IOS: Watch Kit paired device unavailable for development

apple-watchiosswiftxcode

I can't run my Apple Watch application in XCode. My phone+watch is listed as a "Unavailable Device" and says "paired device unavailable for development". When I try to launch the app it says the same thing.

How can I resolve this?

I'm using XCode 7.1, iOS 9.0, WatchOS 2.0.1.

This is what worked for me, and it is a lot easier and faster than un-pairing so I would try this first. From the Clock Face Swipe up, and click on the Ping iPhone button. After it makes a sound, go back in Xcode it should change no longer be unpaired or unavailable for development.
