To pair your Android device with your watch follow these steps:

  1. Make sure that your watch and Android device are close to each other.
  2. Start the TomTom MySports mobile app on your Android device.
  3. Tap Watch in the mobile app.
  4. From the Clock screen on your watch, press DOWN to open the Settings screen, then select PHONE and press RIGHT. Select PAIR NEW.
    The watch starts looking for the MySports app pairing request.
  5. On the Connect screen of your mobile app tap to connect.
    Your Android device shows Searching.
  6. When the name of your watch appears in the list on the Searching screen, tap on it and accept the request to pair.
    Important: Check your Android notification bar for the watch pairing request. On some Android devices the pairing notification is shown in the Android notification bar after you have selected the watch you want to connect. Some Android devices show a pop-up, some don’t show anything. Devices that do show a pairing request require you to accept pairing within a few seconds.
  7. In the MySports mobile app, enter the PIN code shown on your watch, then tap Pair.
  8. Once your MySports app and watch are connected tap Done.

Your watch and your Android device are now paired.

As long as you have the mobile app active or running in the background on your Android device, the watch automatically tries to connect when it has a new recorded activity to upload or when the QuickGPSfix data is out-of-date.

If you open the mobile app on your Android device and it is trying to connect to your watch, you may need to wake up your watch by pressing DOWN from the clock screen. It can take up to 30 seconds to connect to your watch.

If you are upgrading your Android device version, then you usually have to fully un-pair and re-pair your watch.
