Question: apple id on apple watch

Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to use a different apple id on an apple watch than on your iPhone ?

Answer:
Answer:

Unfortunately the only way to change the watch Apple ID is from the Watch app on the paired iPhone. I have no idea whether that would cause a conflict with your father’s ID already on the iPhone or not, and I’m not sure anyone here has tried what you are scheming.


I’m also unsure how the pairing to your father’s phone would impact stuff like email and iMessage traffic. I suspect this would still sync via Bluetooth to your dad’s phone if it was within range, and I can’t see a way to transfer the link to your iPad.

Sure, but I thought it would be possible to set up an apple watch with my father's iPhone than just change the watch apple ID (which would be my father's) by mine. (Cauz I don't have an iPhone yet but I have a macbook an an iPod)
