iPhone Restore as new: what happens to watch data?
I was talking with a friend the other day and we were discussing iOS upgrades/restores and the apple watch. Whenever a new major iOS version hits, I usually restore my phone as a new phone, not restoring from a backup. What happens to my watch data such as activity etc? If I restore the phone as new, will my watch pair with it without restoring the watch?
I am afraid of losing my fitness and activity data if I do it the way I've always done. Is it even necessary for me to restore/setup as a new iPhone? I've had quite a bit of springboard crashes on my 6 Plus and I wasn't sure if it was something lingering that's causing it.
