When running this app for the first time or after performing a data reset, tap START. The 24-hour activity log, Steps, Exercise, Heart rate, Water, and Caffeine trackers 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. Wearing the Gear correctly When measuring your heart rate, wear the Gear snugly on your arm above your wrist as shown in the figure below. Do not fasten the Gear too tightly. <Rear> Heart rate sensor 43 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. 44 Applications 24-hour activity tracker Your Gear can monitor and record your activities during the day and encourage you to stay healthy. Tap S Health on the Apps screen. • Healthy activity: It indicates whether you are walking or running. If you have made more than 100 steps per minute for at least 10 consecutive minutes, the Gear will encourage you to keep going. • Light activity: This indicates the time spent doing light activity, but not hard exercise or inactivity. • Inactive time: This indicates the time spent not moving for one hour or more. To help you stay active, the Gear will prompt you to move after 50 minutes of inactivity. Tap the screen and rotate the bezel to view the details of your activity log. 45 Applications Steps tracker The Gear counts the number of steps you have taken and measures the distance travelled. 1 Tap S Health on the Apps screen. 2 Rotate the bezel clockwise and open the steps tracker panel.

If the mobile device’s location feature is not activated, it is automatically activated. • Before using this feature, pregnant women, the elderly, and young children, users suffering from conditions, such as chronic heart disease or high blood pressure, are recommended to seek the advice of a licensed medical professional. • If you feel dizzy, experience pain, or have difficulty breathing during exercise, stop using this feature and seek the advice of a licensed medical professional. Be aware of following conditions before exercising in cold weather conditions: • 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. • If you have just purchased or have reset the Gear, read the on-screen information about the app and create your profile.
