Steps to take before you sell, give away, or trade in your Google Pixel Watch

Use these steps to remove your personal information from your Pixel Watch before giving the Watch to its new owner. We also recommend you delete your eSim from your watch to avoid access to your texts and phone calls. Erasing your eSIM is similar to removing a physical SIM from your phone.

Note: After you erase the eSIM, make sure that your Watch plan is canceled.
