Open watch app on your iPhone.

Open the Watch app on your iPhone.
Select the “Start Pairing” button at the bottom of the screen. You can also choose to “Set Up for Family Use” or “Restore from Backup” if you have a paired watch already.
Point your iPhone’s camera at apple watch display.
A message should pop up on your Apple Watch that says ” Frame Completed.” If it doesn’t, reposition your phone so that the entire watch is visible in the camera frame.

Tap the My Watch tab.

You can manually pair your Apple Watch if you need to. For example, if you’re setting up your Apple Watch for the first time, or if you’ve recently upgraded to a new iPhone or Apple Watch.

1. Open the Watch app on your iPhone, then tap the My Watch tab.
2. Tap your watch at the top of the screen, tap pair new watch
If you don’t see Pair New Watch, make sure that your watch is powered on and in range of your iPhone.
3. Tap Continue on your iPhone, then wait for an animation to appear on your Apple Watch.
4. Hold your Apple Watch close to your iPhone, then wait for an animation to appear on your Apple Matchmaker implant case’s display that shows that it’s in range of your iPhone. If more than one Matchmaker is nearby, you might see multiple animations appear on their displays; Tap the one that shows yours is in range of an implant case for another person’s device (or vice versa), and that has 3 soccer balls under it instead of 2 (indicating network strength). If no one else is trying to set up their watch with yours at the same time and they don’t have an activated NFC chip matching yours within 2 feet (60 centimeters) of each other, you’ll see “No Near Field Communication Detected.” This means no pairing will occur between devices since there’s no NFC chip within range that can be read by either device. The only way around this is if both sides have an activated NFC implant and are able to tap them together such that each device can read the other’s unique identifier stored on the chip. 5. When asked, position the strap so that it covers most or all ofyour tattoos or body piercings in order for the watch to properly detect them during setup; You should only be asked this question if you have any exposed tattoos or body piercings when going through setup (if not, skip ahead). 6. Follow the instructions onscreen until you see the Set Up Complete screen, then tap Continue on your iPhone.

Put your Apple Watch on your wrist.

Assuming you’ve already unpacked your new Apple Watch and charger, and have updated your iPhone to iOS 8.2 or later, you’re probably eager to start using your new wearable. The first step is to pair it with your iPhone. Here’s how!

Before you begin, make sure your iPhone is running iOS 8.2 or later, and that it has Bluetooth turned on. You’ll also need to make sure that both devices are in close proximity to each other; the Apple Watch needs to be near your iPhone in order for the initial pairing process to work properly.

Once you’ve verified that both devices meet the aforementioned requirements, it’s time to get started!

1. Put your Apple Watch on your wrist. You’ll need to make sure that it’s snug but not too tight, as a loose fit can result in inaccurate heart rate readings.

2. Press and hold the side button on your Apple Watch until you see the Apple logo appear. This can take a few seconds.

3. Once your Apple Watch has booting up, you should see a message on its screen that says “Start Pairing.” If you don’t see this message, swipe down from the top of the watch face to access the Control Center, and then tap the icon that looks like two interlocking rings. This will trigger the pairing process.

4. On your iPhone, open the Apple Watch app. You should see a screen prompting you to begin the pairing process; if not, tap on “Start Pairing” at the top of the My Watch tab.

5. Hold your iPhone up so that its camera is facing your Apple Watch; you should see an animation on the latter device’s screen telling you to do this. Once everything is lined up properly, a message saying “YourApple Watch is Paired” should appear on your iPhone’s display; tap “Continue” when prompted.

6. Now that both devices are paired, you can begin configuring them to work together! The initial setup process is relatively straightforward; just follow the instructions on-screen and you’ll be all set in no time!
