    What is the best way to transfer (or cleaneast )all your new data(including activity And health)to new watch and new phone??

    Are these the steps?

    Unpair watch w/old phone(will create backup)
    Backup iphone either icloud or itunes(encrypted)
    Restore new phone from icloud or itunes
    Repair new watch

    Is it that simple? Will this bring watch settings as well?

    Also if I wanted to start fresh is there still no way to move activity and health data with a 3rd party app?

    Those are indeed the steps. After you set up the new phone, you can actually have both both watches paired to it at the same time.

    To carry over only health and activity data without other data, you can try this app:

    I haven't tried it but it looks like you have to pay to unlock the functionality.
