Simply head over to the dedicated Apple Watch app on your iPhone and navigate to General > Software Updates. Make sure that your Apple Watch fulfills the prerequisites to install the latest beta update.
Lastly, Apple has also released tvOS 16.5 beta 2 to developers. Developers can try out the latest beta by installing a profile through Xcode. Take note that all software updates are in their initial beta phase and Apple could add new features to the mix in the subsequent updates. You can check out more details on Apple's support document.
