I’m having an issue pairing my Android phone with the Lifeclock One.

Unfortunately Android comes in many variations and some devices don’t behave well with Bluetooth devices. When you are having connection issues on Android, you will need to perform a complete reset. Here are the full instructions to reset your Android phone and Lifeclock One. This process has been tested on several Android 6.x, 7.x and 8.x and works every time.

  1. On your Lifeclock One, perform a factory reset – press the bottom button five times, then the top button three times – the watch will say ‘RESET’ – press the bottom button to initiate the factory reset. Your Lifeclock One will vibrate and you will see the welcome message scroll across the screen.
  2. On your Android phone, uninstall the Lifeclock One app – do a long press/tap and drag it to the ‘Uninstall’ icon.
  3. On your phone, go to Settings, Bluetooth, select ‘Lifeclock XXXXX’ and remove/forget the connection. This removes the Bluetooth pairing on your phone.
  4. On your phone, turn Bluetooth off then on.
  5. Now restart your Android phone (i.e. shut it down, then turn it back on). This step is critical on several Android devices.
  6. When your Android phone starts back up, go back to the Google Play store, search for the Lifeclock One app and reinstall it – go through the setup process and at the end you will see a screen prompting you to pair.
  7. Go back to Settings -> Bluetooth, search for new devices and you will see an entry called ‘Lifeclock XXXXX’ – tap on that entry to pair. Your Lifeclock One will say ‘PAIRED’
  8. Return to the Android app and follow the prompts to complete the process.
