BIKE SPEED SENSOR
The Cardiosport ANT+ Bike Speed sensor is lightweight sensor that detects speed and distance and connects to ANT+ bike computers, watches and devices.
Set Up Guide
This is a brief guide to setting up your Bike Speed/Cadence sensor with your chosen cycling app or ANT+ device.
How to install the Bike Speed Sensor on your bike
Position the Speed Sensor on the front or rear forks using and attach using the two cable ties provided so that the sensor is parallel to the wheel.
Attach the magnets to either the front or rear wheel spokes directly in line with the Speed sensor.
The green LED light will flash when it detects speed and is now ready to pair to your ANT+ device.
Now your Speed or sensor is ready to be paired with your smart phone or ANT+ device.
How to pair the Speed sensor to an ANT+ device
Activate your Speed sensor by spinning the crank or rotating the wheel once you have attached the sensor to your bike. A green LED light will flash when cadence is picked up. If this doesn't happen press the button next to the LED.
Follow the pairing instructions on your ANT+ device and search for Speed sensor
Some ANT+ will automatically pair to a sensor when it is activated and display an ANT+ ID code.
When your ANT+ device shows that your Speed osensor has paired and displays an ID code, your sensor is now paired. There is no need to repair your Speed sensor to your ANT+ device as it will automatically pair when the sensor is activated.
Your good to go
Once you have finished pairing your Cardiosport Speed sensor to your chosen fitness app, or ANT+ device. your are good to go!

Why won't my Speed sensor pair to my phone?
To ensure that your Speed sensor pairs directly to the app you have downloaded, please ensure you have an ANT+ adapter installed or that your phone is ANT+ compatible
I am struggling to get an MPH/KPH reading from the Speed sensor and it doesn't show up under the list of sensors?
This can be caused by the sensor not being attached securely to your bike forks or the magnet is not correctly inline with the sensor. Please ensure that the magnet is directly inline with the sensor and the LED light flashes when the magnet is detected. If paired to a GPS ANT+ bike computers or cycling apps, check to see if the device is using GPS for speed, on some ANT+ devices you will need to select the ANT+ Speed sensor as the source for bike speed and distance.
Can I pair my Speed /sensor with another phone or app or ANT+ device?
Yes your Speed sensor can be paired with more than one ANT+ device or phone/apps. If you are switching between devices or apps then you can still use your sensor for different devices. Simply pair your sensor in the same way as before and you now have a Speed sensor for multiple devices.
Can I pair my Speed Sensor to my phone app and ANT+ device at the same time?
No this is not possible because the Speed sensor is ANT+ only and can only be paired to an ANT+ compatible device.
