Have you tried resetting your watch? A master reset restores the original factory settings and may delete your personal data on the internal storage, such as downloads, ringtones, images, apps, and contacts. It does not delete data stored on the SIM card.

By doing this, will i lose any data on the phone? Or only the watch data will be deleted? (Since you mentioned SIM).
