This year marks the first time Apple has offered a public beta for the latest Apple Watch software. Following the watchOS 7 public beta debut last week, Apple has released beta 2 of the public build today.

If you’re already enrolled in the watchOS 7 public beta, you can find the update by heading to the Watch app on your iPhone > General > Software Update. Keep checking back if you don’t see beta 2 right away as it’s still rolling out to devices.

The public beta 2 for watchOS 7 follows the developer beta 5 being released earlier this week.

watchOS 7 brings notable new features like sleep tracking, watch face sharing, tracking for new types of workouts, hand washing detection, and more.
