My iPhone was lost and I want to pair my watch with my new iPhone. Everything I see says that unpairing the watch will erase it. The problem is I don't have a backup of the watch since it's a new phone.
Is there a way to backup the watch without erasing it?
I know that if I had a recent backup of my old phone and restored the new phone from it, it would have the watch backup as well, but in poor form my backups were too old from before I had the watch. Also even if I did have a recent phone backup it still wouldn't have the very latest data from the watch, and that's what I'd like to save.
There are some similar questions, but none answer my question. Apple watch still paired to an iPhone I no longer have Pair Apple Watch again without erasing
