Can I Connect a Bluetooth Watch and Headset at the same time?

As long as they’re attached to the phone separately, a wristwatch and a Bluetooth headset may both connect to a smartphone at the same time. After connecting your wristwatch to your phone, unplug it before attaching your headphones. All devices should be connected to the smartphone’s Bluetooth once both devices have connected to the smartphone.

Please continue reading to understand how to pair both devices and connect to a smartphone at the same time, regardless of whether it is an Android or an Apple device. Also, I’ll show you how to debug the procedure if you have any issues with connectivity.

Using a Smartwatch and a Bluetooth Headset with a Smartphone

The number of Bluetooth connections per device was formerly limited to two, but as Bluetooth devices became more popular, they received an update that allowed them to handle more. Wireless headphones were able to allow numerous devices to connect to the same “home” device when Bluetooth 4.1 was released in 2012.

It’s now able to connect and pair up to seven active Bluetooth devices, so there’s nothing to stop you from doing so. If you’re looking to get the most out of Bluetooth, the official website recommends limiting the number of devices you have connected to three or four.

What is the Difference Between Pairing and Connecting?

Pairing and connecting Bluetooth devices are two independent processes. The term “pair” refers to the process of connecting two devices together without requiring them to be exclusive. Connecting, on the other hand, serves as an active conduit for exchanging information.

Bluetooth devices may potentially be connected to a limitless number of other devices, however only seven devices can be connected at once.

How to Pair a Smartwatch and a Bluetooth Headset to Android Phones

There may be restrictions on the number of Bluetooth devices that may be paired and connected to your phone based on its age. GSMArena.com is an excellent resource for learning about various phone models and brands.

To pair your devices:

  • Turn on the Bluetooth on your mobile device. Usually, Bluetooth is in the drop-down menu from the top of the phone’s home screen. 
  • Turn on the Bluetooth on one of the devices. You can only pair one device at a time, so you will need to repeat these steps for each device.
  • Go to your phone’s Settings and select the “Connected devices” option or something close in wording. 
  • Tap the “Pair new device” option. This will open a new menu that should have a list of any nearby Bluetooth devices. 
  • Select your device name from the list and wait for the devices to pair. The pairing process should only take a few seconds.

If you want to couple another device, you’ll need to unpair the current one and reconnect it. If Bluetooth is enabled on both devices, they should instantly pair. The devices should be tested to make sure they can connect and function properly once they have been paired.

How to Pair a Smartphone and a Bluetooth Headset with iOS Phones

When attempting to connect an iOS device to a new device, it will behave somewhat differently. In some respects, it’s easier to use than Android smartphones since you don’t have to wait for the pairing process to begin until you get the devices near to each other. When connecting to an Apple device, you should be greeted with a series of instructions.

For non-Apple devices, you’ll need to follow the steps indicated above and connect over Bluetooth as you would for Android smartphones, if you’d want to connect.

How to Connect a Bluetooth Headset to a Smartwatch

If you want to enjoy some music or make and take phone calls from your smartwatch, then in most cases, you can connect a Bluetooth Headset directly to the smartwatch. Some of the following steps might be slightly different depending on the brand and model of the smartwatch and headset. 

Also, note that call conversation to a Bluetooth headset is only available with LTE smartwatches, and the Bluetooth headset may disconnect from the watch when a phone call comes through.

To connect a Bluetooth headset to a smartwatch:

  • Turn on the smartwatch’s Bluetooth by navigating to the Settings and selecting “Connections.” “Bluetooth” should be in the list that appears along with “WiFi.” Verify that the switch is on.
  • Pair your headset by making sure it’s in pairing mode. There should be an option on the smartwatch called “Bluetooth audio” or “Bluetooth headset.” Select the headset you are trying to pair. 
  • Once the pairing process is over, tap on the Settings icon next to the headset. Here you can enable “Call audio” and “Media audio” so you can listen to music and take and make phone calls. You can also tap “Unpair” if there is a problem with the pairing process and you want to try again.

Bluetooth headsets may now be used with smartwatches. You should be aware that the methods outlined above may be different if you are combining devices from different brands. For example, connecting iOS devices to non-iOS ones might be difficult.

Why Isn’t the connection Working?

It’s best to erase the Bluetooth pairings that aren’t functioning from your phone’s settings if you have a recent smartphone model and are still experiencing Bluetooth issues. If you’re still having trouble connecting your devices, try re-pairing them. It’s possible that the pairing didn’t function because anything interfered with it, therefore a new start should cure it.
