How to connect your devices

If you own both an Apple Watch and an iPhone, you might want to connect the two devices so that you can use the Watch’s fitness features with your iPhone. Fortunately, connecting these devices is relatively easy to do. All you need is a Bluetooth connection and the latest versions of the iOS and watchOS operating systems. Here’s how to connect your devices:

1. Make sure that yourwatchOS is up to date. You can do this by opening the Watch app on your iPhone and going to the “My Watch” tab. If there’s an update available, tap “Download and Install.”

2. Open the Settings app on your iPhone and tap “Bluetooth.”

3. Make sure that Bluetooth is turned on.

4. Put your Apple Watch on your wrist and wait for it to turn on.

5. Press and hold the side button on your watch until you see the Power Off slider appear.

6. Drag the slider to turn off your watch.
After your watch turns off, press and hold the side button again until you see the Apple logo appear.
This will restart your watch and should also clear any existing Bluetooth connections.
When your watch turns back on, open the Settings app again and tap “Bluetooth.” Your watch should now appear in the list of devices under “My Devices.” Tap it to connect.

What data is shared

When you connect your Apple Watch fitness to your iPhone, the data that is shared between the two devices depends on which apps you have installed and which ones you’ve given permission to access your fitness data. In most cases, the data that is shared is limited to your calorie burn rate,step count, and distance traveled. However, some apps may also share heart rate information or other kinds of data.

How to use the data

The iPhone can automatically upload fitness data from your watch if you have both devices with you and they’re connected. The watch must be unpaired from your iPhone to upload the data.

Tips for using the data

Now that you’ve had your Apple Watch for a while and you’ve become familiar with its capabilities, you may be wondering how to use the data it collects about your fitness and activity levels. Here are some tips:

-If you want to see a detailed breakdown of your activity data, open the Health app on your iPhone and select the “Day” view.
-To see how many calories you’ve burned, select the “Burned” tab.
-To see how many steps you’ve taken, select the “Steps” tab.
