Gear VR with Controller - What should I prepare to use the Gear VR controller?


A: Firstly, connect the wrist strap.


When you connect the wrist strap to your controller, you can use the controller safely without dropping it.


1. While pressing on the backside of the controller, slide the battery cover in the direction shown below to open it.


Note: Do not bend or twist the battery cover excessively. Doing so may damage the battery cover.






2. Insert the wrist strap loop into the wrist strap connection hole and attach it to the hook to secure it.






3. Insert batteries with the positive and negative terminals properly aligned with the + and symbols on the controller.


4. Place the battery cover on the controller and slide the battery cover back until it clicks back into place.


Note: If the indicator light flashes red while using the controller, replace the batteries


Do not recharge the provided batteries (AAA batteries).
