Finding your way with the Sunu Band Compass

The Sunu Band compass uses audio and haptic vibration queues to inform the user which cardinal direction they are facing. The Sunu Band uses various internal sensors to know its position in space, as well as which hand the user is wearing it. Before you begin, please make sure that Voice Service is enabled and that the Sunu Band is calibrated. 

Step 1: Double-click on the Home Button of the Sunu Band to open the main menu of apps. 

Step 2: Swipe on the touchpad to select the Compass. 

Step 3: Double-tap on the touchpad to activate the compass app. (You can also activate the compass from within the mobile app. Simply select “Sunu Band compass” from within the Apps Tab.

Navigating with the compass

It is important that the Sunu Band sensors correctly detect the hand in which you are wearing the device in order to ensure that the compass is working accurately. As soon as you activate the compass:

Step 1: Select Wearing Hand which is listed on Apps on your Sunu Band.

Step 2: Be sure your Sunu Band has been calibrated correctly.

Step 3: Select the option Compass from your Sunu Band or Sunu App, shortly after, lower your hand and arm to your side and wait 10 seconds.

Step 4: Raise your forearm, with the palm of your hand facing downwards and point in any given direction to hear the cardinal direction.

Sunu Voice will announce which direction on the compass we are facing (North, Northeast, East, Southeast, South, Southwest, West, and Northwest). All this accompanied by different vibrations, which allows us to use this functionality even without having activated the voice services. For example, when we focus on the north the Sunu Band vibrates quickly and continuously. When facing south it vibrates in a slower and pulsed way.
