Thieves Can Easily Reset A Stolen Apple Watch

I had no idea the Apple Watch had nothing in place to keep crooks from resetting and using a stolen watch.

Unlike the iPhone, if someone steals your Apple Watch, they can easily reset the device (bypass the passcode), and pair it with a new iPhone logged in to a different iCloud account. In other words, it’s totally feasible to steal an Apple Watch and set it up on a different device as if you just purchased it from an Apple Store.
