    Does anyone know or have any theories on whether Apple Watch will work with two iPhones at once?

    I know it's probably a narrow user/use case, but I personally carry two iPhones with me all the time. One is for work and one is my personal iPhone. Even though I could use my work one for personal, for legal and best practices reasons (e.g. not mixing client data with my personal data in iCloud) I use two.

    I'd LOVE if the Watch allowed me to access both but know this would be very unlikely. Just curious on what others think?

    Interesting idea, but I doubt it will. It's not a use case model that would be high on their support list. When they release a dual-SIM phone it will certainly work with both numbers, but I can't see it connecting simultaneously to two different phones.

    True. Although I do imagine a good chunk of professionals may use two phones. Probably not two iPhones though. I think it would be more of a technical limitation, e.g. how does a watch via Bluetooth know what to pair with and when.

    I use two iPhones myself, but since the 4S isn't supported by the Apple Watch it looks like only my 5s will work. I have just assumed the watch could only be paired with one iPhone. I think the watch would give me more value for my money than upgrading one of my phones to the 6.

    It would be cool if Apple would add support for multiple phones. And I am sure there will be someone out there that has a watch on each hand for their two phones.
