Whether you bought your smartwatch recently or are planning to buy it is best if you were thoroughly educated on setting it up. Some of the features, especially the Huawei Watch 3, can be tricky if you don’t have proper guidelines on setting them up. This article will give you a step-by-step guide on how to best set up your Huawei Watch 3 or any other smartwatch with a lot of ease for the first time.
Preliminaries in Setting Up Your Smartwatch
Pairing your smartwatch after switching it on is very crucial. You need to check on the smartwatch user manual first to see if the smartwatch requires a specific android version or above. The OS requirements of the smartwatch significantly affect the compatibility of the smartwatch with your smartphone.
There are inbuilt apps that come with your watch, and there are others that you will need to download and install manually. You can also connect to other devices like earphones or headphones via Bluetooth if your smartwatch has Bluetooth capabilities.
Step 1: If you are using a smartphone that is not the same brand as your smartwatch, you will need to download an android wear app on your phone. Turn on your smartwatch and ensure your phone’s Bluetooth is on at the same time.
Step 2: you will need to set up the language that is preferable to you on your watch. You will see a pop-up on your watch asking you to select the language you could use to set up your watch. After selecting the language for your smartwatch, you will have to respond to a prompt on your phone asking you to start up your android wear app.
Step 3: in this step, you need to pair both devices after answering the prompts from both devices. You will need to check on the device name of your smartwatch on the Bluetooth list.
Step 4: Using the passcode that appears on both screens, pair the two screens. This is a crucial stage for ensuring the privacy of your information.
Step 5: you will realize that your smartwatch has started updating its software. You will need to connect to WIFI as sometimes software updates can be quite large and take a lot of time to update.
Step 6: Check on your notification settings and allow the smartwatch to receive notifications from your phone. In some cases, some phones or smartwatches will prompt you with a push notification to grant access and permission for notifications.
Step 7: You will need to enable Google Now if it is not automatically enabled. Use your Google personal account to log in for Google services. Once you have enabled Google Now, you should use your smartwatch connected to your smartphone.
After successfully connecting, make sure your smartwatch is up to date. Some smartwatches will update automatically once connected to WIFI, while others need manual updating. It would help if you were very keen on how your new device responds and how interactive it is on its interface.
