Health Management Applications
Use the pedometer, sleep, exercise, and heart rate applications for leisure, well-being and fitness purposes.
When the Gear™ Fit is synced with a compatible S Health application, you can use additional features. The
additional features include, checking your physical condition, exercise records, and more.
Note: 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 program.
Consulting with your doctor ahead of time is a good way to plan an exercise program that is right and safe for
you.

Heart rate sensor
Important! Remove the protective plastic from the heart rate measurement sensor before taking measurements.
Section 4: Applications
44
●● Pedometer, Sleep, Exercise, and Heart rate are intended for leisure, well-being and fitness purposes
only and are not intended for medical use.
●● The heart rate figures may not be accurate depending on measurement conditions and surroundings.
Take heart rate measurements when you are seated and relaxed.
●● Water-resistant and dustproof based on the IP67 Rating, which tests submersion up to 1 meter for up
to 30 minutes. Not shockproof. Cases must be tightly closed.
●● The accuracy of the heart rate sensor may be diminished depending on skin condition, or
measurement conditions and surroundings.
●● Do not look directly at the heart rate sensor’s lights. Doing so may impair your vision.
●● If your device becomes hot to the touch, please remove it until it cools. Exposing skin to a hot
surface of the device for a long time may cause skin burn.
●● If heart rate measurement is not working properly, adjust the position of the Gear™ Fit on your wrist.
For example, move the Gear™ Fit right, left, up, or down on your wrist to adjust the position of the
heart measurement sensor. Or, wear the Gear™ Fit with the heart rate sensor firmly against the inside
of your wrist.
●● If the heart rate sensor is dirty, wipe the sensor and try again.
45
Sleep
Use this application to monitor your sleep patterns and record how much sleep you get by detecting body
movements while you sleep. You can transfer the records to the connected mobile device.
Before using this application
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:
●● If you have just purchased or have reset the Gear™ Fit, read the on-screen information about the
application.
●● The Sleep feature records how much sleep you get by detecting and recording the duration of body
movements. Also, it records each instance when the Gear™ Fit detects that there has been no body
movement for one minute. To record body movement durations, a sleeping period must be set. The
sleeping period can be set and measured in automatic or manual mode.
●● In manual mode, the user should record the time by pressing a button at bedtime and when the
user wakes up. In automatic mode, the Gear™ Fit automatically detects the user’s sleep pattern and
records the time.
●● The Sleep feature can record sleep cycles twice or more in one 24 hour period. In manual mode,
all sleep time that is detected within the designated period is recorded as the total period of sleep.
In automatic mode, the longest duration detected within the 24 hour period is recorded as the total
period of sleep. Short durations of sleep that last less than 2 hours are not detected and if the user
wakes up for less than 30 minutes during the period it is recorded as constant sleep.
