The fourth beta for watchOS 2.2 adds cool new features that work with the latest version of iOS 9.3 as Apple continues its push to make Apple Watch even more powerful. In today’s video, we’re going to take a tour of all the new changes and improvements the latest beta has in store.

The main update to watchOS 2.2 in this beta centers around an updated Maps app — more specifically the ability to navigate your way home or to work, and to see things like restaurants close to your current location.

You can see this feature, along with some of the other updates featured in previous betas in under two minutes in our hands-on your below.

    I would like to see the ability of pairing more than one iPhone with a single Apple Watch. I have both a work iPhone any personal iPhone and it would be a major convenience to have both on one watch.

    Man, I’d be happy if that stupid Timer app didn’t take 5+ seconds simply to remember what it started last time. Just ridiculous. I tap the app, it immediately show up, but the countdown time is blank for 5sec – and then it shows 7 minutes (that’s how long I like my eggs done). What happened to “native” apps???

      Agreed. I’d like it if any app took less than 5 – 10 seconds to load.
