It’s 2022, and smartwatches are more popular than ever. Many people have incorporated the smartwatches in their lifestyle, and if you are also one of those people, then it’s natural that you would want to connect your smartphones with your smartwatch.
But, Can a smartwatch connect with Two Phones? Is it possible? Let’s find out.
At the time of writing this guide, there’s no mechanism in place which would allow two smartphones to connect with a single smartwatch. You can only connect one smartphone with a smartwatch at a time. But, is there any workaround?
Can A Smartwatch Connect To Two Phones?
Before we get to the detail, it’s important that you understand why the smartwatch connects with the Phone. The basic purpose of the smartwatch is to collect the data (your activity, step count, heart-rate, etc.) and then pass it on to the smartphone so that you could get the insight into details inside the dedicated app.
Now when it comes to smartwatch connection with a smartphone, all major companies only allow one smartphone to connect with a smartwatch to efficiently share data.
At the time of writing this guide, no smartwatch allows the two phones to be connected with it, and only one Phone gets connected to the Watch at a time.

However, Apple allows you to connect multiple Apple watches with the iPhone at a time. It’s a more practical approach because most people usually have multiple Apple watches where one of them serves as a workout watch, and the other serves as a work watch.
