Setting Up Your Eclipse Rx
Before you begin using your Eclipse Rx UV sun monitor, you must connect it to your Eclipse Rx account with a phone or tablet. Connecting your device allows it to sync data back and forth with sun monitor. Your data syncs to your EclipseRx dashboard, which is where you can see your daily exposure, track your steps, log sunscreen applications, and more.
While creating an Eclipse Rx account you’ll be asked for personal information such as age, and gender. We use your answers for various calculations, such as your personalized total UV exposure percentage.
Setting Up Your UV Sun Monitor on Your Phone or Tablet
To get started:
1. Make sure the Eclipse Rx app is compatible with your phone or tablet by checking here.
2. Find the Eclipse Rx app in one of these locations, depending on your device:
• The Apple App Store for iOS devices such as an iPhone or iPad.
3. Install the app.
4. When the app is installed, open it and tap Sign Up to create your Eclipse Rx account.
5. Once your account is setup, follow the onscreen instructions to select your skin type.

Syncing Your UV Sun Monitor Data to Your Eclipse Rx Account
Your Eclipse Rx UV sun monitor will regularly sync with your dashboard. The dashboard is where you’ll track your UV exposure and your steps.
The Eclipse Rx uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to sync your UV sun monitor to your phone or tablet.
Each time you open the Eclipse Rx app, it syncs automatically if the paired UV sun monitor is nearby. To confirm your UV sun monitor is paired to your app, refer to the pairing icon on the left of your dashboard.
You may also tap the UV sun monitor on the logo. If the device flashes green, you are paired. If the device flashes blue, you are not paired.
