Answer:

Hi


If you cannot unlock your Apple Watch via the normal process, then follow these steps to erase your locked Apple Watch and pair it with your iPhone:


  • Connect your watch to its charging cable, connected to power.
  • Whilst keeping your Apple Watch on the charger:
    • Press and hold the side button until you see the Power Off slider.
    • Press firmly on Power Off (do not try to slide it - just press down more firmly than a normal tap), release your finger, tap on Erase all content and settings and confirm when prompted.
  • Pair your Apple Watch using the Watch app on your iPhone, choosing to Restore from Backup if offered the option.
