The following topics give you all the information you need to set up your device and Sprint service the first
time.
Your Gear S at a Glance
The following illustration outlines your device’s primary features.
About the Gear S
Connecting the Gear S to your smartphone allows you to check notifications, answer or make calls, view
and send messages, and more.
If the Gear S is not connected to the smartphone you can still use the standalone features via the Gear S
wireless connection:
●
Calling
●
Sending and receiving messages
For more information about Gear S connection modes, see Connection Modes .
Maintaining Water and Dust Resistance
This device is rated IP67 using the Ingress Protection rating system. The dust rating is 6 (highest level of
protection) and the water resistance rating is 7 (water resistant up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes).
Despite this classification, your device is not impervious to water damage in any situation. It is important
that all compartments are closed tightly.
Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device.
●
Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
Get Started
1
●
Do not expose the device to salt water or ionized water, or to water over 1 meter deep for more
than 30 minutes. If your device is exposed to salt water, wash the device with fresh water then
dry thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Otherwise, when it dries, salt may accumulate and block
the microphone, and speaker.
●
When drying off your device, be sure to pat the microphone (lower right side of screen), and
speaker (rear of device) with a clean, soft cloth to remove as much water as possible.
●
When making a call immediately after your device is wet, the microphone may have water in it
which may lower the volume that the other person will hear. After drying off the device, allow the
device to air-dry before making a call.
●
Always keep the USB Port clean and be careful to avoid damaging it.
Set Up Your Gear S
Before using your new Gear S, charge the battery and connect it to a smartphone.
Charge the Battery
Before using your Gear S for the first time, charge the battery. You can charge the Gear S by connecting
it to the charging dock and plugging the USB charger into an outlet.
If the battery is completely depleted, you won’t be able to turn on the Gear S immediately, even if the
charging dock is connected. Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before turning on the
Gear S.
While charging, some features are not available.
1. Connect the Gear S to the Charging dock, with the terminals facing each other.
2. Connect the USB charger to the USB port, and then plug the charging head into an electrical
outlet.
Get Started

3. After charging, disconnect the Gear S from the charging dock and unplug the USB charger from
the electrical outlet.
Caution: Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or cables
can cause damage. Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the Gear S. Any
damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.
About the Charging Dock
Use the charging dock to charge the battery in your Gear S. The charging dock also contains a battery.
Take care not to lose the dock.
●
To charge the Gear S, connect it to the charging dock.
●
The charging dock can be used as a backup battery. Simply connect it to your Gear S (no cable
needed).
●
The charging dock automatically charges while the Gear S is charging, or can be charged
independently without the Gear S.
About the Battery
Battery operating time is affected by device usage patterns and the condition of the battery.
Battery life can be reduced when multiple apps or features are running simultaneously. Also, even if the
device is not being used, battery life may be reduced.
Note: During charging, the Gear S may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the Gear S lifespan
or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger may stop charging. If the Gear S is not
charging properly, contact a Samsung Service Center.
Wear the Gear S
Your Gear S includes an adjustable strap.

Connect Gear S to a Smartphone
Connection Modes
There are several ways your Gear S can connect to a smartphone. The Gear S functionality depends on
the connection mode.
When you configure Gear S connection settings, they may affect the way your Gear S works with a
connected smartphone.

In Bluetooth connection mode, the Gear S is paired with the smartphone via Bluetooth.
While in Bluetooth connection mode, the Gear S will receive notifications and calls from the connected
smartphone and can use all of the Gear S and Samsung Gear app functions.

connected to the smartphone via the mobile network.
While connected remotely, the Gear S will receive notifications and calls from the smartphone and have
limited access to Samsung Gear Manager functions.
Gear Only
In Gear only mode, the Gear S is not connected to the smartphone, and is operating as a standalone
device.
While in Gear only mode, the Gear S will only send and receive notifications and calls from the Gear S
phone number, and will have no access to Samsung Gear Manager functions.
Pair Your Gear S to a Smartphone
The first time you turn on the Gear S, follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the
Samsung Gear Manager app on your smartphone. Then, pair the Gear S with the smartphone via
Bluetooth to establish a connection between the devices.

continue going to the Gear S voicemail until you turn off forwarding.

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, 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
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
Tools and Calendar
36
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.
Note:
●
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.

Be aware of following conditions before exercising 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

●
If you have just purchased or have reset the Gear, read the on-screen information about the app
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 you set the maximum heart rate to be
measured automatically, the Gear S will calculate it using “210 - (0.65 x age)”.
Caution: If you feel pain or discomfort while exercising, stop immediately and consult a medical
professional.

the impact on your fitness. Training goal levels are based on your physical profile and the heart rate
information recorded while you work out. Your training goal increases when you perform effective
exercise and the coaching feature uses the training goal 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 training goal level
based on your profile. As you exercise, it will analyze your training history and provide more personalized
guidance. A typical workout may start at a lower intensity and sharply increase in intensity towards the
