The Apple Watch has a lot in common with the iPhone, both in the way that the apps and navigation on the devices are structured, but also in there ability to connect to different networks. You can find out a lot of important information about the iPhone on its About menu, and you can do the same thing on the Apple Watch. So if you need to find your Apple Watch’s serial number, you would navigate to that menu on the watch.
Our guide below will show you two different ways to locate your Watch’s serial number. The first method is done through the Watch app on an iPhone, and the second method is done directly on the watch, without using the iPhone.
