time-keeping features. The iTech Active 2 comes with 3 interchangeable watch faces.

Your iTech Active 2 is a one-touch device, you can interact with your device by tapping the one-touch button to navigate through the iTech Active 2. To activate a feature on your device or to enter certain sections on your device (I.E Settings), simply tap and hold the one-touch button. Your device will vibrate once you enter or activate a feature as well.
Here are a few basics to help you get started:
Exiting a section or app on watch: To exit an area you’re in on the watch, tap on the one-touch button until you see a back button icon. Tap and hold the one-touch button on this icon to exit a section on the watch.
Haptic Feedback Control: Your watch vibrates to alert you of any notifications or reminders you need. But sometimes if you don’t want the vibration, it can become a bother. That’s why you can control if you want vibration on or off for your watch. To turn off vibration on your watch, tap on the one-touch button until you land on the Settings icon. Tap and hold on the one-touch button to enter this section and navigate to the Do Not Disturb icon. Tap and hold on this icon to turn off vibrations. You can turn this off and off as you like but it takes 5 minutes once the feature has been activated to begin working. Shutting off vibration will also provide an even longer battery life.
MAC ID Address: Each iTech Active 2 has a unique ID that can be found on the device. This MAC ID can help you connect your watch to the iTech Wearables app and ensure you’re connecting the correct watch to the app. To find this ID on your iTech Active 2, simply tap and hold on the one-touch button on the main clock face of your device for 3 seconds.

While this feature is Active 2, your Active 2 will continuously record your heart rate every 30 minutes through-out the day.

Fitness And Exercise (Multi-sports Mode)
Track specific exercises, such as running, hiking, football, basketball, and more with your iTech Active 2. Your iTech Active 2 is equipped with 4 sports modes and 4 workout modes. Each exercise tracks specific details such as steps, total time, average heart rate, calories and etc.
Some Helpful Tips:
- For data to be saved, the workout/sport you do must be done Active 2ly for at least 3 minutes. Once you begin a sports mode, the exercise on the watch will show the data points being collected by the workout/sports mode being performed. If you tap on the one-touch button during the mode, you will see the ‘PAUSE’ screen and if you tap on the one-touch button again, you’ll see the ‘STOP’ screen. Tapping on the one-touch button again will take you back to the main screen for the mode being performed.
- You can perform the sport either near your smartphone or away/not connected to your smartphone. Once the device comes within Bluetooth range of your smartphone, it will automatically sync with the app and the mode will appear on your home/dashboard screen in app.
- Sports modes should be done one at a time. After stopping one mode, ensure that the data is synced to the app first. Then start your second sports mode. Doing multiple modes at once, without syncing to the app will cause data you have acquired to be lost.
- The watch will alert you if the activity time is too short to record. Activities not performed for at least 3 minutes will not be saved to the app/watch.
You can view all of the sports and workout modes you have done for the day as well as the calories burned doing each activity within the Calories card found on the main home page of the iTech Wearables App.
For complete workout stats, recap, route and pace information, make sure to use your
smartphone’s connected GPS. Review your exercise history via the ITech Wearables App.
Note: The Connected GPS feature on the ITech Active 2 works with the GPS sensors of your nearby smartphone.
To use Connected GPS from the main home page of the app, tap on the ‘Menu’ icon and select Running Mode. A new screen will appear with a start button will appear (iOS users – You may be asked for location permissions here – Please tap ‘Allow While Using App’ to proceed forward). Tap Start to begin tracking. Connected GPS mode will be enabled until you pause or completely stop it. This screen will showcase your heart rate and calories burned. You will have an option to toggle between this screen and an actual live map of your route. Once completed, you can view your distance traveled and check previous records of your routes.
