Alongside today's release of iOS 9.1 to the public, Apple decided to release watchOS 2.0.1 for the Apple Watch. This update most notably adds support for the 150 new emoji, which came packed with the iOS 9.1 update.

Apart for emoji support, watchOS 2.0.1 also adds battery improvements and several much needed bug fixes. Here is a full change log for watchOS 2.0.1:

  • Fixes an issue that could cause software updates to stall
  • Fixes issues that were impacting battery performance
  • Resolves an issue that prevented a managed iPhone from syncing iOS Calendar events to Apple Watch
  • Addresses an issue that could prevent location information from properly updating
  • Fixes an issue that could cause Digital Touch to send from an email address instead of a phone number
  • Addresses an issue that could cause instability when using a Live Photo as a watch face
  • Resolves an issue that allows the sensors to stay on indefinitely when using Siri to measure heart rate
watchOS 2.0.1 can now be installed through the Watch app on iPhone. The iPhone must be connected to WiFi, connected to the charger, and both devices must have at least 50% battery.
