When fixing the odd issue or bug with the Huawei Watch GT 4, it can be very useful to know how to reset it.
The first thing to try is a simple restart, which turns the device off and on again. This could be all that's needed to help solve any problems that arise.
However, if you're still experiencing issues, you may have to perform a full reset - one that erases all the data on the watch. This will mean you'll need to set the watch up again, but it can help to resolve any lingering snags.
In this guide, we'll show you how to do both. It should allow you to get your watch working in no time.
Restart the Huawei Watch GT 4
This is the first port of call when troubleshooting, and simply turns the watch off and on again.
1. Locate the digital crown
Locate the watch's crown - the metal dial on the outside of the watch at 2 o'clock.
2. Press and hold the crown
Once you've located the crown, press it down and hold for about four seconds, or until the screen changes.
3. Select 'Restart'
Two options will appear on the screen - 'Restart' and 'Power off'. Choose the 'Restart' option by pressing on the screen.
Then, press 'Restart' again to confirm your choice.
You will see the Huawei logo appear on the screen, and the watch will turn back on again. Your device has now restarted.
Huawei Watch GT 4 factory reset
This will erase all your data from the watch, but it can sometimes be necessary if you're looking to pair it to another device or give it to somebody else, for example.
1. Press the crown
Just like when resetting your watch, you will first want to press the crown button, which is on the top left on the outside of the case. This should bring up a menu.
2. Find 'Settings'
Navigate to the bottom of the menu by twisting the crown, until you see a grey cog icon next to the word 'Settings'. Touch the word on the screen to select it.
3. Select 'System & updates'
Scroll to the bottom of the settings menu until you find 'System & updates'. Select this option.
4. Choose 'Reset'
Pick the 'Reset' option, and touch the blue tick on the right of the screen to confirm.
After a few moments, your watch should turn on again and will have returned to the factory settings.
You'll next need to pair it with an Android/iPhone and start from scratch.
