How do I pair my Suunto watch with Suunto Movescount App (iPhone)?


Note: This article applies for Suunto 9 and Suunto Spartan Collection watches.

To pair your Suunto watch with Suunto Movescount App for iPhone or iPad:

  1. Wake up your watch by pressing the middle button.
  2. If your watch has been paired with another mobile app e.g. the Suunto app, forget the app. Go to Settings > Connectivity > Paired devices. If MobileApp is listed, press the middle button and choose Forget.
  3. Ensure that Airplane mode is disabled: Settings > Connectivity > Airplane mode. If Airplane mode is activated (toggle is green), press the middle button to disable it.

  4. Ensure Discovery is enabled on your watch. Discovery controls Bluetooth broadcasting on the watch. If Discovery is disabled, your mobile device cannot find the watch. Go to Settings > Connectivity > Discovery. Check that Discovery is enabled (toggle is green). If it is disabled (grey), press the middle button to enable Discovery.

Start the pairing process on your iPhone or iPad:

1. Make sure that Bluetooth is enabled and start Suunto Movescount App.

2. Tap the 'watch’ icon in the top right corner of the start screen.
