Smartphone Compatibility

To set up and use EmbracePlus, your device must have Bluetooth® 5.0 or higher. Although EmbracePlus works with the majority of devices, for optimal use we suggest using one from the list below.

EmbracePlus Technical Requirements


To correctly run and support EmbracePlus your iOS device must have:

  • iOS 13.4 or higher

The device models below have been tested and certified to work with EmbracePlus:

To correctly run the Care app and support EmbracePlus your Android device must have:
