When you reset your Apple Watch, all of your data will be erased, including your apps, watch faces, settings, and health data. If you have a cellular Apple Watch, you will also need to remove your cellular plan.

If you are selling or giving away your Apple Watch, it is important to reset it before doing so. This will help to protect your privacy and prevent anyone else from accessing your data.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when resetting your Apple Watch:

  • If you have a backup of your Apple Watch, you can restore it after you have reset your watch.
  • If you have a cellular Apple Watch, you will need to remove your cellular plan before you can reset your watch. You can do this by going to the Settings app on your Apple Watch and tapping Cellular. Then, tap Remove Plan and follow the instructions.
  • If you have forgotten your Apple Watch passcode, you will need to erase your watch using your iPhone. You can do this by following the steps above, but instead of entering your passcode, you will be prompted to enter your Apple ID password.

Methods for resetting an Apple Watch without a paired phone or password

If you don’t have your paired iPhone or you forgot your Apple Watch passcode, you can still reset your Apple Watch by following these steps:

  • Put your Apple Watch on its charger.
  • Press and hold the side button until the power button appears in the upper-right corner of the display.
  • In order to see Erase all material and settings, press and hold the Digital Crown.
  • Tap Reset.
  • Tap Reset again to confirm.

Your Apple Watch will be reset and all of your data will be erased. However, Activation Lock will still be enabled, which means that you will need to enter the Apple ID and password that was used to set up your Apple Watch in order to pair it with a new iPhone.

If you don’t know the Apple ID and password that was used to set up your Apple Watch, you will need to contact Apple Support for assistance.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when resetting your Apple Watch without a paired iPhone or password:

  • You will not be able to restore your Apple Watch from a backup.
  • If you have a cellular Apple Watch, you will need to remove your cellular plan before you can reset your watch. You can do this by going to the Settings app on your Apple Watch and tapping Cellular. Then, tap Remove Plan and follow the instructions.
  • If you have forgotten your Apple Watch passcode, you will still be able to reset your watch using the steps above. However, you will not be able to pair your Apple Watch with a new iPhone until you enter the correct Apple ID and password.
