    My iPhone uses a 2nd Apple ID for the sole purpose of syncing to i Cloud(only because when apple introduced Mobile Me I signed on). I use another apple id for all iTunes and app purchases. When I set the watch up it automatically wants to use the ID, however I don't want to use that ID because none of my apps or music is connected to that ID. I also can't receive any of my messages on the watch because I don't use the email address for my iMessages. I did disconnected the watch from the phone and synced it back. It only sees my 2nd ID and won't let me change it.

    I don't think the watch supports a different apple id. You can change which one iMessage uses on the phone though. The watch should pick it up after you make the change. Don't you receive iMessages on your phone? The watch should follow it.

    (Set iCloud and iMessage to different apple id's on the phone, in other words. The phone has separate settings for both.)
