Google has started a trend of new smartwatches when the Mountain View company announced its wearable OS, which basically the first powerful open operating system, specifically design to power wearable device such as we called them smartwatches.

After announcing the sale of two Android Wear smartwatches (LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live) during their annual I/O keynote this year in June, the products has been shipping to the consumers, and if you are one of the user who ordered LG G Watch, the Samsung Gear Live or both, and expecting the delivery shortly or whether you are waiting to get started, then, we have a simple guide for you on how can get your first Android Wear smartwatch setup easily with your phone.

  • The first thing you need to do that is download Android Wear App from the Google Play Store and then switch on your smartwatch. Though, if your watch has no physical power button like the LG GWatch, then you need to place the watch in its charging cradle while the power is connected. Bluetooth also needs to be active when trying to establish a connection between your smartphone and smartwatch.
  • The watch will ask to select a language and also a prompt will open asking you to start the Android Wear app on your phone.
  • Next step is to pair your device/s, to follow up that you have to tap through the prompts on your Android device until you get to a selection screen. Now to securely connect you devices, you need to tap the device in the list of available Bluetooth devices, which has the same code as the one displayed on your watch.
