    How to pair Apple Watch with iPhone

    Check if your Watch and iPhone are compatible with each other

However, you need to first download the free Watch app on your iPhone. Also, make sure that your Apple Watch is on during the process. Launch the Watch app and tap All Watches and then Add your watch.
