It's been three weeks since Samsung released the fourth One UI Watch 5 beta update for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5, and it was about time for a new beta firmware to roll out. Samsung has now started seeding the fifth One UI Watch 5 beta build.
The fifth beta update ends in firmware version ZWH3. The changelog (via @a_for_albert) mentions fixes to the charging status error in the Quick Panel, fixed Wi-Fi connection errors, and a watch face synchronization error that's been addressed.

One UI Watch 5 should go public this year
The One UI Watch 5 beta program originally went live for the 2021 and 2022 Galaxy smartwatch lineups at the beginning of June. In the meantime, Samsung hosted the second Galaxy Unpacked event of the year in Seoul, where the company announced the Galaxy Watch 6 series running One UI Watch 5 out of the box.
Samsung said it wants to release the One UI Watch 5 update for previous Galaxy Watch smartwatch models after the Watch 6 series hits the shelves. The Watch 6 will go on sale on August 11, but Samsung didn't reveal an exact timeframe for the public One UI Watch 5 update for older watches.
Nevertheless, the new update will likely exit the beta stages soon and even more likely go live for the Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 5 lineups before the end of the year.
