SWAROVSKI ACTIVITY CRYSTAL – PRODUCT FUNCTIONALITIES
1. What activities can the Swarovski Activity Crystal track?
The Swarovski Activity Crystal tracks and records all your daily activities including walking, running, swimming, sleeping, and more. After syncing your device with the Swarovski Activity Crystal app you are able to view a daily summary including:
- Steps taken
- Distance traveled
- Calories burned
- Points earned
- Sleep pattern
2. Is my Swarovski Activity Crystal water resistant?
The Swarovski Activity Crystal is water resistant up to 5 atm (50 m) and is suitable for swimming, water sports, and showering. It is not suitable for diving. The Swarovski Activity Crystal should be worn only in combination with the sport band for all sport and water activities, including showering.
3. What are points?
Points are a way to measure your physical activity, both from steps and other activities. For example, if you walk for ten minutes you can earn 100 points depending on your pace. If you run for ten minutes, you can earn three to five times that amount depending on the intensity of your running. The more active you are, the more points you receive.
4. How does the Swarovski Activity Crystal measure my calories burned?
The device estimates your total calories burned each day, based on the most up-to-date medical research on energy expenditure. It includes:
- Calories related to your physical activities like swimming, walking, running, etc.
- The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) of energy needed just to keep your body alive (based on your
height, weight, age, and sex)
The calories burned by your physical activities are based on their duration and intensity, which are measured by the device’s accelerometer system. Even if you have not performed a lot of activity in a day, you will still burn calories related to your BMR, which can be a surprisingly large number.
5. How does the Swarovski Activity Crystal track my sleep?
The first step to improving your quality of sleep is to understand your sleep pattern. Sleep is composed of a sequence of successive sleep cycles that contribute to a healthy regenerative process for your mind and body. Wear your Swarovski Activity Crystal at night if you want to monitor your sleep. It will automatically track the various stages including time slept, duration, and amount of deep and light sleep.
6. How do I see what time it is?
Your Swarovski Activity Crystal is multifunctional and also operates as a timepiece. You can enable
the clock feature and synchronize the time with the time on your mobile device(s) when you initially link to the Swarovski Activity Crystal app.
- The bright dots on the crystal represent 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock reference points
- The constant light represents the hour, while the blinking light indicates the minutes
By default, your activity progress will appear first before showing the clock. You can change this
order anytime in the Swarovski Activity Crystal app under the Device tab.
7. What else can I do with my Swarovski Activity Crystal?
Use your Swarovski Activity Crystal to take photos remotely, to control your music, or to get notified of an incoming call or text message.
To remotely turn on music or take a picture, triple tap on your Swarovski Activity Crystal after choosing the option in the Swarovski Activity Crystal app. To be alerted to incoming calls and text messages with a light pattern on your Swarovski Activity Crystal, choose the call and text notification option in your app.
Please note, these functionalities require your smartphone to be at a distance of max. 1.5 m from the Swarovski Activity Crystal with the Bluetooth on. If you are an existing user, your device should update automatically to get these new features. If not, reinstall the Swarovski Activity Crystal app and sync your Swarovski Activity Crystal.
