One common reason to factory reset your Apple Watch is if you’re selling it and want to wipe all your personal data off of it.

To get started, open the Settings app on your Apple Watch. Tap General, then scroll down and tap Reset.

For a full factory reset, which should only be used as a last resort, tap Erase All Content and Settings.
