How to Pair Your iPhone with your Apple Watch/iWatch

March 17, 2015

The Apple iWatch is still fresh from it’s release, and the first thing you will have to do to is pair it with your iPhone! Unfortunately, if you don’t have an iPhone, you can’t use the new iWatch, as they work together. You cannot have any of the older iPhone 4, 4s, 3’s etc, as the connection only works with iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 plus, and must have iOS 8.2 running. Apple has created an inventive system to pair the devices using a camera feature.

How to pair your iWatch & iPhone

1. Launch the Apple Watch App on your iPhone

2. Tap “start pairing” on the main screen

3. Hold the Apple Watch up to your iPhone’s camera so the screen’s in alignment with the yellow outlined box on your iPhone’s screen

4. Follow the on-screen instructions in the Apple Watch app

However, if you’d rather not use the camera feature, you can pair the Apple Watch to your iPhone manually by doing the following:

1. Launch the Apple Watch App on your iPhone

2. Tap “start pairing” on the main screen

3. Tap “pair apple watch manually” at the bottom of the camera viewfinder screen

4. Tap the “i” icon on the Apple Watch to see its name

5. Select the name on the Apple Watch iPhone app from the list that appears on the screen

6. Follow the on-screen instructions provided in the Apple Watch app
