Question: How to force factory reset in Apple Watch?
I have an Apple Watch Series 1 (from the first release) and an iPhone 6s. Last week I sent my phone to battery replacement and beforehand I did an iTunes backup and erased the contents. When I got the phone back and after the restore from the backup, I noticed that my Apple Watch wasn’t pairing anymor. (yes I forgot to unpair the device before sending it to the shop).
The problem now is that I can’t pair the watch nor “unpair” it from the phone. I’ve tried to erase the contents from the settings menu on the watch and to erase it from the turn off screen when connected to charger with no luck. It’s actually driving me crazy because it’s like wearing a normal digital watch.
Btw I don’t know if it has anything to do with it but after trying to unpair from the phone, the battery died and when trying to turn it on again the iPhone was stuck on the Apple logo almost 24 hours!
