Your OxiWear wearable device will start illuminating a red light when the device is charged and powered on.

Your OxiWear charger case lights will start blinking when it’s connected to the power cable and is charging. 

If the charger case is blinking red, your charger is below a 10% battery level. If none of the case lights are on, your charger case battery is dead. In both of these events, you need to remove the OxiWear wearable device from the charger case and charge the charger case for at least 6 hours until all four white lights come up.

A live reading and battery reading should be shown on the mobile application’s home screen if your device is connected.

OxiWear collects location data even when the OxiWear mobile application is closed or not in use so long as Bluetooth AND location services are turned on.

The location data is required to connect to your OxiWear device and it enables the mobile application to generate better data analytics and performance data.

  • This occurs when your device signal is bad and the numbers are invalid. For example, when you are chewing or your head is shaking hard. OxiWear will automatically adjust the wearable red light signal quality and the color of your vitals will change to standard colors when the signal is good. 
  • If your vitals are continuously in grey, shift the device on the helix of your ear. Check the OxiWear mobile app for 10-15 seconds to see if standard colors for your vitals reappear when your device has re-calibrated and been adjusted correctly.

 

  1. OxiWear is a standalone device and the wearable device does NOT need to be connected to the mobile app at all times. It will vibrate on your ear if your blood oxygen hits your set alert threshold. The mobile application is only for your data collection.
  2. When you reconnect your mobile app to your wearable device it will sync and upload all data collected on the device to your mobile application. 

This occurs when your wearable device reconnects to your app after being disconnected for a long period of time. The loading window indicates that your device is syncing and uploading data. 

  • While this window is displayed, please keep the mobile app open until data uploading is complete to prevent loss of data.

 

  1. First, delete your account under profile settings. By deleting your account, you agree to delete all data and personal information collected. Then, delete the app. 
  2. If you delete your app without deleting your account, your data will remain intact.
