watchOS 9.2 isn’t a massive update. But it does add features in all the right places that make your Apple Watch experience that much better. For example, the Workout app now has a brand new Race Route feature that allows you to compete with yourself on the same track you’ve already taken. This is ideal for runners and cyclists who want to see a visual improvement of their progress.

Obviously, this isn’t the only change in the watchOS 9.2 update, and we’ll leave it to our reader to check out what’s new using the official feature list of the new software update:

With the feature list gone, let’s focus on the next big thing — downloading watchOS 9.2 final update on Apple Watch. It’s very easy, but not as convenient as iPhone or iPad updates. First of all, you need to put your Apple Watch on its magnetic charger. You should also make sure that your Apple Watch has 50% or more battery left, otherwise the download will not start. Once that’s taken care of, go to Watch > General > Software Update on your iPhone. Tap Download and Install when watchOS 9.2 appears.

watchOS updates take a while to download and install, so don’t be surprised at their end. It’s best if you do these updates overnight so that you wake up to a fully updated view the next morning.
