• If you feel discomfort while using the device, stop using it and remove it from your wrist.
• To avoid device malfunction, skin discomfort or damage, and battery draining, an initial warning will appear on the device if it reaches a specific temperature.
• If the device temperature continues to rise, a second warning will appear, and all device functions except outgoing 911 calls will be turned off.
• If you are on a call with 911 when the second warning appears, the call will remain active until you end it.
• If the device temperature rises further, a third warning will appear, and the entire device will shut down.
• Any 911 call that is connected at the time will remain active until you end the call.
• However, no new calls, including 911 calls, can be made until the device cools down to a specific temperature.
