Product: Awair 2nd Edition



Your Awair 2nd Edition’s display can be fully customized to show your current air quality readings. You can control how Awair displays your current air quality readings from the app and by interacting with the product itself.


This overview includes:


  • Bluetooth 4.1 enabled smartphone or tablet, running iOS 9 (or later) or Android (4.4 or later) with Awair app installed in it.

  • Awair Element device plugged into power supply and connected to app via blutooth


Awair 2nd Edition’s Display Modes

Awair 2nd Edition allows you to set your default display to show the current value of an individual air quality factor: Temperature, Humidity, CO2, Chemicals, and Dust (PM2.5). You can also set the default display to show current time like a clock or to show Awair score indicating overall air quality status.
