    Fire up your Software Updates! watchOS 7 is now available.

    Wasting so much time now playing around with the new Watch faces.

    The handwashing detection of watchOS 7 isn't consistent. Sometimes it detects me washing when I'm about done, sometimes not at all. I just turned it off all together. Was more of a novelty than a productivity feature really.

    Mine works like 95% of the time. Definitely not made for people who manually wash dishes though! Apple probably thinks I’m washing my hands for like 10x in a span of 20mins whenever I’m doing the dishes. Hahahaha

    Handwashing is dependent more on how close it is to and how loud the running water sound is. I usually trigger it during handwashing and dishwashing like @Aargh. I intentionally tried to minimize the flow and sound of running water, which did not trigger the handwashing timer.

    Lost viber on my apple watch after updating. Reinstalling viber on the phone did not solve it. Is there someone else experiencing this

    Same, I did lose Viber as well.

    Funny thing, when it activates during dishwashing it counts down while I'm rinsing the dishes. :ROFLMAO:

    I wont be buying any apple watch for the meantime. True, there are many new features, but almost all are not available in the Philippines.

    Mm....only ECG remains to be activated (the new pulse oximeter/ VO whatever is available). As announced a long time ago, Apple is working with individual regulatory bodies worldwide for approved local use. Maybe our FDA is a slow-poke, typical PH bureaucracy that requires a thousand signatures on an index card before anything gets approved. Also, slow -poke duopoly that takes slow- motion action before making eSIM widely available. Not Apple’s fault.
