Risks and Benefits
The predominant benefit of the product is enabling of the monitoring and management of daily metabolic and lifestyle data in order to reach your activity and weight
goals. In addition to weight management, known benefits of increasing activity
levels include increased life expectancy, improved sleep, and enhanced appearance
and self perception.
Analysis and post market surveillance indicate that risks of using the products are
extremely low. No significant health risks have been identified. The most frequently
reported health risk, occurring in less than 1% of users, is a mild to severe skin irritation resulting from wearing the Armband. The issue is often resolved by following
proper wear and cleaning guidelines. Skin irritation may still occur for individuals
with highly sensitive skin or for those with a specific allergy to materials used in the
Armband and/or strap. However, it is best to discontinue use and consult a physician regarding skin irritations.
If you have a known metal allergy, consult your physician prior to using the
Armband. Read the instructions provided and review the Cautions section of this
manual before using the Armband.

Setup Instructions
Please refer to the Quick Start included in the package for instructions on how
to begin using the system. It only takes a few minutes to get set up and moving
toward a healthier lifestyle.
4. Wear the Armband no more than 23 hours a day.
Be sure to leave it off 1 hour per day.
5. Replace the strap if it has lost its elasticity.
Information on obtaining replacement parts can
be found in the Quick Start.
Armband Operating Instructions
Proper Wear and Cleaning
Wear your Armband on the back of the upper left arm (the tricep). To work properly, the BodyMedia logo must face upward towards the shoulder and the silver
sensors on the underside of the Armband will be in contact with your skin.
1. Be sure the upper left arm is clean, dry, and free
of lotion or oil then slide the Armband onto your
left arm.
2. Adjust the strap so that it fits comfortably, and
then secure the Velcro pull-tab. Please pull the
strap straight out and AWAY from your arm,
and NOT towards your chest to avoid pinching
the skin. Ensure that the sensors on the underside
of the Armband maintain continuous contact with
your skin and that the Armband does not slide
off your arm.
3. Do not secure the strap too tightly. You should be able to place two fingers
beneath the strap. Once the strap is adjusted to a comfortable fit, there is no
need to readjust the Velcro tab. Simply slide the Armband on and off your arm
by stretching the strap.

The Armband will turn on and begin collecting data within 10 minutes. Activation
is indicated by a series of audio tones. Please note that there is no power button on
the Armband.
To clean the Armband:
1. Gently wipe the side of the Armband that touches the skin with a soft cloth or
towel moistened with a mild soap and water.
2. Wipe with a clean damp cloth to remove any excess soap.
3. Use a dry, soft cloth or towel to completely dry before wearing it.
To clean the Armband strap:
1. Hand wash with mild soap and warm water, rinse, then air dry.
2. Machine drying may affect the performance and lifespan of the strap.
NOTE: Always disinfect the Armband and replace the Armband strap prior to use
by others.

Removing the Armband strap from the Armband monitor
You will need to remove the Armband from its strap to upload data and charge the
Armband, or to clean the Armband.
1. With the Armband logo facing upward, apply
continuous downward pressure to the right side
of the Armband Monitor until it separates from
the Armband strap.
2. To reattach to the strap, locate the USB port on the Armband, then align port
with the indentations on the left side of the strap. Apply upward pressure to the
right side of the Armband until it snaps into place.
To check if your Armband is ready to collect data, remove the Armband and press
the Armband’s Status button. The Status lights will indicate whether the Armband
is ready to collect data:
• Green (solid) = Armband is ready.
• Amber (slow flashing) = Less than 24 hours of battery life or memory
remain. Plug in the Armband to charge and upload data.
• Red (fast flashing) = Armband is not able to collect data.
