Pairing your watch with your phone

If you have just taken the watch out of the box, press the Up button and hold until your watch vibrates and displays a startup screen. The watch is ready to be paired via Bluetooth by default.

  • For Android users:
    1. Download and install the Huawei Health app from an app store. If you have already installed it, make sure that it is up-to-date.
    2. Open the Huawei Health app and follow the onscreen instructions to grant required permissions to the app. Go to > Add > Smart Watch, and touch the device you wish to pair.
    3. Touch PAIR and the app will automatically search for nearby available Bluetooth devices. Once your watch is found, touch its name to start pairing.
    4. When a pairing request is displayed on the watch screen, touch to pair your watch and phone. Confirm the pairing on your phone as well.

  • For iOS users:

    When pairing with an iOS phone, make sure that the device has been removed from the last device's list of paired devices. If it was paired before make sure it is also removed from Huawei Health, then go to Settings > Bluetooth, touch the Settings icon behind the Bluetooth name, and touch Forget This Device. Then, pair them to connect the devices again.
