After successfully installing the app on the Samsung Galaxy S4,  turn on the Trakdot Smartwatch by pressing any button and then using Bluetooth 4.0 LE scan for pairing devices. On the Smartwatch you should be able to see the function display pairing mode and on the phone the name of the device to pairing e.g. Trakdot -#code number.


On the phone interface select the setting option function to choose the interface style you like.
