    I've signed up for the public beta program for iOS 9 and El Capitan, which I think goes live in July.

    What I am wondering is does this mean I will be able to install watchOS 2 on my Apple watch? I know there isn't a public beta for it (yet) but could I install the developers beta? I'm not even thinking of attempting to install any of the betas right now since I am not a dev, but I would like to get my hands on the new watchOS as soon as possible. It looks exactly like what the watch should have been from the start.

    Not necessary. However, if you decide to get WatchOS 2 beta, there isn't a way to downgrade (at least right now)
    So if for any reason your WatchOS 2 bricks your watch, you're stuck until a new beta comes out. Also, if for any reason you decide to go back to iOS 8, your watch won't sync anymore. I would only mess with iOS but keep WatchOS on 1.0.1 until the GM version comes out. (or at least a way more stable, latter released beta)

    Sorry what isn't necessary?

    I'm definitely gonna wait until later on when the betas are more stable.
