Getting Started...

Initial Steps to Take

You’ve received your watch – now what ?

This first section will guide you through all the steps of charging it, downloading the app for your phone and syncing it for use.

Charging Your Watch

To turn on your Cardiac Watch, hold your finger to the silver button for three second on the bottom face of the watch and the watch will turn on.  If the watch doesn’t come to life, then use the steps below to wake it up.

NOTE:  If your watch just arrived, your Cardiac Watch typically be in hibernation mode when it arrives and to turn it on, you’ll need to charge it using the steps listed below.    

To do this use these instructions.

1.  Your watch charges by plugging directly into a standard USB port and can be either from a household current or a 12 volt vehicle current.  You can plug your watch into your USB port on your computer, or a USB charging block such as that came with your cell phone.

2.  The male USB end of the watch is located at the end of the watch face in the band.  To access this, simply pull the band from the side of the watch with the silver button on the face.  The first time you do this it may be a bit firm or hard to do, but it will get easier one the band has softened up around the area.

3.  Plug in the watch to the USB port.  As soon as it is correctly plugged in, the watch will come to life and you will see a moving charge meter on the face of the screen.

4.  Your watch only requires a maximum two hours to charge.  It’s a good idea to fully charge it before using it for the first time.  Do not leave your watch on charge mode for long periods of time as it can damage the battery.  

5.  Once your watch is charged, put the band back on and it is ready to use.

Putting Your Watch On

Your Cardiac Watch is just like a normal watch and is designed to be as easy as possible to put on even for people with arthritis.  The band will soften up and become more supple as you wear it.

It is important for the Cardiac Watch to receive accurate readings that the watch is snug enough that the back of the watch face is against your wrist.  If the watch is too loose it may not be able to provide accurate readings.   That does not it mean it should be so tight it is uncomfortable or cuts off circulation.

There are essentially two layers of features which are displayed as screen views on your watch.  The first layer can be thought of as a folder that contains the actual apps that make the watch function.   The second layer is the actual apps such as the ones that measure your heart beat and sleeping patterns.   The silver button moves you forward in cycling through the ” folders ” and ” apps “.  When you want to access an app – you simple hold down the silver button and it will access the program.

It will take a little time to get used to the way the watch works as there is a lot of technology and features packed into one small device but with a little practice and time you’ll quickly get the hang of it.
