  • New option to keep the Apple Watch's screen active and turned on for 70 seconds
  • New "Quick Play" option in Apple Music for easy access to music
  • The Music app UI has been tweaked and can now display the app that's playing music 

watchOS 2 Beta 5 is now available through Software Update from an iPhone running iOS 9, by going to the Apple Watch app > General > Software Update, or from the Watch Dev Center for registered devs.
