Maintaining water and dust resistance
The device may be damaged if water or dust enters the device. Follow these tips carefully to
prevent damage to the device and to maintain the water- and dust-resistant performance of
the device.
• Do not immerse the device in water deeper than 1 m and keep it submerged for more
than 30 minutes.
• Do not expose the device to water moving with force, such as water running from a tap,
ocean waves, or waterfalls.
• If the device or your hands are wet, dry them thoroughly before handling the device.
• If the device is exposed to freshwater, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. If the
device is exposed to any liquid other than freshwater, rinse the device with freshwater
immediately and dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Failure to rinse the device
in freshwater and dry it as instructed may cause the device to suffer from operability
or cosmetic issues.
• If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the water- and dust-resistant features of
the device may be damaged.
• If the device has been immersed in water or the microphone or the speaker is wet,
sound may not be heard clearly during a call. Ensure that the microphone or the speaker
is clean and dry by wiping it with a dry cloth.
• The touch screen and other features may not work properly if the device is used in water
or in other liquids.
• Your device has been tested in a controlled environment and shown to be water- and
dust-resistant in certain circumstances (meets requirements of classification IP67 as
described by the international standard IEC 60529 - Degrees of Protection provided by
Enclosures [IP Code]; test conditions: 15 - 35 °C, 86 - 106 kPa, 1 metre, for 30 minutes).
Despite this classification, your device is not impervious to water damage in any
situation.

Applications
Health Management Applications
Use the pedometer, sleep, exercise, and heart rate applications to monitor and manage your
health and physical condition.
When the Gear is synced with a compatible S Health application, you can use additional
features. The additional features include checking your physical condition and exercise
records, and more.
Pedometer, Sleep, Exercise, and Heart Rate are intended for leisure, well-being and
fitness purposes only and are not intended for medical use. Before using these
applications, read the instructions carefully. Consult a medical professional if you
experience any health problems or need medical assistance.
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 programme, 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
41
Applications
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 exercise for three months or more.
• You are overweight or obese.
• You have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
• You have impaired glucose tolerance, also call 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.
Wearing the Gear
When measuring your heart rate, wear the Gear snugly on your arm above your wrist as
shown in the figure below. Do not fasten the Gear too tightly.
<Rear>
Heart rate sensor
42
Applications
• The accuracy of the heart rate sensor may be diminished depending on
measurement conditions and surroundings.
• Use the HR feature only for measuring your heart rate.
• Do not look directly at the heart rate sensor’s lights. Doing so may impair your vision.
Please make sure children do not look directly at the lights.
• Cold ambient temperatures may affect your measurement; during winter or cold
weather, keep yourself warm when checking your heart rate.
• Take heart rate measurements when you are seated and relaxed. Do not move your
body while taking heart rate measurements. Doing so may cause your heart rate to
be recorded inaccurately.
• If you receive a reading that is very different from your expected heart rate, rest for
30 minutes and then measure again.
• Smoking or consuming alcohol before taking measurements may cause your heart
rate to be different from your normal heart rate.
• Do not talk, yawn, or breathe deeply while taking heart rate measurements. Doing
so may cause your heart rate to be recorded inaccurately.
• Because the heart rate sensor uses light to approximate heart rate, its accuracy may
vary due to physical factors that affect light absorption and reflection, such as blood
circulation/blood pressure, skin condition and location and concentration of blood
vessels. In addition, if your heart rate is extremely high or low, measurements may be
inaccurate.
• Users with thin wrists may receive inaccurate heart rate measurements when the
device is loose, causing the light to be reflected unevenly. If heart rate measurement
is not working properly, adjust the position of the device’s heart rate sensor to the
right, left, up, or down on your wrist, or turn the device so the heart rate sensor sits
firmly against the inside of your wrist.
• If the heart rate sensor is dirty, wipe the sensor and try again. Obstructions
between the device’s strap and your wrist, such as body hair, dirt, or other objects
may prevent the light from reflecting evenly. Please make sure you remove such
obstructions before use.
• If your device becomes hot to the touch, remove it until it cools. Exposing skin to a
hot surface of the device for a long time may cause skin burn.

