Apple Watch has become such a convenient accessory that some people have several of them at once. Fortunately, the iPhone can sync with multiple such watches. But wearing them at the same time, keeping in touch with a smartphone, is hardly possible. And you still need to look for such a fan of watches. Having more than one Apple Watch will allow each one to have its own unique apps, settings, and background.

Switch between clocks
Only one Apple Watch can be in activity mode. To activate another device, you need to put it on your hand, removing the previous one. Then you need to raise your hand up or wave it. The new hours will be marked on the screen at this time. WatchOS itself does not allow multiple users to use the same watch or carry multiple devices at the same time.
Over time, your activity and training data is synced across all of your watches. This makes it possible to automatically update information on devices after they change. Results from one Apple Watch via iPhone will be transferred to others. One has only to put on a new watch for training, as it will display all the information about the number of steps taken per day and the exercise points accumulated. Synchronization of results usually takes about a minute, this time depends on the amount of data required for the transfer.
