Turn on "Health" in iCloud sync on your phone. That's the majority of your watch data as far as activity, achecivements, heart rate, etc...hey guys, I’m new to the whole Apple Watch thing, I got an iPhone max xs and the new Apple Watch 4 44mm SS, but I don’t see where and how it backs up in iCloud. I’d hate to lose data.
I’m so lost...
Also since you are new to Apple Watch and I think what you are asking. The Apple Watch syncs and sends its data to your iPhone. All of the Apple Watch data is integrated into the iPhone backup. So there is no separate Watch backup in iCloud or iTunes.
Unpair you old watch. This will do the 2 things you are asking.Thanks for this. I have a quick question for one of you experts. My S4 shows up Tuesday. So tomorrow I’ll back my phone up again (do it once a month) into iTunes. So when getting my new watch, just turn the old one off, connect new watch to phone and it should ask me to use previous backup of some sorts and installl anything/everything? If that is correct I was planning on turning off Bluetooth after th new watch is done, turn off Bluetooth on phone, then find a setting in the S2 watch to factory default so I can send it in for the exchange?
