The new ReadiBand™ from Fatigue Science now allows users to wear it in the shower or take it off when they’re awake!
Vancouver, BC – Oct 3, 2019 – Fatigue Science, a global leader in providing predictive human performance data in heavy industry, elite sports, and military, is pleased to announce that after extensive testing and refinements of the ReadiBand hardware and firmware, users of its latest ReadiBand model can now wear the device more conveniently than ever before.
Specifically, users can now wear the new ReadiBand while taking a shower, and they can also choose not to wear the band when they’re awake, as long as they put the device back on just minutes before sleep.
In short, ReadiBand users can wear their devices as much or as little as they want to.
Compatible models: The updated guidance applies to all new bands shipping from Fatigue Science, as well as any user who already has a band with a serial number beginning with AC, AD, AE, BC, BD, BE, or BE. Users can find their serial numbers on the underside of the band.
Previous guidance had recommended that users take off their ReadiBand while showering. Fatigue Science is now confirming that usage while in the shower is acceptable for the compatible models. However, the ReadiBand should not be worn while swimming or submerged underwater for extended periods.
With enhanced off-wrist sensing, Fatigue Science is also relaxing requirements to wear the ReadiBand for the majority of the day. To get accurate sleep tracking, compatible ReadiBands only need to be worn while the user sleeps, and at least 5 minutes prior to going to sleep.
“Our goal is to make ReadiBand as frictionless as possible for our users, and we’ve heard their feedback loud and clear.”
Robert Higdon, Vice President of Product at Fatigue Science
“Some users love wearing their ReadiBand all the time and wish they didn’t have to take it off when they shower. Other users are almost the opposite: they ask time and again, ‘Why can’t I just wear the ReadiBand when I sleep?’ Now, it’s very satisfying to address both of these longstanding requests at once,” Higdon added. “ReadiBand is designed for one purpose—to capture high-quality, accurate sleep data that can be used for predicting your performance in your waking hours. The message is now: Wear your ReadiBand when you sleep, and keep it on if you want to. It’s that simple.”
