A question from Aidan: Upgraded my phone, unlinked my Apple Watch and added it to my new iPhone, now my bloody daily stats have reset and its going to be impossible to get 12 hours standing now, so I’m going to fail my monthly challenge of closing all rings every day and fail my full year.
How to Restore your Apple Watch Fitness Activity History
You couldn’t of unpaired it properly then. When you unpair all data is saved to your phone which should be saved to iCloud. Did it myself last week when I paired my new watch.
Did you manually back up your iPhone before swapping it out? If not, that was on you. With that being said, I’ve done shit like that as well.
You can manually enter data in the Health app. If you’re adding data for things you did, it’s not cheating yourself. It’s just correcting a data entry error.
If you still have the old phone back it up to iCloud then restore your new phone from the backup. If you can’t, welcome the fresh start.
