How do I maintain my Grit X/Pacer/Vantage in the best possible condition?
Read the tips below to help you keep your watch in good condition.
Keep your watch clean
Wash the watch under running water with a mild soap and water solution after each training session. Wipe it dry with a soft towel before putting it back on. Keeping the watch clean and dry helps you avoid any skin irritation.
Keep the charging contacts of your watch and cable clean to ensure smooth charging and syncing
Before charging, please make sure there’s no moisture, dust or dirt on the charging contacts of your watch and cable. Gently wipe off any dirt or moisture. Do not charge the watch when it’s wet or sweaty.
Keep the charging contacts of your watch clean to effectively protect your watch from oxidation and other possible damage caused by dirt and salt water (e.g. sweat or sea water). The best way to keep the charging contacts clean is to wash the watch under running water with a mild soap and water solution after each training session. The watch is water resistant and you can rinse it under running water without damaging the electronic components.
Take good care of the optical heart rate sensor
Keep the optical sensor area on the back cover scratch-free. Scratches and dirt will reduce the performance of the wrist-based heart rate measurement.
Avoid using perfume, lotion, suntan/sunscreen or insect repellent on the area where you wear your watch. If the watch comes into contact with these or any other chemicals, wash it with a mild soap and water solution and rinse well under running water.
