    Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming watchOS 3.2.2 update to developers for testing purposes, one week after seeding the second watchOS 3.2.2 beta and three weeks after the release of watchOS 3.2, which introduced Theater Mode.

    The third beta of watchOS 3.2.2 can be downloaded through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone.


    watchOS betas require an iPhone running iOS 10 to install, and they're only available to developers because there's no way to downgrade the software on an Apple Watch.

    It's not yet clear if watchOS 3.2.2 introduces any new features or bug fixes because Apple doesn't typically provide release notes for betas.

    Given that this is a minor 3.x.x update, it's likely to focus primarily on bug fixes. No notable features were found in the first two watchOS 3.2.2 betas, but we'll update this post should anything new be discovered in the third.

    How about just releasing an update that gives no updates or features but just gives me the stability of watch os2. Frigging with the code and releasing all of these security updates to stop side loading and whatnot are just making it slower. The watch should be fast and stable for a good five years. I'm not running games. I'm using it for telling the time and controlling my audio through Bluetooth. Since I bought the watch os1 (and it worked fine) the new features of watch OS2 such as instantly available apps just aren't there. The watch is considerably slower than at launch. Animated photos run jerkily slow. I'm sorely tempted to just ignore all watch updates until I'm selling it. Stick speed and stability into your beta. Get people to test it and release a watch os3 that people can still use on the first gen watch. Otherwise people aren't going to buy them. Pure and simple.
