Did you update your Apple Watch to watchOS 2.2 yet?

Apple had a bunch of announcements yesterday, some of which flew under the radar. The company released iOS 9.3, updated OS X and also released new software for the Apple TV. Did you know it also updated the Apple Watch? Yep, watchOS 2.2 is now available for you to download.

There are several changes worth discussing though the biggest might be for Apple Maps, which now allows you to use your Apple Watch to search for local points of interest. You’ll no longer need to pull out your phone to find a restaurant or somewhere to shop, for example, and you can easily browse through different POIs right from your wrist.

There’s also the option to pair multiple Apple Watch units with a single iPhone. That’s great for folks who might have one for working out and a more expensive model for work, but it probably won’t affect the majority of Apple Watch owners. Other features include new language support, Siri support for Hebrew, Finnish and Malay and an increase in the frequency of the heart rate monitor measurements while you’re not moving.

You should see the update available in Apple Watch app on your iPhone now.
