You can get your Apple Watch back, or at least help people return it to you, by finding where you left it in the house or around the world.
Everything gets used to us. At first, if you wear a high-end Apple Watch, you might feel self-conscious about it and flinch when you almost catch it in a doorway. You’ll soon forget how much it cost, and then you’ll forget to wear it.
When that happens to you—and it will, it’s not a question of if—it could be that it’s still charging by your bed. If that’s the case, the only problem is that it’s inconvenient, since you wanted to use it and noticed when it wasn’t there.
If you leave it somewhere else, like a hotel or office, you might never find it again, unless you use Find My. Usually. If it has already been set up.
How to set up Find My on the Apple Watch
- Install the Find My app on your iPhone.
- Tap your name at the top of Settings.
- Click on Find My
- Put Find My iPhone on.
- Enable Offline Finding should be on.
- Then tap Send Last Location to turn it on.
- Your Apple Watch doesn’t have any settings for this, but you don’t need them. When you turn on Find My on your iPhone, the same thing happens on your Apple Watch.
If you have it turned on, you shouldn’t just leave your Watch lying around. But you don’t have to freak out when you realize it’s gone.
How to find Apple Watch?
- Open the Find My app on your iPhone.
- If the Devices tab isn’t already chosen, tap it.
- Scroll down the list until you see your Apple Watch and tap it.
The app will show you a map with your Apple Watch’s location on it. It won’t be exact, and it might not even be where the Watch is at the moment.
If your Apple Watch has LTE, it may be able to show you where it is. In addition, it may also be able to show you where it is if it is connected to a Wi-Fi network, such as at home or work.
Even if you don’t have LTE, the Watch’s battery will still die at some point. When that happens, or if it can’t show you exactly where it is, the Find My app will show you where the Watch was the last time it could be found.
What if you’ve also lost your iPhone?
- Any browser can be used to log in to icloud.com.
- Choose Find iPhone.
- Select All Devices from the drop-down menu
- Choose an Apple Watch.
How to deal with Find My spotting your Apple Watch?
If you’re lucky, just seeing where the Watch is, or where it was last, on a map will be enough to tell you to calm down. It’s at home, at work, and at your friend’s house. All of that is good, but sometimes it isn’t enough.
You can make your Apple Watch make a sound when it’s at home but not on the charger or when Find My says it’s close by. The trill is quite sharp, but because the Watch is small and its speakers are small, you have to be close to hear them.
You can keep playing the sound, though, until you do. When you click “Play Sound” on iCloud.com or the “Find My App” page, the Watch plays this trill as expected. It does, however, show a message on the Watch and send you an email to let you know that Find My was used.

Worst case scenario
There are two more things you can do if you really can’t find your Apple Watch. The first thing you can do is put it in Lost Mode. This lets you send a message that shows up on the face of the Watch so that anyone who picks it up can find out how to get in touch with you.
To do this on the iPhone app, go to Find My and then tap on Mark as Lost. The Lost Mode option can be found on iCloud.com.
Alternatively, if necessary, you can remotely erase your Apple Watch to ensure that no one sees your data.
