To talk, text, or use data on your watch, first sync it to your iPhone. Here's how to set up NumberSync for Apple Watch (GPS + Cellular):1
- Go to the Watch app on your iPhone and follow the prompts to start pairing.
- Select Cellular and then Set up Cellular. If you don't have a plan for your watch, you'll be prompted to select one. Be sure you have the AT&T user ID and password for the iPhone number you're using.
- Make sure to check the box and read the Important Information for NumberSync on the 911 screen.
- Select Verify address.
- Follow the prompts to complete your watch setup.
Once you activate NumberSync, you can start using your iPhone's wireless number on your watch.1Good to know:
When you call 911 from your watch, the call goes over the mobile network if possible. If a mobile network isn't available, emergency teams use device location data from nearby Wi-Fi®
networks to help locate you. If that data isn't available, they go to the address you provide.
