Our products are meant to be worn all day and night, so it’s important to follow a few simple guidelines as you wear and care for your Delvfire.
To keep your band clean and your skin happy, we have outlined the following tips:
Keep It Clean
- Regularly clean your band and wrist—especially after working out or sweating. Rinse the band with water or wipe it with a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Do NOT use hand soap, body soap, dish soap, hand sanitisers, cleaning wipes or household cleaners, which could get trapped beneath the band and irritate skin. Always dry the band well before putting it back on.
- To remove build-up of lotions and oils (such as sunscreen, insect repellent and moisturisers) that can be trapped beneath the band, we recommend that you use a soap-free cleanser and rinse thoroughly and dry well.
- For tough spots, stains or buildup on your band, scrub with a wet, soft-bristled toothbrush.
- For light-colored elastomer accessory bands, minimize direct contact with dark-colored clothing, as color transfer may occur.
Keep It Dry
- Whilst the Delvfire Flare and Pulse are water resistant, it’s not good for your skin to wear a wet band for long periods of time.
- If your band gets wet—like after sweating or showering—rinse and dry it thoroughly before putting it back on your wrist.
- Be sure your skin is dry before you put your band back on.
- Even though Delvfire Pulse and Flare are water resistant up to 2 meters, it’s important to thoroughly dry your band and tracker and remove any debris from your device after wear in the water to avoid skin irritation.
Don't Wear It Too Tight
- Make sure your band isn’t too tight. Wear the band loosely enough that it can move back and forth on your wrist.
- If you use a Delvfire Pulse, you can get better heart rate readings during exercise by wearing the band so it’s secure, but not too tight, and wearing it higher on your wrist (about 2-3 finger widths above your wrist bone). Lower the band on your wrist and loosen it after exercise.
Give Your Wrist a Rest
- Prolonged rubbing and pressure may irritate the skin, so give your wrist a break by removing the band for an hour after extended wear.
- If you have eczema, allergies or asthma, you may be more likely to experience a skin irritation or allergy from a wearable device.
- Whether you have the conditions above or not, if you start to experience redness or skin irritation on your wrist, remove your device. If symptoms persist longer than 2-3 days of not using your device, contact a dermatologist.
- If you sweat for more than two hours while wearing your Delvfire band, be sure to wash your band and your wrist using the directions above to avoid skin irritation.
