    Seems that the last beta and the release build do have the same build number (13V420).

    So it is not possible to update via the Apple watch app. It is saying that 2.2.1 is already installed.

    I was surprised with that beta being like 6 weeks old that there wasn't a newer version released. And I'll be honest, this version has some issues.

    The difference in speed compared to 2.2 is night and day.

    I actually enjoy using 3rd party apps on my watch now!

    my battery life took a sudden nose dive, took it off the charger around noon, 7.5 hrs later and im at 17%. I used to be able to take it off in the morning and finally need to drop it on the charger on the second evening(not wearing as i slept). I restored as new and didnt install any apps and it really hasnt improved much. Im giving it a couple more days and then im calling apple (nearest store is a few hours away)

    this is first time ive ever had an issue after an update in all my iphones/ipads/macs history. kind of bummed.

    Have you tried rebooting both devices (phone and watch)?

    Well, Wednesday night(around 11pm) I chatted with Apple and tried to run diagnostics, but the watch had stopped communicating with my iPhone. I tried more restores but it just wasn't happening. Had a box in my possession the next day, they got it Friday and sent out a replacement same afternoon and it arrived before lunch today. So I guess there was something actually wrong my Apple Watch Sport.

    Was very impressed and pleased with how quickly and completely Apple remedied my issue.

    I'll have to wait until I get home ... I stopped bringing my Watch charger to work with me. It's kinda ridiculous to require it to be plugged in for a 16MB x.x.2 update.

    The software updates for the Watch come packaged with iOS updates.

    You can only get WatchOS 2.2.2 if you're using iOS 9.3.3.

    Watch OS 3 is not included with the iOS 10 betas. People who are on public beta don't get it. You get it if you have a dev account and by installing the watch configuration profile or by finding the profile in the wild.
