How To Set Up Apple Watch Passcode
Setting Up Using the Apple Watch:
On your Apple Watch home screen, tap on the “Settings” app. Scroll down and select “Passcode.” Tap on “Turn Passcode On.”
You will be prompted to enter a new passcode. Use the keypad to set your desired passcode. Re-enter the passcode when prompted to confirm it.
Setting Up Using the iPhone:
Launch the “Apple Watch” app on your paired iPhone. The app icon resembles a silhouette of an Apple Watch.
Then, scroll down and select “Passcode.” Tap on “Turn Passcode On.” You will be asked to enter a new passcode for your Apple Watch. Type in your desired passcode. Re-enter the passcode when prompted to confirm it.
