To pair your Apple Watch after setting up your iPhone, bring the two devices to close together and make sure Bluetooth is enabled on both devices. On your iPhone, open the Apple Watch app, then tap Pair New Watch. You will then be prompted to bring your Apple Watch close to your iPhone, which will cause the Apple Watch pairing screen to appear on your iPhone. Once it appears, tap Continue and follow the on-screen instructions until you have successfully paired your Apple Watch with your iPhone.

Troubleshooting Apple Watch Reconnection Issues with iPhone

The most common reason why an Apple Watch won’t reconnect to your iPhone is that Airplane Mode is enabled on either the watch or the phone. Additionally, it might be because Wi-Fi or Bluetooth is turned off on your iPhone, or if you are too far away from your iPhone. If none of these are the issue, then it could be a problem with the Apple Watch software, which can be fixed by restarting both devices and resetting the connection between them.

Troubleshooting an Unsuccessful Apple Watch Pairing

It’s possible that your existing Apple Watch is not pairing because either the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connections between your watch and your iPhone are disabled. Make sure both the watch and your phone have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi turned on, and that neither of them is in Airplane Mode. If they are, turn off Airplane Mode on both devices to allow them to pair. Additionally, make sure the Apple Watch App on your iPhone is up-to-date to ensure a successful pairing.
