This new update is garbage, greatly reduced my battery life, wifi off, cloud sync off, minimal apps installed.

After trying it out it seems like Sony updated the companion app with 5.1 aswell. From here im not sure how to roll back.

I'm not sure you can.
If fact if you could I suspect OTA would update without asking you.... The update before the last one did for me.. I had it on charge looked over to it and it was rebooting after installing the update. No warning, No questions... just did it.

So I wondered this at the last update--from v4 to v5--and after much research, AndroidWear is very much like any Android rom on a phone or tablet. Officially, going backwards in an update is impossible using the stock recovery because each OTA only allows for an update from x version to y version and will error if you try to update from w version. The only way to get backwards is to unlock the bootloader, replace the recovery with something like TWRP and flash an old image. Among many problems that you might experience though is that OTAs are not system images in that they sometimes they only update specific partitions. In short, you run the risk of bricking your watch, just as you could with a phone or tablet.

If you can live with it, keep it. If you can't, start doing your research.
