How do I connect the ELEMNT to my computer?

ELEMNT uses MTP (Media Transfer Protocol), a popular USB standard used by many MP3 players and Android phones. Connecting to ELEMNT over USB allows you to copy workout files (FIT files) to your PC.


  • Windows: ELEMNT will automatically show up in Windows Explorer and you can browse and transfer files similar to a regular USB flash device. NOTE: You may need to copy the file to your PC before importing into applications like Golden Cheetah, importing directly from the USB may fail.
  • OSX: A MTP client is required to copy files from ELEMNT. Android File Transfer by Google is one of the most popular and easiest to use clients on OSX. Download Here (https://www.android.com/filetransfer/)
  • Linux: Support for MTP is via libmtp, which is generally included with popular desktop Linux distributions. On some systems, ELEMNT should also appear on your Linux desktop's file manager.
