    Hello OnePlus TV users! This is a guide on how to easily pair your OnePlus Watch to your OnePlus TV with some simple instructions, and explaining some basic functions.
    • Power on your TV and navigate to the "TV Connect" app on your watch using the top button on the right edge, and scrolling down in the app list.

    • Open the TV Connect app and wait for it to search nearby devices, the OnePlus TV should show up. If not, restart both devices and try again.

    • After selecting your OnePlus TV from the list, you should get a bluetooth pairing prompt on the TV, use your remote to click "Pair"

    • And that's all paired up! Now I'll show you the watch interface and describe how a few things work.
    • The first interface you'll see is a trackpad, use the arrow keys to navigate. The center button is multi-functional, the middle button can be tapped once to select, and a double tap works like a back button to go back from the interface you were in.

    • Swiping over to the left page gives you the power control which toggles between Sleep and On state. Keep in mind, the app will not work if the TV is in the "power off" state, for that you'll need to turn it on with the remote or the soft button below the TV.

    • On the right page, we have a few more controls, a button to take you to the Android TV home page, volume controls, menu, and the connect app settings button.
    • The menu button will only work with apps having contextual menus and to bring up the quick menu in other inputs like HDMI.
    • Within the settings, there are two smart features which enhance the experience with your TV. "Smart volume control" will automatically reduce TV volume when an incoming call is detected, and when the watch detects you're asleep, the TV will dim the brightness automatically using "Sleep perception"
    • You can also unpair the TV from this menu.

    I hope this basic guide was helpful in understanding connection and usage of the OnePlus Watch with your TV, this is a great step in the IoT Future!
