Hello Intouchdt,

Welcome to Apple Support Communities!

I can understand the need to pair your watch and be able to use it as soon as possible. The following guide provides detailed steps on how to pair your watch with your iPhone.

Set up your Apple Watch - Apple Support

This section demonstrates where to select the option to pair manually at the bottom of the screen if what you are experiencing continues:

Hold your iPhone over the animation

Then center the watch face in the viewfinder on your iPhone. Wait for a message to say that your Apple Watch is paired.

If you can't use the camera, tap Pair Apple Watch Manually, then follow the steps that appear.
