Product-related questions (General)
How does HEY work?
HEY uses a clever layout of sensors to detect when you touch your bracelet. This touch is sent via Bluetooth to your smartphone and the HEY app, which then sends the touch to the other connected phone and HEY bracelet via the Internet. HEY uses a small but powerful motor to pull part of the wristband into the casing, producing a gentle squeeze.
What are the dimensions of HEY?
Length HEY body = 5,5cm, height HEY body = 1,4cm (at highest point), total length incl. wristband = 23,5cm
Does the bracelet make any sound when touches are being sent or received?
Even though we have tried to make the sound as quiet as possible, the bracelet makes a sound when you receive a touch. This is due to the motor that subtracts the bracelet; to mimic the unique sensation of a squeeze.
The bracelet makes no sounds when sending a touch.
The touchpad on the bracelet is very sensitive.
We realize that the bracelet is indeed very sensitive. We're looking into the possibility of adjusting the sensitivity with the next firmware update. Make sure to update your app when your app store notifies you about these updates.
My significant other has a very small or large wrist. Will HEY fit him or her?
We have considered most common wrist sizes when deciding on the size of the wristband. HEY will fit wrist sizes varying from 12,5 up to 20,5cm. With a space between the pin holes of approx. 0,2cm.
What is HEY made out of?
ABS plastic and Silicon.
Is it possible to link multiple HEYs in order to send more than one person a touch?
Nope, this is not possible, HEY is a one to one bracelet. A set connects two people, giving them an intimate and private connection through touch.
Is there a distance limit on HEY?
The bracelet is supported by an internet connection, therefore there’s no distance limit between two bracelets. As long as your smartphone is connected to the internet and the bracelet (by Bluetooth).
As for the distance between smartphone and bracelet: that depends on the Bluetooth connection. On average HEY’s Bluetooth range will be about 5 meters. Please be aware that objects within the range between your phone and bracelet, or other Bluetooth connection may have an impact on the signal.
How long will the battery last?
Your HEY bracelet battery should last for one week, depending on the number of touches you send and receive.
What does the squeeze feel like?
Like someone gently squeezing your wrist with thumb and index finger.
