[Xcode 8.1 GM] "error HE0035: Could not find a paired iPhone device for the Watch 'watchOS 3.1 (14S471a) - Apple Watch - 42mm' (C64439C5-9D9C-4B5C-B3B5-F77BBAA5B669)" when attempting to launch watch app on series1 sim

## Steps to repro

1. Create a new "iOS > App > Single View App (C#)" in Xamarin Studio.

2. Add a watch kit app to the solution 

2. Select the Debug configuration, select the watch start up project, and select an old *Series 1* watch

3. Select "Run > Start Debugging".

## Results

The deployment to the simulator fails due to no paired iPhone to the watch.

I can confirm this issue with the product versions provided above.
Comment 2 Vincent Dondain [MSFT] 2016-10-25 23:38:16 UTC
Right this is because we list all watchOS simulators and don't ensure they all have a paired device.

By default Xcode does not pair the Apple Watch Series 1 - watchOS 3.1 simulators to anything (just the Series 2).

Workaround: in Xcode take any iPhone simulator and add it a Apple Watch Series 1 - watchOS 3.1 sim.

Q: Should we list unpaired phones ? does Xcode does ? and are they usable ?

A bit sad that we expose an `HExxxx` error (not an `MTxxxx` one) as it likely won't be easy to find any error documentation that we could provide to teach how to pair the simulators.

This is fixed in master

I have checked this issue and observed that this issue has been fixed with "ProductName": "Xamarin Studio",
    "InstallerUri": "https://bosstoragemirror.blob.core.windows.net/wrench/monodevelop-windows-cycle8/0c/0ccfcd52b95305ebd5b7eca0d88c1017035910ae/XamarinStudio-",
    "MD5": "c2b711a6de14b4dae1ebb529a7abcf17",
    "Length": 105279488

i.e. user is able to deploy app on apple watch simulator of series 1 using stable Xcode 8.1

Hence closing this issue by marking it as Verified.
