Hey all,

I just bought a sony NWZ Ws613. Very pleased with it. I thought That I could connect it with my TT Adventurer, but he is not able to see it. Do I something wrong or is it just not possible? Very annoying because it is such a sweet MP3. It would be nice that I connect them so While I run I can see what is playing, and I while I swim I can use the MP3. I dont like it to take my phone with me during sports. Can somebody help me please? :?

    Why would you need to connect this to the watch, since it has music built into it already? You can't use regular BT headphones while swimming as the signals do not travel through water, which is why they make headphones like this with a built in player and storage. It is essentially making the watch redundant for music playback. The watch is an MP3 player, it does not connect to other MP3 players and show what is playing, that is not its design or intention. And depending on which model you got, these headphones may or may not have BT built in anyway. Even if they do, there is no guarantee they will connect with the watch. If they can connect (connection tips below) you can use the watch to play music while running and the headphones for music while swimming, assuming the headphones allow you to switch back and forth and do not only play off the built-in player.

    Make sure the headphones are in pairing mode while on the clock screen and then press up to have the watch search for it (don't go into search mode on the watch first). On most headphones you need to press and hold the power button for an extended period to get into pairing (check the instructions for your headphones). Once they are paired you do not need to pair again, but make sure the headphones are turned on while on the clock screen and then press up to have the watch search for it (don't go into search mode on the watch first). This works for me every time. If I do it the other way and got to search first it often won’t find them. Finally, make sure you are not putting the headphones into pairing each time. On some models if you hold the power button for a second too long it will put it into pairing mode. For pairing purposes, leave the headphones sitting on the watch so they are as close as possible. And again, make sure you are in clock mode before going into pairing mode (just like when you turn them on to listen) and only press up once you have gotten the confirmation from the headphones that they are in pairing mode.

    I hope this helped answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.
