How to factory reset your Android Wear watch


Resetting your Android Wear watch is as simple as a swipe and a tap.

The time has finally come to factory reset your Android Wear watch. Whether you’ve picked up a new phone that you need to pair your watch with, or you’ve decided to wipe your data before selling, you’ll have to do a factory reset. Thankfully this process is extremely easy, and I’m here to walk you right through it.

  • First you need to head to your Settings screen. This can be done by swiping down from the top of the screen and selecting the gear icon, or by swiping to the left to pull up your menu and choosing it from there.
  • Next you need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the menu, where you will find the option to unpair your phone.



  • When you tap on the screen, a small dialog will pop up informing you that your watch will factory reset and delete all user data. Tap on the check mark to confirm that this is what you want to do.
  • After that, you’re good to go. The phone will now factory reset itself over the next few minutes and be devoid of any information what so ever.

That’s all that you need to do in order to factory reset your Android Wear watch. It actually is as simple as a swipe and a few short taps.
