Continue reading below for all the details.
Charge your smartwatch
It's better to make sure your smartwatch is charged. You can charge it using any USB port (of your PC for example), or any standard USB charger. The charging port of the fitness tracker is hidden in the lower strap, so you'll have to remove this strap to find the charging port.
Plug your watch in your charger, and it should vibrate 3 times. If nothing happens, plug it in the reverse way. A full charge should be done in 1 hour.
Install the smartwatch app
First, find the 'JYou' app in the Apple App Store or in the Google Play store, and install it on your phone.
Here are the links for the app in the stores:
Connect your smartwatch to your phone
Now that you have the phone app installed, and your smartwatch charged, turn it on by pressing the front watch button during a few seconds.
Make sure Bluetooth is activated and start the JYou app on your phone.
You do not need a login to use the app, simple click on the 'Over login' button as seen below (yes there is a translation error in the current app version, It should read 'without login') :
You can go now to the 'settings' and click on the 'binding equipment' menu:
Click on the double arrows on the top to refresh the view, and you should see your watch appear as 'Y5-xxxx'. Click on it and it should appear in the connected device list.
Congratulations, your smart watch is now synchronized to your phone!

In the app click on 'status', 'sleep', 'sport' or 'data' to show your current activity status, and historical data.
In the settings part, you can enable additional features, like alarms, message notifications, or the ability to remotely take a photo on your phone from your smartwatch.
