Apple today released watchOS 2 to the public, making the first major update to the watchOS software available to all Apple Watch owners. The update requires iOS 9 and can be downloaded over-the-air through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update.

The support for native applications is a big deal.

"WatchOS 2 seems to have much better battery life

1. It just came out today. How can anyone know?
2. From what I heard about the betas it is quite the opposite and that makes sense because the watch is now used more. At this moment the Apple Watch seems the most expensive and least battery efficient smartdevice there is. If I go somewhere for a weekend I want my watch to keep working without bringing a charger. My phone does that and so should every other device

Do you have any source for your "MUCH better battery life"?

My source is myself. I've personally been using WatchOS2 since July, and yes the EARLY betas were bad. Beta 4 which I started using in August and the GM which was released to developers on the 6th have been very good. Anyone who has been using it can know fairly easily.
