Why won't my Speed and Cadence sensor pair to my phone?
To ensure that your Speed and Cadence sensor pairs directly to the app you have downloaded please ensure you have Bluetooth switched on on your device before attempting to pair.
Do I need to pair to my phone first?
No, you do not need to pair the Speed and Cadence sensor to your phone first, because the sensor uses Bluetooth Smart it is only required to pair to the app on your phone.
I am struggling to get an RPM reading from the Speed and Cadence 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 left crank arm. When attaching to sensor to the left side of your bike frame behind the crank, please ensure that the magnets attached to the wheel and crank arm are inline with the sensor.
Can I pair my Speed and Cadence sensor with another phone or app or ANT+ device?
Yes your Speed and Cadence sensor can be paired with more than one phone/apps. If you are switching between devices or apps then you can still use your sensor for different devices. Simply pair your Speed and Cadence sensor in the same way as before and you now have a Speed and Cadence sensor for multiple devices.
Can I pair my Speed and Cadence sensor with multiple apps and phones at once?
Unfortunately not, once your sensor is paired to the app on your phone it cannot be paired to another app while in use.
