Does it force restore it? Does it reset completely? Or does it automatically switch over?
You'll need to unpair it from your current phone (which will backup the watch to the phone) . Then backup the phone. Restore the phone backup to your new phone. Finally pair the watch to your new phone.
Also worth noting that if you want to keep all your health data and activity history the phone backup needs to be an encrypted backup via iTunes.
If you are not bothered about keeping all the old settings then just unpair from current phone and then pair to the new one.
Dang that is such a hassle, do messages not return after restoring a backup? Cuz I remembered the last time I restored my watch I lost all my messages on it and some data.
I'm slightly confused, does unpairing reset and wipe the watch?
I know it has been said before but it is worth saying aging that you must have an ENCRYPTED BACKUP to bring over your health data. If not all health data will be lost.
This is going to be a problem for many on Friday.
It does reset and wipe the watch but it takes a backup at the same time. Then when you pair to a new phone you have the option to load the old backup or start afresh. I believe you should get the messages back if you restore from backup.
Do an encrypted backup so your health data is maintained.
You can backup health data over iCloud
Ah darn, that's why I lost so much data. The only way to keep everything is through iTunes?
No - per Apple, health data is backed up via iCloud too. Your health data should be synced with your iPhone.
