Click install and it’ll pop up a message on the watch saying that the watch will restart, and then you should see the progress going on screen showing you the percentage.

Once it’s done, it will restart again and continue finalizing the update and showing you the percentage on the screen.

Wait until 100% and it may restart again, but this time it should show the logo and then go straight to the watch face.

And if you want to check if the update was successfully installed, go setting – General – About watch – software, and you should see Tizen version.
