watchOS 7 beta 3 can be downloaded on your Apple Watch after you have installed the appropriate configuration profile from Apple's Public Beta website. Take note that since it is still a beta, you should not install it on your primary device. Moreover, you can not downgrade it to watchOS 6, so do proceed with precaution.

There is also a new Chronograph Pro watch face with tachymeter, complication updates, new work out options, and a renamed Fitness app which was previously called the Activity app. The Maps app now also supports directions for cyclists, spoken translations from Siri, and a new Shortcuts app for the Apple Watch.
