Paired with iOS 11.3 beta 1 yesterday is the first watchOS 4.3 beta for Apple Watch. The first developer beta of the upcoming watchOS update comes two days after the release of watchOS 4.2.2 for all customers.
The update is available on the developer center and should be rolling out over-the-air soon. While public beta versions of iOS, tvOS, and macOS will be available, watchOS does not have a public beta program.
watchOS 4.3 features build version 15T5165e. The update comes in at 341MB.
The watchOS 4.3 SDK provides support for developing watchOS apps for watchOS 4.3. The SDK comes bundled with Xcode 9.3 available from the Apple Developer Program download page.
