To locate the USB charging cable in the sales box, lift the flap holding the ring. You can start using the ring in about 2 hours after the orange charging light has turned off.
Download the Moodmetric app to your smartphone from App Store or Google Play, free of charge. The search word is Moodmetric.
Bluetooth connection is needed when you want to follow your Moodmetric levels in real time, or when you download the data from the ring to the app.
If you have an Android device, also make sure you have turned on location services on your device. Note that Moodmetric does not collect location data.
If you have your phone in flight mode, the bluetooth connection might disconnect. Go to Menu/Select ring to refresh the connection and then return to the main view.
You can wear the ring on any finger. Index finger, middle finger and ring finger usually are the best.
You can change the ring onto another finger or hand any time if needed.
It is worth noting that fingers react to changes in temperature. In cold temperature fingers tend to shrink and in warm temperature fingers tend to swell. At nighttime it is advisable to move the ring onto a finger where it is a bit loose.
Remember that the ring is not waterproof and you need to take it off e.g. when washing hands. Also excessive use of hand lotion or desinfectant might damage the ring. If the ring gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
Go to the Menu again and select your ring Moodmetric-xxxx. Tap Calibrate (e)
The ring should be calibrated only when taking the ring into use or when the user changes.
Note that calibration has succeeded when you return to the main view and the MM level is around 50. After the calibration the ring adjusts to its user in about 12 hours.
The measurement has started when the purple real-time curve begins to draw on the screen. It is the signal of your body’s electrodermal activity. (f).
Tap the calendar icon (g) to transfer the data stored in the ring onto the mobile app.
Make sure the bluetooth connection is on before you do the transfer. The bluetooth connection is on when the purple curve draws continuously.
The battery lifetime of the Moodmetric smart ring is about a week. Charge the ring no later than when the battery level is 10 %. You can check the battery in the Menu.
It is recommended that you charge the battery periodically once a week.
If the ring is left unused for more than a few days, always charge the battery before taking the ring into use again.
In most cases connectivity problems are due to low battery life.
In some phone models the low battery life of the phone impairs the use of bluetooth devices.
Please also read the instructions for interpreting the Moodmetric data.
You can wear the Moodmetric smart ring on any finger. Note that fingers are usually of different size on different hands.
Temperature variation affects the thickness of the fingers.
You can change the ring to another finger at any time.
Fingers tend to swell during the night. It is a good idea to put the ring overnight on a finger where it feels loose.
Cold temperatures can also reduce blood circulation in fingers, causing the ring to become loose and impacting its ability to give a consistent reading.
You get the most out of the Moodmetric data when you use the ring day and night.
You can choose to conduct measurements also periodically. In this case, it is good to note that the battery may be discharged. Always charge the battery before taking the ring into use.
No. The ring is splashproof and should be removed when coming in direct contact with water, such as when washing hands, taking a shower, or swimming.
Sweating will not harm the ring, so you can wear it while doing heavy exercise.
Note that also excessive use of hand lotion or desinfectant might damage the ring. If the ring gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.

If the measurement signal does not appear on the Moodmetric app, or the app does not find the ring, check the following:
If the problem still persists,
Android devices require that location services are turned on. iOS devices do not require this. Moodmetric does not use location data for anything other than creating the connection.
If the ring otherwise works normally, the reason can be:
1) The ring is taken too far from the phone (bluetooth range is max 5 m)
2) If you open another app when the Practice is already running, the Practice stops. Open first any desired app (e.g. a mindfulness app) and only then start the Practice.
3) Some phone models can cut the bluetooth connection e.g. due to other bluetooth devices connected to the phone, or due to other Wifi network traffic.
