The watchOS 10.4 software update brings with it a handful of other improvements including a fix for a bug that caused some contacts not to sync to Apple Watches for some users.

As for new features, Apple says that the Tap to Show Full Notification setting now allows users to double tap toe expand the notification. Another addition is the fact that using Apple Pay with Comfirm with AssistiveTouch will now require that a passcode be entered for additional security, not just double-clicking the Side button.
