    It's probably a dumb question just wanted confirmation.

    Will I have to unpair my Apple Watch with my 6 plus before pairing it to my 7 plus?

    You can pair it to both at the same time or do one or the other.

    I'm pretty sure you can only pair a watch to one phone (you can pair multiple watches to a phone though).
    If you're moving to a new phone, the best order to do things is unpair watch, backup phone, restore new phone and then pair watch. That way you'll restore the watch properly when pairing it back (unpairing watch will do a backup of it to the phone first and backing phone up after backs up the watch backup)

    Ooops! Phil is totally right. I just returned from a week of hiking and got my wires crossed. Thanks for pointing out the correct answer Phil!
