III. Charging

It is recommended to turn off the watch before charging it to avoid any untimely alarm in the event of poor contact, a cable not connected to the mains or a power failure. Charge the watch after each period of use.

Make sure the charging icon is displayed after a few seconds. It then disappears after 5 seconds.
While charging, it is possible to check its progress at any time by briefly pressing the power ON/OFF button.

Using the USB cable

Adjust the watch by matching the magnetic connectors on the back side with those on the USB cable.
Connect the other end of the USB cable to the USB charger and plug the charger into the mains.

V. First boot

Before using the device for the first time, ask your operator for the APN code relating to the SIM card, which is essential for the Internet connection (IP connection). In some cases, it may be necessary to program it manually via a SMS command, cf. Error notifications and solutions

After charging the watch, remove it from its charging system and then press and hold the power ON/OFF button for at least 2 seconds.

The watch enters its initialization phase during which it checks if a software update is available and downloads it automatically.

During this initialization phase, the main screen is displayed, the watch vibrates regularly (double short vibrations) and the different phases are indicated by the symbols described below.
