New version of watchOS available for download v5.0.1

A few hours ago Apple officially launched a new version of watchOS for Apple Watch users. In this case it is the version 5.0.1 and in it some improvements and bug fixes are added to the system.

For now, one of the main reasons why this new version of watchOS has been launched is that the activity rings and specifically the exercise ring, it was failing. It seems that the accounts did not go well and in the end this update had to be released a few days after the official launch of watchOS. 

The Exercise ring counted more account activity

It seems that one of the main reasons this version has been released is that some users had noticed an increase in exercise minutes without actually doing it. This has led Apple to launch the new version that is already available to all users Who have an Apple Watch Series 1, Series 2, Series 3 and of course the new Series 4 model.

It even seems that in this version it is used to correct some small errors of the new version, so it is advisable if you have one of these Apple Watch is that you update as soon as possible. To do this we simply have to access the iPhone Watch application, click on General and then on Software Update. This update takes a long time to install according to some users, so do not be in a hurry when installing it on your watch.
