Assemble Your Device

This section helps you to assemble your device.

Install the SIM Card and a

(PIN), available optional services, and other features.

Warning

: Please be careful when handling the

SIM card to avoid damaging it. Keep all SIM cards out of reach of small children.

You can also install an optional microSD ™ or microSDHC

memory card (not included) to add more memory space to your device.

Note

: To improve performance and reliability with high-definition video recording and playback, it is recommended you use a memory card (SD card) that is both rated as at least a Class 10 and provides a high read speed.

Caution

: Exercise care when using the removal tool to eject the internal SIM card/Memory card tray.

1. Insert the removal tool into the hole on the SIM card/Memory card tray, and then push until the tray pops out.

2. Place the SIM card on the tray.

Make sure that the card’s gold contacts face down into the device and that the card is positioned as shown.

3. Place the memory card on the tray with the gold contacts facing down.

4. Slide the SIM card/Memory card tray back into the slot.

Important

: To prevent water and dust from entering the device, remove any dust on the O-Ring and ensure that the SIM card tray is closed tightly.

Caution

: If the SIM card is not inserted correctly, the device cannot detect it. Reorient the card and place it back into the slot if the SIM card is not detected.

Getting Started 4 Assemble Your Device

Maintaining Water and

Dust Resistance

Note

: 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, such as ocean waves or a waterfall.

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.

Charge the Battery

Your device is powered by a rechargeable, standard

Li-Ion battery. A USB charger (charging head and

USB cable) is included with the device for charging the battery from any standard outlet.

The battery comes partially charged. A fully discharged battery requires up to four hours of charge time. You can use the device while charging.

Note

: It is recommended you fully charge the battery before using your device for the first time.

Note

: For fastest charging times, use the Adaptive

Fast Charging charger that came with your device.

This charger provides faster charging only when connected to devices that support Adaptive Fast

Charging.

Caution

: Use only charging devices and batteries approved by Samsung

. Samsung accessories are designed to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause damage.

1. Insert the USB cable into the USB charger/

Accessory port.

2. Connect the USB cable to the charging head, and then plug the charging head into a standard outlet.

3. Unplug the charging head from the outlet and remove the USB cable from the device when charging is complete.

Note

: This device is also compatible with wireless charging devices approved by Samsung, which are sold separately.

Getting Started 5 Assemble Your Device

When to Charge the Battery

When the battery is low and only a few minutes of operation remain, the device sounds a warning tone at regular intervals.

In this condition, your device conserves its remaining battery power by dimming the screen.

When the battery level becomes too low, the device automatically turns off.

For a quick check of your battery level:

View the battery charge indicator located in the top right corner of your device’s display. A solid color ( ) indicates a full charge.

You can also choose to display a percentage value. Viewing a percentage value can provide a better idea of the remaining charge on the battery. For more information, see

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.

Finally, 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 exercised for three months or more;

You are overweight or obese;

You have high blood pressure or high cholesterol;

You have impaired glucose tolerance, also called prediabetes.

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.
