• Do not use soap, cleaning agents, abrasive materials and compressed air when cleaning
your Gear and do not clean it with the ultrasonic waves or the external heat sources.
Doing so may damage the Gear. Skin irritation may be caused by soap, detergents hand
sanitizers, or cleaning agents left on the Gear.
• Clean your wrist and band after exercising or sweating. Clean the Gear with freshwater,
wipe it with a little rubbing alcohol and dry your Gear thoroughly.

your Gear thoroughly.
• If the Gear gets stained or contains any materials, wipe it with a moistened soft bristle
toothbrush.
Use caution if you are allergic to any materials on the Gear
• Samsung has tested the noxious materials found on the Gear through the internal and
external certificate authorities, including the test for all materials which contact with skin,

damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.
To save energy, unplug the charger when not in use. The charger does not have a
power switch, so you must unplug the charger from the electric socket when not in
use to avoid wasting power. The charger should remain close to the electric socket
and be easily accessible while charging.

Battery charging tips and precautions
• If there are obstructions between the Gear and the wireless charging dock, the Gear may
not charge properly. Prevent the Gear and the wireless charger from coming into contact
with sweat, liquids, or dust.
• When the battery power is low, the battery icon appears empty.
• If the battery is completely discharged, the Gear cannot be turned on immediately when
the charger is connected. 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 via a multicharger, charging may take
longer.

Do not bend the band excessively. Doing so may damage the Gear.
To measure your heart rate more accurately with the Gear, wear the Gear firmly
around your lower arm just above the wrist. Refer to Wearing the Gear correctly for
details.
Band tips and precautions
• When you wear the Gear for a long time, skin irritation may occur due to friction and
pressure. If you wearing your Gear for a long time, remove the Gear from your wrist and
do not wear your Gear for several hours.
• Skin irritation may occur due to an allergy, environment factors, other factors, or when
your skin is exposed to soap or sweat for long periods. In this case, stop using your
Gear and wait 2 or 3 days for the symptoms to ease. If the symptoms persist or worsen,
immediately call your doctor.
• Make sure your skin is dry before wearing your Gear. If you wear a wet Gear for a long
time, your skin may be affected.
• If you use your Gear in the water, remove foreign materials from your skin and Gear and
dry them thoroughly to prevent the skin irritation.
• Do not use any accessories except the Gear in the water.

Introduction
Samsung Health records your 24-hour activities and encourages you to cultivate a healthy
habit. When connecting your Gear to your mobile devices, you can save and manage the
health-related data and also receive the useful information about your health every day.
When you exercise for more than 10 minutes while wearing the Gear, it will display an
encouraging message. When the Gear recognises inactivity for more than one hour, it will
notify you and show you some stretching motions to follow. When your Gear recognises you
are driving, it may not display an encouraging message or stretches.
Tap

• Samsung Health features are intended only for leisure, well-being, and fitness
purposes. They are not intended for medical use. Before using these features, read

• The accuracy of the heart rate sensor may be diminished depending on
measurement conditions and surroundings.
m
w
w
w
• 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.
• 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 band 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.

• When you expose the Gear or the battery to very cold or very hot temperatures, the
useful charge may be reduced.
Your Gear is hot to the touch
When you use apps that require more power or use apps on your Gear for an extended period
of time, your Gear may feel hot to the touch. This is normal and should not affect your Gear’s
lifespan or performance.
If the device overheats or feels hot for a prolonged period, do not use it for a while. If the
device continues to overheat, contact a Samsung Service Centre.
The information of Alti-barometer is wrong
• After you calibrate the altimeter, the value for altimeter will become inaccurate after a
period of time. To measure the accurate altitude, tap frequently to calibrate the value
for the altimeter.
• The altitude measured may not be accurate if water (shower and water activity) or foreign
materials enter the atmospheric pressure sensor. If there is any detergent, sweat, or
raindrops on the Gear, rinse it with clean water and dry the atmospheric pressure sensor
thoroughly before use.
Your Gear cannot find your current location
The Gear uses your mobile device’s location information. GPS signals may be obstructed
in some locations, such as indoors. Set the mobile device to use Wi-Fi network to find your
current location.
Data stored in the Gear has been lost
Always make backup copies of all important data stored in the Gear through the Samsung
Gear app. Otherwise, you cannot restore data if it is corrupted or lost. Samsung is not
responsible for the loss of data stored in the Gear.
