    Hi All

    My friend has an Apple Watch Series 2 which would not update.

    We reset the watch and go through the motions to pair again through the iPhone app but it keeps failing. I wondered if it as his iPhone but I have tried mine and I get the same results.

    The watch shows the message to put the iPhone next to Watch

    My phone detects the watch

    I hold the phone up to the watch

    The watch face changes to the back of the watch. The phone prompts to update the watch.

    On pressing Update Now the phone starts to activate and then says Pairing Failed

    After pressing Start Again the phone takes a while to unpair and after a while the watch face returns to the move phone to watch icons.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    what is the watchOS version?
    Is the iPhone connected to a 2.4ghz Wi-Fi?
    Did you try a manual pairing? (i)

    Same, running watchOS 6 beta and iPhone ios13 beta, watch won’t pair, I’ve already reset it, not sure what my options are regarding support, looks like I’m stuck with a very expensive bracelet until public release.
