Hey Amazfit users! If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve found yourself in a bit of a pickle with your beloved smartwatch. You know, that frustrating moment when your Amazfit watch gets stuck on the QR code screen, and no matter what you do, it just won’t budge. Well, fear not, because I’ve been there too, and I’m here to help you out!

Understanding the QR Code Screen

First things first, let’s talk about why your watch is showing that pesky QR code screen in the first place. Typically, this screen appears when you’re trying to pair your Amazfit watch with your smartphone. The QR code is like a secret handshake between your watch and phone, allowing them to establish a connection and become best buddies.

However, sometimes things don’t go as smoothly as we’d like, and your watch can get stuck on this screen. It’s like your watch is saying, “Hey, I’m ready to pair! Scan me!” but your phone is just not getting the message.

Fixing the Issue

Now, let’s dive into some solutions to get your watch back up and running.

Method 1: Reset Your Watch

One of the most effective ways to solve this problem is by resetting your Amazfit watch. It’s like giving your watch a fresh start, wiping the slate clean, and allowing it to pair with your phone again. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Swipe left on your Amazfit watch face to open the Apps.
  2. Scroll up or down to find the Settings tab and tap on it.
  3. In the Settings menu, scroll all the way down and click on the System button.
  4. Now, tap on the Factory Reset option.
  5. A confirmation message will pop up. Click the tick button to confirm the reset.

Your watch will take a few moments to reset itself, and once it’s done, it should automatically display the QR code screen, ready for you to pair it with your phone again.

Method 2: Reconnect with Amazfit App

If resetting your watch doesn’t do the trick, don’t worry! There’s another way to get past the QR code screen. This method involves using the Amazfit app on your smartphone to reconnect with your watch. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Amazfit app on your phone.
  2. Instead of scanning the QR code, look for an option that says something like “Watch without QR code” or “Pair without QR code.”
  3. Tap on that option, and the app will start searching for your watch.
  4. Once your watch appears in the list of available devices, tap on it to initiate the pairing process.
  5. Your watch may prompt you to confirm the pairing by pressing a button or tapping on a tick icon. Go ahead and do that.

And voila! Your watch should now be connected to your phone, and you can bid farewell to that QR code screen.

A Personal Note

I remember when I first got my Amazfit watch, I was so excited to start using all its cool features. But wouldn’t you know it, I got stuck on the QR code screen right off the bat! I tried scanning the code with my phone multiple times, but nothing seemed to work.

Feeling frustrated, I turned to the internet for help and stumbled upon the reset method. I was a bit hesitant at first, thinking, “What if I lose all my data?” But then I realized, hey, I just got this watch, so there’s not much to lose anyway!

So, I took a deep breath and went through the reset process. And guess what? It worked like a charm! My watch restarted, displayed the QR code screen, and this time, my phone was able to scan it without any issues. I felt like a tech wizard!
