    I have the Samsung GearS2 and the Apple Watch series 1
    I made the switch to Apple because Samsung works with Apple and I was frustrated with the phone, but not the watch. BUT after getting the iphone I decided to get the Apple Watch and I haven't worn my Samsung since. I have an early termination fee to pay should I shut off the watch because it was a standalone on my account and can be used separate from the phone. The Apple cannot but that is not a problem as well as the Samsung can't on the iphone too. I like how the Apple Watch looks on my wrist. I have small wrists and it just fits well and I also love how it works.
    My Samsung sits in a drawer but it is still a good watch. When the contract is up, I will sell it or give it to my bestie.

    LOL I'm too lazy to sell unless I stumble upon someone who wants to buy, so I usually give it to a bestie.

    I have an original Apple Watch and a Samsung Gear S3. I still prefer my Apple Watch, so my Gear S3 never gets any use.

    I've got an OG Pebble in a kitchen drawer, I think. Only my personal opinion, calling it a smartwatch is a bit of a stretch. LOL For the OP I'll say that I have five. But I'll think four.one.

    Do both Sync with your iPhone when you switch between them? I assume they must but I'm just curious.

    No reason short of defect for them not to. They're both Apple Watches with the Nike having a bit of additional software.

    I'm getting a Nike at some point but it would be a deal breaker if it didn't sync.

    I have the Nike AW2. I know they sync individually. I was wondering about switching between the two. Didn't know how that would work with closing rings and things like that if he wears one during the day and then switches to the other at night.

    I've seen that there's sometimes a short delay when waiting for the phone to update with the Watch's data. Sometimes it looks to be just a matter of the phone refreshing with data it's already received.

    Since all your Achievements are generated from the phone I'd think that once it has your Watch's data you could switch without any worry. The phone should then push the various Stand alerts and Activity updates to the other Watch. I'll give this a try today.

    Ok, I switched from my SGAW to my GAS2.

    I had three Stands and some Move on the AW and 0 on the S2. I ensured the phone was up to date with the AW Activity data and swapped it for the S2.

    It took about 4+ minutes for the S2 to show my Activity data, but it did. However, I didn't get my Final Warning Stand alert or the subsequent 'You did it!' for my 1000hrs Stand, but I did get the credit.

    So syncing between different Watches and phone is no problem. Just check the Activity app in the phone to make sure you're current before switching. I've had occasions when the phone took a looooong time to update. I don't know if it had the data but didn't refresh (I'd like to think that's most likely) or it took a long time to sync the data (hope not!).

    It's nice to be able to walk on either side of the street.

    Having been weaned from a Nokia candy bar to the first iPhone, I've never tried Android or used more than one iPhone. Do you have two date/calling plans? Can you switch the SIM back and forth? Apparently ATT locks the SIM to one phone. I've always wondered about buying a SIMless phone and moving mine to it.

    Is there a way to make it sync? Our does it only do it automatically?

    It does do it automatically, but I don't know if you can manually force a sync.

    There have been a few occasions when I felt it was taking too long, so I quit the Activity app on the phone and reopened it and the data was usually updated. Sometimes I'd rinse and repeat the process before there was an update.

    Again I don't know if that 'fetched' the Watch's data or just refreshed the phone's app with data in already had. Maybe I'll try to check that out when switching to the next Watch. Maybe today maybe tomorrow.

    As the S2 has a faster processor than the AW, I don't think switching back to the AW will be any faster. While unpairing a Watch will back up data I don't know that Auto-Switching will.

    Ok, solely for the sake of science, I stayed seated for the hour to see if my 'newly' synced Watch (S2) was 100%. Although synced at approximately 1045 it didn't get the Final Warning Stand alert at 1050. But it did get it at 1150 so I'm confident everything is Jake and that I can switch Watches and gain data.

    I’m with T-Mobile, and I just swap the SIM from one to the other. I did the same when I was an AT&T customer, I wasn’t aware that you could lock a SIM to a single phone. I like having the option to try other devices.

    Sorry to be slow responding, I was on a plane when you posted. As MacGuy explained, the phone automatically switches and syncs everything when you take one off and put a different one on. It usually syncs within minutes.

    I switch between a Silver Stainless Steel AW2 and my Garmin Fenix 3HR. I prefer my Garmin for sport and training, and with the stainless link band installed for looks in my career which requires wearing a suit. Now that I think of it I prefer the Garmin in all aspects (time is continuously displayed rather than raising wrist, battery lasts weeks, notifications aren't completely annoying, it looks like a traditional time piece, there are not constant finger prints on the screen, apps don't crash, and activity tracking is accurate and reliable), so I guess as of this post I see my apple watch more as a toy than anything else, which I haven't really used much in quite some time.

    I have 2 now. Apple Watch and Pebble Time. I only bought the Pebble Time so I had a smart watch I could use on Android if I ever decide to finally run my Moto G5 Plus for a week, or if I get a different phone. That and the Pebble Time was on sale on Amazon for $50.
