got me in to the habit of standing once an hour already :)

did the update - about 2 hours to complete if not longer.
also dislike the new recent app view.. prefer the horizontal view more vs the new vertical..

... When SINC said in another post it took that long on Tuesday I decided to wait until yesterday to try.... when it warned of "About 2 hours.." I just packed it in and called it a night lol

+1.. Agreed. Not that I used the Dock a ton, but will even less now.

So your blue stand bar is not blinking saying you haven't stand?

I actually prefer it, a bit more intuitive to scroll with the crown when it's in the same orientation as the icons.

Had an original Apple Watch on the beta and Iím still not use to the dock. Itís also a slow watch. Have all the activity notifications turned off but the actual blue bars have had no issues.

I also have a sport model that I got through my developer account on day 1 which I havenít updated yet. Iíll get around to updating it at some point and will let you know if I run into issues with the update.

You can still see a preview.. its about half of what is used to be, but its still kind of there.... kind of.

On a positive... I really really like the fact that when I start playing music on my iPhone (which I do every day to and from work in the car), the "Now Playing" app automatically starts on my watch.

Not really on topic but I was looking at the Apple refurb store thinking of maybe going for an Apple Watch 2 refurb assuming they would come down in price. Seems I was way off in my thinking, the refurb Apple Watch 2 is more expensive then a new Apple Watch 3.

Stainless steel model is more valuable than the aluminium case watch.

found that out when I asked apple chat support. It seems Apple is valuing the materials far more then the tech in the watches. Bands from Apple cost a fortune.

Found a couple on Kijiji for around $400+ (Series 2, aluminum casing)... probably still better to get a Series 3 at $469.

I was annoyed by the app running on my iPhone showing on the watch when all I wanted was to see the time. Had to turn that off.

Granted the now playing was useful for now showing but thatís the only one.

Contemplating getting a series 2 to replace an original one. Waiting for kijiji prices to drop.
