IPhone BlueTooth Apple Watch Distance

I have a few questions:

1. how far can the Apple Watch connect an iPhone 5?

2. how far can the Apple Watch connect an iPhone 5 c?

3. how far can the Apple Watch connect to an iPhone 5s?

4. how far can the Apple Watch connect an iPhone 6?

5. how far can the Apple Watch connect an iPhone 6 Plus?

6. how far can the Apple Watch connect to a 6 s iPhone?

7. how far can the Apple Watch no longer connect to a 6 s iPhone?

8. how far can the Apple Watch connect to an iPhone IS?

P.S. I couldn't think of a better way to Word this, but basically, I mean "how Apple Watch from the iPhone but still being linkable?"



Normal Bluetooth range is about 10 meters/33 feet. Actual range varies in practice because of wireless interference, but you don't need necessarily to have your iPhone on or just around you (scope of arms, for example) for Apple Watch and matched iPhone maintain their Bluetooth connection.

Your watch can still carry out certain functions when it is not connected to your iPhone, including some that are available when your watch is connected to a known Wi - Fi network.

    Health and fitness of the Apple Watch data, iPhone and all the other sources are grouped within the app to health on the iPhone, which allows to adjust the results to avoid any double counting of data from different sources.

    When several sources are available, the application of health uses a single data source for updating your consolidated data.

  • cannot sync iPhone to Apple Watch 7 playlist

    I had this problem, which occurs more often when you try to synchronize with my Apple Watch. I have paired with the iPhone and load time. The iphone connected to BT and WiFi. I select music in the Apple Watch app (I put it at a maximum of 2 GB of music) and then choose a playlist on my iPhone it is 520MB in size. Most of the time, the synchronization 'in the meantime' will appear and never progress beyond that. On rare occasions, it has synchronized music to the watch. When I try to update the playlist and syncing again, it often hangs on "sync in progress". He has also deleted from the playlist of the watch repeatedly, or said the synchronization is complete, but then only about 10% of the songs could be played on the watch and the rest was dark and couldn't access it. I tried unpairing and repair of the watch from the phone repeatedly. I hard rebooted time watch and phone repeatedly. I have improved the watch Watch BONES 1 to 2 to 3 without measurable change. I recently bought an iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 and find that exactly the same problem with completely different hardware.

    I see that others have problems similar, but not sure why it is so persistent through the operating systems and the modernization of the unit. I read Apple support on this issue and following all recommended procedures. Anyone had this problem and found a solution?

    I have the same problem with my iPhone 7 series Apple Watch 2. I can't sync the playlist with Apple Watch. It has synchronized some songs and the name of the playlist, but that's all. When I change or remove a few songs in the list, it says sync or waiting but no progress. The annoying part is the morning. After night, I leave my phone and watch the load, my phone is hot in the morning and another songs have not yet synchronized. I am in desperate need of this specification. I want to at least know is there something to do about it or we need to live with it?

  • iPhone IS Apple Watch or iPod


    Looking for advice on which product to buy. I've been running with an iPhone 5 in my back pocket. I like the fact that I can make a phone call, follow my route and use music if I have and it is small enough to fit in the back pocket of your pants running. I thought the Apple Watch watch was great. Sound on your wrist; You can listen to your music; and make a call if you're worried about any anti-social behaviour... but apparently you still need your phone with you for the watch to work. Is this correct? If yes then maybe this isn't what I'm looking for. You can make a phone call on an iPod or I have to go with the iPhone OS? I have a 6 things every day for iPhone but its too big for strapping on your arm, and I don't really like armbands anyway.  Any advice on what product I buy would be great. Try Googling the answer but just get flooded by thirty-six articles on other brands of smart watch. Also couldn't find an email address general apple to put these questions to and I live in 600km from the nearest Apple Store. Thank you.

    You have a lot of different questions in your message.  I'll answer one.

  • How can I sync my iPhone and Apple Watch to a new computer without losing any data?

    I'm about to fix my laptop and I need to change my iTunes on PC. But I don't want to lose any data on the health of the Apple Watch.

