Understanding Collected Data

The Cardiac Watch is designed to aid users in getting a better understanding of their cardiac functions.  The totals and numbers should be used as a guidance only and every person will have different readings based on their age, the health condition and a wide variety of factors.

Accessing the Settings of the App

The settings screen is located in the button at the bottom of the menu that says DEVICE and is shown as a cardiac watch.  You can see a screen shot of that below.

Tap that button and you will be taken to the settings screen where you can change and set the following.

  1. Notifications on or off.   This is the notification for texts and incoming phone calls from your smart phone.  Green means on, white means off.
  2. Metric or Imperial Reporting.  For American customers, you can change the settings from the default metric settings to imperial measurement here.  Green is imperial, white is metric.
  3. All Day Heart Rate.  This tells the watch to continually check your heart rate if green, or to only check when instructed to do so manually if white.  The main reason for turning this off is to save battery life or if you are not wearing it.
  4. Smart Alarm Clock – Set an alarm for any given time.
  5. Sedentary Reminder – Set the typical times when you are awake and then set the maximum time you want to be reminded that you need to stand up and move rather than sit.  Choose between 45 and 180 mins.
  6. Screen Saver Time – change the length of time that the screen stays lit up on your watch.  By default it’s set to 5 seconds to maximize batter life but can be change to as long as 30 seconds.
  7. Sync Data – Forces the watch to do a manual sync with the app and update all information as well as pushes any changes you make to the watch’s settings via the app.
  8. Unbind Bracelet.  This when selected disconnects the watch from the Bluetooth connection it has with the app and your phone.
  9. Clear Bracelet Data.  This erases all data stored on the watch.
  10. Clear App Data.  This clears all data stored on your phone and the app.
  11. Firmware Upgrade.  Upgrades the operating software on your watch if there is an update available.
