Before you can start using your Apple Watch, you're going to need to pair it with your iPhone.
The Apple Watch and iPhone may be two distinctly different pieces of hardware, but one can't exist without the other. When you buy a new Apple Watch, turning it on is only the first step — next comes pairing it with an iPhone.

 

 

When it comes time to pair your Apple Watch with your iPhone, you'll need to use the Apple Watch app for iOS. You should be able to find it pre-installed on your iPhone (or via the App Store, if you've removed it previously).

2. Tap Start Pairing.
3. Move your phone over your Apple Watch until your Apple Watch is lined up in the center of the yellow rectangle. (You'll know you've successfully completed the step when you see a message that says "Your Apple Watch Is Paired".)
4. Choose whether to set up your Apple Watch from scratch or to restore Apple Watch from a backup.
