Getting Started Watch

Welcome to AngelSense!

Step 1: Charge the device: When connecting the device to the charger it should turn on automatically, with the watch’s screen powering on. It will take approximately 1 hour for a full charge of up to 16 hours (depending on usage).

Step 2: Download the AngelSense App.

Step 3: Log In to the AngelSense App for further guidance.

Step 4: Place near a window or go outside to get location updates to your app.

Step 5: As soon as your device is charged and turned on, take the device out in transit at least 5-10 miles outdoors away from the charging location.
