Apple Watch gets its first software update

Apple has released the first update for its Watch to address performance issues and support seven new languages.

The Apple Watch went on sale last month and the company has already issued a software update for the operating system powering the device to improve performance of certain applications, display new Emoji and support new languages.

It is unlikely for a software update to fix the recently discovered problem faced by tattooed Watch users, but most other issues seem to be fixed in this update by Apple for now.

According to the changelog, the following features have been implemented in the version 1.0.1 of Watch OS:

Improved performance for:


Measuring stand activity

Calculating calories for indoor cycling and rowing workouts

Distance and pace during outdoor walk and run workouts


Third party apps

Display support for new Emoji characters Additional language support for:

Brazilian Portuguese







The 51.6 MB update is already rolling out but in order to install, users need to use the Apple Watch app on their iPhone and follow the instructions.
