You need to connect your Gear to your mobile device before using the Gear. There are 7 steps ahead.


To connect your Gear to a mobile device, please install the Samsung Gear app onto the mobile device.

1. (On the Gear) Turn on the Gear

4. Please confirm that passkeys on your Gear and mobile device match with each other. Then Tap OK (4.2)




5. Read the Terms and Conditions and tick the check boxes. Tap NEXT when completed.

If you connect the Gear to another mobile device, then the Gear will be reset automatically and all the data will be removed from its memory. Please back up important data stored in the Gear’s memory. Samsung is not responsible for any data loss.
