Connecting a Heart Rate Monitor

Last Updated: Nov 14, 2018 03:17PM PST
Although a heart monitor is not required, it will provide you with additional feedback about your exertion level, helping you achieve fitness goals such as burning fat, training for a race, or gaining strength.

Turn on the Bluetooth option in your phone's general settings, and follow the steps below to set up your heart rate monitor:

1.  Put on your heart monitor according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
2.  Tap the menu icon ☰, then tap Connect Sensors.
3.  Your heart monitor should appear in the list of devices. Tap it so it shows as "Connected."

You will now see your heart rate towards the top of the home screen. You’re ready to get training! We recommend starting with the Calibration Workout (Set Your Heart Zones), which can be accessed from the My Workouts list. 

Now that your HRM is paired with the PEAR Sports app, allow 5-8 seconds for your HRM to register and connect every subsequent time you open the app. Be sure to wear the device in order for it to register.
