Is the Gear VR safe for children?

This product should not be used by children under the age of 13, as this is a critical period in visual development.

 

Adults should monitor children (aged 13 and older) who are using or have used Gear VR for any of the symptoms described below, and should limit the time children spend using it as well as ensure they take breaks during use.

 

Prolonged usage should be avoided, as this could negatively impact hand-eye coordination, balance and multi-tasking ability. Adults should monitor children closely during and after use of the headset for any decrease in these abilities.
 
Immediately discontinue use if you experience any of the following symptoms while using the headset:

 

seizures, loss of awareness, eye strain, eye or muscle twitching, involuntary movements, altered, blurred, or double vision or other visual abnormalities, dizziness, disorientation, impaired balance, impaired hand-eye coordination, excessive sweating, increased salivation, nausea, lightheadedness, discomfort or pain in the head or eyes, drowsiness, fatigue, or any symptoms similar to motion sickness.
