Introduction

Your Apple Watch can do a lot on its own, but it’s designed to be used in conjunction with your iPhone. In this article, we’ll show you how to connect your Apple Watch to your iPhone and get started with using it.

If you’re setting up a new Apple Watch, you’ll need to pair it with your iPhone before you can use it. Once your Apple Watch is paired with your iPhone, it will stay connected as long as both devices are within range of each other and are powered on.

What you need

In order to connect your Apple Watch to your iPhone, you will need:
-An iPhone that is an 5s or newer and is running at least iOS 8.2
-An Apple Watch
-The Apple Watch app, which can be downloaded from the App Store

Once you have everything you need, follow these steps to connect your devices:
1. Make sure that both your iPhone and your Apple Watch are powered on and within range of each other.
2. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
3. Tap “Start Pairing” on the Welcome screen. Or, if you’ve already set up your Apple Watch but want to pair it with a new iPhone, tap “Add a New Watch” instead.
4. Hold your Apple Watch close to your iPhone. A viewfinder will appear on both devices, with a notification confirming that they are creating a secure connection. If you don’t see the viewfinder, or if you’re having trouble connecting, make sure that both devices have Bluetooth turned on and that they are in range of each other (no more than 30 feet or 9 meters apart). You may also need to restart both devices.
5. Once the connection is established, you’ll be asked to choose whether you want to restore from a backup or set up as a new watch (see “Restore from backup” or “Set up as new,” below). If you’re setting up your first Apple Watch, tap “Set up as new.”

If you don’t have an iPhone, you can still use some features of your Apple Watch by connecting it to a compatible Wi-Fi network.
