Question: How do you update Apple Watch from Watch iOS 1.1 and pair it with a new iPhone 7?

I currently have an Apple Watch (iOS 1.1) and have upgraded my iPhone to the iPhone 7. I have been experiencing problems updating the iOS on the Apple Watch and am unable to pair it with the new iPhone. The old iPhone which I paired with the Apple Watch is no longer with me.


Please offer help and instructions on what I should do to upgrade the Watch iOS, and pair it successfully with the iPhone 7.

Apple Watch, watchOS 1.0.1, null
