Now that you’ve backed up your old iPhone and set up your new one, it’s time to transfer your data—including your Apple Watch. Here’s how.

If you’re using an iPhone 6s or later and iOS 11 or later, the process is super simple: just hold your old iPhone close to your new one, and the two devices will wirelessly transfer everything over including your Watch settings and data.

If you’re using an iPhone 6 or earlier or iOS 10 or earlier, you’ll need to use iTunes on your Mac or PC to back up your old device and restore from that backup on your new device. (Make sure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version first.) Once that’s done and you’ve set up your new iPhone, open the Watch app on it and tap through the various screens until you get to the “Pair New Watch” option—and then pair away as usual.

Put your new iPhone next to your Apple Watch.

Make sure that both devices have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on and are in range of each other.

Tap the My Watch tab, then tap your watch at the top of the screen.

If you don’t see Pair New Watch, wait for a moment while your iPhone searches for your watch. If you still don’t see it, check that both devices have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on and are in range of each other, then try again.
Follow the instructions on your iPhone and Apple Watch.

A message will appear on your iPhone asking if you want to restore from a backup or set up as new.
