My watch just downloaded an update and is flashing now. No idea what this is. Will post back when it reboots. This isn't a new watch either, have had my watch for months now. Hope this is the expected August update!!

Any settings I can do there ? I tried bluetooth connection via Nexus 5 and WIFI - both do not work with weather app...

AW: 1.3.0.2160025
PlayServices: 7.8.99 (2134222-543)
System 5.1.1

There is also a new watch face called together let's you message other watches I think fails to load for me. Might have to do a factory reset. Also noticed the round corners don't show on everything just some watch faces and apps, also weather isn't working for me.

If ya have the option to update and haven't rebooted yet you should try to pull it for the rest of us. To answer your question though you should just be able to swipe it away and keep doing that if you don't want to update.

How can I STOP this update.? I dont want anything changing on my SW3!

While we wait and hope somebody grabs the link/file, can i ask why you feel so strongly? Given that any time you have to unpair the watch (reset phone, switch phones, etc) you HAVE to factory reset the phone in order for it to connect again. Its not like there is any user data to preserver, so i am curious about what you don't want changed...

Got the update! Had to reset 5 times. Factory reset the watch, forget the watch in the Wear app settings, and clear data of the Wear app in Settings>Apps.

Use the PC companion program on Windows to restore it. Do it quick before Sony updates it with the new firmware!

Did you let it sync apps each time? Or interrupt that while it was syncing apps and check for an update, and then factory reset again?
