Apple Watch might one day be separated from the iPhone the same way the iPhone was separated from the Mac/PC in iOS 5, but today is not that day.
Virtually everything you do on the Watch is tied to the iPhone in some way.
That said, there are other options out there, especially if you only want to give her a fitness tracker.
