Welcome to Embr Wave!
Embr Wave is a thermal wristband that provides thermal relief at the touch of a button.
For best results, wear Embr Wave on your inner wrist, by your pulse point.
Whenever you’re feeling uncomfortably warm or cold, simply hold down the Light Bar for a session of cool or warmth.
Embr Wave provides warming or cooling in the form of rhythmic waves that are designed to maximize your thermal comfort. Use this sensation to warm up or cool down — anytime, anywhere.
What’s in the box?
Your Embr Wave box includes:
- Embr Wave thermal wristband
- Micro USB charging cable
- Storage pouch
- Quickstart guide
Turning on and off
- Click anywhere on the Light Bar to wake up The Light Bar will turn on.
- Hold down the left (blue) side of the Light Bar to start cooling, or the right (red) side to start Release when the device has reached a pleasant temperature.
- In Quick Mode, each cooling session lasts 3 minutes and each warming session lasts 5 You can repeat sessions at any time.
- To turn off, firmly press the middle of the light bar until you feel both sides
- Need prolonged comfort? Switch to Extended Mode using the mobile app (see Page 9).
3. ADJUSTING THE TEMPERATURE
There are multiple levels of warming and cooling.
During operation, you can hold down the left side of the Light Bar to lower the temperature, or the right side to raise it.
For coarser adjustments, you can also click the left or right side of the Light Bar.
When in Warming Mode, Embr Wave will glow red. When in Cooling Mode, it will glow blue.
When you’ve reached the maximum cooling or warming temperature, the Light Bar will blink to let you know!
4. UNDERSTANDING THE LIGHT BAR
The Light Bar will indicate the status of your Embr Wave.
When you hold down the left (or right) side of the Light Bar, Embr Wave will ramp up to increasingly strong cooling (or warming). The Light Bar will animate to show that Embr Wave is ramping up.
Because the human body is more sensitive to temperature contrast than to static temperatures, Embr Wave cools and warms in rhythmic waves.
PRO TIP: If you look closely, you’ll notice that the Light Bar pulses brighter and dimmer to show you the rhythm of the thermal waves.
5. THE LIGHT BAR, CONTINUED
Occasionally, Embr Wave will not be able to fulfil the temperature request.
Too cold to start
If the device is too cold, a yellow and cyan light pattern will slowly fade in and out to indicate that it needs to warm up — wear it against your skin for a few seconds, and you should be all set!
Too warm to start
If Embr Wave is too hot to start a session, a yellow and orange light pattern will slowly fade in and out. Let it rest 3-5 minutes, or until the Light Bar turns back off.
If your device overheats, the entire Light Bar will flash orange and red. If this happens, wait to use your Embr Wave until it has cooled down.
When the Light Bar flashes orange, Embr Wave is running low on battery.
6. TIPS FOR COOLING
When in Cooling Mode, the top of the device may get warm, because Embr Wave is pulling heat away from your skin. For best results:
- Avoid touching the metal during Cooling
- Think of Embr Wave as a friend who is working hard for you and may need rest for 3-5 minutes between cooling
- Let Embr Wave breathe! Leave the metal body uncovered to facilitate heat dissipation (e.g., not under your sleeve).
- Wear the wristband loosely while you aren’t actively
Note: In Warming Mode, it's the opposite: you'll want to keep as much heat in as possible! So for best results, cover your device with your sleeve while warming.
7. KNOCK TWICE
Shortcut to start again
If you knock twice with your knuckle on the device after a session has recently ended, a new session will start!
Shortcut to Extended Mode

To set Extended Mode as your default mode, you’ll need the Embr Wave mobile app (see Page 9).
Knock twice to toggle Extended Mode (30 min).
