Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor Connection

Sylvio LeBlanc -

Instructions (iPhone / iPad):

Wear your heart rate monitor

Follow the manufacturers recommended instructions. Typically, you need to securely tighten the strap and moisten the electrodes.

Ensure the heart rate monitor is not automatically pairing with another host device

A Bluetooth heart monitor is only able to connect to one (1) host device (Phone, Tablet, etc) at a time. If you've previously paired your heart monitor with another device, it might automatically be connecting to the other device. A trick to prevent the other devices from stealing your heart monitor's connection is to turn off the Bluetooth radio from all other nearby host devices.

Close all apps that are paired with your heart rate monitor

Press the Home button two times quickly and you'll see small previews of your recently used apps.

Swipe left to find the app you want to close.

Swipe up on the app's preview to close it

Verify your Apple Health App Settings

In your phone's Health App, navigate to the Sources tab.

Tap on the heart rate monitor that you would like to pair and ensure that its "Update Health Data" option is disabled by turning off the switch.

Verify your phone's Bluetooth Settings

In your phone's Settings App, ensure that the Bluetooth is turned ON.

If you see your heart rate monitor listed under the list of Bluetooth devices in the Settings App, you need to click the more information icon (i) and then select "Forget This Device".

Pair your heart rate monitor with the MotiFIT App

Open the MotiFIT App and navigate to the User Settings tab at the bottom right corner.

Under the Sensors section you will find the option to pair a new heart rate monitor or to test the currently paired sensor's connection.
