Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming watchOS 9.1 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming one week after Apple released the fourth watchOS 9.1 beta.


To install ‌watchOS 9.1, developers will need to download the configuration profile from the Apple Developer Center. Once installed, ‌watchOS 9.1‌ can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General > Software update. To update to new software, an Apple Watch needs to have 50 percent battery life, it must be placed on the charger, and it needs to be in range of the ‌iPhone‌.

We don't yet know what's included in the watchOS 9.1 update as no new features have been found in the betas, but watchOS 9 brought a number of changes including a redesigned Compass app, a new medication tracking feature, updated watch faces, improvements to Workouts, new features for the ECG app, and more.

Anyone else having issues with ECG skipping and restarting as you hold your finger on the crown? I don't think I'm holding it wrong.
I had that occasionally on my AW6. On my new AWU I have no such problems anymore. Perhaps because it sits better on my wrist.

Nope. I had a fail making a purchase. Then repeated it and it worked fine. No card removing required

I would love the option to use Night Mode on more than just the Wayfinder face on my Ultra. Bring Night Mode to faces on non Ultra Watches as well.
Don't understand the logic in limiting it... There is nothing unique to wayfinder... odd...
