By default, the Apple Watch identifies itself as “Apple Watch of (user)” for identification on other devices. You can learn how to rename your Apple Watch to make it stand out in a list of paired devices and make it more personalized.
This process is simple and similar to changing the name of iPhone and Bluetooth devices, for example. On Apple Watch, the smart watch just needs to be paired with iOS through the Watch app to access its settings and customize the device name. See how to proceed:
- On iPhone, open the Watch app;
- Tap the “My Watch” tab;
- Enter “General”;
- Tap “About;
- Choose “Name” and enter a new name for the Apple Watch;
- Select “done” to save.
