1 Your device has been tested in a controlled environment and certified to be water- and dust-resistant in specific situations and conditions. (Meets the requirements of the water-resistance in a 50 m deep water as described by the international standard ISO 22810:2010 and your device can be used in shallow water. Meets the requirements of the dust-resistance as described by classification IEC 60529 IP6X.) Follow these tips carefully to maintain the water- and dust- resistance of your device. Failure to do so may result in damage to your device.

• Do not expose the device to water moving with force. Do not suddenly apply water pressure to the device, such as when diving.

• If the device or your hands are wet, dry them thoroughly before handling the device.

• If the device is exposed to fresh water, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. If the device is exposed to other liquids, such as salt water, swimming pool water, soapy water, oil, perfume, sunscreen, hand cleaner, or chemical products such as cosmetics, rinse it with fresh water and dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. If you do not follow these instructions, the device’s performance and appearance may be affected.

• Do not disassemble your device. The water- and dust-resistant features of the device can be damaged.

• Do not expose your device to a dramatic change in air temperature or water temperature.

• Do not dry your device with a heating machine like a hair drier.
