Your HUAWEI Watch helps you monitor health data, display incoming notifications, store information, and do many things expected of your smart companion. If you’re upgrading your watch to a new one, giving your old one away, or experiencing software issues, you might find yourself needing to perform a factory reset.
A full factory reset will clear all of the data off of your watch, and return it to the state that it was in when you first removed it from the box. Since HUAWEI Watch comes in many different models, your specific model could be running one of two different operating systems. Follow the steps below to perform a factory reset, depending on which model you have.
HUAWEI Watch 3 [HarmonyOS]
With Harmony OS, there are two ways that you can go about performing a factory reset. This is slightly different from Android Wear OS devices, so make sure you follow these steps.
- Press the Up button on the watch to open the app list, go to Settings > System & updates > Reset, and follow the onscreen instructions to restore the device to its factory settings.
- Open the Health app, touch Devices and your device name, and then select Reset.
HUAWEI Watch, and HUAWEI Watch 2 [Android Wear OS]
If you want to do a Hard Factory Reset on an Android Wear OS Huawei Watch, there are a few different options to achieve this:
- Trigger a reset directly in the Huawei Wear app, when your phone is connected to the Watch.
- You can reset it directly from the Huawei Watch by sliding down from the top of the screen in the watch, going to options Settings > System > Disconnect and reset.
- The last option is to do a Hard Factory Reset by pressing the power for 10 or 15 seconds until the watch being the reset process. Once the watch powers back on, you will have completed the factory reset.
Now you should have a HUAWEI Watch that has been returned to factory settings. Once this is complete, you can set up the device as new or give it to someone else to use.
