I know the iPhone 7 Plus is capable of having two Apple watches paired to it. You can only use one at a time though.

Yes, that's what I have. Just wondered how it works...like does it automatically know which watch I'm wearing? Or do I have to select it manually??

Humm, good question and since I only have one Apple Watch, I can't answer. Maybe someone that does will chime in.

It automatically knows as soon as you raise your wrist (if you leave the default automatic switch setting turned on) - but it won't switch to a different watch if you are wearing two at a time. It can only link to one watch at a time. Activity data will show the data that all watches have collected during the day, by the way. If you turn off automatic switch, you switch by tapping on the watch you want active in the watch app on the iPhone.
