Activity may cause your tracker to get dirty and sweaty, which could compromise heart-rate monitoring and charging capabilities. To remove the build-up of dust, locations, and oils (such as sunscreen insect repellent and moisturizers) that can be trapped beneath the band, on top of the sensor, stuck inside of the charging contacts or transferred to the charging station pins, we recommend the following:

1) Heart-rate sensor · Soak a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and clean the surface of the sensor on the back of the device. · Make sure that no debris from the swab is left behind. · Wipe with a dry cloth or tissue.

2) Charging contacts Use a toothpick, cotton swab, or a toothbrush with rubbing alcohol and lightly clean the charging contacts on the back of the tracker unit. Wipe with a dry cloth or tissue before charging. Make sure not to scrape the contacts with a wire brush or anything metal, since this can damage the plating and cause corrosion.

3) Charging pins · Soak a toothbrush with rubbing alcohol and press against the pins carefully.

· Make sure that no debris from the swab is left behind.

· Carefully wipe with a dry cloth or tissue before connecting to the tracker for charging.

4) Band and tracker unit With a wet / dampened cloth or cotton swab with rubbing alcohol, gently rub the outside of the band and tracker unit with the cloth. Dry the band with a clean cloth, tissue or towel. Do not submerge the band in liquid or use abrasive cleaners.
