    Is if possible to DFU restore the phone to install latest beta, but do a restore of a watch backup ?

    I believe the watch backup is part of the iPhone backup. So if you have an iTunes backup of your phone I believe you could:

    - DFU restore iOS
    - Restore iPhone backup
    - Restore watch backup (contained in iPhone backup)

    It will no revert the watchOS version of your watch tho. You will possibly have to re-pair your watch.

    If you want to keep health data, ensure your iTunes backup is encrypted
