    Ok so I'm thinking of adding apple pay to the phone. I know I will need a passcode now but will I need one for the watch as well?

    Of course, you think Apple would be stupid enough to allow anyone to pick up your :apple:Watch and use your :apple:Pay?:confused: I guess someone needs to lookout for your wellbeing. :D Also you use your iPhone without passcode protection?????? :eek:

    yep I have never had a need for a passcode.

    the reason I asked if because I added a card and a passcode to both and the watch isn't asking for it. must be an OS 03 glitch

    Passcode for the watch is only for when you first put it on to wear it, to unlock the watch (you can also set up using Touch ID on your iPhone to unlock without having to enter in the Passcode)

    It's not every time you turn the screen on.

    What lagwagon said ^^^^

    To set up Apple Pay on the watch, you also need to give your watch a passcode so it will lock when it's removed from your wrist.

    When you put on your watch, you can unlock it either by entering the passcode on the watch or by using TouchID on your iPhone. You won't have to enter your passcode again until you take it off because it's periodically checking for your skin by using the LED sensors on its back.

    If you don't want or need to put Apple Pay on the watch, setting up a passcode is purely optional.
