To get started, charge your bracelet for at least 5 minutes. Under normal use, charge the bracelet for at least an hour.
Download the Slightly Robot Android app and open it on your phone. (If you can't find this app in the app store your phone might not be`compatible. Please email us if this is the case.)
In the menu, select Bracelet 1, press Connect and select a bracelet by serial number, then wait a few seconds. You will know the bracelet is connected when the graph starts to display lines. If you have two bracelets and don’t know which bracelet is which, turn one bracelet upside down. If this is the connected bracelet, the graph will change.
Put on your bracelet. Put your hand into the most problematic position. Hold still and press Calibrate. Your bracelet will now vibrate whenever your hand returns to this position. You can add additional positions by pressing Calibrate again.
Repeat steps 3 - 4 with Bracelet 2 if you have a second bracelet.
Now you can experiment with the settings in the Settings menu to your preferences.
The bracelet only works while paired with a phone, so you must keep it within range of the phone in order to function. The Slightly Robot app must be running on your phone so if you turn your phone off and on again you may have to reopen the app.
You should charge the bracelet overnight each night.
The bracelet vibrates whenever you leave your hand in one of your calibrated orientations for too long. You can adjust how long this is with the "Trigger time" value in settings.
Once the bracelet vibrates you should remove your hand from the calibrated position. If you do not, the bracelet will vibrate again. This indicates that it is recording an event of pulling, picking, etc. The first vibration is only a warning. Two or more vibrations in a row will be recorded.
Make sure the bracelet is on the same wrist, in the same direction as when you calibrated it.
Turn your phone's Bluetooth off and on again.
Double-check that the bracelet is plugged-in and has been charging for at least 5 minutes.
Check that your phone's operating system is up to date.
Download the MetaWear Android app and update the firmware. This does two things. Firstly it updates the firmware in case we forgot to before sending your bracelet. Secondly it performs a factory reset, even if you're already running the newest firmware. Please be careful that you have a reliable Wi-Fi connection so that the firmware update isn't interrupted. To avoid problems, do not connect to your bracelet with the MetaWear app and Slightly Robot app simultaneously. You will have to disconnect from the Slightly Robot app before connecting to MetaWear. Resetting your bracelet will not delete calibrations nor logged events.
The bracelet can only connect to one phone at a time, so if you're testing the bracelet on multiple phones, turn off phones you are not using while you try to establish a connection. An ongoing, often invisible, connection to one phone will prevent the bracelet from showing up on a new phone.
If none of this fixes your problem or you've spent more than 20 minutes trying to get this to work please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
