Applications
Health management apps
Introduction
Use the pedometer, exercise, and heart rate apps to monitor and manage your health and
physical condition. Set fitness goals and regularly record and check your progress.
When the Gear is synced with a compatible S Health app, you can use additional features. The
additional features include checking your heart rate logs individually, and more.
• The 24 hours, Steps, Floors, Exercise, Heart rate, Water, Caffeine, and Together
apps are intended only for leisure, well-being, and fitness purposes. They are
not intended for medical use. Before using these features, read the instructions
carefully.
• Any information that is obtained from use of the Gear Fit2 or the Gear Fit2 Software
or any application preloaded within may not be suitable, accurate, complete or
reliable.
Wearing the Gear correctly
When measuring your heart rate, wear the Gear securely on your arm above your wrist as
shown in the figure below. Do not fasten the Gear too tightly.
<Rear>
Heart rate sensor
29
Applications
• 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. 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.

Information to User
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits of a Class B digital
device. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee
that interference will not occur in a particular installation; if this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• Reorient/relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Warning: At very high volumes, prolonged listening to a headset can damage your
hearing.
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for Wireless Devices
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy absorbed by the user
of a wireless device.
The SAR value of a device is the result of an extensive testing, measuring and calculation
process. It does not represent how much RF the device emits. All devices are tested at their
highest value in strict laboratory settings. But when in operation, the SAR of a device can be
substantially less than the level reported to Industry Canada. This is because of a variety of
factors including its proximity to a base station antenna, design and other factors. What is
important to remember is that each device meets strict federal guidelines. Variations in SARs
do not represent a variation in safety.
71
Health and Safety
All devices must meet the federal standard, which incorporates a substantial margin of safety.
As stated above, variations in SAR values between different model devices do not mean
variations in safety. SAR values at or below the federal standard of 1.6 W/kg are considered
safe for use by the public.
This device has been tested and meets RF exposure guidelines when used with an accessory
that contains no metal and that positions the mobile device 0mm from the body.
