My friend purchased a new phone and during the pairing process her watch changed language to German. How do you reset it to English. Is a hard reset the only option?

@Alfsdad: It is only possible to change the input language via the Watch settings, therefore a hard reset might be her best bet. If the phone or watch was intended for use outside the UK, potentially in Germany, then the pairing process may have triggered the change in language.

My thoughts entirely. It's ok buying cheap on the internet (eBay etc) but you have no idea where the item was intended for use. She also made a big mistake in not backing the device up as well. if had down it could have been reinstated.

many thanks for your thoughts.

sorted. the watch was in flight mode and not connected to anything so could not communicate with the phone or the Galaxy Store or Samsung.
