Apple has released the watchOS 5.0.1 software update and it is now available for download. The update is available for all models of Apple Watch that work with watchOS 5 including Series 1, Series 2, Series 3 and newly released Series 4.
With the software update Apple has brought the bug fix for the Activity Rings bug that was introduced in watchOS 5.0. After the update many users reported the bug that was causing incorrect increase in exercise minutes. That wasn’t the only fitness related bug found in watchOS 5.0 as many users also reported that their Watch wasn’t tracking the standing minutes correctly during the afternoon time. After updating to watchOS 5.0.1 users should no longer face these issues with their Apple Watch.
The update also fixes the issue that ‘could prevent Apple Watch from charing’. You can download the watchOS 5.0.1 update on your Apple Watch over-the-air by going to the Watch app on your iPhone. Then go to My Watch > General > Software Update.
