Downloading and installing the latest update is actually quite simple. First of all, you have to make sure that your iPhone is running iOS 14.3. If your phone never got the iOS 14 update (officially) then you won't be able to update your Apple Watch to watchOS 7.2. Assuming you are running the latest software release from Apple, then follow the steps below:
- Place your Apple Watch on its magnetic charger
- Make sure the watch's battery is 50% or more
- Connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network if you aren't already
- Launch the Watch app on iPhone
- Navigate to General > Software Update in the Watch app
- Wait for this page to refresh and after a few seconds you will see the watchOS 7.2 update - tap on Download and Install
The entire download and update may take quite some time so be patient while the wheels are in motion. Once done, you will hear a ding sound from your Apple Watch.
Even if you don't plan on using Fitness+, it's still important that you install the update on Apple Watch. It packs a handful of bug fixes and performance related enhancements that should make the overall functionality of Apple Watch better than how it was before today. If you have automatic updates enabled on Apple Watch, the update should install overnight while your iPhone and watch are on charge.
