The watchOS 2.0.1 update follows last month’s major revamp and arrives promising to squash some of the issues that were causing watch owners to experience diminished battery life.

In the release notes Apple doesn’t go into specifics on what those issues were or how much longer users can expect the watch to last on a single charge.
All Apple does say is there are fixes for “issues that were affecting battery performance,” but, hey, longer battery life!
Elsewhere there are a few security boosts within the 62.8MB update, one of which concerns Apple Pay. Apple says it has taken care of an issue that allowed a “terminal to retrieve limited recent transaction information when making a payment.”
An issue that caused Digital Touch to send from an email address instead of a phone number and a stability issue arriving from using a Live Photo as a watch game has also been fixed.
Apple has also solved a problem that kept the sensors running indefinitely when watch-owners used Siri to measure their heart rate.
The update can be download now from an iPhone running iOS 9.1, using the Apple Watch companion app.
