How To Get The Most Out Of Your Apollo Wearable

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Apollo Wearable

Tips for using聽your Apollo wearable

  • The vibration should be noticeable and comfortable, but not distracting. Always start with the intensity low (where you just start to feel it) and increase from there gently. You wouldn鈥檛 start listening to your music with the volume at 100%, so think about Apollo鈥檚 sound waves in the same way, but for your skin instead of your ears.聽
  • Schedule your calm聽with the聽Scheduling feature in your app. Create a customized schedule that automatically plays throughout your day, so you can get into healthy Apollo routines with less thought and effort.
  • Tapping both buttons on the device one time will pause or restart the last聽Vibe you were using without having to open the app. You can do this anytime including if you wake up in the middle of the night and want to fall back asleep.
  • Use聽it as often as you like.聽The more frequently the Apollo wearable is used, the better the biometric improvements we have seen (particularly when consistently used to get the day started and before bed and with sleep). Using the Apollo wearable聽3+ hours a day, 5+ days a week, during the day and night yields the best results.
  • Wear it your way.聽Apollo Bands and Clips give you the flexibility to try the Apollo wearable in different places and experiment with what works best for you. Try wearing your Apollo device as a band around the ankle at night when you sleep, and clipped to your clothing on a shirt collar, bra strap, or waistband during the day.
  • The wearable is easiest to use when the buttons are facing away from you.
  • The Apollo wearable has airplane mode聽that can be activated to turn off all radio communication from the device.聽It can still be used with the buttons on the last selected settings when in airplane mode. To deactivate airplane mode, just charge your Apollo.
  • It is normal for our bodies to become more sensitive to聽the聽vibrations over time, at which point you may find that lower intensities work better and result in extended battery life.

Be Intentional

Align your聽Apollo Vibe with your desired goal. The Apollo wearable is particularly great for transitions throughout the day such as waking up, falling asleep, going from work to family time, from stress to meditation, and for activities like public speaking.

Using聽Apollo Vibes

Waking up in the morning

Start the morning with聽Focus around 20% intensity for 30-60 minutes.聽Focus in the morning is Dr. Dave鈥檚 personal go-to. For a very gentle wake up, try Recover starting at 30% intensity.

If you鈥檙e really tired and dragging, set the Apollo wearable to Energy with a starting intensity of 10-20% for 5-15 minutes. This聽Vibe is also a favorite for pre-workout and to reduce the need for caffeine during the day.

Finding focus in the late morning into the afternoon

Set聽your wearable to Focus starting at 20% for 15-60 minutes 鈥 continue with this聽Vibe as needed throughout the day to keep your energy up and your head clear. People have told us that this聽Vibe also works really well for relieving headaches and nausea as well.

For creative work or socializing

For clear creative work or social flow (like socializing with friends, family, or colleagues when you鈥檙e tired after work), use Social聽starting at 30-40% from 30-60 minutes.

Bouncing back from intense stress of any kind (ie. physical/mental/emotional)

Set the Apollo wearable聽to Recover starting at 30% for 5-30 minutes.聽

Recovering after a physical workout

Set聽the Apollo wearable to Recover starting around 30% for 5-30 minutes to improve recovery. This聽Vibe also improves recovery within just 2-3 minutes of use in between sets in interval training.

Unwinding for the evening or meditating

Set聽the Apollo wearable to聽Calm聽Vibe starting at 35% for 15-60 minutes for a calm flow state, to deepen meditations, to reduce restlessness, or for aches and pains.

For intimacy and connection

For deep relaxation or for building connection and intimacy with a loved one, try Unwind on the ankle starting at 40-50% for 30-60 minutes.聽

For a good night鈥檚 sleep

Before bed, make sure your聽wearable is on your ankle and set it to Unwind starting at 40-50% for 15-60 minutes.聽

Once you're in bed, set聽the Apollo wearable to聽Sleep starting at 50% for 30-60 minutes.聽
