How to wear Embrace

It should fit snugly above the wrist joint.

  • Loosen the band by sliding the buckle towards the Embrace watch face.
  • Wear the Embrace on the dominant wrist. (More info: Which wrist should I wear Embrace on?)
  • Tap the surface of the Embrace watch once to see the current time.
  • The Embrace should fit snugly so that the three sensors on the bottom remain in constant contact with the skin. Adjust the tightness of the band to ensure that the Embrace is comfortable and does not shift in position on the arm during movement.
