How to Troubleshoot No Viewfinder When Trying to Pair Apple Watch?

Share This:

If you’ve recently purchased an Apple Watch, you may be wondering how to pair it to your iPhone. Unfortunately, unlike other smartwatches, there is no viewfinder to help you with the pairing process. But don’t worry – it’s still easy to do!

The first step is to press and hold the side button on your Apple Watch until you see the Apple logo. Bring your iPhone close to the watch, and wait for the Apple Watch pairing screen to appear on your iPhone. Then tap Continue.

Alternatively, if the pairing screen doesn’t appear, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and tap Pair New Watch. Follow the instructions that appear on both devices.

If your Apple Watch won’t connect to your iPhone, shut off both devices before trying again. Start by restarting your iPhone and then turning on your Apple Watch. If that doesn’t work, try unpairing and re-pairing them again by following the same steps above.

Finally, if nothing else works, try erasing all settings from your watch by going into Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Once it’s done resetting itself, follow the same steps as before for pairing up with your iPhone.

Once paired successfully, you can start using all of the features available with an Apple Watch – such as tracking fitness goals or using apps like Maps or WhatsApp directly from your wrist!
