watchOS 4.0.1 update fixes Wi-Fi network connectivity bug for LTE Apple Watch Series 3

The update addresses what could be a security issue because not all public Wi-Fi networks can be trusted. Someone networks could, for example, be traps trying to siphon personal information from your watch or computer.

To install watchOS 4.0.1, launch the Watch app on your iPhone, then go to My Watch > General > Software Update. If the update is available for your Apple Watch it’ll appear there.
