  7. If you have not done so already, you will be prompted to add your Samsung account. It is not required but if you skip this step, you will miss more functionality such as the ability to set the reactivation lock (in both Bluetooth and Standalone mode), receiving Message/Email notifications through the Samsung server when the device is in standalone mode, and being able to download apps/watch faces. Select SKIP or SIGN IN and follow the on-screen prompts.
