Useeme Bicycle Indicator wristbands are pretty simple to use, but there are some important things you should know about. Please read this page thoroughly.

Video manual is coming soon.

Try at home first

Before using your bike turn signal wristbands in traffic, try them out at home. Make a couple of hand signals with both hands to get a feel of how they work.

How to wear Useeme Bicycle Indicator Wristbands

Useeme wristbands on hand

Check the logo on the wristband to determine which hand to put it on.

The logo with a left pointing arrow goes on your left hand, right pointing arrow goes on your right hand.

Wear the wristbands like a watch, exactly on the wrists and not higher up your hand.

Use the same old hand signals you always used.

When you swing your hand out to the side, the wristbands start to flash. When your hand is back on the handle, the flashing stops.

Make sure your hand movements have a certain speed, don’t do them very slowly, but also not extremely fast.

There's no need to lift your hand very high, best keep it around a 45 degree angle to your body.

Stop accidental flashing

To stop any unintentional flashing, simply lift your hand a bit and hit the bike handle. Flashing will stop instantly as you can see on the video.

Checking battery status

The battery indicator LED will tell you how much juice is left in the batteries.

Important safety precautions

Use bike lights

Useeme Bike Turn Signal Wristbands should always be used together with bike lights, especially when riding in the dark. Make sure you have a front facing white light and a rear facing red light. We recommend using steady lights instead of flashing lights. The brighter the better!

Always look around

While Useeme makes your hand signals extremely visible, a hand signal is not always enough to keep you safe. Make sure you look around and behind you before turning or changing lanes.

Wear a helmet

Whenever possible, please wear a helmet. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
