Apple Seeds First Beta of watchOS 9.2 to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming watchOS 9.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming just one day after the launch of watchOS 9.1.

watchOS 9 Feature
To install the new ‌watchOS 9.2 update, developers will need to download the configuration profile from the Apple Developer Center.

Once installed, ‌watchOS 9.2‌ can be downloaded through the dedicated Apple Watch app on the iPhone by going to General > Software update. To update to new software, an Apple Watch needs to have 50 percent battery life, it has to be placed on the charger, and it will need to be in range of the ‌‌iPhone‌‌ it is paired with.

We don't yet know what's included in the watchOS 9.2 update, but watchOS 9.1 brought battery life improvements, Matter support, and various bug fixes.

We'll update this article if anything notable is found in the watchOS 9.2 update.

Can we get nap detection?
And perhaps more advanced sleep features such an auto sleep detection rather than it being based off of the focus mode you're in?
These features would be really nice.

I would love to see "track detection" and "international roaming" :). For those who have beta access, does the profile indicate anything about track detection and international roaming? I'd love to know :)
Still can’t understand why roaming is not working/enabled.

watchOS 9.1 has issues with music management.

The iPhone watch app > music > has no music listed.

The iPhone watch app > about > songs has songs listed (432 in my case).

The watch itself has previously “installed” music but no music can be added or removed.

9.1 (20S75)

iOS 16.1 (20B82)

Someone on Reddit reports that international roaming is now working. See: [MEDIA=reddit]AppleWatch/comments/ybjtbv/_/itsg370[/MEDIA]

I wish I had that feature when I was in Canada which was just recently. It would have been awesome. Had a great time visiting too ;-) :)
Just checken in my watch. No roaming here, just two options: mobile service and mobile data.
Maybe it is a US/Canada exclusive? I’m located in the Netherlands
