Before You Start Exercising
This app can be used to monitor your exercise. While
moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, is safe for
most people, health experts suggest that you talk with your
doctor before you start an exercise program, particularly if
you have any of the following conditions:
• Heart disease;
• Asthma or lung disease;
• Diabetes, or liver or kidney disease;
• Arthritis.
You should also check with your doctor if you have symptoms
suggestive of heart, lung, or other serious disease, such as:
• Pain or discomfort in your chest, neck, jaw, or arms during
physical activity;
• Dizziness or loss of consciousness;
• Shortness of breath with mild exertion or at rest, or when lying
down or going to bed;
• Ankle swelling, especially at night;
• A heart murmur or a rapid or pronounced heartbeat;
• Muscle pain when walking upstairs or up a hill that goes away
when you rest.
42
Finally, the American College of Sports Medicine
recommends that you see your doctor before engaging in
vigorous exercise if two or more of the following apply:
• You are a man older than age 45 or a woman older than age 55;
• You have a family history of heart disease before age 55;
• You smoke or quit smoking in the past six months;
• You have not exercised for three months or more;
• You are overweight or obese;
• You have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
• You have impaired glucose tolerance, also called pre-diabetes.
When in Doubt - Check it Out
If you are unsure of your health status, have several health
problems, or are pregnant, you should speak with your
doctor before starting a new exercise program. Working with
your doctor ahead of time is a good way to plan an exercise
program that is right and safe for you. Consider it the first
step on your path to physical fitness.

attempt to change the form of your battery. Do not put a high
degree of pressure on the battery. This can cause leakage or an
internal shortcircuit, resulting in overheating.
• Do not let the GALAXY come in contact with liquids. Liquids
can get into the GALAXY's circuits, leading to corrosion. Even
when the GALAXY appears to be dry and appears to operate
normally, the circuitry could slowly corrode and pose a safety
hazard. If the GALAXY and/or battery get wet, have them checked
by your service provider or contact Samsung, even if they appear
to be working properly.
• Do not place your battery in or near a heat source. Excessive
heating can damage the GALAXY or the battery and could cause
the GALAXY or the battery to explode. Do not dry a wet or damp
battery with an appliance or heat source such as a microwave
oven, hair dryer, iron, or radiator. Avoid leaving your GALAXY in
your car in high temperatures.
• Do not dispose of the GALAXY or the battery in a fire. The
• Avoid dropping the GALAXY. Dropping the GALAXY, especially on
a hard surface, can potentially cause damage to the GALAXY. Do
not carry device in your back pocket, which could damage the
device if you fall. If you suspect damage to the GALAXY or battery,
take it to a service center for inspection.
• Never use any charger, outlet, or battery that is damaged in
any way.
• Do not allow the battery to touch metal objects. Accidental
short circuiting can occur when a metallic object (coin, key,
jewelry, clip, or pen) causes a direct connection between the +
and - terminals of the battery (metal strips on the battery), for
example when you carry a spare battery in a pocket or bag. Short
circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or the object
causing the short circuiting.
GALAXY or the battery may explode when overheated.
• Do not handle a damaged or leaking battery. Do not let
leaking battery fluid come in contact with your eyes, skin or
clothing. For safe disposal options, contact your nearest Samsung

