I have accidentally unpaired my Apple Watch on my iPhone. I need to pair my watch with the same iPhone again.
(But I think the same problem can probably be faced if one gets a new iPhone with an already paired watch.)
The Apple Watch is fully working. I can open the apps, see my clock-face and so on. But in the menu bar, there is a red strikethrough iPhone icon.
If I open the Apple Watch app on my iPhone and tap on start pairing, my Apple Watch does not show the pairing image as it did first after unboxing it.
Do I need to completely erase my watch or is there somehow an option to start pairing my watch again?
According to my space usage on my iPhone (Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage), I do have a backup on my iPhone. But this is some days ago and I do not want to lose my (activity) data – so erasing my watch is really my last choice.
To put it in a nutshell: How do I pair my iPhone with my watch again without erasing it?
