    Hi all,

    I´ll receive my Apple Watch soon.
    One question I found no answer yet is:

    Can you pair your Apple watch with two iPhones?
    I don´t mean that simultaneously, but I have two iPhones, one for work and one private (even with two different Apple ID´s).

    Now, on evenings and weekends I would like to use it with my private one.
    During working days of course with my work phone.

    How long does it take to pair an Apple Watch with an iPhone?
    I am not interessted in syncing photos or music...

    Is anyone here having the same question or even tried it? Thanks!

    Just thought I'd chime in as I'm in the same boat. I'd ideally like it paired with my personal phone, but also able to show select information from my work phone. I imagine the implementation of this would be quite complicated.

    As it stands, I'm not aware of any way to do this (and I have the watch already). The only 'workaround' I've found is to add my work calendar/email to my personal device so that at least the most important information I'm notified about.

    I started a thread a few days ago on this same matter... I have tried to do this and it will not work..
    Originally had the watch synced with my personal iPhone , when I went to sync to my second, the watch sets it up as a new device and all the previously synced info from the first phone is deleted. So as of now, we can only pair with 1 device

    I'm in the same boat - 2 iPhones, one for work, one personal. You could theoretically re-sync each evening but it would be a pain wipes out apple pay stuff. (I had to do a re-sync to fix an issue with calendar alerts not showing up - it took forever and had to re configure apple pay again) So i'm doing the same with sending calendars and mail to my personal phone and syncing my personal phone with my watch. :)

    Cheers,

    Thanks for your comments.
    As we don´t have Apple Pay here in Germany :confused: that wouldn´t be a problem, but I guess syncing iphones twice a day can be a pain.


    Maybe we´ll see some improvment in the future. :apple:

    Yeah I hope so - the re-sync takes some time....kinda a pain but you could try it but be prepared to spend 15-20 mins - it's the same process when you first set up your watch. I'm not that patient. I do hope they make that a feature in the future.

    Cheers,
    B

    Cannot, regardless you use Apple pay or not. It's the official answer from Apple when I ask their staff.
