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. 30 Applications Additional information • The purpose for such data collection is limited to providing the service that you have requested, including providing additional information to enhance your wellness, back up/sync data, data analysis and statistics or to develop and provide better services.

Only use approved batteries, antennas, and chargers. The use of any unauthorized accessories may be dangerous and void the phone warranty if they cause damage or a defect to the device. Although your device is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of equipment and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending, or sitting on it. 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.
