Apple today seeded the fifth beta of an upcoming watchOS 6.2.5 update to developers, one week after releasing the fourth beta and over a month after releasing the watchOS 6.2 update that added in-app purchases to the Apple Watch App Store.

watchOS 6.2.5 can be downloaded for free through the dedicated ‌‌Apple Watch‌‌ app on the iPhone by going to General > Software Update. To install the new software, the ‌‌Apple Watch‌‌ needs to have at least 50 percent battery, it needs to be placed on a charger, and it needs to be in range of the ‌‌‌iPhone‌‌‌.

watchOS 6.2.5 brings ECG functionality and irregular heart rhythm notifications to Saudi Arabia. Nothing else new was discovered in the first four betas, suggesting that other than the new ECG feature, watchOS 6.2.5 focuses on under-the-hood improvements.

A watch beta with nothing else? This. This shows how much chaos is going on at Apple right now.
Tough crowd, they are tightening up the contact tracing, which is a good thing. I only have a minor mail refresh issue n 13.5.

To clarify it wasn't a stab at Apple persay. More that the contact tracing has them in more dissaray than usual. Betas usually are somewhat in sync and come out in groups. I can only imagine them all trying to coordinate from home.


Just like the last several betas. Doubt there will be anything new until WatchOS 7.
Agreed it was more for the fact that a watch beta popped up out of the blue on a Thursday with nothing else.
