Many times, the Apple “ecosystem” reminds me of Luke, getting guidance to the heart of the Death Star in the X-wing he didn’t know how to fly 10 minutes earlier (one reason I liked the same-vintage first “Alien” much better than the first Star Wars movie. The latter was much closer to real life: when something was REALLY essential, it probably didn’t work because some disgruntled employee was drinking coffee in the bowels of the ship instead of doing scheduled maintenance).
Oh, back to Apple. Atempting to follow Adam’s advice, I cleaned up my own Medical Alert stuff (see my other comment about summoning help for the owner of an iOS who’s just collapsed but speaks a language I don’t read and who’s properly customized his own devices.
I’ve just gone through updating all my own Medical ID information, and discovered in the process that in the iOS Health App, under Summary:Privacy:Devices, there were 3 identically named Apple Watches. I clicked on one of these and was told it was no longer paired to my phone. Then a long list of activity, cardiac, and vital sign fields were listed, followed by the option to "Delete All Data from [my] Apple Watch. I did this, discovering to my disappointment that in fact I’d just deleted all exercise-related data originally recorded on my IN-USE Apple Watch, yet STILL had 3 Apple Watch’s listed. Not one to be deterred, I retraced my steps on the second of the 3 listed, and found that this one was indeed paired to my phone. So, I went through the same routine on the 3rd watch listing in the Health App, then used the web to learn how to change the name of the watch I’m actually wearing (it’s in Apple Watch: Settings: General: About: Name. There, I changed the name to list it as belonging to me AND denoting its generation. HOWEVER, after doing all that, now when I launch the “Watch” app on my iPhone, the very first line on the opening screen still says [generic owner name]'s Watch.
Beneath that is a watch icon matched to my new chosen name, with the watch size listed on a second line.
I THINK (but don’t know) that the first line comes from my Mac admin account long username!
Anyone have suggestions on how to edit that?
