I have an Apple Watch and a second iPhone. Now I need to unpair the Apple Watch from the first iPhone, and pair it with another iPhone. I want to keep all of my data though. How would I go about that? How would I continue?

1 Answer 1


Go to Watch< Apple Watch, then click Unpair Apple Watch. When you pair Apple Watch to the second device, all the data will be transferred.

You can also erase all content and settings on the watch and when it restarts it will have no apps or data and be ready to pair with another phone.

  • This assumes that the person still has the original phone the watch is paired to ... what if they don't?

  • @nelsonic I’ve edited the answer to cover how to erase the watch in that case. You do have data loss since you lost your backup and can’t make a new one

  • @bmike I was trying to avoid losing the data. through much research I was unable to find a way. so I lost the data by pairing to a new iPhone ...
