Which watch do you have the original, Series 1 or Series 2?

Austin Lewis Apple does not let you downgrade your watchOS. You will have to contact Apple for that. They do want your watch for a couple of days to take care of that.

@oldturkey03 - With release of iOS 11 WatchOS 4 was also released. I'm running it on my watch now.

Series 1 & 2 leverage Bluetooth and only fails over to WiFi when the connection is lost between the mated iPhone needs to support handoff for this to work. The original Apple Watch only uses Bluetooth.

The only benefit is streaming music or a data service (i.e. following a stock) to get a notification of a change.
