Garmin Watch App

With the new Nuki Garmin Watch App (Beta) you can open your door from your wrist!

Note: The development of this new feature is still in progress, therefore the new feature is shown as a beta feature in the app. However, it is already possible to use the main locking actions via Garmin Watches for Smart Lock, Opener and Smart Door.

Requirements and setup

The Nuki Garmin Watch App is available for Android and iOS users in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and French.

To be able to control your Nuki device via a Garmin Watch, please follow these steps:

  1. Make sure the Garmin Watch App is installed on your smartphone.
  2. Open the Garmin Connect IQ Store and install the Nuki app on your Garmin Watch.
  3. Open the Nuki app on your smartphone and tap on the menu in the upper left corner. Now select "Connect Garmin Watch". The connection to your Watch will be established.
  4. Afterwards all your Nuki devices are displayed.
  5. Select the device you want to control with your Garmin Watch from the device list. Note that you can control up to three of your Nuki devices with your Watch.


There are a few things to keep in mind when you want to control your Nuki device with a Garmin Watch. Every action you select is communicated via Bluetooth to your smartphone and from your smartphone to the Nuki device. A direct communication between your Garmin Watch and the Nuki device is not possible. For security reasons, actions for Smart Lock or Smart Door that you trigger via your watch are only sent via Bluetooth. This way we make sure that you are close to your Nuki device and the door cannot be opened unintentionally. The Nuki Opener is an exception to this rule, as commands can be sent via Bluetooth as well as via internet.

To avoid sources of error, always check if:

  • the Garmin Watch App and the Nuki app are installed on your smartphone. Only if this is the case, the menu item "Connect Garmin Watch" is displayed in the menu of the Nuki app.
  • you have already installed the Nuki app on your Watch via the Garmin Connect IQ Store.
  • the Nuki app is active in the background. To perform actions via Garmin Watch, the Nuki app has to be accessible and thus at least open in the background on your smartphone. Check the settings of your smartphone and correct them if necessary.
  • Bluetooth is activated.
  • Garmin Watch and smartphone are within Bluetooth range.
  • the smartphone is within Bluetooth range of the Smart Lock when you select an action.
