Top 10 things to know about watchOS 2:
1.) Faster native apps:
Apps can now run directly on Apple Watch boosting performance, responsiveness and fluidity; apps can also now take advantage of Watch hardware like the heart rate sensor, accelerometer, microphone, Digital Crown, Taptic Engine, and software including audio and video playback and animation and layout, opening up a world of new possibilities.
2.) Siri does even more:
Now you can ask Siri to start a workout (e.g: “start five mile outdoor run”), ask for transit directions (e.g: “give me transit directions to the Empire State Building”), launch a Glance, (e.g: “open the Starwood Glance”), reply to an email, or make a FaceTime Audio call.

You can now add complications from your favourite apps to any Watch face that supports them; simply go into the My Watch tab in the Watch app on iPhone and select Complications; information will be updated in real-time and tapping on a complication will launch the app. You can see the latest sports scores, news headlines, the time to take your medication, and more.
