For the first time in history, watchOS 7 Public BETA is ready to be updated.— ïPLÜG (@iPLUGNG) August 10, 2020
However I strongly encourage you to wait until the official version is launched.

The owner of Apple Watch is now able to test out the first watchOS 7 public beta.
Apple released the software on Monday through the Beta Software program of the company. The company has launched a beta for watchOS to consumers for the first time.
Previously, only developers could use the test versions, denying the public a pre-examination of the next features. However, with watchOS 7, that changes now.
You must register and then enter your Apple Watch into the program to try out the beta. You will also have to have an iPhone in the beta 14 program already.
The new sleep tracking feature of watchOS 7 will be accessible for users downloading the software.
Although third-party sleep tracking apps can already be downloaded, Apple has finally decided to create its own app.
WatchOS 7's ability to detect when you wash your hands is another interesting feature. A timer of 20 seconds can be shown, which tells you how long it takes to scrub.
Additional additional features of watchOS 7 include new face-to - face, enhanced training app and Siri language translation support. But the company admonishes that you should test the beta only if you are willing to withstand some potentially buggy software.
"Please note that after public beta is installed, Apple Watch can not be restored to previously released OS releases," the company adds in a FAQ. Another problem is how the Voice Over functionality in watchOS 7 beta is not supported.
The official release of the watchOS 7 is scheduled to arrive this Fall for those who are willing to wait.
