    Step 1. Un-pair AW using app on iPhone
    Step 2. How I do secure erase AW? I recall there is key sequence to press on AW to erase it, but can't remember it. Also, is there a way to do a secure erase like I can do with Disk Utility on a Mac??
    Step 3. Delete AW from my iCloud.com account.

    Am I missing any steps?

    Unpairing does all that.

    If you're on the watchOS 3 then the buyer must be on iOS 10.

    If I see the the language set up screen on the AW it has been erased and ready for me to sell? Is that correct?
