Hi, Krista,

Thanks for stoping by the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I understand that you've forgotten the passcode to your Apple Watch, but no longer have the device paired with an iPhone. I'd be happy to help!

It looks like you actually came from the article that provides instructions on what to do in this scenario, If you forgot your Apple Watch passcode - Apple Support . Specifically, the following steps from the "Use your Apple Watch" section:

If you don't have your paired iPhone, you can still remove the passcode from your Apple Watch.

  1. Keep your watch on its charger until you complete these steps.
  2. Press and hold the side button until you see Power Off.
  3. Firmly press the Power Off slider, then lift your finger.
  4. Tap Erase all content and settings.
  5. Wait for the process to finish, then set up your Apple Watch again. When asked, restore from a backup.
