How to install watchOS 8.3 beta on Apple Watch?
It goes without saying that the average user should not attempt to install watchOS 8.3 beta on Apple Watch. If something goes wrong, there is no way to restore an Apple Watch back to a working condition, unlike an iPhone or iPad.
If you are a developer or an enthusiast, you can sign up to Apple Developer Center for $99/year, or get the profile from Reddit. Download the beta profile using your paired iPhone by opening its link in Safari. When iOS asks you, install the profile on your Apple Watch. Once installed, go to Settings > General > Software Update and wait for watchOS 8.1 to show up. Place your Apple Watch on its charger and don’t remove it until the update is complete.
Enjoy testing the new beta!
