I have just purchased an iPhone 14 pro

I need to re pair my wife's Apple Watch to it. Unfortunately I wasn't aware that I had to unpair it from the old phone before I reset the phone to factory settings. My Apple Watch will not pair to the new phone. Is there another way to pair the Apple Watch.

Well done
Tap "Erase All " to confirm. This resets your Apple Watch to the factory settings.
