    Setting up your SmartWatch 3

    Arrow left SmartWatch 3 SWR50 support overview

    For your SmartWatch 3 accessory to work properly, you must first install the latest version of the Android Wear application on your Android™ phone or tablet and then pair and connect the phone or tablet with your accessory. There are two ways to perform this setup. You can use NFC, which automatically links you to a download page for Android Wear on Google Play™. Alternatively, if your phone or tablet doesn’t support NFC, you can use the manual setup option. Remember that you can only pair the SmartWatch 3 with one phone or tablet at a time.

    To set up your SmartWatch 3 using NFC

    1. Make sure that your Android™ phone or tablet is connected to a Wi-Fi® network and that it maintains a Wi-Fi® connection throughout the setup procedure.
    2. Phone or tablet: Make sure that the NFC function is turned on and that the screen is active and unlocked.
    3. Place your phone or tablet over the SmartWatch 3 so that the NFC detection area of each device touches the other. A Google Play™ download page for Android Wear opens on the phone or tablet.
    4. Phone or tablet: Tap the relevant text or icons on the screen to download and install Android Wear.
    5. Phone or tablet: Once Android Wear is installed, open the Android Wear application, then follow the on-screen instructions.
    6. Phone or tablet: If Bluetooth® is not turned on, tap Turn on Bluetooth when prompted.
    7. Phone or tablet: From the list of available devices, select the SmartWatch 3. A pairing code now appears on both the SmartWatch 3 and your phone or tablet.
    8. Confirm on your phone or tablet that the same code is displayed on both devices. The SmartWatch 3 now checks for updates, installs any required software and restarts automatically, if necessary.
    9. Phone or tablet: Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup.
    10. After setup, the SmartWatch 3 prompts you to turn on some features, such as Google Now and Location services, to add more functionality and improve the user experience. If desired, follow the relevant instructions.

    The first time you pair and connect the SmartWatch 3 with a new phone or tablet, the procedure can take several minutes.

    If your SmartWatch 3 has already been paired with another phone or tablet, you have to reset your SmartWatch 3 before pairing it with a new phone or tablet. For more information about resetting, see To perform a factory data reset.
