Impossible to connect GW6 to watch face studio 1.5.7


I just go the new GW6 and wanted to make some new watchfaces with WFS. Everything works fine until the moment where I have to run the watchface on my device .

I did the wireless debugging and the watch was connected to my pc (at least that’s what it said on the watch) but still on WFS the same message appears “Failed to pair a device” “Please need the data of the device or check your input”. I tried to connect my PC to my home WiFi then to my mobile hotspot, disconnected my watch from Bluetooth, tried everything I found on the web and sill nothing.

I really need your help guys!



Hey @caramelleeed . May I welcome You . Have you ever sent Faces to any watch from WFS before . The watch is connected to you Router not the PC . Your PC is connected to the samre WiFi . Do you have the Developer settings on your Watch ? Have you Switched on ADB Debugging ?
I am a Beginner on WFS I have a GW4 and use WFS 1.3.13 . I know that you will be connected soon . I have some notes on my Laptop I can send later . I find I have to check the Wireless connections on my Watch before every session of Uploading . However one the Connection is established it works like a Dream an usualy takes 15 seconds to get on my watch .

I’ve had some trouble getting my watch to show up in WFS too.

What have worked for me is to enable developer options as you need on the watch. Then enter wireless debugging in dev options. Click the add button in run on device in WFS. Then enter your ip of your watch and first port number in WFS. Then click add new device on your watch, and enter the code and second port in WFS. Then click connect in WFS, it should be successful.

However after this the watch still haven’t shown up for me. What seems to work then is to restart WFS, and then the watch shows up. I’ve even had the watch shows up as two options in WFS, duplicates, but doesn’t seem to cause any trouble.

From what I understand you need to do these steps for each session when you want to run on your device.

Have a look here

That worked for me.

Hey, the developers options are obviously on as well as ADB debugging. The issue that i have is that on the watch after I go through the pairing procedure (with the code and port number) it says that my computer is paired but on WFS an error message is sent that tells that there is an issue with the pairing (see my previous post).

So the watch says that th computer s paired, but the computer says that it didn’t managed to pair the watch.

I’m so lost

The only only further tip I can give is that I did not use WFS to do ANY of the pairing, just the watch itself and the adb commands on the PC command line. Once I’d paired and connected via adb, the watch appeared as a target when I selected “Run on device” in WFS.


When you go to run on the device you have to watch it and wait up to a minute

On Watch click on settings then developer option
Turn on ADB debugging and ok that
scroll down to where it says WirelessDebugging tap on it
wait few minutes and
write down the IP address followed by :xxxxx the port number

Then click on Pair with new Device (apparently you have to do this ever day )
it will have a pairing code
followed by the IP port and a different port number

Run on Device
fill in the IP address in the top
Fill in the first port number when you first turned on ADB Wireless deguggin
Fill in the Pairing code
Fill in the last port number when you paired the device

You can try running on watch now but you may have to ‘add the app’ so look for a notification on your watch I had to do this each day too.

Let me know if that doesn’t work. It may be a caching thing
