    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone attempted to switch between two iPhones?

    Between 9 - 5 I'd like to receive notifications from my business iPhone and out of those hours my personal iPhone.

    Apple watch can only be paired with 1 iPhone.

    I understand it can only be paired with 1 iPhone at a time.

    Do you mean you can't switch between? Like you would a Bluetooth device?

    You would have to have both phones set-up but every switch you would need to wipe all data from the watch and then re-pair with the new phone every time. About a 15-20 minute process every time. Plus you'd lose a lot of data like health tracking at every switch.

    No. You will need to unpair/re-pair them every time and go through the setup process and lose Apply pay cards etc.

    I tried. I have a 6 and a 6+. I had to unpair and wipe the watch to do it. You loose all info and have to set it up again. I'm just leaving paired to one iPhone now.
