Hi,

I have just installed 4.8.1 to my watch, very excited to test it, especially improvements regarding iPhone 7 BT connections - so far so good :) Will let you know of y observations after a couple of days.

Is there suppose to be new version of iOS beta app on https://fir.im/93r7 ? Because I can see same version of the app as for firmware 4.8.0.

Keep the good work.

BR

Hi, I have also been having an issue since getting the watch where the contact name does not display on the watch when I am receiving a call, it only shows the mobile number on the screen so I always have to check my watch to see who it is. It shows the contact names in the dialer app on the watch though but not when receiving a call, a fix to this would be great.