Care and Maintenance
Your mobile device is a product of superior design and
craftsmanship and should be treated with care. The
suggestions below will help you fulfill any warranty
obligations and allow you to enjoy this product for many
years:
Keep your Samsung Mobile Device away from:
Liquids of any kind
Keep the mobile device dry. Precipitation, humidity, and
liquids contain minerals that will corrode electronic
circuits.
56
If the mobile device does get wet, do not accelerate
drying with the use of an oven, microwave, or dryer,
because this may damage the mobile device and could
cause a fire or explosion. Do not use the mobile device
with a wet hand. Doing so may cause an electric shock to
you or damage to the mobile device. Do not wear the
device when the straps are wet. Wet straps can cause
skin irritations. Dry the straps first. If you experience skin
irritation when wearing the device, stop wearing the
device and consult a physician.
Extreme heat or cold
Avoid temperatures below 0°C / 32°F or above 45°C /
113°F.
Microwaves
Do not try to dry your mobile device in a microwave oven.
Doing so may cause a fire or explosion.
Dust and Dirt
Do not expose your mobile device to dust, dirt, or sand.
Cleaning solutions
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean the mobile device. Wipe it with a soft
cloth slightly dampened in a mild soap-and-water
solution.
Shock or vibration
Do not drop, knock, or shake the mobile device. Rough
handling can break internal circuit boards. Do not bite or
suck on the device or otherwise insert the device into the
eyes, ears, or mouth.
Paint
Do not paint the mobile device. Paint can clog the
device’s moving parts or ventilation openings and prevent
proper operation.
Responsible Listening
Caution! Avoid potential hearing loss.
Damage to hearing occurs when a person is exposed to loud
sounds over time. The risk of hearing loss increases as
sound is played louder and for longer durations.
Prolonged exposure to loud sounds (including music) is the
most common cause of preventable hearing loss. Some
scientific research suggests that using portable audio
devices, such as portable music players and cell phones, at
high volume settings for long durations may lead to
permanent noise-induced hearing loss. This includes the use
of headphones (including headsets, earbuds, and Bluetooth®
or other wireless devices).
Exposure to very loud sound has also been associated in
some studies with tinnitus (a ringing in the ear),
hypersensitivity to sound, and distorted hearing. Individual
susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss and potential
hearing problem varies. Additionally, the amount of sound
produced by a portable audio device varies depending on the
nature of the sound, the device settings, and the headphones
that are used. As a result, there is no single volume setting
that is appropriate for everyone or for every combination of
sound, settings, and equipment.
You should follow some common sense recommendations
when using any portable audio device:
• Always turn the volume down before plugging the earphones into
an audio source.
Health and Safety Information
57
• Set the volume in a quiet environment and select the lowest
volume at which you can hear adequately.
• Be aware that you can adapt to higher volume settings over time,
not realizing that the higher volume may be harmful to your
hearing.
• When using headphones, turn the volume down if you cannot
hear the people speaking near you or if the person sitting next to
you can hear what you are listening to.
• Do not turn the volume up to block out noisy surroundings. If you
choose to listen to your portable device in a noisy environment,
use noise-cancelling headphones to block out background
environmental noise. By blocking background environment noise,
noise cancelling headphones should allow you to hear the music
at lower volumes than when using earbuds.
• Limit the amount of time you listen. As the volume increases, less
time is required before you hearing could be affected.
• Avoid using headphones after exposure to extremely loud noises,
such as rock concerts, that might cause temporary hearing loss.
Temporary hearing loss might cause unsafe volumes to sound
normal.
58
• Do not listen at any volume that causes you discomfort. If you
experience ringing in your ears, hear muffled speech, or
experience any temporary hearing difficulty after listening to your
portable audio device, discontinue use and consult your doctor.

