Rumors that we are inclined to believe indicate that apple is working on a function for allow pairing Apple watch with iPad and Mac devices. In this sense, the requirement to have an iPhone to activate and configure an Apple Watch would disappear, and that is good news, if true, of course.
In this sense, the data comes from a leaker claiming to be Apple internal software analyst, and to give him credit, he has a pretty good track record, so who knows, maybe he’s right. Either way, it’s a decision Apple should make in light of its recent efforts to expand its fitness features and services; This is not to mention that it would make the Apple Watch more accessible to users, specifically those who do not have an iPhone, but do have a Mac or iPhone (yes, there are many people like that).
Apple Watch can sync across more than one Apple device too, finally. I don’t know how this will be implemented. All I know, again, **ALL** I know, is that Apple Watch will sync across multiple iOS/iPadOS/Mac devices, and will no longer be tied to one single iPhone.

How would pairing the Apple Watch with an iPad or Mac work?
In the absence of official confirmation we can only speculate and let our imagination run wild, but all logic suggests that there could be an implementation via iCloud, as with AirPods. Let’s remember that, in the previous case, by connecting our iCloud account with the AirPods, they can work on various devices and it is not necessary to link them every time we want to use them with other devices.
Unfortunately we do not have an estimated arrival date for this feature, which in itself is just a rumor at the moment, so you have to take it with a pinch of salt and healthy skepticism. The leaker who put this news on the Internet is hoping it will happen in sometime this year 2023but who knows.
In other news, the Apple Watch Series 9 should arrive in September this year, and with its release it would be the perfect opportunity for this pairing feature to debut.
