Apple Watch wifi passwords

Hello

I recently bought a Apple Watch 1 and finding that I can't connect to the wifi of my work. I have an iPhone 6 which is on iOS10 and did some research on the problem. It seems to get the wifi in the Keychain password, I need to forget the network, turn off the watch, reconnect the wifi and then turn on the watch. It was the only way I could do my watch to connect to my wifi at home. However, I followed the same process at work, and it does not (which frankly was one of the only reasons I bought the watch). At work, we use 802. 1 X for authentication by certificates. But it seems that others have managed with the same.

Y at - it a debugging mechanism I can do? I don't see a way to find my wifi networks on my watch, or discover the keys to see if it is registered.

Thank you.

    Apple Watch can connect to a Wi - Fi network if the network is 802.11b/g/n 2.4 GHz and your iPhone, while being connected to your watch with Bluetooth has connected to the network before. If your iPhone is not in the scope of Bluetooth compatible Wi - Fi is available for free, your Apple Watch uses Wi - Fi.

    If you encounter any problems with your watch connect this way, try the following steps:

    • Before you begin, make sure that you made a note of:
      • Name of your Wi - Fi network.
      • The type of encryption it uses;
      • Your Wi - Fi password.
    • With your iPhone connected to the Wi - Fi network and with your watch near and connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth:
      • On your iPhone, go to: settings > Wi - Fi.
      • Press the 'i' icon on the right side of entrance to your current Wi - Fi connection;
      • On the next screen, click on forget this network - leave a few moments;
      • Then, with a short break between the two, disable and re-enable the Wi - Fi using the toggle at the top of Wi - Fi free.
    • Reconnect your iPhone to the network 2.4 GHz Wi - Fi.
      • If you have a hidden network (ie the network name / SSID is not broadcast), choose Add to the network with 'The other', then enter the name of the network, the encryption type, and password.
    • After that your iPhone has reconnected, leave a little time to get the information to share your watch.
    • Test your watch by placing your iPhone in Airplane Mode (via central control or via settings > airplane Mode).
      • On your watch, slide up on the dial of the watch, then swipe left / right until you find the look of parameters;
      • This should say connected, and display a green cloud icon to indicate that it is connected to the Wi - Fi;
      • Slide down again to return to the watch face.
    • Take your iPhone out of airplane Mode when you are finished.

    Note that, if your iPhone connection is possible via Bluetooth, it will always be used by your watch rather than connecting to a known Wi - Fi network.

  • Remote App to Apple Watch invalid password

    I recently got a Apple Watch as a gift. I am configuring the Remote app with my iTunes and Apple TV.

    House sharing is enabled for all devices and they are all on the same network. Both iTunes and Apple TV see the watch. However when I try and enter it in iTunes, it says the access code is invalid. When I enter it on the Apple TV I click nothing happens.

    All devices have the last update, and the Apple TV is a version of 2014 with the last software update.

  • I still have to type my password after I enabled unlocking with Apple Watch.

    Well, I did everything correctly. Or at least I think. But for some reason, my mac still asks me a password to unlock. As I opened the cover, I get the message "Unlock with Apple Watch". But he invites me just after my password.

    Did someone else faced with something similar or is that what I'm doing wrong?

    Thank you

    I have the same question.

    I filled all the criteria and even turned off the FileVault nothing helps. The MacBook Pro (with OS Sierra end 2013) seems to want to "" be unlocked, but the watch (1st generation with OS 3) shows absolutely no sign of communication with the Mac. All devices are on the same wifi and Bluetooth is turned on.

    I give up!

    In recent days, I discovered something disturbing.  If I take off my Apple Watch and put back on without having to type in the code 4 digit, even after an extra charge per night, it will not ask for a password after an hour or two and works normally.  If it's supposed to happen?  I couldn't find anything in the support forums.

    I got my setup shows to use a password because I got it last December.

    Hi Suzanne

    If you use the following settings:

    -On your iPhone, in the application of Eve, go to: My Watch (tab) > General > detection of wrist - on.

    -On your iPhone, in the application of Eve, go to: Watch My > password > enabled.

    -Also on screen settings of password - unlock with iPhone turned on.

    Then, after putting on your wrist, your watch will unlock after whatever you do first: unlock your watch manually (by entering the access code) or unlock your iPhone.

    Then, it will remain unlocked (including when the screen is idle) until you remove it from your wrist. When you remove your watch, it locks automatically.

    Make calls via Wi - Fi

    If your cellular operator offers Wi - Fi calls, you can use Apple Watch to make and receive calls over Wi - Fi instead of cellular network - even when your pair iPhone isn't with you or is disabled. Apple Watch comes to be in range of a Wi - Fi network that is connected to your iPhone in the past.

    To see if your carrier offers Wi - Fi calls, see the article Apple Support phone with Wi-Fi calls, then enable the calls on your iPhone and Apple Watch Wi - Fi.

    Note: You can make emergency calls via Wi - Fi, but when possible, use rather iPhone over a cellular connection - your location information will be more specific.

    Enable on iPhone Wi - Fi calls. On iPhone, go to settings > phone and turn on Wi - Fi calling and application to other devices.

    Enable calls on Apple Watch Wi - Fi. Open the Apple Watch app on iPhone, tap My Watch, tap phone, then turn on Wi - Fi calls. If you do not see the parameter, make sure that you have activated calls on iPhone Wi - Fi.

    Answer please if you are able to perform any of these functions! And any troubleshooting you can think!

    Hello

    These features are not available because Apple Watch cannot connect to a network of GHz Wi - Fi 5.

    If your watch is not connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth, but lying in a 2.4 GHz Wi - Fi network your iPhone plugged in before, the watch can connect to this network and you can continue to use certain features, including Wi - Fi calls (when it is supported by your operator, you already have in place).

  • Is there a Wifi antenna Apple Watch?

    Sometimes when I disconnect my iPhone but I am close to my Wifi connection, I find that it doesn't have me say that my iPhone disconnected the connection with it.

    I found a green word 'Connected' with a cloud just beside sign in green as well, like the iCloud logo, you know what I mean?

    But when I go out and get out of my Wifi connection and try to disconnect the iPhone from the watch, he just says "Disconnected" in red.

    So I just want to know if it connects to the Wifi in itself or not because if so, it must of course has a Wifi antenna inside right?

    Hello

    Apple Watch can still be used in conjunction with the matched iPhone (which is based on cellular services) in places where there is no Wi - Fi network.

    The availability of some built-in and third-party applications can vary, depending on your cellular data settings and a network of cellular data speeds.

    If your question relates also to longer term, it is not currently possible to update the software on Apple Watch unless the paired iPhone is connected to a Wi - Fi network.

    Some built-in functions of Apple Watch can still be used even when the pair iPhone is not available via Bluetooth or Wi - Fi.
