Battery charging tips and precautions
•• If there are obstructions between the Gear and the wireless charger dock, the Gear may not charge properly.
•• Prevent the Gear and the wireless charger from coming into contact with sweat, liquids, or dust.
•• If the battery is completely discharged, the Gear cannot be turned on immediately after being connected to the charger.
Allow a depleted battery to charge for a few minutes before turning on the Gear.
•• If you use multiple apps at once, the battery will drain quickly. To avoid losing power during a data transfer, always use these apps
after fully charging the battery.
•• Using a power source other than the charger, such as a computer, may result in a slower charging speed due to a lower electric
current.
•• If the Gear is being charged with other devices using a multi-charger, charging may take longer.
•• The Gear can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the battery.
•• If the Gear receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not function. If this happens, immediately
disconnect the Gear from the wireless charger dock and leave the device aside until another power connection can be found.
•• While charging, the Gear may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the Gear’s lifespan or performance. If the battery feels
hot to the touch during this charging process, remove the Gear from the charger and allow it to cool down before restarting the
charging process, or call 1-800-SAMSUNG (726-7864) to receive technical support.
•• If the Gear is not charging properly, take the Gear to a Samsung Service Center.
•• Avoid using a bent or damaged USB cable.

Basics
Maintaining Water and Dust Resistance
Water-resistant and dustproof based on IP68 rating, which tests submersion up to
5.0 feet for up to 30 minutes.
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.
Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device.
•• Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
•• 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.
•• Do not expose the device to water at high pressure.
•• If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the water and dust resistant features of the device may be damaged.
•• The touchscreen and other features may not work properly if the device is used in water or in other liquids.
