Battery
Charging the battery
Charge the battery before using it for the first time or when it has been unused for extended
periods.
Use only Samsung-approved chargers, batteries, and cables. Unapproved chargers or
cables can cause the battery to explode or damage the Gear.
1 Connect the USB cable to the USB power adaptor. Then, connect the other end of the
USB cable to the wireless charger dock.
• Use the supplied wireless charger dock and charger. The Gear cannot be charged
properly with a third-party charger.
• Connecting the charger improperly may cause serious damage to the device. Any
damage caused by misuse is not covered by the warranty.
Ensure that the USB cable is properly connected to the wireless charger dock.
2 Plug the USB power adaptor into an electric socket.
9
Basics
3 Place the Gear into the wireless charger dock.
4 After fully charging your Gear, disconnect it from the wireless charger dock. Unplug the
charger from the wireless charger dock, and then unplug the charger from the electric
socket.
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.
Checking the charging status
When you connect the Gear and the wireless charger dock, the wireless charger dock’s LED
indicator flashes certain colours to indicate the battery level.

Battery charging tips and precautions
• If there are obstructions between the Gear and the wireless charger 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.
11
Basics
• The Gear can be used while it is charging, but it may take longer to fully charge the
battery.
• If the Gear receives an unstable power supply while charging, the touchscreen may not
function. If this happens, disconnect the Gear from the wireless charger dock.
• While charging, the Gear may heat up. This is normal and should not affect the Gear’s
lifespan or performance. If the battery gets hotter than usual, the charger may stop
charging.
• If the Gear is not charging properly, take the Gear to a Samsung Service Centre.
• Avoid using a bent or damaged USB cable.
Wearing the Gear
Putting on the Gear

Basics
Strap tips and precautions
• Be cautious when wearing the Gear. If you have sensitive skin or fasten the Gear too
tightly, you may feel some discomfort.
• Some people may experience discomfort when wearing the Gear for prolonged periods.
• Skin irritation may occur if the strap is exposed to soap, sweat, allergens, or pollutants for
long periods.
• Do not wear the device too tightly. Make sure to keep the device clean and dry. Though
this device has met international safety standards, some people may experience skin
irritation if they are allergic to certain substances.
• Keep in mind the followings to protect the leather strap.
– – Avoid exposing the leather strap to direct sunlight, water, and hot or humid
environments. The leather strap can become discoloured or deformed.

S Health
Introduction
S Health helps you manage your wellness and fitness. 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.
Tap S Health on the Apps screen. 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
48
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.
