Troubleshooting Your Sensors

Fitdigits iOS apps are compatible with the Wahoo Blue Speed and Cadence Sensor, the Scosche Speed/Cadence sensor, and other Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE / BT 4.0 / BT Smart) Speed and Cadence sensors.

Pair a Speed & Cadence Sensor

1. Install your Speed and Cadence Sensor on to your Outdoor Bike

Speed + Cadence pairing

Tap Bluetooth Smart ON under Speed + Cadence to pair

2. Open your Fitdigits app and go to Menu > Sensors, and scroll down to Speed + Cadence.

3. Move the pedals on your Bike with the installed sensor. This will turn on the sensor

4. Turn Bluetooth Smart under Speed + Cadence to ON. It will now search for the sensors

5. It will find the sensor and assign a sensor ID.

 

Calibrate the Speed & Cadence Sensor

 

Calibrate your Speed and Cadence Sensor with GPS, similar to the way you calibrate a foot pod. Once you have the sensor installed and paired, tap Menu > Sensors, and under Speed + Cadence tap Calibration (Note: this will only appear if S+C is turned on).

On the cycle calibration page, the process is the same as calibrating a foot pod. Enter in your Calibration factor, and all bike workouts will now use this calibration factor during workouts.

 

Battery Replacement for your Polar H7 Heart Rate Monitor

Polar H7 heart rate monitors are awesome. They run on bluetooth low energy, which for me is great because the fewer devices tracking my workout, the better! However, if you find it’s time to change the battery (you experience erratic heart rate data or drop outs or no data at all), here are your step-by-step instructions. Users rejoice–your inner handy-person awaits!

Directions to change battery:
1. Using a coin, open the battery cover by turning it counterclockwise to OPEN. Remove the cap.

2. Using a sharp edge (knife), lift the battery out from inside the cap. See Photo 2.

3. Insert the battery (CR 2025) inside the cover with the positive  side against the cover. Note: the positive side is also the side with the writing; insert the battery with writing side down. Make sure the sealing ring is in the groove to ensure water resistance. See Photo 1.

4. Place the cover back into the connector. Be sure to do this carefully by lining the arrow on the outside of the lid directly with the dot on the connector next to OPEN.

5. Use the coin to turn the cover clockwise to CLOSE.

Note: When changing the battery, make sure the sealing ring is not damaged, in which case you should replace it with a new one. You can purchase the sealing ring/battery kits at well-equipped Polar retailers and authorized Polar Services.

For more information about using the Polar H7,  read the manual.
