Q.At what temperature is the alert triggered?

A.Documents published by the WHO on deep body temperature agree that a health risk arises when the core temperature of the body exceeds 38°C. The alert is triggered by an algorithm based on this recommendation, as well as data collected from trials in 2019 and products sold in 2020 and onward.

Q.Why did the alert go off when I had no symptoms?

A.The alert is triggered to prevent heat stroke so you may not yet feel any symptoms at the time of the alert.
According to feedback that has been received, 70% of the alerts are triggered before any symptoms appear.
In such situations, even if you are not aware of it, your core body temperature may continue to rise. It’s therefore important to hydrate, take a break, and check your physical condition before continuing your activity.
