2,40

The diameter of the waterproof patch is 75 mm, the middle part of the patch (∅30 mm) is not sticky.

Prepare the skin to apply the patch

– Clean the area with an alcohol swab.
– Allow the skin to dry completely.
– Apply the patch at least 1 hour before training, swimming or washing.
– Small hairs are not important for the stability of the patch.


Applying the patch

Step 1

Remove the middle part of the backing paper from the back of the patch

Step 2

Place the unglued center of the patch directly over the sensor, then peel off the rest of the backing paper. The patch is flexible, so you can adjust it to make it fit around your sensor. To avoid skin irritation, the edges of the patch should be applied without stretching them. The patch can only be applied once – avoid touching with fingers the sticky side

Step 3

After applying, rub the patch briskly  from the center towards to the edges. Do not rub from edges toward the center, or you may cause the edges to peel away from the skin. Wait one hour before physical activity or showering for best results.

Patch care

To dry the patch that has become wet, pat gently with a towel. Do not use hair dryer- the adhesive is heat-activated, and it may become difficult to remove. Any edges that begin to peel can be trimmed with scissors.

Skin irritation

Patches are made from of high-quality materials – cotton with a hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive. Individuals with sensitive skin, however, may still experience a skin irritation, rash, etc. If skin irritation occurs, remove the patch.

Removing the patch

To minimize discomfor, press the skin at the end of the taped area while gently peeling patch back. Apply baby oil to the patch 5-10 minutes before removing it.
