Pair with your smartphone: The packaging or manual of the specific company’s model of smartwatch you’ve purchased will mention an app that you’ll need to download to your smartphone via a link or QR code.

But sometimes you may be redirected to the company’s website to download these apps after scanning the QR code. But be careful not to download these apps from any unauthorized website. Once the app is downloaded, install it on your smartphone. Then connect your smartwatch through the apps installed on your smartphone. Bluetooth technology is commonly used here so make sure you have Bluetooth enabled on both your smartwatch and smartphone.

Set up language and region: After you turn on the smartwatch, it will prompt you to set up your region and language, in which case you select your desired region and language. Normally English language is set first in the smartwatch. Log in or create an account: Once the smartwatch is connected to the designated apps on your smartphone, you will get the option to log in or open a new account within those apps. Log in after signing up for an account using your email address or phone number. Note that while doing this process, your smartphone’s internet connection must be active because through this process your user profile will be connected to the manufacturer’s server. (e.g., Google account for Wear OS, Apple ID for Apple Watch). And through this, you will be connected to their ecosystem.
