    I suspect that it only works with watches that have cellular capability. It's not pairing like it does to a phone (or like the phone pairing with the car) so much as communicating via cell data plan as it would over a network. I guess that's a kind of pairing I hadn't thought of since I don't have, need, or want a cellular watch.

    It could work with non-cellular versions. I suspect it's just the Entune app but as a complication on the Watch.

    Well shoot. It was giving me just enough hope to keep me trying with the process lol.

    Hmmm. Maybe not worth it then anyway...

    @Tideland Prius mentioned that there is an Entune complication for the watch. I didn't know that since I deleted Entune shortly after installing it because of extreme uselessness. I guess that would indirectly pair with the car via the phone.

    Hmmm. I could't find it in the watch app store. It shows the regular Toyota app under Apple Watch, but nothing in the app itself shows connecting or enabling it. Any suggestions @Tideland Prius ?

    It’s supposed to arrive with the 2021 Avalon. I’m not aware it’ll work on any other Toyota.