    Copy of the data of all iTunes from the laptop to PC will have all my apps and music. But what about the backup? They are encrypted to record data on the health of my Apple Watch.

    Can I copy and paste the encrypted data backup iTunes?

    Please I need help.

    Move an encrypted backup from one computer to another value may not work, but as long as no device should be restored now you should be able to migrate from the library to the new computer and then take a fresh encrypted backup of each device.

    Migrate a library iTunes from one computer to another

    These are two approaches that work normally to move an existing library to a new computer.

    Method 1

    1. Save the library with this trick of the user.
    2. Remove the old computer if you no longer wish to access content protected on it.
    3. Restore the backup to your new computer by using the same tool used to back it up.
    4. Keep your current backup in the future.

    Method 2

    Connect the two computers on the same network. Share your old computer < user music > folder and copy the folder of library full iTunes in the < user music > on the new folder. Yet once, remove the old computer so is no longer necessary.

    These two methods should give the new computer, a clone of the library work which was on the former. What about iTunes is it is still the 'home' for your devices library you should not have problems with iTunes will erase and reload.

    I recommend method 1 because it establishes a current backup for your library.

    Note If you have iOS devices and that you have not reached your contacts and calendar all in all items, then you need to create a dummy entry in your new profile and iTunes expected to merge existing data from the device.

    If your media folder has been separated in the main folder of iTunes, you may need to do some preparatory work to make it easier to move. See make a library of portable split.

    If you are in the unfortunate position where you're able to access your original library or a backup and then see recover your iTunes from your iPod or an iOS device to get tips on how to configure your devices with a new library with the maximum preservation of data.


  • Want my iPhone and Apple Watch both ding when I get a text / SMS message.

    Is there a way to do this? If not, is there a way to make sure it's always the ringing telephone, even if the watch is connected?

    The way this works is that the watch will replace the phone for most of the alerts. So if the watch is connected, you will get alerts on the iPhone.

  • is your Apple Watch unplug your phone at a certain distance?

    I recently bought a series of Apple Watch 1 and I was wondering if at a distance, only he disconnects your iPhone?

    In addition, who is the home button, and what are the objectives of the buttons?


    Once they have been paired, your iPhone and Apple Watch will remain paired until they are non-matched manually. However, they can become disconnected or connected (several times), while that always paired.

    Disconnections can be normal, for example when the watch loses the Bluetooth connection with the matched iPhone and no known Wi - Fi network is available.

    Normal Bluetooth range is about 10 meters/33 feet. Actual range varies in practice due to interference with wireless (including, for example, because of the walls), but you don't need necessarily to have your iPhone on or just around you (scope of arms, for example) for devices to keep their Bluetooth connection.

    Once they have are disconnected, they should reconnect automatically after close moments being brought back.

    Apple Watch does not currently offer them alerts audible or haptic if it is taken out of the reach of the paired iPhone Bluetooth.

  • Unable to receive calls from Apple Watch, using WIFI AT &amp; T calls, when the iPhone is turned on, turned off or in Airplane Mode.

    I work on this issue and wanted to involve the community.

    I have tests the functionality Apple Watch and have been unable to solve my problems with WIFI call. I use the AT & T and I am connect to the strip of the 5 GHz on my router Xfinity.

    I am able to make/receive calls from my iPad and Mac laptop when iPhone is off / Mode plane; However, this feature does not work on the watch. I can make and receive calls from the watch when the phone is turned on.

    Another problem is that I am not able to send and receive messages (blue or green bubble) of the watch - once again when the phone is turned off or in flight Mode

    I'll copy in 2 portions of the Web site: http://help.apple.com/watch/


    If your Apple Watch is in range of a Wi - Fi network that the iPhone is connected to before, you can always do the following (even if the iPhone is off):

    • Send and receive digital messages Touch
    • Send and receive messages using Messages
    • Make and receive phone calls (if you have active calls, Wi - Fi, and you are within range of a Wi - Fi connected to your iPhone before)
    • Check current weather conditions
    • Track your inventory


    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!

    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).
