How to pair and set up an Apple Watch with your iPhone

Before you can begin using your Apple Watch as it was meant to be used, you’ll need to pair it with an iPhone. Keep in mind that you must have an iPhone 5 or later in order to pair with an Apple Watch. You’ll also need to make sure that the iPhone is running iOS 8.2 or later, since this firmware includes the Apple Watch companion app needed to initiate the pairing process.

Right now I'll let you with this video walkthrough guide brought to you by iDB:

Check your iPhone's firmware

First of all you'll need to check your iPhone's firmware as you need to be running on iOS 8.2 or later to pair your iPhone with an Apple Watch. To check your firmware go to Settings → General → About and look for the Version number. If it’s 8.2 or later, then you are all set. If not, go to Settings → General → Software Update and update to the latest version of iOS.

Pairing Apple Watch with the Apple Watch companion app
Turn on your Apple Watch by pressing and holding the side button until the Apple Logo appears. When prompted, Open the Apple Watch companion app, and tap the My Watch tab. You should see a button that says Start Pairing on both devices. Tap the Start Pairing button and hold your Apple Watch up to the camera so that it aligns with the viewfinder on the Apple Watch App. This should automatically pair your Apple Watch with your iPhone.
