The Apple Watch is one of several gadgets that addressed the demand for personal computing. It elevated personal computing to an entirely new level. It allows you to accept calls, respond to messages, pay for products and services purchased, and even discover directions using maps. Even the most advanced technology needs periodic restoration. The Apple Watch app on your iPhone and the iPhone it’s attached to is the default methods for recovering your iPhone. This may not be possible in other cases. This post will show you how to reset an Apple Watch easily. If you see these steps are useful, follow Motherofcoupons for more tips and hacks for your Apple Devices.
If your Watch is turned off but you know your passcode
You can unlock your Watch from your associated iPhone if you remember your password
On your iPhone, launch the Apple Watch app.
Tap Passcode and then select Unlock with iPhone.
Switch on your Apple Watch and push the Digital Crown.
To unlock your Apple Watch, enter the passcode or use Touch ID on your iPhone.
If you’ve forgotten your passcode but have an iPhone associated with it
If you don’t know your passcode, you can still use your associated iPhone to unlock your Apple Watch. This procedure will hard reset your Apple Watch, erasing all content and data (if Data Erase is turned on, your Apple Watch data will be wiped after the tenth failed login attempt anyway).
Fortunately, your Apple Watch is automatically backed up along with your iPhone, so it can be restored as soon as you reset it (it’s also backed up to iCloud and iTunes when you back up your iPhone).
On your associated iPhone, launch the Apple Watch app.
Navigate to My Watch > General > Reset.
Choose Erase Apple Watch Content and Settings, then agree (you may be prompted for your Apple ID password). If you have forgotten your Apple ID password, you may reset it here.)
If prompted, choose to maintain your current cellular plan.
The factory settings of your Apple Watch will be restored. When the operation is finished, choose the prompt to restore from backup. After it is restored, you will be able to establish a new passcode.
If you can’t remember your passcode and don’t have a linked iPhone
If your Apple Watch is locked and unpaired, you may still do a hard reset without an iPhone. When you link it with your iPhone, you may restore it from a backup.
Place your Apple Watch on its charging stand.
Hold the side button down until the Power Off screen appears. Firmly press the Power Off slider (do not slide it)
Select Erase All Content and Settings
The factory settings of your Apple Watch will be restored. After that, you may link it with your iPhone, restore it from a backup, and set a new passcode.
