If you can’t access the paired iPhone for some reason, you can reset the Apple Watch from your device.

1. Swipe in the Apple Watch app to find the Settings app. It is shaped like gear like the iPhone app.

2. Unlock the Settings app and wipe it down to “General.” It has a gear icon, which is very suitable.

3. Scroll down and select “Reset.” It emerges at the base of the list.

4. Clear all content and settings. The warning on this page states that resetting from Apple Watch does not remove the Activation Lock that links your clock to your iCloud account. Please be assured that the content is suitable for this issue.

6. Now Apple Watch has erased all your data and is reset and ready for pairing.

Knowing how to unpair your Apple Watch can be very useful to anyone who is actively using Apple Watch, has just acquired a wearable, or has decided to upgrade to the new iPhone. The Apple Watch pairing that comes out of the box and works right away is pretty easy, as the factory setting is right when you press the digital crown, and you can pair it. But when you unpair, it will be a bit complicated.

Unfortunately, the Apple Watch is not a regular Bluetooth speaker, so you can’t unpair or connect to a new device with just one touch. But don’t worry. Several workarounds in the Settings menu are still sufficient.
