Hello Slujan8,


Thanks for that info and choosing the Apple Support Communities. If I understand correctly, you are unable to setup your Apple Watch after forgetting the passcode. To help with this issue, please follow these steps from this Apple resource on your situation:

  1. Keep your Apple Watch and iPhone close together until you complete these steps.
  2. Open the Apple Watch app and tap the My Watch tab.
  3. Tap General > Reset.
  4. Tap Erase Apple Watch Content and Settings, then tap again to confirm. You might need to enter your Apple ID password.

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

  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.
