You have to download and install every subsequent update that follows until you are back on the public version of the software, which is going to be the final version of watchOS 6.2.5 beta. Is that clear? Let's move forward then.

Once the download is complete, you'll here a ding chime from your Apple Watch after which you can start using it as you normally would.

Remember, this is a beta update, which means it can be rough around the edges and particularly not great in the battery life department. But don't worry, Apple tends to fix a lot of issues with upcoming beta updates so be patient.
