This can happen if the two devices are out of range, the Bluetooth on either device has been disabled, or there is an issue with the network connection. To fix this issue, users should toggle Bluetooth on and off on both devices, and make sure that Airplane mode is turned off, and Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are turned on. If this doesn’t work, users should try forcing their Apple Watch and iPhone to reconnect by bringing them together wihin range.

To ensure a successful connection, make sure that both devices are in close proximity and that their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings are enabled. Additionally, if either device is in Airplane Mode, you will need to turn it off before attempting to pair them.