What are the limits on SAMSUNG’s liability?
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SETS OUT THE FULL EXTENT OF
SAMSUNG’S RESPONSIBILITIES, AND THE EXCLUSIVE
REMEDY REGARDING THE PRODUCTS.
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT
LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY
AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO
THE DURATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. IN NO EVENT
SHALL SAMSUNG BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES IN EXCESS OF
THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT OR FOR, WITHOUT
LIMITATION, COMMERCIAL LOSS OF ANY SORT; LOSS OF
USE, TIME, DATA, REPUTATION, OPPORTUNITY, GOODWILL,
PROFITS OR SAVINGS; INCONVENIENCE; INCIDENTAL,
SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; OR
DAMAGES ARISING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
PRODUCT. SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY
LASTS, OR THE DISCLAIMER OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS
AND DISCLAIMERS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
SAMSUNG MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, AS TO
THE QUALITY, CAPABILITIES, OPERATIONS, PERFORMANCE
66
OR SUITABILITY OF ANY THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE OR
EQUIPMENT USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE PRODUCT, OR
THE ABILITY TO INTEGRATE ANY SUCH SOFTWARE OR
EQUIPMENT WITH THE PRODUCT, WHETHER SUCH
THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE OR EQUIPMENT IS INCLUDED WITH
THE PRODUCT DISTRIBUTED BY SAMSUNG OR OTHERWISE.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE QUALITY, CAPABILITIES,
OPERATIONS, PERFORMANCE AND SUITABILITY OF ANY
SUCH THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE OR EQUIPMENT RESTS
SOLELY WITH THE USER AND THE DIRECT VENDOR, OWNER
OR SUPPLIER OF SUCH THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE OR
EQUIPMENT.
Nothing in the Product instructions or information shall be
construed to create an express warranty of any kind with
respect to the Products. No agent, employee, dealer,
representative or reseller is authorized to modify or extend
this Limited Warranty or to make binding representations or
claims, whether in advertising, presentations or otherwise,
on behalf of SAMSUNG regarding the Products or this Limited
Warranty.
This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you
may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
What is the procedure for resolving disputes?
ALL DISPUTES WITH SAMSUNG ARISING IN ANY WAY FROM
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE SALE, CONDITION OR
PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCTS SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION,
AND NOT BY A COURT OR JURY.
Any such dispute shall not be combined or consolidated with
a dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s Product or
claim, and specifically, without limitation of the foregoing,
shall not under any circumstances proceed as part of a class
action. The arbitration shall be conducted before a single
arbitrator, whose award may not exceed, in form or amount,
the relief allowed by the applicable law. The arbitration shall
be conducted according to the American Arbitration
Association (AAA) Commercial Arbitration Rules applicable to
consumer disputes. This arbitration provision is entered
pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The laws of the State
of Texas, without reference to its choice of laws principles,
shall govern the interpretation of the Limited Warranty and all
disputes that are subject to this arbitration provision. The
arbitrator shall decide all issues of interpretation and
application of this arbitration provision and the Limited
Warranty.
For any arbitration in which your total damage claims,
exclusive of attorney fees and expert witness fees, are
$5,000.00 or less (“Small Claim”), the arbitrator may, if you
prevail, award your reasonable attorney fees, expert witness
fees and costs as part of any award, but may not grant
SAMSUNG its attorney fees, expert witness fees or costs
unless it is determined that the claim was brought in bad
faith. In a Small Claim case, you shall be required to pay no
more than half of the total administrative, facility and
arbitrator fees, or $50.00 of such fees, whichever is less, and
SAMSUNG shall pay the remainder of such fees.
Administrative, facility and arbitrator fees for arbitrations in
which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees
and expert witness fees, exceed $5,000.00 (“Large Claim”)
shall be determined according to AAA rules. In a Large Claim
case, the arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party, or
apportion among the parties, reasonable attorney fees,
expert witness fees and costs. Judgment may be entered on
the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction.
This arbitration provision also applies to claims against
SAMSUNG’s employees, representatives and affiliates if any
such claim arises from the Product’s sale, condition or
performance.

Any such dispute shall not be combined or consolidated with any
other person's or entity's claim or dispute, and specifically,
without limitation of the foregoing, shall not under any
circumstances proceed as part of a class action. The arbitration
shall be conducted before a single arbitrator, whose award may
not exceed, in form or amount, the relief allowed by the
applicable law. The arbitration shall be conducted according to

Arbitration Rules applicable to consumer disputes. This

Act. The laws of the State of Texas, without reference to its
choice of laws principles, shall govern the interpretation of the
EULA and all disputes that are subject to this arbitration
74
provision. The arbitrator shall decide all issues of interpretation
and application of this arbitration provision and the EULA. For any
arbitration in which your total damage claims, exclusive of
attorney fees and expert witness fees, are $5,000.00 or less
("Small Claim"), the arbitrator may, if you prevail, award your
reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and costs as part
of any award, but may not grant Samsung its attorney fees,
expert witness fees or costs unless it is determined that the claim
was brought in bad faith. In a Small Claim case, you shall be
required to pay no more than half of the total administrative,
facility and arbitrator fees, or $50.00 of such fees, whichever is
less, and Samsung shall pay the remainder of such fees.
Administrative, facility and arbitrator fees for arbitrations in
which your total damage claims, exclusive of attorney fees and
expert witness fees, exceed $5,000.00 ("Large Claim") shall be
determined according to AAA rules. In a Large Claim case, the
arbitrator may grant to the prevailing party, or apportion among
the parties, reasonable attorney fees, expert witness fees and
costs. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator's award in any
court of competent jurisdiction. This arbitration provision also
applies to claims against Samsung's employees, representatives
