    It's out!

    It's got new stuff. Probably.

    It does more things. Probably.

    You can get it now. Definitely.

    My Series 3 was at least one update behind, since it couldn't handle all 2.5gb of the last update without a full reset.

    WatchOS 8 came in at 1Gb and installed without a reset, so I'm happy with that. I have no idea what changes it brings.

    The watch can handle multiple countdown timers now.

    A lot of nice additions, nothing earth shattering. Timer management is something I use every day for cooking and having the ability to quickly edit and have multiple timers is welcome.

    The UI around messaging and replying in general is much improved.

    Multiple timers is great.

    Moving the pre-set 1/3/5/10 timers under the 'recent' timers is infuriating. As is the fact that custom timers now get overwritten by the recent timers if you use a pre-set timer.

    There are some changes in these updates that just feel like Apple are trolling.

    Think I've found a bug.

    Press the Digital Crown, go to Timers.

    I can scroll up and down using the screen and my finger but I can't scroll up and down using the Digital Crown.

    Can anyone else reproduce this?

    /edit - Restarting the watch fixed it.
