so, he has a series 5 that i encouraged him to get for fall detection. I have a series 4, but I'm a triathlete and use of ALL.THE. TIME. When I went to buy the 5, he suggested we switch. So, in a nutshell, does anyone know if it's possible to swap our watches through verizon? both are cellular Thank you in advance

It must be possible. I know when I have to unpair my cellular series 4 it gives the option of removing the cellular service. But I would assume you have to contact Verizon because you now wish to have the accounts (I am assuming that you and your dad have separate Verizon accounts) swapped and each Watch is assigned a different "cellular" number (aside from the number associated with the iPhone the Watch is paired with).

yeah we have separate accounts. Im assuming it can be done...i mean people sell watches, etc., but I was wondering if I could do this with unpairing each watch and repairing but his 5 with my acct. and my 4 with his. If we have to go through verizon no biggie. Or i can just wait til the 6 comes out. Thanks for the reply!
