iPhone 7 and Apple Watch - possible to transfer Activity data?
I've got my 7+ on order and it's arriving late this month/early next.
This will be my third iPhone, so the procedure of swapping over is pretty familiar and straightforward enough even if I did have a complete mental blank on the day! However, there's an extra factor this time 'round now that I've got an Apple Watch as well - how do I swap over from my 6 and still keep all the accumulated Health/Activity data?
Okay, it's not the end of the world if it can't be done, but I'd rather transfer it all to my new phone ...

Re: iPhone 7 and Apple Watch - possible to transfer Activity data?
Here's what you do... First, unpair your watch from the old phone to make the watch save data to the phone.... Next, Use iTunes to make a backup of your old phone... make sure in iTunes you select the option to make an encrypted backup... Next, restore the backup from iTunes to the new phone... finally, pair your watch to the new phone...
