    After speaking to Apple, I discovered that you have to create a Apple Watch Series 0 or 2 backup on an iPhone updated to iOS 11 in order to get the back up to restore to a Series 3 Watch with all your data. An iOS 10 backup will not be accepted by the iOS 11 iPhone and Series 3 watch. I might have missed it, but I didn't see this detail in the articles published by iMore so far.

    Good to know ... but not surprising. Thanks for the tip!

    Right, considering the S3 needs iOS 11 and iTunes (if used) 12.7. But this is the kind of thing that, without being aware of it, could make you pull your hair out when trying to do a backup from an older Watch to an S3.
