Connect your watch with your phone

Your Android Wear watch works together with your phone, so you'll need to connect them.

Before you start, make sure your watch and phone are compatible.

  1. Turn on your watch.
  2. On your phone, open the Android Wear app Android Wear . Tap Set it up.
  3. When you see your watch’s name, tap it.
  4. You’ll see a code on your phone and watch.
    • If the codes are the same: On your phone, tap Pair. Pairing can take a few minutes, so be patient.
    • If the codes are different: Restart your watch and try again. If the codes still don't match, try these troubleshooting steps.
  5. To finish set up, follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure the box for notifications to Android Wear is checked.
  • To see watch notifications from the apps on your phone, tap the checkbox next to "Android Wear."

Note: When your phone and watch are paired, you’ll see "Connected" on the Android Wear app on your phone. When they’re not paired, you’ll see Disconnected disconnect on your watch’s screen.

Connect multiple watches

You can pair multiple watches to a single phone or tablet.

  1. Pair the first watch using the steps above.
  2. For the next watches, follow steps 1-5 above.
  3. Instead of seeing a pairing code, on your phone, tap the triangle next to the watch's name.
  4. Tap Pair with a new watch and follow the instructions on the screen to finish.

Note: You can’t pair a watch with more than one phone or tablet.
