  4. Follow the on-screen instructions on your iPhone to pair your Apple Watch with your iPhone. You’ll be asked to choose a language, and then to hold your iPhone up to the Apple Watch to pair the two devices.
  5. You’ll be prompted to set up the watch, including choosing your wrist preference, setting up Apple Pay, and selecting which apps you want to install on your watch.
  6. Once you’ve completed the setup process, your Apple Watch will be ready to use!

Note: You will need to have an Apple ID and be signed in to it on your iPhone to set up your Apple Watch.
