Using your SmartBand 2 in wet and dusty conditions
Your SmartBand 2 is waterproof and protected against dust, so don’t worry if you get caught in the rain or want to wash off dirt after wearing it for a period of time. But remember that the SmartBand 2 is only protected in fresh and chlorinated water up to 3m for a maximum of 30 minutes. Rinse the SmartBand 2 with fresh water under a faucet and dry the device completely after swimming. Abuse and improper use of your SmartBand 2 will invalidate warranty. The device has Ingress Protection rating IP65/68. For more info, see Water and dust protection.
Your SmartBand 2 has a capless USB port. The USB port must be completely dry before a cable can be connected for charging. If your SmartBand 2 gets exposed to water and the USB port gets wet, wipe the SmartBand 2 dry with a microfibre cloth and shake it several times with the USB port facing downwards. Repeat the procedure until no moisture is visible in the USB port.
Your warranty does not cover damage or defects caused by abuse or use of your SmartBand 2 against Sony Mobile’s instructions. For more information about the warranty, refer to the Important information, which can be accessed via support.sonymobile.com.
