Before You Start Exercising
Although the Samsung Health application is a great
companion to your exercise routine, it is always best to
make sure you consult with your physician before
beginning any exercise regimen. 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:
l Heart disease; asthma or lung disease; diabetes,
or liver or kidney disease; arthritis.
Before beginning your exercise regimen check with
your doctor if you have symptoms suggestive of heart,
lung, or other serious disease, such as:
l Shortness of breath with mild exertion or at rest,
or when lying down or going to bed;
l Ankle swelling, especially at night;
l A heart murmur or a rapid or pronounced
heartbeat;
l Muscle pain when walking upstairs or up a hill
that goes away when you rest.
It is recommended that before engaging in an exercise
routine, you consult with your doctor or medical
practitioner. 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.
l Pain or discomfort in your chest, neck, jaw, or
arms during physical activity;
l Dizziness or loss of consciousness;

Maintaining Water and Dust
Resistance
CAUTION! To avoid electric shock and damage to your
device, do not charge device while it is wet or in an
area where it could get wet. Do not handle device,
charger or cords with wet hands while charging.
This device is rated IP68 using the Ingress Protection
rating system.
Your device has been tested in a controlled
environment and shown to be water and dust resistant
in certain circumstances (meets requirements of
classification IP68 as described by the international
standard IEC 60529 – Degrees of Protection provided
by Enclosures [IP Code]; test conditions: 15-35°C,
86-106 kPa, 5.0 feet, for 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.
Legal
225
Note: If any liquid is found to have entered your device
components or an internally sealed system, this
condition will void your device warranty.
Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the
device.
l Any device which uses accessible compartments
or ports that can be opened, should have these
sealed or closed tightly to prevent liquid from
entering the system.
l Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly
with a clean, soft cloth. If your device has gotten
wet, you should dry the inside of the charging port
before inserting a power connector to charge your
device. If the charging port is not fully dry, your
device may operate abnormally. For example, it
may charge more slowly or overheat.
Legal
l Do not expose the device to salt water or ionized
water, or to water over 5.0 feet deep for more
than 30 minutes. If your device is exposed to fresh
water, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. If
the device is exposed to any liquid other than
fresh water, rinse the device with fresh water
immediately and dry it thoroughly with a clean,
soft cloth. Failure to rinse the device in fresh
water and dry it as instructed may cause the
device to suffer from operability or cosmetic
issues.
l Water resistant based on IP68 rating, which tests
submersion in fresh water up to 5 feet for up to
30 minutes. If Device is exposed to fresh water,
dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth; if
exposed to liquid other than fresh water, rinse
with fresh water and dry as directed.
226
Warning! Liquid other than fresh water may enter the
device faster. Failure to rinse the device in fresh water
and dry it as instructed may cause the device to suffer
from operability or cosmetic issues.
l Do not expose the device to water at high
pressure.
l If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the
water and dust resistant features of the device
may be damaged.
Restricting Children’s Access to Your
Mobile Device
Your device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play
with it because they could hurt themselves and others,
damage the device, or make calls that increase your
device bill. Keep the device and all its parts and
accessories out of the reach of small children.
l To maintain the water-resistant and
dust-resistant features of your device, if an
S Pen is available for use, verify it is securely
inserted prior to any exposure to liquids.
l The touchscreen and other features may not work
properly if the device is used in water or in other
liquids.
