One of the most exciting pieces of technology that has come out of Apple is the Apple Watch. Wearable tech was not going great guns with some lackluster outings from the Android camp. However, when Apple launched its smartwatch, the whole game was an absolute domination.
Today, Apple Watch enjoys Lion’s share of users and even popularity. The best part is that Apple has been hard at work on its Apple Watch lineup, with a new model releasing every year and huge improvements to the WatchOS platform keeping older models right up there in the race.
What we love about the Apple Watch is the ridiculously simple setup procedure. Apple has kept things very very simple, so much so that even a newcomer to tech can get his/her Apple watch paired and ready in no time. Also, no matter what version you choose (WiFi or WiFi+Cellular), the procedure remains the same.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to pair an Apple Watch with an iPhone.
Step 1. Download and Install the ‘Apple Watch‘ app on your iPhone.
Step 2. Boot up your Apple Watch using the power button. It is found right below the crown.
Step 3. You will now see an animation on the Apple watch screen.
Step 4. Open the Apple Watch app and scan the animation on your Apple Watch screen.
Step 5. Now, choose the ‘Set up as new Apple Watch‘ option.
Step 6. On the next screen, choose which wrist you are going to put the Apple watch on.
Step 7. The Watch will be automatically logged into your iCloud account.
Step 8. Choose which settings you want to share between the iPhone and Apple Watch.
Step 9. Next, set a passcode according to your preference.
Step 10. You will now be walked through major apps like Heart, Apple Pay, etc.
Step 11. You can now choose to install all compatible apps or set them up later.
Wait for a few moments for the whole procedure to complete. Once done, you can use the Apple Watch as per your requirements. Do keep in mind that while these seem like many steps, it took us less than 3 minutes to get this done. The procedure is crystal clear and does not require any additional effort.
