This is how you set up Family Configuration with watchOS 7

Family Setup, also known as Family Setup, is a new feature in watchOS 7. Family Setup allows you to pair your child’s Apple Watch or an older family member with your own iPhone. That way, not everyone with a Watch needs to have their own iPhone.

Family Setup only works on an Apple Watch Series 4 or later with watchOS 7. To enable Family Setup:

  1. Put on the new watch and press and hold the side button to turn on the watch;
  2. Hold the Apple Watch close to your iPhone until the message ‘Use your iPhone to configure this Apple Watch’ appears. Tap ‘Continue’;
  3. Tap ‘Set up for a family member’ and tap ‘Continue’;
  4. Hold your iPhone over the Apple Watch to scan the animation showing on your Watch;
  5. Optionally, set a passcode, then choose which family member will use the watch. Is this not listed yet? Then tap Add New Family Member and enter his or her Apple ID information.

You can then set rules for the Apple Watch. For example, you can set whether you must give permission for purchases via the smartwatch. In addition, you can add the Watch to your iPhone subscription, if it supports Family configuration.

Finally, you can enable other features that are part of Family Setup. This is how you set up Siri, SOS emergency notifications, or Activity. In addition, you can activate the School time function here: here you set the school times for your child so that they are not distracted by your Apple Watch.
