Heart Rate Monitor not found

Post by Pablo » Mon Nov 30, 2015 5:14 pm

Hi, I'm new to this forum and it seems no one has posted Powerhouse new topics since 2013, but I'll give it a try.

I'm using the powerhouse with an iphone 4S and everything works fine except the heart rate monitor that for some reason can't be discovered by the iBike app. To be clear, the iphone sees the HR monitor but the app does not. Anyone's familiar with this issue?

Many thanks!

What kind of HR strap is it? Are you using the iBike app or the Powerhouse app? What version of iOS are you running?

Hi,

Thanks much for the quick response!

So I have 2 HR monitors actually, the TRIO 3-in-1 Fitness Sensor and the 60Beat BLUE Heart Rate Monitor. Both monitors work fine with other apps on the same phone but not for the iBike app. And yes, I'm using the iBike app not the Powerhouse one. I'm on iOS 9.

Thanks,
Pablo

Your HR sensors are based on Bluetooth technology.

The electronics used in the Powerhouse not support Bluetooth sensors.

Thanks. Any suggestions for an alternative HR monitor that can be used with Powerhouse?

UPDATE (I guess the answer is any ANT+ device)

Thanks!

Yup, you need an ANT+ HR strap (there are tons of them out there!)
