Extended Mode is here. 

 

Today, we are releasing our new 30-minute Extended Mode to all Wavers, along with a suite of other new features.  Extended Mode is the most important product update that we’ve made to date, and we designed it based on your feedback. It's available now for download in the Embr Wave mobile app. ---

What's new?

Stopwatch

The biggest update is a new Extended Mode that lasts 30 minutes and is available for both cooling & warming (more details below). 

Extended Mode isn’t replacing Quick Mode. But it’s designed for when you want a more sustained cooling or warming session and don’t mind the temperature coming intermittently.

 This new release also includes the ability to toggle your Embr Wave into LED Night Mode (for dimmer lights while you're in the dark), the ability to selectively disable warming or cooling, and many other enhancements. 

 

 

1. Extended Mode

Embr Wave Extended Mode

The default 3-5 min temperature sessions are great, but sometimes you need something more sustained.

Designed for when you want a longer thermal assist — and don't mind the temperature coming more intermittently — Extended Mode gives you cooling or warming over a full 30 minutes. You can toggle it on/off anytime in the Settings of the mobile app:

After you've toggled on Extended Warming or Extended Cooling, all future sessions will last 30 minutes. They will consist of short bursts of cold every 1 min (or short bursts of heat every 30 sec).

To easily let you see that you're running an extended session, the Light Bar on your Embr Wave will shine a slightly different color than usual (turquoise for Extended Cooling, and magenta for Extended Warming).

As usual, you can adjust the intensity level by holding down the left or right side of the light bar until it feels good, or stop a session by clicking the middle of the light bar. To revert back to default sessions, simply toggle it off in the mobile app.

 

 

2. LED Night Mode

We've also added the ability to toggle your Embr Wave into LED Night Mode.

So when you want a dimmer light at night, you can now have one.

3. Disable Warming or Cooling.

You can now toggle on a "Warming Only" mode or a "Cooling Only" mode.