The connected mobile device’s GPS feature is used to check information, such as
altitude and speed, when you are cycling or hiking. Ensure that the Gear and the
mobile device are connected at all times while using this feature.
In cold weather conditions:
• Avoid using the device in cold weather. If possible, use the device indoors.
• If you use the device outside in cold weather, cover the Gear with your sleeves before
using it.
• Measure your heart rate before you start to exercise. If you measure your heart rate
during exercise, measurements may be inaccurate.
• If you have just purchased or have reset the Gear, read the on-screen information about
the application and create your profile. When creating a profile, you can register your
maximum heart rate either automatically or manually.
The maximum heart rate is the fastest heart rate an individual can achieve through
exercise. If you know your maximum heart rate, enter it manually. If the device is set to
register the heart rate automatically, the Gear will calculate it using ‘210 - 0.65 x age’.

Using the coaching feature while exercising in running mode
Use the personalised coaching feature to exercise safely and effectively. You will receive realtime coaching advice that leads you through a safe and effective workout that keeps you fit.
About the coaching feature
The coaching feature includes Firstbeat technology to provide personalised exercise
guidance. Firstbeat uses Training Effect (TE) analysis that measures the accumulated physical
load during a workout and assesses the impact on your fitness. TE levels are based on your
physical profile and the heart rate information recorded while you work out. Your TE level
increases when you perform effective exercise and the coaching feature uses the TE to
provide you with feedback.
The feedback is provided by the feature via prompts, such as ‘speed up’, ‘keep up this
pace’, and ‘slow down’. When you first start to use the coaching feature, it will estimate an
appropriate TE level based on your profile. As you exercise, it will analyse your training history
and provide more personalised guidance. A typical workout may start at a lower intensity and
sharply increase in intensity towards the end.
Visit www.firstbeat.fi/te for more information.
The Gear measures your heart rate with the heart rate measurement sensor. This
feature may not work properly if the heart rate sensor is exposed to excessive sweat
or its position is changed during exercise.
For the best coaching results, use the coaching feature while you exercise indoors.
50
Applications
1 On the Home screen, tap Exercise → Running.
2 Tap and tick Coaching.
Tap Coaching to set TE, duration, and maximum heart rate.
The following describes each TE level:
• Easy: Maintain general health and improve your endurance.
• Moderate: Maintain your basal fitness level and improve your cardiovascular
endurance.
• Improving: Improve your basal fitness level and cardiovascular endurance.
• If you exercise for a shorter duration than that designated for the TE, the exercise
intensity will increase to achieve the TE.
• If you feel pain or discomfort while exercising, stop immediately and consult a
medical professional.

Troubleshooting
Before contacting a Samsung Service Centre, please attempt the following solutions. Some
situations may not apply to your Gear.
Your Gear does not turn on
When the battery is completely discharged, your Gear will not turn on. Charge the battery
completely before turning on the Gear.
The touch screen responds slowly or improperly
• If you attach a protective cover or optional accessories to the touch screen, the touch
screen may not function properly.
• If you are wearing gloves, if your hands are not clean while touching the touch screen,
or if you tap the screen with sharp objects or your fingertips, the touch screen may
malfunction.
• The touch screen may malfunction in humid conditions or when exposed to water.
• Restart your Gear to clear any temporary software bugs.
• Ensure that your Gear software is upgraded to the latest version.

Your Gear freezes or has fatal errors
If your Gear freezes or hangs, you may need to close applications and turn on the Gear to
regain functionality. If your Gear is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold the Power button
for more than 7 seconds to reboot.
If this does not solve the problem, perform a factory data reset. On the Home screen, tap
Settings → Reset Gear → OK. Before performing the factory data reset, remember to make
back-up copies of all important data stored on the Gear.
If the problem is still not resolved, contact a Samsung Service Centre.
