    So I have 9.2 on my iPhone 6S Plus and I plan on updating my Watch to Watch OS 2.2, can I do that without updating my phone to 9.3?

    Thanks

    From what I read, the answer is no. You need the 9.3 dev beta and not the public beta to even get the watch in a position to update to 2.2. If you have the developer beta for 9.3, you can then put the proper profile on the watch to see the beta for 2.2.

    Yea, I shouldn't say for certain it doesn't work with both the public and dev versions of 9.3 unless it was tested and installed by others. I have 9.3 version 13E5181f and if I install the WatchOS beta configuration profile, I can upgrade to 2.2 beta 1 if I want. I just don't want to bust it :)

    Do you use all three? Any feature worth it in the new beta for the watch?

    I do yes. Not all at once :) The changes other than being able to pair multiple watches are pretty small as far as I can tell. I wouldn't say its worth the risk unless you are really into having the latest.

    • Sport for those exercise days
    • SS for the office dress code days
    • Edition for the days you want to look like a douchebag

    Not really ... Not even close. I'm a watch guy and has been a long time before I had the Apple watch.. But I haven't had three exact same model watches, only separated by the color.

    And it wasn't supposed to be a criticism - taste and choice in watches it as personal as it gets, so if it's your style go for it :)

    I did decide to upgrade to 2.2 beta 1 and there is no significant improvement or any issues either. I think a new feature is the rings actually show the names of each ring on the watch. As least I don't recall that before.
