Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

First, ensure that you are using the correct USB-C cable provided in the box. If the Pebble still doesn’t charge, check your power source. If charging from a computer, remember that the light indicators will be Blue/Red, changing to Blue/Green when fully charged.

A proper connection is indicated by a tight fit between the Pebble and the adhesive pad snaps. If there’s a white light on the Pebble, it means the adhesive pad is not properly connected. Recheck the connection to ensure it’s secure.

A flashing light indicates there was a problem with the recording during the night. In this case, review the setup process to ensure everything was correctly done and try recording again.

Connect the Pebble to your computer, locate the new myWaves folder in your file system, and select the .EDF file. Then, log in at www.mywaves.tech, go to the upload section, and follow the prompts to upload your recording.

The conversion process can take up to 30 minutes. You will see a “PROCESSING” status on the website, and an email notification will be sent once the sound is ready.

Bluetooth settings are typically found in the device’s settings menu under ‘Bluetooth’. Ensure Bluetooth is turned on, and search for “MUSIC HEADBAND” in the list of available devices to pair.

Ensure that the Pebble is correctly connected to your computer. If you’re using a Mac, the folder might be at the bottom of your Finder. For PC users, check the bottom of your file directory. If the folder is still missing, try reconnecting the Pebble.

No, the adhesive pads are designed for single use only. After use, please dispose of them responsibly, adhering to environmental guidelines.

 No, a full night’s sleep is not required. Recording for 2-8 hours is typically sufficient to generate data for creating your unique sound.

Yes, your personalized sleep sound can be played on any Bluetooth-enabled device. Simply download the sound file to the device or use Bluetooth to connect.

 If your file is too short or lacks enough slow wave data, it could mean that the recording duration was insufficient or your sleep was too fragmented. Try to ensure a longer, uninterrupted sleep period for more comprehensive data capture.

A disconnected adhesive pad can interrupt the data recording process. If you notice a white light on the Pebble, it means the pad was not properly attached. Ensure the adhesive pad is securely fastened to the Pebble and correctly placed on your forehead before sleeping.

 Ensure that the Pebble is fully charged before use. Regular charging and checking the battery level indicator can help prevent recording issues due to battery drain.

Ensure you’re uploading the file in the supported .EDF format. If you encounter a format error, double-check the file type and consider re-exporting the file from your Pebble device.

 

Restart your Pebble and try recording again. If the problem persists, contact our customer support for further assistance and troubleshooting.

Check the file size against the website’s upload limit. If your file is too large, contact our support team for alternative methods to upload your sleep data.

I highly recommend myWaves to anyone who wants to improve their sleep.
