Apple Seeds Second Beta of watchOS 3.2.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming watchOS 3.2.2 update to developers for testing purposes, nearly two weeks after seeding the first watchOS 3.2.2 beta and two weeks after the release of watchOS 3.2, which introduced Theater Mode.

The second beta of watchOS 3.2.2 can be downloaded through the Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General --> Software Update. To install the update, the Apple Watch must have 50 percent battery, it must be placed on the charger, and it must be in range of the iPhone.


watchOS betas require an iPhone running iOS 10 to install, and they're only available to developers because there's no way to downgrade the software on an Apple Watch.

It's not yet clear if watchOS 3.2.2 introduces any new features or bug fixes because Apple doesn't typically provide release notes for betas.

Given that this is a minor 3.x.x update, it's likely to focus primarily on bug fixes. No notable features were found in the first watchOS 3.2.2 update, but we'll update this post should anything new be discovered.

Yup, I was hesitant to purchase originally, thinking perhaps I should way for version 2. Considering how it took 1.5 years for an upgrade and my series 0 is still in amazing condition and working way better than when I got it almost 2 years ago... definitely happy with my choice.

It is quite incredible how much better the series 0 is today than it was at launch.

the only thing I find annoying is the phone unlocking randomly without having to enter a passcode

Does this fix the dock bug? Instead of going back to the previous app used in the dock, it goes to the previous app used overall? Its hard to explain.

This beta version has a few more glitches than the first.... One of them is taking phone calls while connected to the bluetooth headset (and the calls route to the wrong device (IE: my phone instead of headset).

Providing feedback to Apple. Anyone else experiencing this?


That happens with my phone frequently - but since I have the intel Modem - I think it's a problem with the modem and BT. Not sure at all if this response is valid for your question but since series 0, 1, and 2 phone calls are routed through and to the iPhone, it could be. I frequently have learned to go to Setting, BT and turn it on again for the BT headset I want to use.
