    Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming watchOS 4.3.2 update to developers, two weeks after seeding the first watchOS 4.3.2 beta and two weeks after releasing watchOS 4.3.1, a minor bug fix update that addressed a startup issue.

    Once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Apple Developer Center, the new watchOS beta can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software update.

    To install the update, the Apple Watch needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it has to be in range of the iPhone.

    No new features were discovered in the first watch watchOS 4.3.2 update, but as a 4.3.x update, it's likely to be minor in scale, addressing bug fixes discovered since the release of watchOS 4.3.1 and making other small improvements to the operating system.

    watchOS 4.3.2 is likely to be one of the final updates to the watchOS 4 operating system. Apple has begun work on watchOS 5, which was provided to developers at the 2018 Worldwide Developers Conference.

    It appears that nobody cares: we’ve all moved on to WatchOS5 Beta.

    I just upgraded from a 42mm Stainless Steel Series 0 to the equivalent Series 3 and have been amazed at the improvement in battery life. After wearing the new watch all day it's still at 75% or more of full charge.

    Oh I’m ready to upgrade! I’m just holding off seeing what September has to offer. I keep my watch on Theatremode and finish the day at around 40%. Not bad for a launch day series 0 in my opinion.

    Mine (42mm S0) is at 73% after about 9 hours. I only use it to read notifications, check time and weather, and read subject lines of emails from contacts set as “VIPs”, though. I also set it to manually install apps. I don’t need all my iPhone apps (that have Watch equivalents) on my watch. So, that may have a lot to do with it.

    Anyway, I’m also waiting for the next Watch, whenever it’s released.

    Also, I’m not sure if it’s a bug with the app I use or not, but the battery in it still shows full capacity (300 mAh.) I’m reluctant to believe the app, though, because I’ve had the watch for over three years now, and it gets charged every night when I go to bed. So, the battery has been used heavily enough that I’d expect it to have lost at least some capacity by now.

    Glad I don’t have one of those $10,000+ Watch Edition S0 units. I’d be annoyed with the drop of support for it in WatchOS 5, no matter how rich I was ... It’s gotta sting at least a little bit.
