Erase your Apple Watch and start fresh!
If neither restarting nor resetting your passcode works, it may be time to erase your Apple Watch and start fresh. To do this, go to the Watch app on your iPhone and select ‘General.’ Then, select ‘Reset’ and choose ‘Erase All Content and Settings.’
Back up your data before wiping clean
Before you erase your Apple Watch, make sure to back up any important data that you want to keep. This will ensure that you don’t lose any valuable information.
Restore from backup and voila!
Once you have erased your Apple Watch, you can restore it from your backup. Open the Watch app on your iPhone and select ‘Pair New Watch.’ Then, select ‘Restore from Backup’ and choose the backup that you created earlier.
