Maintaining Water and Dust

Resistance

This device is rated IP67 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 IP67 as described by the international standard IEC 60529 -

Degrees of Protection provided by Enclosures

[IP Code]; test conditions: 15-35°C, 86-106 kPa, 1.0 meters, 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.

Note: If any liquid is found to have entered your device components or an internally sealed system, this condition will void your device warranty.

19

Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device.

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.

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 1.0 meters 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. [071516]

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 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.

70

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

71 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.

Measuring Your Heart Rate

When measuring your heart rate, wear the Gear

S snugly above your wrist as shown in the figure below. Do not fasten the Gear S too tightly.

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.

Using the Coaching Feature while Exercising in Running Mode

Use the personalized coaching feature to exercise safely and effectively. You will receive real-time coaching advice that leads you through a safe and effective workout that keeps you fit.

About the Coaching Feature

The coaching feature includes Firstbeat technology to provide personalised exercise guidance. Firstbeat uses training goal analysis that measures the accumulated physical load during a workout and assesses 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 analyse your training history and provide more personalised guidance. A typical workout may start at a lower intensity and sharply increase in intensity towards the end.

Visit www.firstbeat.fi/te for more information.
