  • It is harmless but may be sensitive to medical and magnetic devices such an artificial cardiac pacemaker and a defibrillator. If you are using any of these medical devices, keep your device at a safe distance from them and consult with your physician before use. 


  • We recommend not to place your device near magnetic fields. Magnetic objects such as credit cards, passbooks, access cards, boarding passes, or parking passes may be damaged or disabled by the magnets in the device. Keep a safe distance between the device and magnetic objects.
