We show you how to configure an Apple Watch without having your own iPhone to do so and thus be able to use the watch without problem.
Today we are going to teach you set up an Apple Watch without having your own iPhone. A great way to enjoy this watch, being able to configure it on a friend’s iPhone, for example.
Today, it is impossible to have an Apple Watch and not have an iPhone. Basically because we need the iPhone to be able to configure the clock and because this is a continuation of the device that we have in our pocket, but on our wrist. That is why we do not contemplate this possibility.
But we are going to help you configure it without having an iPhone, simply with the device of a friend or family member.
How to set up an Apple Watch without having an iPhone
The process is very simple, but it is true that it is somewhat hidden. But following the steps that we are going to show you right now, you will be able to do it without any problem, so let’s go there.
To begin, we go to the app installed on the iPhone, which helps us to configure the clock. Once we are here, we will see that a tab appears at the top with the name of «All watches». Click here and it will take us to a new screen to add the new clock.
By clicking on that new tab, it will tell us if the device is ours or that of a relative. We choose this second option, since we are going to configure it for someone else.
He will explain to us how everything works, and he will tell us that this person will have to create an Apple ID to be able to configure their new device.
We follow all the steps indicated and we will have our Apple Watch ready and fully available to use it without any problem.
As an important requirement, the Apple Watch must be from Series 4 and must always be Wifi + Cellular, since it does not have an iPhone to obtain mobile data.
