Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of watchOS 9.4 to Developers
Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming watchOS 9.4 update to developers for testing purposes, with the software update coming one week after launch of the third beta.
To install the watchOS 9.4 update, developers will need to download the configuration profile from the Apple Developer Center.
Once installed, watchOS 9.4 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.
watchOS 9.4 gains support for new emoji characters that include donkey, goose, black bird, shaking head, hyacinth, pea pod, and more, with 31 new characters available in total.
Through iOS 16.4, the update adds support for Web Push notifications that are sent to an iPhone, with the notifications able to be set up for a website that is added to the iPhone's Home Screen.
watchOS 9.4 will go through a few more rounds of beta testing, and it is expected to see a launch in the spring alongside iOS 16.4.

Then I was diagnosed with a defective mitral valve with severe regurgitation in my late 40's. They put a "clip" on it because I was too sick for open heart surgery at the time. It worked great at first, but its effectiveness has diminished with time and the clock is ticking on a full valve replacement. I'm not really comfortable with exercising the way I did in my 30's and 40's given my heart condition. My job can be physically stressful at times so I get a lot of exercise there. My cardiologist said he was amazed I never had a full blown heart attack doing what I do and exercising at the level I did. And none of the standard heart screens caught it. I had several that were job related over the years and passed every one. He also said I'm healthy enough for the standard robotic valve replacement surgery now. so this thing bought me time to get better.
I'm generally happy with my Ultra. It's my favorite gadget right now. The altimeter is a bit buggy. The battery life isn't as good as I thought it would be, but it's pretty good. It was spendy, but I think it was worth the money over the regular watch. If you have a big enough wrist.
