    Hi guys

    I'm running on my iPhone 6 iOS Public beta 2. Can I install on my I watch the iOS 2 beta 4? If yes where can I download it and how to install it?

    Hmmm so should I install the Developer version on my iPhone and then get it on the watch as well?

    No, you should wait unless you ARE a developer and have a spare :apple:Watch to instal on.

    I'm not linking you to anything, but it's easy to lookup this information online. Although you can't downgrade your Apple Watch once you install it, but most of the bugs have been fixed.

    Yes. I'm not a Dev and I have the public beta on my phone with watchOS 2 on my watch. The battery life is terrible, but whatever.

    Not worth it man. There's not much new stuff to take advantage of until the final version is released and third party apps are updated. Also, the pairing process is too unreliable. Bricked a watch just updating from beta 3 to beta 4. I definitely recommend waiting but if you want to proceed, it's easy to find the info online.

    A few things to consider Anthony:

    - Once you upgrade to WatchOS 2.0 you cannot go back to 1.0.1.
    - WatchOS 2.0 requires iOS 9 in order to pair and function so for whatever reason you don't like iOS 9 you're stuck with it.
    - No apps will run locally on the watch yet (aside from stock apple apps) because apps will not be updated on the app store until watch 2.0 is public.

    So for a change it really is pointless for non developers to upgrade as you don't actually benefit from any real updates

    I took my watch off the charger at 7am yesterday and it still had 30% at 1am last night.

    Im getting good battery life on mine, but only if I disable the location based weather app default with a fixed city one.

    Regards

    Be careful what you wish for. The beta thing can be a real nightmare if you do it to a device you depend on. Not me, never again!

    And you're on the latest beta? I don't have any features turned off and I used the workout app for an hour yesterday. It's actually the best battery life I've ever had.

    Given your example my watch on 1.0.1 would be at 30% battery the following afternoon around 2pm.

    If you have to ask, the answer is no.

    Unless you don't depend on your Watch or iPhone to work correctly and don't need them for emergencies or any important family/business/etc... then good luck!

    I did this yesterday afternoon and my battery life is a lot better now. I wish there was a quick fix for the brightness bug.
