How to Install WatchOS 2 Beta 1 on your Apple Watch

Today, Apple unveiled watchOS 2, and it’s a major upgrade to the initial version of watchOS. When you think about it, it’s pretty amazing that we’re getting such improved functionality less than 2 months from the debut of Apple Watch.

As you probably know Apple Watch new OS is currently in beta which means only Apple developers can install WatchOS 2 beta 1 on their Apple Watch devices..

The installation is fairly arduous and time-consuming, but it can be done with relative ease if you have the patience. This may be due partly in fact to demand on Apple’s servers so close to the end of the keynote.

Right now I am going to show you how to install WatchOS 2..

STEP 1: Unpair your iPhone and Apple Watch, if you don’t you’ll need to reset your Apple Watch later and repair it. I personally prefer to reset my Apple Watch to defaults anyway. It’s nice to start with a fresh install for a beta.

STEP 2: Download and install the iOS 9 beta on your iPhone from the Apple Developer portal.
