My Wave is frozen with purple lights after the firmware update!

Here's something you can try:
  1. Force close the app. (Instructions for iOS and Android)
  2. Hold down the left (-) side of the light bar (where you'd typically see the blue light) on the Wave for a few seconds, until the purple light turns off.

If the purple light turns off, you're all set! You can go back to using your Wave.

If the purple light does not turn off or if you see flashing purple/blue lights:

  1. Open the mobile app.
  2. The app might automatically start updating within 10-20 seconds. If it asks you to pair, tap Cancel.
  3. If it doesn't automatically update, tap the ⚙️ icon at the top right hand corner to open Settings.
  4. Wait for the update to complete.
  5. Tap Pair if your devices do not start pairing automatically.

If that still doesn't work, never fear! There are two more things you can try:

Delete and reinstall the Embr Wave app on your phone.


Temporarily install the app on a friend's phone or tablet. If you're able to do that, go through the regular account creation steps, including pairing to your friend's device. Once you're paired, the update should being to download within 10-20 seconds. Once you've completed the update, tap the ⚙️ icon to open Settings and tap Unpair before going back to your phone. 

  1. On your phone, toggle Bluetooth a few times and restart your phone (these two steps may be overkill, but may be worth it to be on the safe side!).
  2. Then open the Embr Wave app. If you're taken to the login screen, follow the on-screen instructions as if setting up a new device.
  3. If you're taken to the Embr Wave Unpaired screen again,tap the ⚙ icon to enter Settings.
  4. Tap Pair New Device (below Temp Mode toward the bottom of the screen):
  5. Follow the prompts on the screen to pair your Embr Wave. Make sure you see the green light pattern before tapping Confirm.
