On certain generations of apple watch, the force touch sensor is tied to the specific watch, I think it was the series 2, 3, and 4. If you replaced the sensor, it would work just fine with whatever phone it was paired with, but as soon as you unpaired it from that device, it would never pair with another one again.
 
 
 
*EDIT MUST READ*
 
'''My initial answer was incorrect'''. The force touch sensor is NOT paired. It’s the NFC sensor on the screen that is paired. You’ll need to transfer the original NFC sensor to the new display. If that doesn’t work, you can use the old screen to pair it with the new device then swap the new screen after it has been paired.
