For starters, it’s worth noting that Wear OS watches only contact other accessories via bluetooth. They do not support devices with ANT + wireless technology.

It is also worth considering that the procedure for connecting smart watches (like R500 Gold or others) and headphones may differ depending on the version of the operating system installed in the watch phone. It is better to install “fresh” OS updates, so that there are no difficulties when synchronizing 2 devices.

We finished with the recommendations, it’s time to find out how to connect bluetooth headphones to a smart watch.

Preparing the headphones

What should be done:

  1. Recharging– we plug one end of the USB cable into the corresponding socket of the accessory, the other into the USB port of a PC or power bank . We are waiting for the charge level to reach at least 40%, so that the device does not turn off during pairing.
  2. Turn on– hold down the power key on the headphone / headset case, or a separate Bluetooth pairing key (depending on the model). The fact that the device is ready for work will be notified by a sound or light signal.

This completes the preparation of bluetooth accessories, let’s move on to the watch phone.

Basic steps on how to connect headphones or a headset to a smartwatch like the R500 Black :

  • go to the clock settings;
  • click on “Connection” → Bluetooth;
  • select “Available Devices”.

It remains to wait a couple of seconds until the smartwatch detects the bluetooth accessory. The name of the headphones / headset will appear in the list on the smart watch screen – you need to click on it and then a connection will be established between the 2 devices. Sometimes it is required to additionally enter a password or PIN-code on the watch phone.

A nuance: many bluetooth accessories remember the device with which they were paired and, when turned on, establish a connection with it (if the user does not “untie” the gadgets from each other).
