There are several benefits from having a passcode on your Apple Watch, some being the ability to use Apple Pay to make transactions or to use the watch to automatically unlock your Mac. Having a passcode also does not require you to enter it every time you use your watch; you are only prompted for it when the Apple Watch is removed from your wrist or if the watch is restarted. Here’s how to set up your Apple Watch Passcode:
- Launch the Settings App
- Scroll down and tap Passcode
- Tap Turn Passcode On
- Enter the four digit passcode you want to use
You can also add a passcode through the Watch app on your iPhone. If you forget your Apple Watch passcode, you need to erase the device and then restore from a backup. This can be done by launching the Watch app on your iPhone. Good luck!
