    So far so good. Battery life may be a little worse than beta 5, but it installed 100% properly this time ha ha.

    So far battery seems fine on mine. No issues other than the install taking forever.

    The update didn’t take as long as it typically does, but it is still too long for my liking........Still, my Watch is functioning properly so I’m grateful for that...

    You can’t, simply for the reason that there isn’t one.
    You will have to install developer beta.

    This makes no sense whatsoever and is rather Dissapointing.

    The only way to restore/downgrade from an Apple Watch beta is to take it to an Apple Store, this is why Apple doesn’t want to have a public beta.

    It makes sense to me. To date, once you update watchOS, there's no going back to the previous version using iTunes like you can with your iOS device. You have to take it to Apple and let them do it, and it may take some time. I'd argue that a majority of people wouldn't have the patience or temperament to deal with issues that may arise from the use of the public beta, and they're not going to be happy about having to be without their Apple Watch for a time while Apple restores it for them. Still, that's just my opinion.
