    I have a sport that I am giving to someone after my SS black sport arrived. Want to wipe it to factory new.

    I unpaired it thinking that was the first step. Then paired the new watch, all is fine there.

    So my question is, do I still have to reset the old one from the watch? Now that it is unpaired, it takes you right to a pairing screen and can't access the general setting to reset. Do I need to repair the old one again, then reset, then unpair again? Or is it wiped from the unpairing?

    Can you have 2 paired at once? If I repair the old one, what happens to the new watch pairing?

    Thanks for any knowledge or experience that you may have with this.....

    Unpairing does not necessarily delete data. You have to reset the watch to wipe it clean. Reset can be done on both the app and the watch.

    Can't have 2 watched paired at once. What happens to the new watch paired will depend on the option you choose 1) new set up 2) restore from back up.

    Nonsense, unpairing resets a watch to default.

    Either unpair, or if you want to be certain, use the Apple Watch app and go to General -> Reset -> Reset all settings
