Hello all,

I unpaired my Apple Sport to get it ready for selling. However, it seemed like the process took faster than I expected (less than 5 minutes) since I read posts here that it takes up to 10 minutes. How can I verify that the Watch was truly wiped and reset? I turned it on, and it shows me the language choices, then instructed me to pair the Watch. Is that good enough to verify? Thanks.

Unpairing is quick, less than 5 minutes. It's the re-pairing that's long, about 20 minutes. I've had 3 watches I frequently unpaired/ re-paired for a week straight. If you see the language choices, you're good. Just like when you first turned on your watch out of the box.
