If you find yourself in a situation where you no longer have access to your iPhone, but need to unpair your Apple Watch, there are a few methods you can use.

If you have an Apple Watch with LTE connectivity, you can unpair it directly from the watch itself. Simply open the Settings app on your watch, tap General, then scroll down and tap Reset. From here, you’ll see the option to Erase All Content and Settings – select this, and enter your passcode to confirm. Once complete, your watch will be unpaired from your iPhone.

If you don’t have an Apple Watch with LTE, or can’t access the Settings app for some reason, you can still unpair your watch using your iPhone. First, open the Watch app on your iPhone, then tap the My Watch tab at the bottom. Next, tap the info icon next to your watch at the top of the screen. From here, scroll down and tap the Unpair Apple Watch button. You’ll be asked to confirm – once you do, your watch will be unpaired.

If you can’t access your iPhone at all, or it’s powered off, you can still unpair your watch. To do this, you’ll need to put your watch into Airplane Mode. Once it’s in Airplane Mode, press and hold the side button until you see the Power Off slider appear. Swipe the slider to the right to power off your watch. Once it’s off, press and hold the side button again until you see the Apple logo appear. At this point, your watch is in DFU mode and ready to be unpaired.

To unpair your watch in DFU mode, you’ll need to connect it to a computer running iTunes. Once connected, iTunes will prompt you to restore your watch – select this option, and your watch will be unpaired from your iPhone.
