If the Force Touch sensor and NFC antenna was damaged and replaced during screen repair, it will not pair with a new device. Just like FaceID and TouchID components, the force touch sensor is paired to that specific watch.

feroz_khan77874 - The newer WatchOS looks at the NFC chip so if you've replaced the screen you'll need to transfer the NFC chip over to the new screen.
