How do I maintain my Verity Sense in the best possible condition?
Rinse the sensor after each training session with lukewarm tap water. The sensor is water resistant and you can rinse it under running water without damaging the electronic components. Clean the sensor with a mild soap and water solution when needed. Never use alcohol or any abrasive material (steel wool or cleaning chemicals).
Rinse the armband after each training session with lukewarm tap water. You can wash the armband in a washing machine. Check the label on your armband for detailed washing instructions. We recommend using a wash bag. Do not use bleach or fabric softener.
Remember to detach the sensor from the armband before washing. You can easily detach the sensor from the holder by pushing through the hole in the holder:
Keep the charging contacts of your sensor and USB adapter clean to ensure smooth charging and syncing.
Keep the charging contacts of your sensor clean to effectively protect your sensor from oxidation and other possible damage caused by dirt and salt water (e.g. sweat or sea water).
Before charging, please make sure there’s no moisture, dust or dirt on the charging contacts of your sensor and USB adapter. Gently wipe off any dirt or moisture. Do not use any sharp tools for cleaning to avoid scratching. Do not charge the sensor when it’s wet.
Take good care of the optical heart rate sensor
Keep the optical sensor area clean and scratch-free. Scratches and dirt will reduce the performance of the optical heart rate measurement.
Avoid using perfume, lotion, suntan/sunscreen or insect repellent on the area where you wear the sensor. If the sensor comes into contact with these or any other chemicals, wash it with a mild soap and water solution and rinse well under running water.
