Evernote for iOS version 10.1 Release notes in Evernote for iOS Issues (Versions 10.0 and above) Posted November 13, 2020 @Jeshi - the Apple Watch does not count as an additional device. it is considered 1 with your iPhone. I do think your iPhone has to be active as a device. You cannot, for example, set up your iphone, connect your watch, then deactivate your iphone in favor of an iPad. The watch would stop working at that point. All kind of moot right now given that unless, like me, you are still on 8.x, there is no watch app right now.
