When should I replace the battery?
The Sensor is powered by a replaceable coin cell battery, which is expected to last up to six months. When the sensor fails to turn on, the battery must be replaced.
The Android App shows a battery icon in My Patients dashboard, when your mobile device is next to the Sensor (and directly connected via Bluetooth). You can use the indicated remaining battery life to plan for battery replacement. The iOS App will soon have this function.

The Sensor is powered by a replaceable CR1632 coin cell battery. To replace the battery, simply open the back cover of the Sensor, replace the battery, close the back cover, and turn on the Sensor.
