Decoupled my Apple Watch to update the Watch OS and that's where the trouble began

The Apple Watch 3 will not update to the latest Watch OS. It downloaded a few MB and stopped. I have tried to download several times and no further progress. Now I cannot couple the watch with mu XS Max manually or the view through camera lens "automagic" coupling.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.

My series 3 got stuck in a half-updated state a while ago. I remember that I had to do a full reset (factory) on the watch then start the full process from scratch.

Don't know if it will fix yours but worked for me.

-Head to Settings on your Apple Watch
-Tap General
-Swipe down to the bottom and tap Reset
-Tap Erase All Content and Settings
-If you’re using a passcode, enter it when prompted
-Swipe down and choose Erase All or Erase All & Keep Plan if you have a cellular watch

I decided to just keep my Series 3 watch at WatchOS 7.4.1 because of the hassle it took to get to 7.4.

I'm not sure how it happened, but it was able to update itself to 7.4.1 all by itself.

I'm hoping to see some good deals on a Series 6 when the Series 7 is released, unless the Series 7 has the "make it snow now" weather modification feature.

We solved wife's AW 3 update problem. We upgraded her watch to the SE. Problem solved!
