For Apple Watch owners who8217;d avoided the 5.1 update, watchOS 5.1.1 delivers the new features promised all along. Those include new solid colour watch faces, Group FaceTime (audio only) and a host of new emoji options.
However, unfortunately, those who were affected by the bug won8217;t just be able to install watchOS 5.1.1 and get on with life. They8217;re still being advised to contact Apple Support for a remedy.

When acknowledging the issue, Apple said: “Due to a small number of Apple Watch customers experiencing an issue while installing WatchOS 5.1 today, we’ve pulled back the software update as a precaution.
The latest generation Apple Watch introduces a number of potentially life-saving tools, such as fall detection, an ECG and notifications when the heartbeat become irregular. It also offers a larger display, making room for more complex watch faces, and a sleeker overall design.
However, there8217;s no real boost to the battery life, no always-on display and no native sleep tracking. Still, our mobile editor Max Parker says it8217;s the best smartwatch yet.
