2 Wearing the Galaxy Watch Active2 correctly

• When you activate the auto heart rate tracking feature, or when you start to use the exercise features, the Galaxy Watch Active2 will automatically track your heart rate. When measuring your heart rate, wear the Galaxy Watch Active2 snugly on your arm above your wrist as shown in the figure below.

• If you fasten the Galaxy Watch Active2 too tightly, the skin irritation may occur and if you fasten it too loosely, friction may occur.

• 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.

• Cold ambient temperatures may affect your measurement; during winter or cold weather, keep yourself warm when checking your heart rate.

• 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 wear the device on your inner arm so that the sensor is in contact with your skin.

• 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.

• When certain materials come into contact with the back of the Galaxy Watch Active2, your Galaxy Watch Active2 may recognize that you are wearing it on your wrist.

• If your Galaxy Watch Active2 does not register that a motion has occurred for more than 10 minutes, your Galaxy Watch Active2 may recognize that you are not wearing it on your wrist.
