New Apple Watch? Congratulations! Whether you have the Series 5 with your screen always on, or have made a bargain with the still useful Series 3, you may be wondering how to set it up. After all, the watch is unlike any other Apple device, both in its dependence on its iPhone and in the way it works.
The good thing is that Apple has really done it, very easy to put into operation. Let's take a look.
Take your iPhone
The first step is to put on your new Apple Watch and then turn it on by pressing and holding the side button. When it's on, bring your new iPhone. As with setting up a new Apple Pencil, or a pair of AirPods, the iPhone will detect your new watch and automatically open a panel on the screen. Touch Continue on this panel.
Now, like setting up a new iPhone, Apple Watch will display an animation on its screen. Point your iPhone's camera at this cloud of pixels, and the two devices will pair.
Configure or restore
The next step depends on whether you have ever used an Apple Watch or not. Otherwise, you will set the clock suggestion as new. If so, you can also choose to restore from a backup.
This is also the part where you log in to iCloud with your Apple ID. Our own Graham Bower, Apple Watch resident expert, says that your Apple Watch should automatically log in to your Apple ID. If not, you will have to do it from the Apple Watch application on your iPhone.
