How to change your Apple Watch name on an iPhone, so your Apple Watch is easier to identify
Category : entrepreneur
Just like your iPhone, iPad, and AirPods, Apple gives your Apple Watch a friendly name — usually including your own name — that makes it easy to identify it from another device, such as if you use the Find My app to try to locate it.
You might want to customize this name though, especially if there’s more than one Apple Watch in your family, so you can more easily tell them apart.
You can do this from the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. Here’s how.
Check out the products mentioned in this article:
Apple Watch Series 5 (From $429.99 at Best Buy)
iPhone 11 (From $699.99 at Best Buy)
iPad (from $329.99 at Best Buy)
AirPods with Charging Case (From $159.99 at Best Buy)
How to change your Apple Watch name
1. Start the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
2. If you’re not already on the My Watch tab, tap “My Watch” at the bottom of the screen.
3. Tap “General.”
4. Tap “About.”
5. Tap “Name.”
6. Now you can change the name to anything you like. When you’re done, you can either tap the Enter key on the keyboard or tap “About” to go back to the previous page. Your watch will be automatically updated with the new name.
