Can I pair one Apple Watch with two iPhones?
Can I pair two Apple Watches with one iPhone?
Apple watch is designed to be paired with only 1 iPhone.
I think there's a stronger case to be made for pairing with two phones. Many professionals carry two phones and would like to have notifications from both.
I don't know whether the watch will pair with two phones or two watches can be paired with a phone. But just thinking about it, making a one-to-one pairing system is just much easier than making a system to handle multiple pairings. So if the watch-phone pairing is limited to one watch to one phone, I'd say it is because it's much simpler (for the people writing the software) to do it that way.
It should be very similar to the way android works, this might help
Apple has specifically said in developer forums that the Apple Watch pairs to one, and only one phone at a time.
Is the procedure for re-pairing with another iPhone straightforward?
ie: Could you do it on a daily basis or do you need to do a factory reset?
I asked the question earlier, to no avail:
if I have two watches, I can quickly pair/unpair either one, and just turn the other off? right?
the reason is, I an using a company supplied watch sport dung the day for demos of a app that we will be using, and then at night, I will want to "un-pair" the sport and re-pair my personal SS black link and use it.
Sound about right?
I suspect it's not. The fact that Apple has stated only one phone can be paired to one watch leads me to believe the pairing process will be neither simple nor straight forward.
My situation sucks..
My employer gave us all a iPhone 6 (or Plus if you want), apple leather cases, free minutes, text, and unlimited data...
however, when they installed 8.2, it didn't come with the watch app...
I asked IT about it, and they said "we aren't supporting Apple Watch with our iPhones".
So, if I want to use the watch, I have to use it with my own 5S, while slinging around a 6 as well. Bleh.
I'm guessing it will be similar to how you pair an iPhone to a computer using iTunes. Setting it up as a 'new device'. It takes 5-10 minutes.
That sounds like a nightmare!!!
