How can I get it so my Apple Watch knows about a network that my phone doesn't? The situation is that I have a MiFi as wifi connection backup for my daughters Apple Watch. Her school allows her to wear the Apple Watch but all cell phones must be turned off due to school policy. So I have a MiFi that her watch can connect to. The problem is I do NOT want her iPhone connected to it when it is on because it will not follow the cellular data restrictions on a per app basis. Both the MiFi and her phone are on the same data plan but I don't want her phone using cellular data for a bunch of apps but if her phone is connect to the MiFi, it will thinks it's on wifi and not obey the restrictions. So the bottom line is I need to get her watch on the MiFi but not the iPhone. So far, no matter what I do, when I tell the iphone to forget the network, the watch does so as soon as it's reconnected via bluetooth or via the same network. Perhaps there's a timeout of some sort that if I waited long enough before turning airplane mode off of the Apple Watch that it would ignore the forgotten network on the iphone and not delete it from the Watch? --- Post Merged, Aug 18, 2017 --- Note, I thought I would be clever and rather than "forget" the network on the iphone, just block it from connecting to the MiFi via MAC address. This doesn't work either. As soon as the watch and the phone communicate with each other *after* the phone is unable to reconnect to the mfi because it was blocked, the watch also is unable to connect to the mifi wifi when the phone is shut off. It seems that the phone will update the wifi network not just based on added or forgotten networks but also based on connection failures. So the watch will no longer connect to the mifi even though it could because the iphone was unable to connect. But even worse, unblocking the phone MAC address and reconnecting to the mifi is not enough to get the watch to connect to the mifi when the phone is shut off or put into airplane mode. In addition, no amount of forget and reconnect(re-enter password) cycles will allow the apple watch to reconnect to the mifi with the phone off or in airplane mode. it seems like the mifi has now been blacked listed in some way such that the normal process for getting a watch on a wifi network will not work.
