    AWS2 came today. It is setup, on my wrist and paired with my phone.

    Is there anyway to pair my AWS1 with my iphone without resetting my watch? I don't want to go back through the setup process. I like the way it is setup now.

    I'm thinking if your first watch was paired to the phone, and then you paired the S2 to the phone without doing anything to the first watch (no unpairing, no removing from your icloud account, etc.), then both watches should be paired to the phone.

    WatchOS2 provided the ability to pair 2 watches to a single phone.

    The phone will determine which watch is on your wrist if you set the toggle to "auto detect" in the watch app on your phone. Tap the watch icon to see.

    I thought that would be the case but when I restored my new watch it did so from a backup of my old watch. Now it wants to pair with my old watch and I can't seem to find a way to bring up the Pair screen without resetting the old watch.

    It makes sense why it wants to do this but I really wish I didn't have to wipe it to pair my old watch.
