    I just got an Apple Watch and it appears the previous owner didn't remove it from their Apple account.

    I'm assuming the only way to get this done is for that owner to do something on her end, but I figured I'd ask if there was anything I could do while I wait to hear from her.

    No, unfortunately it's locked to their acct until they unlock, unpair it.

    Is this your second AW because I thought you got one a while ago?

    Yes, the previous owner will have to remove it in person, if removing it remotely (via iCloud) isn't working because of a bug.

    It is actually. I didn't keep the other one then I regretted the decision.

    Thanks for the information. The seller contacted me back rather quickly and we got it handled. It is now synced to my phone and I'm receiving messages on it right now! ;-p
