Linking the watch with your phone

1. Scanning the QR code on the kids watch

Insert a phone card into the kids watch, power it on for the first time, and agree to the required permissions. A QR code will then be displayed on the screen of the watch. An admin must then open the HUAWEI FamCare app, touch Link watch on the home screen, select Scan code, and scan the QR code displayed on the watch.

 
  • The phone registration locations of admin HUAWEI IDs and child HUAWEI ID for the kids watch and the country/region set on the kids watch must be consistent.
  • Ensure that the call, SMS, mobile data, and caller ID display services have been activated for the phone card in the kids watch.
  • It is recommended that you scan the QR code in an open area such as near a window or on a balcony to obtain a good network signal. Keep the kids watch still and adjust the angle and distance between the phone and watch while scanning the QR code.
  • If the HUAWEI FamCare app has been linked with the kids watch, go to > + > Scan code to link the kids watch with the app.

2. Registering a HUAWEI ID for the kids watch and logging in

The HUAWEI ID of the kids watch is required for using features such as chatting with families or friends, data backup, and data migration. Ensure that the HUAWEI ID of the kids watch is different from those of admins.

If an admin's HUAWEI ID is not linked with any child HUAWEI IDs or kids watches:

Use the HUAWEI FamCare app to scan the QR code on the screen of the kids watch for the system to automatically identify the phone number of the watch.

  • If the phone number of the kids watch has not been used to register a HUAWEI ID, touch Register a child account and follow the onscreen instructions to finish registering. The kids watch will then automatically log in to the account after the registration is successful.

    If the age corresponding to the HUAWEI ID used to log in to the HUAWEI FamCare app is below 18, you will not be able to register a child HUAWEI ID for the kids watch. If this is the case, you can log out and log in to another account (18 years old or above) to register a child account. You can also deregister the current account linked with your phone number, use the phone number to register a new HUAWEI ID (18 years old or above), log in to the HUAWEI FamCare app using the new account, and then register a child account.

  • If the phone number of the kids watch has been used to register a HUAWEI ID, touch Log in and follow the onscreen instructions to finish operations.

    If the kids watch detects that the phone number has been used to register an account that is not a child HUAWEI ID, it is recommended that you change it to a child HUAWEI ID to access better content for your child.

If an admin's HUAWEI ID is linked with a child HUAWEI ID or kids watch:

Use the HUAWEI FamCare app to scan the QR code on the screen of the kids watch, touch Log in, and log in to the HUAWEI ID registered using the phone number of the kids watch. You can also touch Switch accounts and log in. The HUAWEI FamCare app will then automatically display the linked child HUAWEI ID and kids watch.

  • Select the account that was used to log in to another kids watch to log in to the new kids watch. You will then be logged out of the original kids watch. Follow the onscreen instructions in the HUAWEI FamCare app and enter your child HUAWEI ID and password to log in.

  • Select a child account that was not used to log in to another kids watch, follow the onscreen instructions in the HUAWEI FamCare app, and enter the child HUAWEI ID and password to log in.

    If you have permission to manage the selected child account, you can simply select the child account for logging in without a password. Otherwise, you will need to enter the account and password to log in to the kids watch.

3. Setting information about the kids watch

After you log in to the kids watch using your HUAWEI ID, the kids watch will be linked with your phone. The pairing process takes approximately 30 seconds, which may vary depending on the network conditions of the kids watch and your phone.

Once successfully linked, complete information about the user and admin of the watch.

If linking fails, follow the onscreen instructions to perform operations.

 
  • The first phone account linked with the kids watch is the main admin. The main admin can touch in the upper right corner of the home screen in the HUAWEI FamCare app and go to Admin > New admin to invite other family members to become normal admins.
  • If the kids watch already has an admin, other phone accounts can select Scan code on the screen to link a watch in the HUAWEI FamCare app and scan the QR code displayed on the watch to apply to become an admin of the kids watch. For the HUAWEI WATCH KIDS 4 Series, press the home button to enter the app list, swipe up or down on the screen, and select QR code to load the QR code screen. For other watch models, swipe left on the home screen and go to More > QR code to load the QR code screen.
  • The main admin can edit the relationship between an admin and the child and delete an admin on the admin's personal information screen. A normal admin cannot invite a new admin.
  • Contacts added to the admin list will be automatically added to Contacts on the kids watch.
