I would like to wipe the OS on my AW 6 and reinstall it. I have a problem with Siri that would not go away after erasing, unpair/repair.

I see there is now the option to recover the watch here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204776

But this only works if the watch prompted the Phone/Watch animation or the red exclamation mark.

My watch has not given such prompts and I would like to go through the recovery process anyway.

Any ideas? Is there a way to intentionally make the watch give these prompts?

Thanks

I’d like to know if this is possible too!
