    How many feet does the phone need to be in order for AW2 to connect to it?

    Relative but in a near ideal environment BT is rated for 100M. Of course this is the max under the most ideal conditions so you could cut that in ½ for most situations and should be within range.

    Class 1 BT range is 100M, but this is typically only found on desktops and laptops with plentiful power. Class 2 is rated at 10M and is the most common implementation we typically see. Apple does not state what class the phone and watch BT are, but most people are probably in the 10M range, or in the same room. It typically will not cross through walls in a house.
