How to un-pair and reset your Apple Watch

How to un-pair and reset your Apple Watch

If you get a new Apple Watch or iPhone, you'll need to un-pair your old one.

Apple has set it up so that only one Apple Watch can be paired with only one iPhone, and vice versa, at any one time. So, any time you need to pair a different Apple Watch or a different iPhone, you need to un-pair the original first. Luckily, the Apple Watch app makes it easy and relatively painless to do. If you don't have your iPhone handy, you reset your Apple Watch directly, which also un-pairs it. Here's how!

Note: Un-pairing using the Apple Watch app creates a backup that's stored on your iPhone. Un-pairing by resetting your Apple Watch directly does not create a backup. If you need or want a backup, make sure you un-pair using the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

How to hide (and unhide) purchases from the Mac App Store

How to hide (and unhide) purchases from the Mac App Store

If you make a lot of purchases from the Mac App Store, your Purchased tab can get very unwieldy.

The Purchased tab in the Mac App Store shows you all the apps you've downloaded, free and paid. If you find the Purchased tab hard to navigate due to the sheer amount of apps you have downloaded, you can hide apps you may not need to see a record of, such as apps you never uninstall and always have running on your Mac. Or maybe you have young children using your Mac that you don't want accessing certain apps. Whatever the reason may be, hiding and unhiding Mac App Store purchases is easy.

How the Apple Watch is changing my health for the better

How the Apple Watch is changing my health for the better

The Watch has done for me what no other health gadget has: tracked my full-contact sport and kept me accountable.

One of the chief reasons I've been so excited for the Apple Watch these past few months is the possibility of using it to properly track my movement and exercise day-to-day. Four nights a week I play roller derby, a full-contact sport on quad roller skates, which has proven... difficult for most health and fitness gadgets to track. Steps aren't tracked nor helpful when you're talking about wheeling around, nor can most devices be worn without fear of them falling off or otherwise being destroyed.

But two weeks in, not only is the Apple Watch giving me proper tracking data for my full-contact sport — it's making me healthier all-around.

Apple Watch: The definitive review

Apple Watch: The definitive review

Apple's attempt to bring the watch into the computer age — and computing into the age of wearables.

We've seen it countless times: A starship reaches orbit, then launches a smaller ship. Enterprise. Executor. Galactica. They're meant for the bigger jobs, the longer jobs, the harder jobs. But the small jobs — the brief yet important ones — are better left to something lighter and more agile. So too, the iPhone and the Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch, however, isn't just a smaller, lighter, more wearable iPhone. With the iPhone, Apple sought to emphasize the mobile computer. With the Apple Watch, the company has chosen to focus on the watch.

This reflects the reality of how we've traditionally worn technology on our wrists — from mechanical to digital, from chronograph to calculator. By incorporating all the benefits of modern mobile computing, including communications and control, tracking and payments, it gives us more: It gives us our dreams.

We've read and watched them since childhood. Dick Tracy. Michael Knight. James Bond. They've been in the pages of our comics, and on our TV sets and movie screens, tantalizing us with just exactly those features.

That makes the Apple Watch a unique challenge. To succeed it needs to balance both past and future, tradition and technology, expectations and power efficiency. It needs to satisfy both reality and our dreams. So, does it?
