AppleCare process for downgrading WatchOS

A recent post at 9to5Mac claims that when Apple released the first beta of watchOS 2.0 last month following WWDC, users were surprised to learn that there was no way to downgrade from the beta build to the more stable Watch OS 1.0.1.

Clearly this would mean record sales even for Apple however if the devices are as amazing as expected it's not an absolutely unreasonable possibility. Videos have surfaced over the past few months which depict the phone in various guises however we believe it will not be far too diffrerent from its predecessor the iPhone 5.
