    I've already installed developer version of IOS 9 Beta 3 on my iPhone 6 which is working great.

    When I saw that the public beta was available now I went and took a look at what was available and went through the process of registering and clicking on the 'Download Profile' button.

    I was then prompted whether I wanted to install the profile to my iPhone or Watch.

    I'm presuming this is WatchOS beta 3 the same as the developers version and if I install the public beta profile for my watch that is what I will end up with?

    Has anybody tried the WatchOS public beta?

    Haven't installed the beta on the watch yet, it's working great with iOS 9 beta 3 so I will leave it alone for awhile

    I installed the Beta Profile on the my Watch - but going into the watch app on my phone does not show a beta as being available...

    That's strange, perhaps the beta is coming soon for the watch?

    Did it install the same as the previous developer watch OS?

    I don't think there will be a public beta for watchOS, at least not until you can downgrade back to 1.0.1

    Are you currently running the latest developer beta of WatchOS 2?

    i think it give you the option to install the profile where you want and it does not mean it will work for that device.
    you need the watch profile to make the beta appear .
    the ios 9 beta profile is made for the phone not the watch

    but honestly after reading the issue with watch beta 3 .. heart rate not working sometimes etc... I think now im going to stay clear and keep 1.0.1

    Ok. I restored my iPhone to iOS 9 BETA 3 (Developer Version - Build 13A4293f).

    How do I install the Watch Os 2 beta 3 (the only version that exists as you pointed)?

    I'm following the instructions on Apple's developer site, but the Watch app on my iPhone still says that there is no update, even after installing the Beta Profile on my Watch. I saw an earlier post from you and I thought you have run thru the same issue:

    "I installed the Beta Profile on the my Watch - but going into the watch app on my phone does not show a beta as being available..."

    Have you been able to install it?

    Thanks a lot.

    No. I'm not running the developer beta so there are no Watch betas available to me.

    With the very real situation involving watchOS betas not being able to be downgraded (without sending the watch in to Apple), why even chance it?

    I think the profile option is either just a holdover from the DP beta version, or serves to keep everything matched with the official 1.01 and iOS 9 beta.

    Personally, even with the official builds of watchOS, I'll be waiting a few days before upgrading. Apple's recent history of software rollouts hasn't been the smoothest, and having to mail my watch all the way back to the States from Germany - because of a botched installation, game-stopping bugs, etc. and no way to downgrade ourselves - isn't an option.

    I'm sure you'll be able to install it via your iPhone when the official version is released.
