    Can't seem to find a proper answer to the question. I'll be getting my SS-watch this week after using the AWS for almost a month. Logically the data should be synced to the Activity-app and then back to the new watch when that is setup. But has anyone actually done this and if so can you let me know how it worked out?

    Since one can't have two watches synced to the same phone I'm guessing that I need to unpair then pair the new which would sync all my current data to the new watch. Right?

    You'll loose the activity data from the day you make the switch. The previous data will still be in your activity tracker. This only works if you restore from backup and don't set it up as a new device.

    Used a 38mm for 3 days prior to returning it. New 42mm is paired and Health/Activity apps on iPhone have data for both watches. No need for restore.
