Hold down the power button for 3 seconds. The green power light will come on and the blue Bluetooth light will flash. If the green power light does not come on, the device needs to be charged (for at least 2 hours).
1. Press the power button for 3 secs
Power light and bluetooth light will come on
2. Place it behind your ear
Ensure the hole of the ear piece is pointing into your ear hole.
Note: The lights will go off (after 10 seconds). The device is on, but in a dormant phase. It will continue to monitor your sleep patterns, but will only activate when it detects snoring activity.
This is to avoid the lights from disturbing other people.
To check if it is “on”, press the power button briefly. The lights will come on for 10 seconds to indicate that it is powered up and working.
Hold down the power button for 3 seconds. All the lights will go off and the device will vibrate slightly to indicate it is off.
BATTERY STATUS INDICATOR
The green light indicates a full battery. Yellow means it requires charging and red indicates that the battery is completely empty.
Note: You can get the exact battery level from the Snore Circle app.
ADJUSTING THE EAR PIECE
You can rotate the ear piece to use the device on either ear. Always ensure that the hole of the ear piece faces into your ear hole.
PLACING THE DEVICE ON YOUR EAR
Bend the device slightly so you can place the “tail” piece behind your ear and the ear piece section in your ear recess. Slide it down and ensure that the ear piece is in line with your auditory canal (ear hole).
TESTING THE DEVICE
Follow these steps to test the device.
1. Ensure that the device is fully charged.
2. Turn it off and wait for the vibration to indicate it is off.
3. Turn it back on and place it behind your ear.
4. Lie down on your bed and make a repetitive snoring sound for 10 seconds.
5. The device should detect your snoring and emit tiny sounds and vibrate.
ADJUSTING THE SENSITIVITY & STIMULUS
The effectiveness of the device improves the more you use it. It can take a while to adjust to the micro sounds and tiny vibrations so you may wake slightly and “remember” the beeps you heard during the night. You should notice it less and less over time but you can change the sensitivity of the device (i.e. how quickly it responds to snoring noise and bone vibrations) and the stimulus (i.e. how loud it beeps and vibrates).
If it is not intervening early enough in the snoring process or your partner complains about your snoring, you should turn up both the sensitivity and the stimulus.
Some people snore quite lightly or actually just breathe heavily and noisily. In this case make sure the sensitivity is set to “Strong” so it picks up your heavy breathing and interprets it as “snoring”.
If you are a light sleeper and find it is waking you too often you can turn the stimulus down to “Moderate”.
To adjust these settings, load the Snore Circle app on your mobile or tablet and ensure that it is synced to your Snore Circle device and follow these steps:
