Thieves Could Use A Stolen Apple Watch After A Simple Factory Reset

The Apple Watch has been out for only a few weeks and a security bug has already been discovered. According to a video published by iDownloadBlog, the Apple Watch's security can be circumvented by performing a factory reset that erases all of the device's data. The newly wiped Apple Watch can then be set up as a new device and paired with another iPhone. The Apple Watch is designed to automatically ask for a passcode when it detects it's no longer on a person's wrist.
