Activity Pod

Best for step and activity tracking and monitoring leg movement during sleep*

Available from mid-2020

Additional accessories required to wear and charge it properly:

  • Activity Pod Clip
  • Ankle Strap
  • Dual Slot Charger

How to wear it

You can wear your Activity Pod in two ways:

 

1 – On top of your shoelaces: Place the clip under your tied shoelaces with the single line of the clip pointing toward your toes. Take the Biostrap Activity Pod and put the logo side down in the clip, aligning the single and double lines. Press down until you hear it click into place. This will ensure the pod is secure.

 

Note:If your shoelaces are thick, DO NOT put too many (max 2 lines) between the clip and the pod. It can lead to the pod popping out during activity. To ensure the pod is secure, pull it straight up. It should remain in the clip. If you feel it being loose, please use the ankle strap instead.

2 – With the Ankle Strap. Secure the pod on the strap using the Activity Pod Clip ensuring the single and double lines match and pressing down until it clicks. This way you can still track your activity even if your shoes don’t have laces. Plus, if you have a Sleep Lab subscription, you can measure your leg movement during sleep.

  • Using a micro-USB cord, plug the charger into a power source
  • The lights will turn a white/blue color when connected to power
  • The wristband device goes in the longer slot and the Activity Pod in the shorter slot
  • When you place the devices on the charger, the white/blue lights will turn orange indicating the devices are charging
  • The lights will blink or remain white/blue if the device is not charging properly, or if it is not placed on the charger properly

Checking the remaining battery charge

Keeping your Biostrap devices charged is easy! 🔋 

We recommend charging your device daily and keeping your battery above 20% at all times.

You can always check the battery status of your devices on the Settings page in the Biostrap app.

 

With normal usage, you can expect:

1-2 days from your Biostrap EVO

It is totally normal for the device to stop charging before reaching 100%, and settle between 90-99%.

Now more than ever, personal hygiene is important to maintaining your health. To sanitize your device, remove the sensor from the wristband. Use an alcohol wipe and thoroughly wipe all surfaces of the sensor, inside and outside of the wristband.

Please avoid using harsh chemicals on the Biostrap device. 

It is recommended that you sanitize your device at least once per week, but feel free to do this more often if you would like.

Feel free to check the How to clean your wristband and biosensor video

You can access your Biostrap data on both iOs and Android devices and even on a computer web dashboard.

Watch the How to use the Biostrap Web Dashboard video to learn more about how to use the web dashboard.
